If you are indicted what that means is you have now been formally charged with an offense and will have to start making appearances in court. Your first appearance could be an arraignment or an announcement where the charges are read to you and you have to enter in an initial plea either guilty or not guilty. In most occasions, you’ll enter a not guilty plea.

Also at that time, the court will inquire whether or not you’ve obtained a lawyer and if you haven’t when you plan to do so. And if you can’t afford an attorney the court has the ability to appoint one. So if an indictments been returned against you then you must appear in court and answer to those charges.
