Default How do you referr

So Aco's or LEO's or officers How do you folks call your "Defendants"

We are in the process of using a new system. Well the "Defendant" is causing some legal issues i guess. So curious if you folks have something different to call them. Thanks for your help.

Are you asking after you charge them or during whatever issue is going on?

I always either use their name / dog (pet) owner. But that is while Im trying to correct an issue(or stupid owners) prior to charging. They are only reffered to defendent after they have been charged.

Of course we all have some great names we use in our trucks ....lol

In chicago we have administrative hearings court for our citations...which are considered civil violations. We call the offenders "respondents" in those cases...

The Circuit Court cases, which are criminal...offenders are called Defendants.

Why cant you use defendant? Would subject be ok? Or Mr. or Mrs. "Dirtbag" (assuming that their last name is in fact Dirtbag) lol

Wait...maybe I missed something..

Is this someone under investigation, or someone arrested and charged, or cited?

I only hear the term “defendant” in court. Outside of court it is actor or suspect.

reporting party for welfare check/rescue/etc. = RP
complaining party in legal action = complainant
person who owns the animal, until cite/charge = animal owner
person w.o.t.a., after cite/charge = defendant
person w.o.t.a., after cite/charge is dismissed = lucky barsted
judge who dismisses the cite/charge = moron

There. Hope that clears that up for ya.
