My question involves criminal law for the state of: Georgia
I was never arrested until I received a letter that stated what I was charged with an a court date..I appeared to the court date an the D.A. asked me if I was arrested for these charges yet I told her no..I went in front of the judge he asked me how I plead I said not guilty..the D.A. then approached the judge an told him I wasn't arrested for these charges yet so the judge shook his head at her an told me that I was being placed under arrest an they took me to jail..Is that normal..everyone was alittle confused by the way this happened..but they said by me going on my own without being arrested it looked good for me is that true????
