    ANY question on law needs to include your general locale as laws vary by area. But in most places they have to arrest and arraign him within days not months. An indictment is a different process and may not even occur.

    Has bail been set? Does he have an attorney?

    If he has been in jail for two months he has already been formally charged. The term indict as for as a grand jury does not have to be done in all areas.
