    Answered . Your question is very confusing and hard to read but I'll take a guess at what you are asking. I'm going to guess that your son had a charge in General Sessions court. That case then was bound over to the grand jury and is awaiting indictment in Criminal Court. If that is the case, it can take several months to have a case indicted. In the meantime, the case would likely show as pending. If this is not what you are asking the perhaps you can repost it a little more clearly with more facts.
