How does a criminal charge get filed?

The police department will bring the reports of arrested suspects to the State’s Attorney’s Office to file a complaint. After reviewing the report, if the State’s Attorney’s Office feels there is enough evidence to prosecute the case, a complaint will be signed.

If the State’s Attorney’s Office feels there is insufficient evidence in the case, a complaint will not be issued.
