Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Typically, when you see that terminology, the original charges were dismissed because they were superceded (replaced) by an indictment. So the case continues, but now it's been firmed up, so to speak.

The charges may or may not be the same depending on what the grand jury found.
