Asked 11 months ago - Hillsborough, NJ

    Answered . No, it isn't a conflict of interest for the same prosecutor to handle the complaint. However, you should retain an attorney to help you.

Reword this so that we can more fully understand what you are saying and asking. Try not to interject your conclusory and emotional words which tend to muddy the question. Who is the complainant? If you just want to rant, you can do that, but the chances of us understanding the question are much less.
