My question involves criminal law for the state of: Alaska
If someone is informed that their case had to be set aside for a small amount of time due to an annual local procedure of the police office, and that the case should be headed to the DA within 2 weeks, and 5 days later they buy a plane ticket and leave the state, what happens?
To my understanding they are looking at a Class B Felony when it gets to the DA, as the DA and the police have already been in contact. The case has simply not made it to the DA because of the annual local procedure where during the state fair all local detectives in that city are required to put their cases on a stand still and not work them until the end of the fair. When the detective informed the person that it would reach the DA soon, they inquired about what the charges might be, and were informed of the severity of the charge.
How might that affect the case? What procedures might have to happen now? What happens if the person runs again?
