My brother-in-law was arrested in May, 2012, for sex/indecent exposure. Allegedly, he committed several acts of public masturbation, and from what I have been told (from people who have access to records), there are several witnesses willing to testify against him. He spent the night in jail and was released on $15k bond. While he was in jail, the judge issued a search warrant, and cops seized the front seat of his truck and some other items from his house. Around this time, my sister found out she was pregnant, and she is due in December.
A true-bill indictment was issued on June 28, 2012.
A preliminary hearing was scheduled for July 6, 2012, but was cancelled. Its disposition says “Preliminary Hearing Indicted”.
What does all of this mean? Is he being charged with felony or misdemean
