40 people were charged in Butler and Warren counties

August 25 — Grand courts, which meet in secret, hear criminal charges brought by police and prosecutors and investigate possible criminal conduct. The process is usually one-sided because the accused is not present and no witnesses are examined.

A grand jury can issue an indictment if it finds probable cause that a crime has been committed and the defendant is responsible. An indictment is an accusation that must then be proven in court. The grand jury may also choose not to issue an indictment. — BUTLER LAW
