Legal Answers
16 Questions Answered
Q. If a person is out on bond and then it gets violated can the violation charge be removed or dropped?
A: If this was a situation where you were to have no contact with the victim as a condition of bond and you contacted the victim, now your bond is violated or revoked. The victim cannot simply drop charges in most cases. Once you are arrested, it is the State vs you, not the victim.
Q. I feel I had ineffective Representation and rushed to take a Plea. How can i withdraw my Plea even if I waived my rights
A: If you have already been sentenced then you have a limited time to file a motion to withdraw your guilty plea. If you feel that your plea was not knowingly and voluntarily given or your attorney was ineffective then you may be able to file a habeas. You definitely should consult with an attorney to discuss your options.
