what does indictment mean?

after a person is indicted, can the charges be dropped?







badd302
Nope. If you are indicted, that means they have enough evidence to charge you with a specific crime. Before that, charges could be dropped. But once you are indicted, the process begins to the end.


Citicop
An indictment is the verdict returned by a Grand Jury. Their job is to examine the case (as outsiders) and determine if there is enough evidence to warrant the case proceeding to trial. The case could still be dropped (the prosecutor has absolute discretion about when to drop a case), but it is unlikely at that point. It is much more likely to get a plea bargain than it is to just get dismissed.
