A: Not sure what your question is - however, the officer presents the charges based on the information they have. In other words if the computers are down, or that particular department is not using computers, then he may not see the prior offenses and therefore presents the charges to the DA or city attorney whichever the case may be, then when the DA or city attorney reviews the evidence they can charge you accordingly. Common misconception is “the officer charged me……” when in actuality the officer only presents the charges to the authority that does the actual charging.
