My question involves criminal law for the state of: IL
I do not live in Il, but 13 year old criminal misdemeanor case is from Il. I received a letter today from State's Attorney Office stating " You have been charged with a crime by complaint, information or indictment in the above referenced case and a criminal case is now pending against you." "Please take immediate action to resolve this matter". The case was originally a felony and reduced to misdemeanor. Case is inactive on clerk of court website.
What does this mean? Has someone complained or why would states attorney open this case after 13 years?
