What does it mean to be indicted in Texas?
Gary Churak's Answer
Under Texas law an indictment is the formal criminal charge of felony against a defendant. What happens is a grand jury, which is comprised of a group of citizens, will convene and hear a brief presentation by the district attorney, and the district attorney will ask for a true-bill of indictment. An indictment doesn’t mean you’re guilty. Basically what it means is that there is probable cause, there is a possibility this criminal case happened, and it should be moved to the court system. When someone is no-billed by the grand jury that basically means that there is no evidence whatsoever to support a charge against them.
