I was advised by an officer a month ago that I would be receiving a citation in the mail. Five days from today will mark one month since the date of filing and I have yet to receive the citation. Is there a deadline for when a citation and/or summons must be sent? What if I never receive them? What if a hearing is scheduled without me ever being informed of the same? I've done a docket search online which showed that there is a judge assigned and they are awaiting my plea, yet I wouldn’t know this unless I did the search online. How can I defend myself when I'm being kept out of the loop in terms of the basis for the officer's charges in addition to the court proceedings? I intend to fight this wholeheartedly as the citation is unjust yet I need the paperwork to do so.
