If you have been charged in federal court, you have counsel, either appointed or retained. Your question should be directed to your attorney. There may be a reason why no indictment has been returned, but your lawyer is in a position to explain why that has not happened, or to move for the complaint to be dismissed. Keep in mind that your case can still be indicted even if the complaint is dismissed. Good luck.
The response I have provided is general in nature, and does not create an attorney-client relationship. My practice is based in Rhode Island, and the law and practice in other states or jurisdictions may be different.
I agree that you should ask your attorney, but even that person may not be able to give you a specific answer or even a satisfactory timeframe. With that, "sooner rather than later," with consideration given to the complexity of the matter, is always a possible answer, if your attorney wishes to give one. One good one here would be "I cannot tell you. I only ask that you exercise patience with the process, prayer if you are so inclined, and an effort to go about your daily life without worry, for worrying does nothing except affect your health and well-being. I am here for you if you need any help; if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me."
