quiny I've been to that. I know what you are bringing out. Look at 2.2 CRIMINAL CASE NUMBERING -ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS. 2.1 covers the Actual Main Case File itself. Such as the Main Case file may have the 10 - F - 25 - (with Court such is assigned). The Criminal Complaints and Warrants of Arrest have their own numbers. Would be like a sub folder to the Actual Case File 10 - F -25 Where the Criminal Complaints and Warrants of Arrest with numbers 10F- 325, and 10F-326 would go into such. Look at paragraph 4 of 2.2 it says, "Upon indictment or the filing of an information, an "F" or "M" case number replaces the "B" number, and a separate number should be assigned for every indictment or information filed against an individual." The information would be that an action of a Direct Indictment.Following is a link to what I think will answer your original question. The link is to the Circuit Clerk Manual (2016). See Chapter 2, Case Number Assignment, 2-1 et seq:
From my understanding when the Criminal Complaint is in the Magistrate Court it has a 10F-325 number. When moved to the Circuit Court awaiting going to the Grand Jury it has a 10 - B- 325 number as boundover. If the Actual Main Case file number is like 10-F-25, I believe that when it comes from the Grand Jury with a True-Bill Indictment each of the separate Charges of the Indictment, with it's own Criminal Case number, comes back to the Circuit Court again with the Criminal Case File number with a letter F like 10F- 325 and 10F-326 number as 2.2 reveals. If it is Misdemeanor charge it would be with a letter M and show as 10M-325 and 10-M-325 and be placed into the Actual Main Case File 10-F-25. And should appear on the Docket Case as such with a Case File number with a letter F for each Count of the Indictment under the Actual Main CAse file number 10-F-25 That is my understanding of this, and again I may be wrong. That's what I'm trying to verify from someone who knows and has dealt with such.
