A: What kind of document are you looking at? A police report? A complaint? Something else? More would need to be known in order to intelligently answer your question. Reach out to attorneys directly. Most of us provide free consultations.

A: Multiple possibilities exist, depending upon what document and where you are looking. Friend could show the paper to a criminal defense attorney, who would then be able to see what is being referenced. Or at least a phone call.
