    "She is indicated on charges of failing to declare her assets during and after her te

    Hello teachers,

    I have just stated reading English newspapers because I want to improve my vocabulary. I am stuck with a certain phrase. I have written a part of the whole sentence where the phrase is included.

    "She is indicated on charges of failing to declare her assets during and after her tenure of office." I cannot understand the underlined part. I have checked the word "indicate" in my dictionary but it shows three meanings so it's quite complicated and I have no idea about "on charges of". Can you help me to clarify the meaning?

    Thanks.

    It's a typo.

    Try "indicted."

    Yes it was "indicted" not "indicated". But the second one was "on charges of falling" not "on charges for falling". What can it mean exactly? I have checked it in the dictionary but it says about charging batteries. So it might have another meaning.

    Did you look up "indicted"? It has to do with criminal charges.
