Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. My name is***** am a US licensed attorney and I will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice / legal service you should contact your local attorney.
Did you file complaint / report with the police?
Thank you for your follow up.
Did you follow up with the police to determine the status of their investigation?
Unfortunately, generally police does conduct criminal investigations and sometimes such investigations can take some time and if police is not providing the crime victim with an update of the case, then it would be a good idea to contact police chief and address the situation with the chief of police.
Also, district attorney does have prosecutorial discretion when it comes to filing of criminal charges and in some cases the district attorney will not file criminal charges or issue an arrest warrant, until all the evidence related tot the alleged crime are properly reviewed and a decision is made to pursue criminal charges against the alleged criminal.
I wish you the best of luck!
As I have previously clearly stated, I cannot comment on your specific case or tell you what to do, but this website scope is limited to general legal answers.
Generally, police or District Attorney cannot be forced to make an arrest or pursue criminal charges and generally, the only option is to contact Chief of Police and also District Attorney and if that fails, then Office of Kansas Attorney General can be contacted (Attorney General Office has oversight over District Attorney's Office).
