We house out of county inmates. If a person is arrested for Assault FV, it looks like Art. 17.292 of CCP allows us to do a MEPA (it never mentions jurisdiction or venue or anything - just says "At a defendant’s appearance before a magistrate") even if the defendant was not arrested in our county. That sound right? Lastly, what does Art. 17.30 mean when we have to "certify . . . ALL . . .proceedings . . . [and then] deliver to the clerk of the proper court, without delay." That mean we transfer those MEPAs to the county where the defendant was arrested? Help!
