Well, I do know that she filed a report with the police this evening, however, she did not press charges. So that's what I don't understand. If she goes and files charges tomorrow, what are the consequences? Basically, would they contact me asap, or should I call them and just go on up to the station?
Also, does she only have 24 hours to file these charges or can she do it 2 weeks from now?
OK, thank you very much. One last thing, do you have any idea how long it normally takes the police/prosecutor to decide to press charges against me? Basically, do you think it would be as soon as tomorrow that I would hear from them or could it be up to 6 months before I heard anything from them?
