What Does Charged and/or Indicted Mean?
Information for most crime reports are provided by the St. Charles County and St. Louis County law enforcement agencies.
Charges and/or indictments are not evidence of guilt. They are a record of police actions taken on a given day, and persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.
If you or a family member are charged or cited and the case is subsequently adjudicated, we encourage you to contact Associate Regional Editor Brian Feldt at email@example.com and we will verify and report the outcome.
