    Answered . Simply call the State's Attorney's Office; advise the receptionist that you are calling regarding a misdemeanor matter (they may transfer you to the the County Court division); if requested provide your name; date of birth; and social security number; to the receptionist, but if she can not locate your case, simply say thank you and politely hang up, before you trigger the filing of an action that may simply go away on it own. Better yet, why are you not simply having your attorney call? Certainly do not answer any questions about the nature of the circumstances leading up to the alleged incident, or any factual background with which it is associated.

Defense attorneys call the SAO, give the case # to the secretary or receptionist, and then are told who is assigned to a particular case. Do not try to handle your issue yourself. Hire an attorney!!!!!

    Answered . You can probably look up your case online depending on what county and how that clerk of courts website works. Do a search by your name or whatever search field that site uses to pull up cases and the State Attorney should be listed or at least listed in the docket.
