The leader of an assisted suicide group charged with helping a 58-year-old Georgia man with cancer kill himself says he's looking forward to a trial that he hopes will validate the group's work.

Jerry Dincin says that the Final Exit Network is "glad it's moving along" and that they have been preparing for the trial for more than a year.

He became the group's leader after then-president Ted Goodwin and three other members were arrested in Georgia in February 2009. The four members and the group itself were indicted Tuesday by a Forsyth County grand jury.

Dincin says the group has not been involved in any suicides since it was charged but that it plans to put up billboards this year in California and New Jersey.

They will read: "Good Life. Good Death. Your Choice."
