7 Questions Answered

Q. plea deal changed my simple possession to possession of paraphernalia but on courtbar it still says sim. pos. why?
A: You should contact your previous attorney, or go to the clerk's office for the most specific answer to your question. Courtbar.org appears to link to the Virginia Supreme Court's website, which I am very familiar with. When you pull up your case, under "charge information" it will have "possession of marijuana," correct? But, if you look directly below that field, and go down three other fields, you should see a field titled "Amended Charge." In THAT field, you should see, "possession of paraphernalia." You're probably overlooking that field, which shows what your charge was changed to, and only seeing the original charge, and the guilty finding. But, if there was a guilty finding, you should examine whether the charge was amended, and what it was amended to. That will be the charge you were found guilty of, not the original.
Q. What do I do if I’ve been charged for lying to a police officer when I didn’t really lie to them?
A: If you have been charged with a crime, the burden of persuasion before the court if on the Government. In other words, the government has to convince the judge / jury that there is no reasonable doubt that you lied to them. That is an extremely high burden to meet. Obviously, preparation of a defense in a situation that you describe requires the time and attention of an attorney, and you should contact an attorney to sit down and talk with them about the specifics of your case, so that you can chart a path forward as to demonstrating to the judge / jury that there are reasonable doubts that you lied to the officer. In order to prove that you were lying to the officer, they have to not only prove that what you said was not true, but that you KNEW it wasn't true when you said it. That is going to be the hardest part of their case against you. Whether they can prove that you knew it wasn't true, will take a thoughtful review of all the facts in your case by a skilled criminal defense attorney. You should contact an attorney for assistance in your defense.
Q. Sentencing guidelines for 3rd larceney charge in va
A: This is not something that can be answered without meeting with an attorney, one on one. The sentencing guidelines take into account some extremely specific information about the person to be sentenced, including the number of current charges, the number and nature of the previous charges and a lot of information that are specific to the person being sentenced. The purpose of the guidelines are to create a sentencing range to recommend to the judge about the specific defendant. That recommendation range is going to be programmed around the prior criminal history, the current charges, the nature of the prior charges and a number of other nuanced factors that are designed to let the judge know how this particular defendant should be punished, how other defendants that were similar to this defendant were punished, and this particular defendant's likelihood to reoffend. You should contact a skilled criminal defense attorney and present them with all of this information so that they can calculate the guidelines for you. Alternatively, if that person is soon to be sentenced, the sentencing judge will (almost certainly, unless the parties choose to waive it) order the guidelines to be calculated, and you can get a copy of the guidelines usually a week or two before the sentencing date.
Q. i was pulled over and found to have schedule IV substance and now i have a court date. i know that it is usually a
A: You should contact an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney would be able to assist you by getting all of the facts of your specific case and determining what bases there are to challenging the stop and search as well as any other possible defenses. After reviewing all of that information as well as the police report, the attorney would be able to advise as to the strength of these defenses as well as all of the potential outcomes, and to assist with mitigation. The legitimacy of the stop and discovery of the schedule IV drug is a very fact intensive inquiry and you should contact an attorney for a thorough examination of the facts.
Q. Felony DUI Court Case
A: I think the answer to this would change from courthouse to courthouse and judge to judge. Nevertheless, I believe that for practical reasons (i.e. - the prosecutor likely may not have their witnesses present and prepared) the original date set for plea will not be the trial date. Again, that would heavily depend on what witnesses the prosecutor needs, whether they can be present, and whether the Court's docket that day has space for a trial. I would strongly recommend you contact your lawyer for the specific answers to the questions you've raised. They will best know the likely outcomes based on the scenario.
Q. what can we do when friend was moved from jail and they dropped the court date
A: If I understand your question correctly, your friend was sentenced, and was still being held locally at the local jail awaiting his transfer to the prison with Virginia's department of corrections. Unfortunately, I do not believe that there is anything that can be done. Virginia Code section 19.2-303 indicates that the Judge has jurisdiction to suspend or modify the sentence, while your friend was still being held locally. However, once your friend was transferred, the judge no longer had jurisdiction to modify the sentence. The only thing that could have changed that would be if the judge set aside the previous sentencing order once s/he set the hearing for the reconsideration. But that's totally up to the judge to do that, and many are not going to do that.
Q. Stole a wallet with nothing in it no hard evidence should I get a lawyer
A: If you're charged with the theft, then I think it's absolutely a good idea to consider retaining counsel. Without knowing more, it's hard to assess the gravity of the situation. For example, who is asserting that you stole the wallet? What is their basis for that conclusion? Was it stolen by force, or threat of force? Was it picked up off the ground without any apparent owner around? More importantly, how credible is the party making this accusation. All of these are very important factors in determining any criminal liability. It's also very important to note that larceny related offenses can often have collateral consequences as well, that will severely affect current and future employment as well as immigration consequences as well. A conviction could be the basis for the loss of employment, the prevention of new employment, and adverse immigration consequences as well. At the very least, I would advise that you get a consultation, so that you can be in the best position to decide.
