I have a question for any bees who may be firmiliar with the court system. I was visited by a police officer last night who presented me with my iPod. I was surprised, as I did not know if was missing. I thought that it was in the console of my car. He had apprehended a suspect a week ago and had found my name in the iPod. He found me in the RMV and came to my house to tell me what had happened. I had no idea that anyone had broken into my car or stolen the iPod, so I was initially confused. At first I thought that I may have left the car unlocked, but then I realized that the “jammed” lock that I discovered on my drivers side the previous Monday morning was most likely a “broken” lock and that someone must have broken into my car by jimmying the drivers side lock, which would explain why it was jammed.
So the issue is, the police officer is going to move forward to pressing charges againced the suspect, as the suspect has been on the police radar for some time but has never had any real evidence. Because of this, I will most likely need to appear in court. My car may potentially become evidence. What can I expect from this? What happens with witnesses/”victims” in this type of situation? Any advice/wisdom would be appreciated.
