I had this feeling this morning that I only get when something is not right. I knew that my ex might try something so I called the police to see if I they might be "looking for me". I was not too surprised when They said they were. I tried to contact the officer who took the report but of course he was off until Wed. I gave my friend some cash to bail me out if needed then drove right to the police station to turn myself in. I have always done tis they can never say they have ever had to come looking for me. they told me on the phone that the warrant was a few days old and when I asked why they did not even try to get my side of the story or simply inform me about it. How am I supposed to know about such things if they do not tell me. I guess I have to call the station every day to check.
The warrant was for harassment. I had $100 unsecured bond. That was ok with me because I just signed my for my self and after about 2 1/2 hours I was on my way home. The officers were cool about things too. The video judge was the nicest one I had so far. I was really expecting thing to be far worse than they were. I now have yet another "thing" to tend to in court. This case will not be in family court though. I alway thought that I had some right to have or at least see the police report but when I asked for it they said an attorney could get for me. I said that I plant to be my own atty. and again asked for it, they would only refer me to the records department. I ask for the phone number and did get that from them.
While I was being fingerprinted and all, they brought in two young kids for fighting (11-13) They had to fill out the paperwork themselves and made the cops laugh when one of the kids asked about what to put for drivers license number. I think they were trying to scare them more than actually hassle them.
There was another guy there who asked me a question that I had asked many people before myself, "what do the cops mean by Delaware is a womans state". I heard this so many times from the police and could never get them to go into what this was supposed to mean. It made me furious every time because in my opinion this is a offensive sexist thing for any one to say least of all a cop. If any one know more about this please leave a comment. That might be why they did not let me know about my warrant. If I did not find out on my own they would have pulled me over in my car and towed it away. I would have to pay about $200 to get it back minimum. I would have hoped they would make it as easy as possible for some one to turn them self in. It would have made me look ten times worse if they got me.
I am going to try to get the police report or find the law that says I am not allowed to have it. How can I start to defend myself if I do not know what was said about me?
I have to file some kind of papers to continue my visit now because I have a no contact order in place and I am not allowed to be around or talk to her. I do have a court order to call her on thurs. about that sats visit and to pick him up but now I do not know if the visit order is valid right now. This might be my x’s intentions. I can’t say for sure, but it would not surprise me. I will never know…tom g
