(PUB. NOTE: Readers are reminded that an indictment is not a judgment of guilt but rather a written, formal accusation issued by a Grand Jury that indicates that enough evidence exists in the jurors’ minds — as presented by the District Attorney General — to justify binding that person over for trial. In America, all persons are considered innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.)
