            An indictment is a formal written document that is drawn up by a prosecutor accusing a designated person of having committed a felony or misdemeanor and which is presented to a Grand Jury so that it may take action upon it. The potential for persons with similar or the same name in the community exists. All persons are innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
