The Shenandoah County grand jury handed up several indictments earlier this month, leaving many people waiting to see how their cases will play out in court.

All civil cases and several criminal cases for people who are not already incarcerated have been put on hold until April due to concerns about COVID-19 spreading in communities. Courthouses are open and attorneys are still meeting with clients, both incarcerated and otherwise, but all matters that are not considered an emergency are pending.

The grand jury indicted the following people:
