The Cannon Courier must stress that an indictment by the Grand Jury is not a finding of guilt. It simply means that the Grand Jury felt there was enough evidence to move the case forward for trial.
Following their arraignment Friday, those indicted will return to court on July 9 to enter a plea to the charges they face.
