I sent the first 10 pages of my story to a proofreader and he said there are three major plot holes so far. The first one is, is that they do not explain why the police arrest a suspect at a bar. The suspect is having fun time with her friends, and they come in to arrest her. The reason why I set it in bar was to show how she likes to live the night life, so the scene serves that function, and also her arrest. But I was told that this is a plot hole cause when judges sign off on arrest warrants, they need to give authorization on where the person is to be arrested, such as their home. This is so the cops can search the home or cannot, depending. But no judge would put on the warrant that the suspect is to be arrested at a bar she may be at. After the arrest, I do not explain why the suspect does not bail her self out. I didn't feel this needed an explanation though. Maybe she couldn't afford to, or the judge considered her a flight risk, etc. I just didn't think it needed an explanation and I only wanted to concentrate on things that did more so, and keep it tight and simple. But he says this is also a major plot hole and that the reader will just throw it down at this point. The next one is, is that the suspect's attorney goes to question one of the witnesses. However, when the witness is questioned, she does not have an attorney present. The proofreader says that this also is a major plot hole, as attorneys do not question witnesses with their attorney present. The reason why I wrote it so that she does not have an attorney present, is that I feel the story will kind of drag just a little if he says she should call her attorney to be present before answering any questions. Then I got to skip ahead to a new scene later, when the attorney has arrived. Also the witness is probably very busy since she has a life and all, and will probably not call an attorney, which she will probably have to pay, unless the other lawyer is willing, and will have to wait around for the attorney to show up and all. It just seems like it's bit of a drag to do that. However, if these are plot holes that are big enough that the reader will stop and chuck it as he says, then maybe I really need to rethink these, or explain them in much more detail. But he only read the first few pages and I wonder how many bigger holes there is going to be since it only gets more complicated from there obviously. What do you think, do these count as plot holes?
