okay thanks for your hepl
Expert:  Joseph replied 8 years ago.
I'm a criminal defense attorney in Floria and I believe I can help you out.

I hate to sound obvious, but it means:

- FILED - This means that the prosecutor, the Office of the State Attorney, has formally filed charges in the matter. Most Florida counties call the charging document an Information.

- NOT DISPOSED AT PROSECUTOR LEVEL - This is similar to the above, it simply means that the prosecutor did not dispose, or dismiss, the charges.

Please let me know if you require any further information.

i really don,t understand that but i will accept your answer thank you for helping me.
Expert:  Joseph replied 8 years ago.
If there is something you still don't understand, I'm happy to see if I can clarify for you.

Put as simply as I can, it just means that the prosecuting attorney's office has formally filed charges against your former boyfriend.

I hope this provides some help!
