The police never gave the signed warrant to the clerk to file. Took 11 months to return the warrant and it's not the same cause number. Also no bodycams? Why

Second, it is not uncommon for search warrants to be obtained under a unique cause number and not in the same... Read more »

If you husband has an attorney (retained or appointed) these are issues that need to be discussed with that attorney.

He got sentenced to 5 years and he has all the proof including a polygraph test given to him by a private investigator and 11 witness... Read more »

However, if you... Read more »
