Michigan Private Citizen files Felony Complaint – Part I “Request for Warrant”

The Untold Story of a Citizen’s Equal Protection and Due Process in Our American Society/Community/Neighborhoods: Part I “Request for Warrant” Attached Below!

“Both (Michigan) statute, MCL 764.1(1)–MCL 764.1(2), and court rule, MCR 6.101(C), include a procedure that permits a private citizen to file a felony or misdemeanor complaint when security for costs is filed with the magistrate. However, both the statute and the court rule are silent regarding the procedure a court should use when a citizen seeks to file security for costs.
In People v Joker, 63 Mich App 421, 429 (1975), the Court of Appeals held that even an indigent complainant must post more than a nominal sum as security. Therefore, the amount of security that a court requires should be reasonable and accurately reflect the likely expenses of the prosecution, rather than a minimal amount that merely placates the statutory requirements.” http://www.courts.mi.gov/education/mji/Publications/Documents/Mono-1-Complaints-Arrest-Warrants.pdf Michigan Judicial Institute © 2012
