Q. How can someone charged in a robbery case met with so called traumatized victim then contact them to drop charges?
A: Sounds like you are suggesting someone either has or is trying to reach out to an alleged victim to get them to drop criminal felony charges. Not a good idea at all. Anyone who does so Faces the very real risk that the alleged victim might contact authorities and say they felt pressured. In that scenario the person reaching out could be charged with felony intimidation of a witness charge.
Q. Will a vape charge be on my permanent record?
A: It depends on how the case is dealt with at court. Did you have an attorney? Did you represent yourself? Typical outcomes could be an outright dismissal, a probation that’s suspended (Conviction on your record but no jail time), a deferred probation (no conviction on your record if you successfully navigate probation and no jail time), or a verdict after a trial. If you have no prior run-ins with law-enforcement then you should be entitled to, assuming there is competent evidence against you that a crime was in fact committed, a deferred probation. Hire an attorney if you have nit yet done so.
Q. Were my rights violated?
A: most judges are reasonable and quite tolerant in terms of giving you time to secure private counsel to represent you if you bond out of jail. I suspect the judge gave you more than one chance to show up with an attorney and you were either unable to secure one you could afford or you refused to do so and that’s why he put you back in custody. Their patience wears thin just like any human. The bottom line is at some point you likely waived your rights to trial on some allegations and accepted a deal involving tge payment fines and costs. You made an agreement to pay in a timely manner and have failed to do so. That always causes problems. It may feel Unfair, but it’s something you agreed to at some point in the past most likely.
Q. I recently was informed of an up upcoming court for a traffic stop that has been pending. The charges are P.I.,leavin sc
A: Not enough information to know what exactly could occur in terms of an offer of punishment or plea bargain. You need to hire an attorney immediately. If you are indigent (can't afford a private attorney) then you can complete a pauper’s affidavit and seek a free attorney to represent you.
Q. I'm trying to find out if my son has court today or tomorrow
A: You may call any of probably 1000 criminal attorneys and we can answer your question. You can also call the court clerk at the courthouse where the charges were brought.
Q. i got possession of marijuana and minor possession of tabacco and i was just wondering what my consequences might be
A: There are a lot of different variables that could affect the path your case tales. With no prior convictions you’re much more likely to have a very favorable resolution that you have had previous runnings with law-enforcement or juvenile authorities. . You need to consult a criminal defense attorney immediately. You can do a Google search and read the client reviews and check out the websites of prospective attorneys to find the law office that your are most comfortable with. Best of luck!
Q. My brother broke his probation my aunt pressed charges for knocking her teeth out she had her kids jump him he has hhd
A: Consult/ hire a seasoned trial attorney. Typically when you promise to judge you will follow the rules and stay out of trouble, and something like this arises...you can expect some meaningful problems. Sounds like there were witnesses to the event. What will they say? Who was the first aggressor? Were you kicking your feet in an effort to escape and get away? Many different factors can affect the outcome of this new incident.
Q. What's the chances of going to prison if ive been charged with abuse of the elderly first offense
A: Most attorneys that will respond to this question will, understandably, want your business first and foremost. Here’s the truth. To quantify percentages of people who go to prison on the first offense it probably sounds like somewhere around less than 1%. But when you break it down, there are certain charges that typically lend them selves to a higher risk of loss of liberty or incarceration than others. An over simplified example of such crimes might be sex crimes, violent crimes, murder, and crimes involving abuse or injury to elderly or child victims, particularly where the allegations recite meaningful physical or sexual injuries. I certainly don’t know the facts of your case. I think it’s normally unlikely that you would serve time (and remember that the State still has the burden of proving you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt). That being said, It would be premature to give you a reliable opinion without knowing the specific facts. But, yes, it’s certainly a possibility if there are aggravating factors involved in the allegations against you. This is definitely a case where you want to hire a seasoned trial attorney who may have heard the words uttered by a jury foreman ”not guilty” on more than one occasion. You need to retain an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.
Q. Is there a way I can still have the case continued where I dont testify in court infront of the gentleman?
A: Unfortunately you need to provide some additional information for a reliable response. Are you a defendant (doesn’t sound like it)? Or are you a victim or other witness (sounds more probable)? Cases get dismissed when witnesses fail, or refuse, to testify. They can be passed or continued at the request of the DA or prosecutor if the Court (Judge) allows. But, if the defendant fights the case, witnesses must give testimony that a crime was Commited and identify the individual responsible or he/ she will walk free.
