    Default How To Write And File A Motion To Dismiss

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Connecticut

    I was arrested and the cop filled out a "Misdemeanor Summons and Complaint" ticket with an incorrect statute number. I was arrested for a crime that is not on the books.

    How do I word this in a pretrial motion to dismiss?

    Or:

    Somewhere down the line, the statute number was corrected by someone at court. This sounds like some sort of tampering to me. They arraigned me for the corrected statute. Can I object to the fact that I was not arrested for that and they have no subject matter jurisdiction since the cop wrote me up for a crime that doesn't exist?

    Where can I find a "Motion to Dismiss" template?

    Can I file motions in the court any time I want or do I have to wait for my next court date?

    I ask four questions in my post, and your reply was absolutely useless. Thanks for nothing.

    Your asking the foolish. You want to practice law then go to law school. Your inviting trouble trying to do this yourself

    I agree. The complaint can be amended and since you were correctly arraigned that is not an issue. You can file a motion anytime but it will probably be heard at your next court date. Unless you have a defense to the charge talk to the prosecutor and see if you can cut a deal. Usually won't happen unless you have an attorney.
