Got a letter which is apparently from Magistrate court and says I have been accused of Assault on such and such date and my local constabulary has attempted to contact me to review the case but after several attempts they couldn't get hold of me. Then it says i am summoned to Magistrate court to review the case before further proceedings can be started and gives a date and time to visit the magistrate court. Is it possible then someone gets a magistrate court Summon without getting contacted by Police and does such summons come in normal second class mail not special delivery etc?
Thanks a lot, feeling much relieved, Can you please also help me to understand how court summons gets delivered and by "Charged" do you mean person has been interviewed by police and police has charged the person if they have enough evidence against him/her? Is there any chance Magistrate directly Summons with Police charged the person? I know you have briefly explained it but would be helpful if you shed some more light on it.
Is there any further action required on my end or i should just forget it and move on. This gave me extreme depression and caused me stress.
