Time limit for police to file charges
My fiance was attacked by our neighbor
with a concealed knife. My fiance called
the police and they arrested them both
stating they are taking them both in as
suspects and victims: assualt with a
deadly weapon. I bailed my fiance out
and we went to the courthouse the
bondsman told us to--the court clerk
had not heard of the case. They called
the DA- who had not heard of the case.
The clerk told us that the police are
most likely figuring out whether or not
they want to charge him with anything.
How long after the incident do the
police have to press charges?
