I was hiking on National Forest Land in utah and saw a hiker from a distance. It turns out it was a Wildlife officer who was trying to question me about looking for shed antlers. I did not hear him identify himself as law enforcement and returned to my vehicle and drove away. I was soon stopped by another officer who grilled me about what I was doing and why I didnt stop at the first officers command. Soon the original officer showed up and took my name and said he was going to submit the case to the county prosecutors. I really dont know what evidence they have that could be detrimental to me but hate waiting in suspense for something to happen. How long do you think it takes on average for a case like this to make it to the prosecutors desk?
All depends on the statute of limitations and the work case load of the prosecutor. Your Criminal Defense Attorney can probably give you a more accurate answer.
