Dear Customer ,
Thank you for posting your criminal law question and we are sorry to hear how things have followed unfortunately as of late of you in relation to the warrant , arrest and misdemeanor charge.
Do you have a copy of the citation and summons for review ?
What specific offense are you being charged with ?
You may have a defense to the charge and the mandatory reporting failure so please follow up with me with the specific charge.
It is most likely this charge here:
32A-4-3. Duty to report child abuse and child neglect; responsibility to investigate child abuse or neglect; penalty.
A. Every person, including a licensed physician; a resident or an intern examining, attending or treating a child; a law enforcement officer; a judge presiding during a proceeding; a registered nurse; a visiting nurse; a schoolteacher; a school official; a social worker acting in an official capacity; or a member of the clergy who has information that is not privileged as a matter of law, who knows or has a reasonable suspicion that a child is an abused or a neglected child shall report the matter immediately to:
(1) a local law enforcement agency;
(2) the department; or
(3) a tribal law enforcement or social services agency for any Indian child residing in Indian country.
You may deny that you had proper cause to report to law enforcement.
Looking forward to your follow up.
