Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 11, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa BUY ALL ' THREE AND SAVE JO The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Thins., July ll, 1971 Size of Indictments Reason for Delay By Roland Krekeler Special Prosecutor Garry Woodward kept referring to paper work as one reason why the report of the grand jury investigating the police department was delayed from day to day. Some idea of what he meant became clear Wednesday when the report and indictments handed down late Tuesday afternoon became public. The indictments against six present and former police officers, centering around alleged perjury concerning other officers, turned out to be a total of 255 pages, 249 of them outlining the charges and giving extensive quotations containing alleged perjury. One page of each of the indictments listed the counts in the indictment, listed the witnesses who were examined before the grand jury before the indictment was returned and set the bail. Not the End The total of 255 pages made public does not end the paper work involved in the report. In addition there were an unspecified number of pages summarizing the testimony of the witnesses. Those pages, kept secret except for those who are parties to the case, appeared to be about equal in number to the pages that were made public. The two lengthiest indictments are against Public Safety Commissioner James Steinbeck, a former detective, and Kenneth Millsap, a detective until he was suspended after being indicted. Millsap’s indictment is 95 pages long, including the sum- ternary page, and Steinbeck’s is 90. ments are members of the grand jury. Although this is not common, it is easily explained by the fact that the charges center around alleged perjury before the grand jury. Also listed as a witness is County Atty. William Faches. He would be needed as a witness since some of the perjury charges involve sworn testimony to him during an earlier investigation of the police department. Won’t Prosecute His being listed as a witness precludes his prosecuting the cases. It is believed members of his staff also will not be involved in the prosecution and that Woodward or some other member of the attorney general’s staff will be in charge of the prosecution. The general report of the grand jury is four pages long. The pages are typed double space on legal size paper.

Fryer Handed Over To Iowa Authorities SIOUX CITY (AP) - One of three brothers charged in connection with a quadruple murder in northwest Iowa has been returned from Wyoming whcfc he fled after his escape from an Iowa jail. James Fryer, 21, Sioux Falls, S 0., will be turned over to Iowa authorities by the federal government, said Asst. U.S. Atty. Robert Sikma. He said such action would bt1 interfere with the federal case against Fryer. Fryer appeared before U.S. Magistrate David Blair in federal court in Sioux City Wednesday night for a preliminary commitment order. The appearance was in connection with a federal charge of interstate transportation of a stolen motor vehicle, which was filed against James Fryer and his brother. Allen Fryer, 30. Power Outages Reported in Linn County Parts of Cedar Rapids and Marion and the areas of Hiawatha, Springville, Whittier, Stone City and Center Point were without electrical power for varying periods of time Wednesday afternoon and evening. A spokesman for Iowa Electric Light and Power Co. said most of the outages were due to lightning strikes. “It was a quite severe electrical storm,” said the Iowa Electric spokesman. He said the outages began about 3:30 p.m., and that power had been restored to most areas by 7 p.m. In most cases, he said, the outage lasted for about an hour.
