Answer: You can call law enforcement directly to follow up. There may have been developments that you are unaware of, as once a case is moving forward, unless you specifically request to be kept updated with developments, you may not be contacted much, unless it’s for the purpose of preparing a supplemental report, you are needed in court to testify or you are being asked in you’re in agreement with a disposition.
Question: ”I was a victim of a case of battery. I was punched in the face, and as a result I was diagnosed with a broken cheekbone, a broken nose, and my prescription glasses were ruined. A sheriff’s deputy took my statement and gave me a case number. The man has not been arrested. What happens next? How soon until I know if the DA will prosecute?”
