Q. What is the likely hood of jail time and for how long for
A: It's impossible to say with the little information that you've given. Make sure that you have an attorney to represent you. Your attorney will be able to go over all the facts of the case with you and advise you.
Q. im 17 & slapped a pregnant women , i now have a court date what might happen?
A: You will probably be put on probation and have to complete counselling and stay out of trouble.
Q. Hi I'm 20 years old and i got a possession of alcohol under 21 charge. The bottle had a sip left. My record is clean
A: You should have an attorney representing you. If you're convicted, it would be a permanent criminal conviction. If you have a clean record, you are probably eligible for the first offender program. The first offender program is like probation, but if you successfully complete the program, the charge gets dismissed so you don't have a permanent criminal conviction on your record.
Q. Is it illegal for a officer to reach in your car without a warrant to grab anything?
A: If an officer has probable cause, they can reach into your car and seize evidence. In this case, it appears that the officer probably had probable cause.
Q. I recently got caught shoplifting about 100$ worth of items, they pressed charges & i got charged with petty larceny
A: If you have a clean record, you probably will not get active jail time. You may only get a fine. You should contact a local attorney because you may be able to have the charge dismissed so that it's not on your record.
Q. My husband was charged with a misdemeanor for assault and battery while incarcerated. I need resources or legal advice
A: If he's charged with a crime, a lawyer will be appointed to represent him. If he's just charged with an internal jail offense, he will almost certainly not be able to have an attorney assist with that process.
Q. Who would be a good pro bono lawyer for a murder case that happen in 2008?
A: You should contact the various innocence projects/clinics to see if they can help you.
Q. Im currently fighting 2 felonies 5 misdemeanors. Felonies certified at preliminary, the misdemeanors nolle prosequed
A: The preliminary hearing is part of the process, but it's not the final trial. The trial is much more involved than the preliminary hearing.
Q. Arrested for a Protective order violation and on the arrest warrant there are no particulars.
A: You will be given the chance to hire an attorney or have an attorney appointed to represent you. At that point, your attorney will be able to get more information about the case. Protective orders can be violated even if you don't have physical contact with someone. If you call, text, or email someone that could also be a violation.
