Q: When An jail inmate has a bond set.By law do they have to let him out when someone comes up there cash in hand to bail?
A: If the bond was set at 2500, then you will only need 10% of that, or 250, to bond him out. The State's Attorney cannot prevent you from posting that amount. You need to contact the holding facility where the uncle is at and ask them about their procedure for bonding out an inmate. The only way a person in pre-trial custody cannot be bonded out is if the bond was set at no-bond. You will need to hire a lawyer in that situation.
Q: Shouldn't all concurrent charges run together?
A: They should.
Q: How do go about obtaining a Final Disposition .
A: This is not something you should normally be seeking to obtain :) These kinds of questions inevitably require inquiries that are very fact specific; contact an attorney if you are facing a legal problem related to this.
Q: Someone left a message threatening me on a voicemail, but it may have been deleted. Can I still press charges?
A: Your testimony may be admissible by way of a hearsay exception. Whether you will be able to press criminal charges based on this evidence alone is another matter.
Q: Is it illegal to carry a fire arm in the state of Illinois?
A: Your right to carry a firearm has recently been expanded via Illinois Supreme Court case People v. Aguilar. There are exceptions however, and to find out whether you are one of them, look up the law, or consult an attorney.
Q: Im 17 years old, I live in chicago illinois. Is it illegal to carrie a loaded bb gun in public?
A: At the moment yes. See People v. Aguilar, an Illinois Supreme Court case decided this month.
Q: If someone is charged with armed violence category 1 and the police do not show up for the pretrial dates what happens?
A: Most likely nothing. What matters is whether the police arrive for the trial date, and they will. I highly doubt the police will not attend a pre-trial suppression motion, which is one exception, if the State's Attorney requests their appearance.
Q: If policeman tells me to get out of my car for a search, do I have to comply?
A: Practically speaking, I would. You're looking at more serious problems down the road by not complying.
Q: What evidence do you really need to be charge with a aggravated battery with a firearm?
A: Rest assured that much less is required to charge you with the offense than what is actually required to convict you. A list of the kind of evidence that could actually be used against you is beyond the scope of this response.
