How long does it take for a police department to file a complaint?
Hello, I'm an habitual offender in the state of New Hampshire. I've had 12+ Minor driving offenses and 3 major driving offenses (driving while my license was suspended). On the 24th of October I was on the side of the road to use the rest room while on my lunch break, it was night time because I work the night shift. As i was sitting in my car about to drive off an officer drives by, when he did I turned my car on to leave(Not because he drove by, just because I was already in the process of doing so) as I did this he turns around and pulls behind me and asks if everything is all right. He smells marijuana because I had a very small amount on me. So he arrests me because i'm an Habitual Offender and should not have been driving. One week later i was dumb and drove again so I could get to work, my town officer recognized me and pulls me over. So now I've been caught twice in a week for driving while on the Habitual Offender status (Felonies). 3 weeks ago i filled my papers for a defense attorney, still havn't heard back. Called the court today and they say the police department hasnt filled a complaint yet. My court date is in 1week.How long does this take for them to do? Thank you

He got my friend to give him a ash tray in the back that had a very little roach and a grinder with little res in it.
