Legal Question

Asked on: 8/19/10, 2:08 pm

I searched online public general district court case information and found that my stepdaughter was found guilty but don't understand the jargon on the case details page. Under charge it says CA/FTA/NAME ATT/DIST/PWI MARIJ and then under case type is states "capias". Under final dispostion it states "guilty". What was the actual charge, what is a capias and is it a felony if she was found guilty? I looked up the definition of capias but still didn't understand.
