How can I get a copy of an indictment?

Can I get a copy of an indictment that was already handed down. A friend was
arrested on Federal charges and I would like to read the indictment, And see the charges. Is this possible? Where can I find this information? Thanks.


Indictments that have been returned are on file in the court clerk's office . . . unless they have been sealed for some reason (fear that someone who was indicted will flee, for example). If you go to the court clerk's office, you should be allowed to see and get a copy of an indictment.
