Customer Question

I had an arrest warrant signed by a head investigator on the same date as my alleged incident, but the affidavit complaint to support the probable cause for the arrest warrant was not signed until 4 months after the arrest warrant was signed. Is that legal? Is that proper procedure for arrest warrants? Can a case be thrown out due to this?

I have already had my first court apperiance and I also have an attorny that has been working for me in the state of Florida (where my charges are out of) for two and a half years and no results yet. The state of Florida allowed me to leave to reside in the state of WI pending two felonies.
