Overview

A criminal indictment is a written statement charging an individual with committing a crime or other offense, drawn up by a prosecuting attorney and found and presented by a grand jury. It is a formal accusation initiating a criminal case and usually required for felonies and other serious crimes. This book contains a transcription of the 1801-1843 criminal indictment book located in the archives section of the courthouse in Leesburg, Virginia. Entries have been abstracted in full, and typically provide the date of the proceeding; details of the offense; name of the accused (and slave owner, if the accused is a slave), the victim, justices, attorney, witnesses, and security; and the court's ruling on the case. A full-name index adds to the value of this excellent resource.
