Candidate for Congress introduces state legislation designed to reform the legal and judicial process — Changes desperately needed — Part 15 – Right to file Criminal Charges


William M. Windsor, candidate for U.S. House of Representatives, has introduced state legislation designed to reform the legal and judicial process.  These are changes that Windsor says are desperately needed.

The legal systems and judicial systems in Georgia and every state in America must be reformed.  Dishonesty and corruption have stolen the rights of every American.

This is Part 15 of a series of articles that will address the proposed legislation for Georgia.  This proposed legislation adds a statute giving citizens the ability to file criminal charges in magistrate courts.

This change is an addition to Georgia Code Title 16, Chapter 1:



§ 16-1-126.  Filing of Criminal Charges

(a) Any citizen may file criminal charges against another by filing a sworn Criminal Warrant Application with the magistrate court where the offense(s) took place.

(b) It shall be the absolute right of any citizen to file a complaint.  No one may interfere in any manner with this right.

(c) Upon the filing of a complaint, the magistrate court shall serve the accused with a copy of the complaint, and the matter shall be set for an initial hearing to determine if probable cause exists.  The Complainant will act as “prosecutor” at the probably cause hearing.

(d) If probable cause is found, the District Attorney or Prosecuting Attorney’s Office will assign a prosecutor to work with the Complainant to seek a grand jury indictment.

(e) All probable cause hearings will be recorded by audio recording, and the proceedings will be transcribed by a court reporter.  A copy of the audio tape will be provided to any party at no charge upon request.

(f) The Complainant will be allowed to subpoena witnesses and documents using signed subpoena forms provided by the magistrate court.

Notes:  Law enforcement, district attorneys, and judges protect some who commit crimes, especially government officials and government employees.  Citizens must have a way of ensuring that criminal charges are not ignored.
