Daniels’ case will now be heard by a grand jury.

“It was in our best interest not to have the hearing today. Ms. Daniels will remain in custody pending Grand Jury action that could be in a few months,” her attorney Leslie Ballin said.

There’s no timeline on when a Grand Jury will review Daniels’ case.
