What does the disposition no billed mean?
1 Answer from Attorneys
No billed means that the Grand Jury has rejected the case and declined to indict a person for the crime for which they are accused. A true bill means that the grand jury has issued an indictment.
A grand jury convenes to determine if there is sufficient evidence for the prosecution to go forward. This is different from a petit or trial jury that decides whether someone is guilty or not guilty. In Texas, it is required that a grand jury issue an indictment before someone can be required to answer a felony charge. A grand jury can reconsider a case, typically when new evidence comes to light.
An experienced Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist will be able to guide a person through the grand jury process.
