Twin Falls, ID asked in Car Accidents and Criminal Law for Idaho

Q: Cop handed over my case to a prosecutor but she left out compelling evidence. why?

a few weeks ago the cop told me that the kid denied hitting my car while it was parked and fleeing the scene but she handed over the case to the prosecutor but I just got off the phone with the prosecutor and he tells me that he can't press criminal charges because there was no evidence and that the cop also told him that she could not prove it either. But i mentioned all the screenshots to the prosecutor and he tells me that HE DID NOT KNOW THAT THERE WERE SCREEN SHOTS!... The cop never gave him the evidence. WHY would she do that?

A: Chances are she has a lot of other cases which are crimes as opposed to crashes. General attitude is "let the insurance companies fight it out."

So give the screen shots to the prosecutor.
