Albany - LaJuana Woods, the ADICA Board member who accepted a $50,000 dollar facade grant for her restaurant, will be given the chance to tell her side of the story to a grand jury.

In a rare move, prosecutors will allow a potential criminal defendant the opportunity to speak directly to grand jurors.

D.A. Greg Edwards says she qualifies for the privilege because as an ADICA Board member, she's a public official.

Woods has agreed to pay back the grant money which was given to her by former downtown manager Don Buie.

Buie is awaiting trial on charges he misused public money.

Woods has not been charged with a crime.
