So a case can still show indicted on charges and go straight to a court. My husband was arrested on January 5th 2015. A month later he was still in jail and twice in front of a judge, the judge said she could not recommend a pr bond at that time because the state had nothing on the case. A little after a month, I was finally able to come up with the money to get him out of jail. Still at this time the state had nothing on the case. After his release from jail it was less than a month and all of a sudden there was an indictment on the case with a court date. I don't think he was indicted by a grand jury, because it seems like the grand jury wouldn't even have enough time to do so. His case has been a very wishy washy and weird case. Every lawyer we have spoken to says nothing makes sense.
Is there a way we can tell the difference if my husband's case was an indictment by grand jury or if it was just brought by information for an indictment?
