Several people in town were arrested with a sealed indictment. The indictment had a bunch of names listed. Does that mean when the arrests were made that everybody on the list went to jail?
Not necessarily. The indictment may only have been unsealed with respect to the people already arrested. No way to know whether there are other people named but not yet arrested.
I agree with my colleagues.It means they were all charged. They may not havwe been arrest yet. They may not go to go at all.
