Highlight

A supervisory writ is issued rarely and cautiously only to rectify errors and prevent injustice in extraordinary cases when no adequate alternative remedy exists.
A criminal complaint may be amended at any time before a finding or verdict if no additional or different offense is charged and if substantial rights of the defendant are not prejudiced.
A date is an element of a criminal offense only if there would be no crime if the conduct occurred on the date alleged in the complaint.
