A: Generally speaking, a judge determines probable cause at a hearing and verbally announces their finding. Many times, certain things are erroneously left blank on certain forms and documents. The short answer is that, generally speaking, failing to write something on a certain box on a form or order is not a "get out of jail free card." On a highly technical issue like this, it is best for the defendant to point it out to their attorney and get their opinion on the exact issue.
