A: Impossible to know the answer to that without looking into the specifics. However, if you’ve been indicted on felony charges, you should hire a lawyer ASAP.

A: The prosecutor has discretion on who to charge and who not to charge. Also, sometimes they indict people at different times even though it is the same case. If you had a more significant role in the crime, or if you had a worse criminal record than the others, that might cause you to get indicted first.
