  2. No, you should not assume that just because you cannot find your particular case on the court's website, that it has been dropped. And I would venture a guess that is has not. It is more likely just a delay in entering data, which means absolutely nothing.

    You have a lot of questions that need to be addressed to your public defender.


  3. It may take until monday to hit the computers.
    Call your attorney.

  4. There are many errors on the court websites. It's highly doubtful that the charges would be dropped without you or your attorney knowing about it. You need to discuss your case with your attorney and possibly consult with a civil rights attorney as well.
