I was arrested in the state of Missouri for DWI on April 5, 2009. I was ordered to appear in court on April 7, 2009 to answer to the charge. I did show up for court on that date and at the proper time. However, my case was not filed. I was then released.
I was told that they up to one year to file my case and I would be notified by mail, Sheriff's office, or other serving agency about a new court date. I never heard anymore about it.
After one year has passed, I investigated the matter and found out they file my case on April 10, 2009 and they have had a warrant out for my arrest ever since.
Is there anything that can be done to expunge this whole mess, or can they still prosecute me?
