My girlfriend is was sentenced with charges in two county's running concurrently
It sounds like you/your girlfriend may have two things going on:
(1) If your girlfriend was sentenced concurrently for two cases, that means the sentences will coincide/the sentences won't be served back-to-back. For example, if she was sentenced to serve one year in prison on one case and also sentenced to a year in a separate/second case, assuming the sentences were to be served CONCURRENTLY (and not consecutively), she would only serve one year total.
(2) In terms of the "peace officer no complaint" notation on the inmate release paperwork, this sounds like she may have been arrested/booked on charges, but no charges have been filed. But, don't pop the champagne bottles just yet. Just because charges haven't been filed, this doesn't mean they never will be filed. The District Attorney has a certain period of time after the initial arrest/citation to file charges (this is called the "statute of limitations" period). You/your girlfriend should consult with a qualified criminal defense attorney to discuss the case and ways that an attorney may be able to intervene and prevent charges from being filed.
