Hi,

I'm Zoey.

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.

Did the police see the injuries? How did they leave this when they came to see you? Did they tell you they would be turning the matter over to a prosecutor? Do you have any prior criminal convictions?

I was hoping to hear from you before I replied, but I can give you some reasons why you weren't arrested:

You don't need to be taken into physical custody to be charged with a crime. You can get a summons in the mail or be handed a citation. The police know where you live and know how to find you. So if you don't have any criminal history to speak of, the only reason to take you i would be to make sure that the alleged victim was safe. If he wasn't there, or if he was but his injuries were minor or non-existent, then they had no reason to worry about his safety.

The police may have to charge you, and if so they will once the prosecutor reviews the police report, but there's no requirement they take you into custody.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
