My question involves police conduct in the State of: California
Well I thought I had hit submit to my post but guess I didn't. My question in short is....the police didn't do any follow up investigation on an arrest. Basically the pub def called out the cop for not having done any followup. Even the judge agreed with that. The pub def was asking for a dismissal and even the judge said it was a very weak case for the prosc. The case is being transferred to a central court as the first court doesn't do felony cases. Could the judge in the first court have dismissed it or because it was being transferred to another court it wasn't in his jurisdiction to do so? Can a dismissal be done on an arraignment? He had an arraignment in the first court so unclear to me why it has to start all over again. Thank you in advance.
