I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

The Intake Division of the State Attorney's Office evaluates the police reports and evidence when it first comes in and then determines how the case is going to be charged. Then it's sent to the correct trial division, in this case Felony Division 20, for the prosecutor to be assigned and the case to be able to go forward.

So this case has been evaluated and will be prosecuted as a felony.

iam sure this is a normal legal writting used in the court case history or w.e is called

The case has been filed with the court. The defense can ask for discovery and must notify the state if they intend to offer an alibi defense.

A felony sounding date is just the typical court appearance. Judges keep track of cases by calendaring them every 3-5 weeks to make sure they stay on top of what's happening between the defense and prosecution.

There is nothing at all unusual about anything you've mentioned. It's the typical shorthand applied to criminal cases.
