I looked up the information again. The word SOID is listed under detainer charges..on the other cases under charges it has listings like probation violation etc. Does that mean that SOID still means Sheriff's Office ID#? I am assuming it does..could it mean anything else as it relates to chanrges? Thank you for your help.
