My question involves criminal law for the state of: CA
Can an incomplete police report lead to charges being dropped or dismissed?
On police report officer Z, make contact with victim and interviews victim & suspect at station. Officer Z indicates on police report to read, officer X report (page) concerning arrest & contact of suspect. Officer X report -page is not present in report. Can the case be dismissed or dropped for an incomplete report.
How much time does Officer X have to generate a report from the time of the incident?
Can the DA move forward with prosecuting a case with the suspect arrest/contact (page) not present if it is indicated on the report?
Can the DA have the officer add to the report once submitted to the DA?
