My question involves criminal law for the state of: kansas
Recently moved to Kansas. New roommate was on probation for some sort of theft in the past. He then stole 1255$ worth of stuff from me as well as took 56 Lortabs of mine. I got him to admit it all on a phone recording. I contacted the police and gave them the info + recordings. A week later a detective called me and said he took it to the prosecutor who turned down a felony and is making it a misdemeanor. This is weird to me since the total was over 1000$. Secondly, I have emailed the detective 3 times and left 2 voice mails on his office about the situation between the dates of February 4th til the last voice mail I left was March 10th. He has not responded to me at all about the case. I have no idea if the guy is in custody. I am clueless on everything. Can someone help answer the following two questions:
1) why isn't it a felony?
2) why isn't the detective responding ? what should I do/ what is my next step?
