Remaining indictments unsealed in Martinsville

  • 0

Indictments against 31 people were sealed on July 25 when a Martinsville Circuit Court grand jury handed down 177 indictments.

Those indictments were sealed in order to enhance the safety of law enforcement officers who must arrest the defendants named in the indictments and in order to prevent the defendants from obtaining notice of arrest warrants prior to being arrested. Those indictments were unsealed on Monday and were part of 120 direct indictments and 57 certified indictments.

An indictment is not an indication of guilt. It is the grand jury’s determination that enough evidence exists to hold a trial.
