10/31/15 I turned in my notice to an employer who was doing wrong in his business. As an accountant I knew I had to leave. I left. 2 weeks later I was arrested on embezzlement charges. I got a lawyer. today I received a call from my lawyer stating that he was pretty sure that the grand jury had indicted me so to be aware that I would be arrested again. I don't understand why I need to go back to jail and bond out a second time for the same charges. Could you please help to ease me mind on this?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
