Topic: Case status court meaning
May 22, 2019 / By Ilean Question:
so to give you guys details, i put my grandfather in jail, for something, but he made bail [this was last year]  i dont know how long ago this letter came, because i found it in my moms pile of stuff already opened. and she never told me about it. so heres the part i dont understand.... it says.....
the ocean county grand jury has considered the evidence in the above matter and returned an indictment for the above charges. this case will now be placed on a court schedule. in the event that the defendent enters a plea of guilty which is acceptable to the court and to the prosecutor, the need for a trial would be eliminated. we will keep you informed as to the status of this case is it proceeds through the system.
what does that mean? please tell me!!

It means that unless your grandfather pleads guilty to the crime that he is accused of, he is going to go to trial (and probably prison).
I suggest that he gets a good defense attorney, especially if he was indicted by a grand jury.

Originally Answered: Can I mail a letter with a prepaid envelope, paid by another company?
No you cannot. It's fraud to do that. Usually there is a bar code to identify the sender.
The only way you can use it is to block out the barcode and put a stamp on it.
Legally you cannot even re-use an uncancelled stamp, let alone a pre-paid envelope that wasn't bought by you. EDIT:
You are still guilty of fraud if you use it. You haven't paid postage and when it's delivered to wherever, they will have to pay it. Sorry that's not the answer you wanted.
The grand jury heard the case from the prosecutor and decided it was a strong enough case to go forward to trial and try to get him convicted of whatever crime they were looking at.
So he had formal charges put against him, and it went on the judge's schedule to go to trial. If he entered a plea of guilty, the trial would be canceled and they would let you know.
If that doesn't make sense, do a question to me and I'll break it down a little further for you, no problem.. :)

The grand jury found enough evidence to put him on trial. Now he can
1) plead guilty and avoid a trial
2) plead not guilty ,get an attorney, go to trial
Why would your mother ignore a government document?

It means your grandfather's case was brought before the Grand Jury, who found that the evidence was strong enough to take him to court. If your grandfather pleads guilty, there is no need for a trial. If he pleads innocent, he will go to trial at a future date.

It says your grandfather was charged wit ha crime, and he will have a trial. As a witness, you will be kept informed as to when the date of the trial is.
Since you don't check your mail often, why not call the number on the letter today and see what the current status is. Then check your mail more often if you didn't already miss the trial.

You pressed charges.
The Grand Jury decided that the case had merit.
Your Grandfather is now facing trial...unless he admits his guilt, in which case a sentence will be imposed without a trial.
It also means that you need to advise the County Clerk to forward all future mailings for you to your new address.
It also means that your Mother has committed a Felony in intercepting your mail, and opening it (unless you're both named the same).
You'll need to talk to your Mother about WHY she did so.
Finally, you will have to file a Change of Address Notification with the Post Office, and keep it up for a couple of months.
I am, of course assuming that you are NOT living with your Mother. If you are living with your Mother, and are old enough, rent a PO box and file the Change Of Address as above.
A Change Of Address tells the Post Office to re-route your mail to "the below noted address." It is automatic, and runs for a couple of months.

Mom isn't helping, you need to contact a defense attorney before you go to the DA. A trial is imminent if grandpa does not plead guilty.

Sounds like your grandfather is going to go to trial unless he pleads guilty. They will let you know what happens. If he goes to trial, you will probably be called to testify.

It sounds like they are asking him to plead guilty to avoid a trial. Call the DA and find out what's going on.

Originally Answered: Does anyone know what the last name "davenport" means?
Usually, when we find a meaning or an origin of a name for one of you guys we put a disclaimer at the end that says something like, "You really need to do the research on your ancestors to know the true origins of your "XXXXXXX" surname.
I did a search on FamilySearch.org and got 367 hits. The Ancestral file contained 200 names, most of who were born in the US but their parents and great grandparents were born elsewhere [mostly England]. http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/default.... ; and on Ancestry.com I got 19,365 hits in a search for Passenger Lists, again mostly from England. http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.d...
Therefore, you could probably say that your ancestor are from England for the purpose of this project you have at least a better than 50 percent of being right. It would be better to do the research for your project, however, in the time you have, researching your family tree will probably not be possible. So, while I am not encouraging you to be creative with your project it may be necessary. But try the following plan and see if that will work for you.
First, start by asking all your living relatives about family history and get any documents or pictures they are willing to share with you for your files. You can photocopy or scan these and return them to their owner. Your public libraries will most likely have both Ancestry.com and Heritage Quest.com free for anyone to use while at the library and with a library card you should be able to use Heritage Quest at home.
Another free online resource is USGenWeb at http://www.usgenweb.org/ this sprawling all-volunteer site is packed with how-to tips, queries and records for every state and most counties within those states. Special projects usgenweb.org/projects cover subjects such as censuses, tombstones and family group sheets. Do not miss the easy-to-overlook search of the entire site http://searches.rootsweb.ancestry.com/htdig/search.html/.
Then, there is Rootsweb at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ a free site hosted by Ancestry.com where you can search for surnames and leave queries on the message boards.
Additionally, there is the LDS/Mormon site, which has many free online records at http://www.familysearch.org/ . In addition to their online records, they have the Family History Centers where you can go to get help with research and look at microfilm and microfiche and they only charge if they have to order something for you or you need photocopies. Finally, if you need software to organize your genealogy data you can download their Personal Ancestral File [PAF] free at http://www.familysearch.org/ .
Also, be sure to check each state that you need information from as many have their own projects, for example, the state of Missouri has a great website that has many free source documents online at http://www.sos.mo.gov/mdh/ and South Carolina has many free wills and other court documents at http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/search.aspx
And, do not forget to check Cyndi’s List at http://www.cyndislist.com/ and ProGenealogist top 100 genealogist websites at http://www.familytreemagazine.com/article/101best2009?r=adcFTMText
both of these sites have many links for both free and fee based sites but I believe most of the fee based ones are marked with a $.
I am certain I could list many more websites but this list is rather comprehensive while being easy on the wallet, which is something everyone can appreciate these days.
You can always come back here if you get stuck and ask questions.
