It's been over 3 weeks for an incident at local store ... clerk claims I didn't pay for a $10 item, and I said I did. Have an account at the store. That afternoon, a policeman came to my home to take a report; and, evidently, they contacted my neighbor that evening as well - but my neighbor did talk with me later as we're on very good terms. I've got an attorney waiting in the wings to assist if needed but I'm wondering if anyone has experience with how long it takes the DA to file charges after receiving the police report? It's a long shot, but maybe after looking at the video, etc. the DA will decide not to file for lack of evidence but I imagine that's doubtful. Also wondering, as a courtesy, if the DA will inform me with any decision either way on this?
