Menna v. New York - 423 U.S. 61 (1975)
U.S. Supreme Court
Menna v. New York, 423 U.S. 61 (1975)
Menna v. New York
Decided November 17, 1975
423 U.S. 61
Petitioner's guilty plea to a charge of refusal to answer questions before a grand jury after having been granted immunity held not to bar his claim that the Double Jeopardy Clause precluded the State from haling him into court on that charge after he had been sentenced to a jail term for contempt of court for his failure to testify before the grand jury.
Certiorari granted; 36 N.Y.2d 930, 335 N.E.2d 848, reversed and remanded.
