I, [name of prosecutor], the undersigned Assistant District Attroney, do hereby certify that a true and correct copy of the foregoing document was served on the attorney for the Defendant by certified mail on 11/10/09.
When you sign a certificate of service it is supposed to be true. If you file a document with a false certificate of service, that’s a class A misdemeanor. (We’ve covered this before. Every year or so.)
When I sign a certificate of service, I make damn sure I’ve done what the certificate says I’ve done before filing the document, not only because it’s right, but also because I’m not laboring under the delusive belief that your boss won’t file charges against me.
Are you laboring under the delusive belief that she won’t file charges against you?
