Q: Do Probable cause affidavit have to be filed with the Clerk of court.

I was arrested and jailed The next day I received a visit from the P.D. office and was given the P.C. Affidavit. Three months later while still jailed I received in the mail that I was given a new P.D. I REQUIRED the newly appointed P.D. To send me a copy of the states discovery. After reception of discovery I placed the first given p.c. affidavit along side of the recently sent p.c. affidavit every thing was the same except the arresting officers signature and the signature witness was change. Also unlike the first p.c. affidavit the Clerk of courts time stamp was removed. I fired the P.D. was given their discovery.
