Q. Is it legal for an officer to search your car and ask you question not related to why you were pulled over?
A: An officer needs probable cause or consent to search a car. So, depending on the circumstances, yes, your automobile can be searched for something unrelated to why you were pulled over. And an officer can question you about anything (there are some exceptions to this when a person is in custody but that requires more facts to know if that applies to you).
Q. Can you get charge with possession of a firearm by convicted felon 3 times for one gun if so please explain
A: I need more information to answer this question.
Q. If it's my first time in trouble and its Distribution of weed to a c.i. twice will I face prison time
A: Depends on the judge, prosecutor, facts of the case, your history, and other things. Do you have an attorney? What county is this case in?
Q. My son entered an auto and took a gun from the car. What's he facing?
A: Entering auto carries up to 5 years in prison. If he is also charged with theft, he can be facing more time.
Q. As long as you have two lights are you suppose to get tickets .? Is there a way to fight this ticket ?
A: Two lights for what? I need more information.
Q. GA Failed breathalyzer test 1st dui got 1 yrs probation judge gave me a limited permit 2 drive. But dmv said i I refused
A: It sounds like you did not appeal the suspension of your license. When the arresting officer gave you the 45 day permit, you had to appeal that in order to keep your driver's license. It sounds like you did not appeal that, and, thus, your license was suspended for 1 year.
Q. What is involved in resolving a misdemeanor failure to appear charge?
A: You need to consult with an attorney in NC.
Q. why am i not in my co defendants discovery? i was not arrested but grand jury indicted why ?
A: This is a hard question to answer without knowing a lot more information. The District Attorney ultimately decides whether to bring a case or not. So they can indict you without you having been arrested. As to why you are not in your co-defendant's discovery, I cannot answer that question without knowing more information.
Q. I was told that the blood results they took for a DUI in November were not back. They said if they wanted to request a
A: It is unlikely. The prosecutor will likely request (and be granted) a continuance based upon the blood test results not being returned yet.
