- Serious criminal charges are called indictable offences. Offences include: murder. If you have been charged with an indictable offence it will say this on the charge sheet in the ‘Details of the charge’ section. As indictable offences are serious, you may have to go before a judge and a jury in higher courts like the County Court and Supreme Court.
