1. This info is very helpful. Now I see the charge, when before it was to me only hearsay. Having trouble with the abbreviation which starts the charge of "INV FELONY STALKING". What is the 'INV'?
2. I concede this may be question 2. Had heard his 'charges' had been changed. Appears from docket info: Arrested late Mar '11. Next day, order for pretrial release, bail set at $100K. Week after arrest, affadavit/declaration of prob cause, then order determining prob cause. 2 days later state demands discovery. Initially arraigned 2 weeks after arrest and order sets trial
date about 7 weeks ahead (7+2=9 wks after arrest). At 5 weeks after arrest, arraigned on amended info, and there is order for Competency Evaluation. Affidavit/Declaration of Prob Cause is Amended resulting in Amended Order Determining Prob Cause. Next day there is a Status Conference/Hearing. Next, Order Staying Proceedings 15 days and authorizing transport to state hospital for Examination. That was about 6 weeks ago. He sits still in county jail.
So.... Does the Arraignment on Amended Information probably mean that the CHARGE was also changed (which is what I had heard--through the grapevine)? In which case I will have to ask the court what the new charge (if any) is (on Tuesday after the fourth holiday). (Having looked at Whatcom County jail and court info, does it seem to you that new CHARGE will not be obtainable on line (since not revealed in docket info published?)
And, going perhaps beyond the info I provide (which is the info I currently have available to me), doesn't the "Amended Info resulting in Amended Declaration of Prob Cause and Amended Order Determining Prob Cause" all seem just a little strange? Or is this maneuver common in court because new information often percolates up into the affairs of man?
