The remaining 10 indictments from a Martinsville Grand Jury have been unsealed.
There were 109 issued against 56 defendants on Feb. 8, but 10 were sealed to enhance the safety of law enforcement officers arresting the defendants named in the indictments and to prevent the defendants from obtaining notice of arrest warrants before being arrested.
Indictments are not an indication of guilt and present only one side of a case.
