Also, two additional arraignments were held for defendants indicted by the January term of the grand jury, which met from Jan. 23-27. Jurors reviewed evidence in 105 criminal cases against 118 individuals. They returned indictments in 94 of the cases and no bills, meaning not enough evidence to go to trial, in eight cases. Three cases were continued to the next term.

Indictments are not made public until defendants have been arraigned — formally advised of the charges against them.

Arraigned this week and the charges against them were:

• Sheronda Dorsey, 30, 3001 Woodvine Road — embezzlement, April 13.

• Rossi Gray, 36, 262 Demby Drive — two counts sale of a controlled substance, Oct. 18 and 26.
