Dear Customer,

Thank You for posting your criminal law question this evening. I'm attorney Bill assisting you with your request. Your sole obligation in relation to the criminal investigation is to file a local police complaint and/or contact your local District Attorney's Office. The prosecutor will review the evidence and issue subpoenas to determine whether there is a threshold of evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that there was a criminal violation.

In certain cases it will go to the grand jury to decide whether to indict

Proof can be real or circumstantial evidence.

We are here to help so please follow up with me as required.

In return remember to rate my answer and response positively

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated.

Thanks

Attorney Bill
