I was arrested, but bailed out. No charges were filed by my court date – now what?

Unfortunately, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re free. The District Attorney has, in most cases, up to three years from the date of the crime to file felony charges and up to a year to file misdemeanor charges. It just means that for some reason, your case was not filed by the date you were told to appear. Depending on your situation, you may still want to contact an attorney to discuss your situation. You must do certain things to continue your bail coverage until you get final word on whether or not charges are being filed, as well as things you should do to protect yourself and your rights.
