#CriminalDefense - #FederalCrimes - Does The Grand Jury Make A Decision Before Someone Is Charged?

Generally, a decision is determined before someone is charged. Someone can be charged on a complaint, which is a sworn affidavit from a police officer or a federal agent as to the probable cause of how someone might have violated the law; then a magistrate judge or district court judge read that affidavit and approves it.
