Of course, a charge does not indicate guilt. Rather, an charge indicates that probable cause exists-- that is, a set of facts, circumstances, and reliable information would lead a reasonable, prudent, and cautious person to believe that a crime has been committed and that a specific person committed the crime. Persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
