Grand Jury & No Bills

If you are a defendant and you are charged with a felony you should almost never plead guilty before your case is indicted.  In Texas every felony case is passed in front of a grand jury who decides whether or not to indict the case.   If you have a Houston Criminal Defense Attorney they will probably talk to you about the indictment and explain the process to you.  Most of the time cases seem “hopeless” and it is a foregone conclusion that the case will be indicted, but every once in a while a case who everyone (including defense attorneys and prosecutors) think will be indicted gets no billed (or dismissed).
