Best Answer

An indictment means that the grand jury has determined that there is enough data available to suggest that a criminal act has been committed and there is a good chance that the perpetrator will be found guilty. The information is presented to prosecuting authorities to follow through in arresting the person to be put on trial.

A supervening indictment refers to a formal charge of felony. It is an indictment by the Grand Jury that orders the defendant to report to court for the arraignment.
