My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
I was notified today that I have to go to court in less than a week for assault charges on my mom and dad which are senior citizens. I live with them but was never notified. And nobody handed any paperwork to me. Detectives came to my apartment and told me they filed the paperwork the other day and were pressing on me going to court or a warrent will be issued and go to jail. I even looked up any court dates that I had for and theres nothing on that says I have to be there. What does this tell you? Because I think and feel that this is bullshit and a trap (which is irrelevant) . The judge and I have history and the police are close with my dad.
