I was told a friend is trying to file charges on me for a crime in North Carolina and she is in Missouri can she file charges there?
If it's a state crime, the state court must have jurisdiction over you, meaning the crime must have occurred in the state and county where the prosecution is taking place. However, if your "friend" contacts Missouri law enforcement, all Missouri law enforcement has to do is contact NC law enforcement. Prosecutors routinely fly out witnesses from other states to convict people, so you should probably contact an attorney in NC sooner than later.
