SCLCrRLJ 2.1(c) CITIZEN COMPLAINTS Any person filing a criminal citizen complaint pursuant to CrRLJ 2.1(c) must provide a sworn written statement of the probable cause supporting the crimes alleged. The judge will review the alleged crimes and the probable cause statement to determine whether the request should be granted or denied. At the discretion of the judge, a hearing may be set to hear additional evidence or to allow the named defendant or the prosecuting attorney an opportunity to present evidence in opposition to the filing of the complaint. If the judge grants or denies the filing of the complaint on the basis of the sworn affidavit without hearing, the judge shall state in writing the reasons for granting or denying the filing of the complaint.
