True bill of indictment PRELIMINARY HEARING/GRAND JURY Created in England in the twelfth century, the grand jury’s original purpose was to act as a buffer between the king (and his prosecutors) and the common citizen. S. Constitution mandated that before a trial can take place, the government must first show probable cause to believe that the accused committed the crime for which he is being charged. In about half the states and in the federal system, this determination is made by a grand jury in a closed hearing.

The suspect believes that he is now in the custody of the police and has lost his liberty. The police officer is not required to use the word “arrest” or any similar term to initiate an arrest, nor does the officer have to handcuff or restrain the suspect or bring him to the police station. Under most circumstances, to make an arrest in a misdemeanor, the officer must have witnessed the crime personally, a principle known as the in-presence requirement. However, some jurisdictions have waived the in-presence requirement in specific classes of crimes, such as domestic violence offenses, enabling police officers to take formal action after the crime has been committed even if they were not present when it occurred.
