Response: I can give you some
general information, but I can't give you a specific answer (a) because you're coming close to asking for legal
advice, and I don't give legal advice, and (b) because so much depends on the

Before I say anything else, I must tell you this: Get an attorney!
Tell your attorney what has happened and she/he can (try to) find out if you
have been indicted and, if you have, proceed from there. If you cannot afford an
attorney, you can ask the court to appoint one for you. You might have qualified
for an appointed attorney during the investigation, depending on your
involvement with the grand jury proceeding. You can contact the clerk of the local
federal district court to find out more about that.
Now, as to the general information I promised: You say the case
"went to" a grand jury two weeks ago--does that mean they began an investigation
two weeks ago? Or does it mean that they were asked to vote on an
indictment two weeks ago?
If it's the former, it could be quite a while before they reach the
indictment state, depending on how complicated the case is and on how much evidence thegovernment already has.
If it's the latter, it could mean they have already voted and an
indictment has been returned, it could mean they have already voted and an indictment
has not been returned, or it could conceivably mean they have not yet voted
(maybe they wanted more evidence?).
Even if they have already voted to return an indictment, you may
not know about it for a while. Aside from anything else, it is possible for an
indictment to be sealed (i.e., not made public) for a period of time, if

advice based onyour specific situation, so, please, get a lawyer.
