Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. I have not been arrested but have been threatened with embezzlement charges.
A: You shouldn't answer any further questions without an attorney. You have a fifth amendment privilege against self-incrimination. What city did this occur in?
Q. Can police put spy software on my phone, if so do they need a warrant and can I know if they did
A: Generally speaking, the police would need a warrant to place any software on your phone that tracked your movement or collected information. You can read the most recent U.S. Supreme Court opinion on this matter here: You should note, however, that engaging in any illegal activity online may result in your computer's i.p. address being identified which can subsequently lead to police search warrants being served upon your isp. You won't know about that until the police are at your door. Finally, you should be aware that police departments are increasingly using stingray devices. They don't need to put anything directly on your phone to monitor your phone when using a stingray.
Q. My friend borrowed my car to go out of state and sold my car instead of returning it to me. What do I do?
A: You should file a police report. If your 'friend' sold your car, that's a crime.
Q. Can my original video testimony be used during trial if I dont take the stand
A: It is unclear what you mean by 'original video testimony.' If you testified at the preliminary examination, yes that can be used during the trial irrespective of whether you testify at trial. If you testified at an evidentiary hearing, that generally can't be used, but in certain circumstances it can be used for limited purposes. If you are referring to a recorded statement that you provided to the police, that can be used against you unless the judge finds that the statement was taken in violation of your constitutional rights. In most such situations, the issue of the admissibility of the statement would be determined at an evidentiary hearing before trial.
Q. A friend of mine was arrested for drunk driving over four years ago,he has not been to court yet. Can he still be convic
A: Yes, your friend can be convicted - he probably has an outstanding bench warrant for his arrest. Your friend would be well-advised to contact an attorney.
