Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. Can a defendant have a public defender and a private attorney on record at the same time after sentencing?
A: Short answer: yes. This can occur. The defendant would have to be indigent to have a PD. Private counsel would be there as a volunteer or pro bono and both counsel would have to consent to the dual counsel arrangement, as well as the client. Not an ideal way to proceed, but under that scenario, described herein, yes, a defendant could end up being represented by both the PD and private counsel.
Q. Can someone that is pretrial in Hawaii for Terroristic Threatening get out on conditional release or Rel on Recog?
A: The answer to your question is yes, the Defendant can be released on Supervised Release on the facts you presented, provided, Defendant's record is limited to this arrest only and is not loaded with multiple arrests for similar conduct or charges.
Q. If someone is being convicted for drug charges class A B & C and it is the first time what are chance of no prison time?
A: Whether you are sentenced to prison or not will depend on too many factors to discuss in this forum. Your past criminal history, if any, is relevant to the Court's inquiry. Selling drugs v using drugs is also relevant to this issue. Conduct since arrest is also relevant. Fortunately for you, the Hawaii legislature recently passed a number of laws that might assist you in making sure you don't got to prison for drug offenses of the type you describe above. Your best bet at this time is to contact an attorney who knows the state of affairs as regards the current options available to you on the facts of your case. Barry Sooalo. 808-754-5669.

A: There are two ways to possibly change the TT conviction from a TT conviction to possibly something else. There might be other ways, but my experience tells me there are two proven methods for doing what you seek to have done. Feel free to contact my office for a further consultation regarding your matter. Barry Sooalo. 808-754-5669.
