In the matters of massage parlor arrests, it's crucial to understand how sealed indictments work and how they can affect getting your loved one out of jail.
A sealed indictment can be problematic for two reasons:
It makes it nearly impossible to know if an arrest warrant is active or what the bail amount is set to.
It presents difficulty in making arrangements for a self-surrender and quick bailout.
Typically, sealed indictments are used as a tool to arrest a defendant quickly and without notice. Even in the event that a client is cooperating with an investigation, a sealed indictment may still be utilized to arrest a defendant.
Unfortunately, arrests are often publicized and leaks to the press are common. This adds further humiliation for clients since an arrest can happen at any time, and it may be caught on camera by local news organizations.
How do you know if there is a secret indictment against you? In short, you can't really know for sure, but there are a few things you can do now.
Grand juries that issue sealed indictments are the only ones that have knowledge of and are allowed to discuss them. Nevertheless, there are a number of resources that can be used to discover some information about criminal proceedings to determine if a sealed indictment is possible for a particular case.
Having exhausted all other options, the only reasonable course of action is to contact a criminal lawyer. Criminal lawyers will have access to more sensitive information not available to the general public, or at the very least will be able to learn more information than individuals. A lawyer will not only be able to answer the question of whether or not a secret indictment has been issued but can also advise the individual on how to proceed while they try to figure out the answer, as well as explain how long the police have to charge you.
So when exactly are secret indictments used? There are a number of situations in which individuals can use secret indictments. Typically, secret indictments are used when there is a fear that the person who the indictment is used for may flee the jurisdiction if he or she knows about the indictment, and that trial proceedings are in the procedure. In such situations, witnesses may also be protected.
Another reason for a secret indictment is so that the police can have additional time available to further investigate the particular case. If you suspect a secret indictment, our lawyers can help.
