facebook pixel I’ve been indicted…does this mean that I will be found guilty? | Denver Criminal Defense Attorney | Denver Federal Criminal Defense Attorney Colorado

Absolutely not.  A grand jury returned an indictment against you, but never heard your side of the story.  Your attorney never had the opportunity to challenge the prosecutor’s witnesses or evidence.

Most importantly, a grand jury only needs to find probable cause that a crime has been committed.  To convict, a prosecutor will need to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.
