Indicted means that the grand jury found that there was probable cause to believe that a crime was committed and a chance that your son was the one who did it. That there was enough evidence to hold him for further proceedings.
grand jury proceedings are not like a trial. The prosecutor is basically just presenting his side of the case. If the lawyer really can't be bothered even what "indicted" means, i would try to get a different lawyer, cause that's just mean. I don't know about AZ but in NY there is a basic defendant's handbook on the web that explains a lot and defines the terms they use; maybe somebody from AZ knows if there is such a thing out there?
good luck and hang in there! Somebody once said that a grand jury could be convinced to indict a ham sandwich if asked.
