Q. My partner of 15 years and father of my two kids was recently arrested for aggravated assault.
A: Tough question to answer given the little information you provide... Feel free to give me a call and we can discuss in more detail.
Q. Do I have the right to present legal documentation to judge, if I was served a default warrent? I was legaly detained
A: By what you described, it sounds as if perhaps there is more information that might explain why you were held. First off, once a Default Warrant is issued and you are stopped by the police, they have no choice by to arrest you. To answer your question, generally yes, you are able to and should provide documentation explaining why you missed a prior court appearance. HOWEVER, from what you described, your being held on $1,000 bail or 60 days in jail sounds more like a judge either revoking your bail on another pending open case, in which case you are held without bail for up to 60 days and $1,000 bail was imposed on the other case. I would need additional information in order to be able to provide a more concise answer...
Q. If a search warrant has the wrong date of birth and soical security number for that person,will that case be thrown out?
A: Generally, in order to be valid, the form and content of the affidavit accompanying the Search Warrant application must describe with particularity the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized. Where the search warrant fails to accurately describe the persons date of birth and social security number, a challenge could and probably should be made that the warrant fails to comply with the particularity requirement and is therefore defective. The question for the court, however, will be whether the warrant is so facially defective in failing to particularize the place to be searched or the person to be seized. On that note, one issue that might cure any defects on the application itself is whether the accompanying affidavit addresses or corrects the mistake. In other words, the affidavit attached can cure the particularity deficiency and validate the warrant.
