Amount of Time they have to file formal charges
I was arrested for Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale on Jan 10, 2003. I was released on my Own Recognance. No formal charges were filed. Then on May 23, 2003, again I was arrested for Possession of Dangerous Drugs for Sale. My bond was set at $5,000. and bonded out within 48 hours. Again I have been informed that no formal charges have been filed. As I understand that my bond will automatically be dismissed. Just how long do they legally have to file formal charges against someone? The prosecutor says that I must continually inform there office of my location of residence, but fail to reveal just how long I am obligated to do this?
