When certain personal, confidential information needs to be filed but should not and cannot be accessed by the public (oftentimes one's social security number) a Notice of Confidential Information needs to be filed, alerting the parties that something of this nature has been filed.
There is a good chance the prosecutor will file charges. The answer about how long you have typically depends on how many non-jailed individuals with pending charges they have before you to review. If you want to see if a warrant is active for your yourself you can check the IN MyCase site but it is better in my opinion to already have a lawyer so that they can contact the prosecutor's office about the situation before charges are filed by the prosecutor's office.
The police make an initial charging decision, and then they turn the case into the Prosecutor's office who looks it over and decides if the charge was correct, and if additional charges could or should be brought. Mr. Graham is correct in that you will likely be eligible for the diversion program which is designed to keep minor offenses off of one's record for first offenders.
Some benefits of hiring a lawyer are 1) they can likely keep you out of court altogether, 2) you have someone trained in the law to look over the police report and make sure the encounter with the police was a legal one, and 3) to as a liaison between yourself and the prosecutor's office.
I would call an attorney to discuss, so as not to discuss the details of your situation on a public forum. Any lawyer who practices criminal defense will be able to guide you in the right direction after hearing about what occurred.
Which County did this occur in? If it's in Kokomo, I would recommend finding a local lawyer.
Feel free to give me a buzz. 812-961-8333.
The above answer is spot on! It has nothing to do with anyone snitching on others, just a way to protect personal information from the public.
The pre-trial supervision program is fairly new - I'm not sure what UDS stands for. You could call the probation dept. and ask them. Their number is 812-349-2645.
Theoretically they could file a petition to revoke your probation and request an arrest warrant. My advice would be to get a hold of your probation officer immediately to explain situation and try to re-schedule.
Sounds very odd. Typically they'll ask one to give a breath test, not a urine test. If someone won't submit to a breath test, they'll ask for consent for a blood draw. If consent is not given, they can seek a warrant for the blood draw. The whole catheter thing is something I've never heard of. Which county did this occur in?
