Legal Answers
12 Questions Answered

Q. Can any lawyer help me with getting a bond lifted and take a payment plan from me? My bond is 1000$
A: The easy answer is yes but that can mean you go back into jail which I am sure what you do not want. In some places, a Judge will allow a bond to be turned over to an attorney prior to the case being completed. It is a case by case basis and not all judges will allow it. If you owe any money to the court in that county, they normally will take their money first as well.
Q. Could the police arrest me for this?
A: They could depending on what she said. If she was in fear of being hit, the charge could be assault. They could also possibly charge you with disorderly conduct. It is important for you not to speak to the police if they come to speak to you.
Q. Someone I know got charged w/ forgery for writing a fake prescription. They plan to plead guilty what is the punishment
A: There are different ways to charge a crime. No idea what the possible punishments were without the charging document
Q. If I get one charge, can I get another charge over the same situation a month later?
A: More than likely they can. They are well within the Statute of Limitations to charge that offense. There is one possible exception to that rule. The real question is can they use that blood draw against him in Court? Certain procedures and protocols must be followed to make that information admissible. He should consult with an attorney ASAP.
Q. Hello, how do I file a motion to request a chief judge to review my case when the presiding judge is prejudice?
A: It sounds like you are trying to substitute the judge in your case. This is an issue that should be discussed with your attorney. What you view as prejudice may simply be the judge's normal demeanor and there may be other judges in the county that are worse for you.
Q. what are the consequences for a 15 yr old who is being charged with unlawful videotaping another person? In Illinois
A: In any juvenile case, you can be placed on Continuance under supervision, which is like Court Supervision in adult court, to being placed in the Juvenile Department of Corrections. Factors that typically go in to the decision of punishment are severity of the crime and the Minor's prior criminal history. I have seen some minors get slapped on the wrist for some serious first offenses while other minors have been sent to the Department of Corrections on seemingly small crimes because of their criminal history
Q. I am currently on probation for retail theft and now I am being accused of residential theft and have probation meeting
A: Sounds like they are rounding up "the usual suspects" as opposed to actually doing the police work. If you are being accused of an offense, you should not speak to ANYONE about it other than your attorney, including probation.
Q. I was charged with a aggravated domestic battery and a domestic battery as well as other charges at the same time
A: Often times the police will proceed with charges even when the alleged victim declines. Unfortunately, this seems to be what happened in your matter.
Q. Unlawful arrest illegal search and seziure
A: Often times our friends, the police, say things that can only be called lies. Depending on whether or not anyone gave consent to search the home is a question for the judge to answer.
