Legal Answers
42 Questions Answered
Q. If I have a confession from my ex cell mate should I contact the prosecutor and could it help me reduce my charges?
A: You should contact your defense lawyer. You should never speak with the prosecutor directly without your lawyer. If the information you have is valuable your lawyer should be able to assist you without risking any admission or other problems. Do not talk to the prosecutor or police!
Q. Can I be charged with criminal trespass for driving up a posted driveway to ask for a phone when having car troubles?
A: The answer really depends on the facts. You should contact a defense lawyer and consult about your case. If you have been charged with a criminal offense that means there is probable cause to arrest according to at least a police department and justice of the peace. Call a well reviewed, criminal defense lawyer in the area where you are charged.
Q. Is it a good idea to get a lawyer before an arraignment for misdemeanor charges?
A: A DV simple assault carries with it many unforeseen consequences. It may impact your firearms rights and result in travel restrictions to Canada. I would encourage you to consult with a criminal defense attorney in the area where you are charged. In many cases charges can be amended to avoid some consequences that impact housing, employment and recreation.
