Q. My daughter is 15 and a 19 year old is threatening her in school and social media. Can I press charges for harassment?
A: Yes, you can probably file some kind of complaint with your local police or law enforcement agency; if they think that this individual is truly harassing your daughter beyond the bounds of free speech (or if they just feel like making an arrest), then that individual could be charged with something like, "Aggravated Harassment" - an A-Misdemeanor, which seeks to punish any kind of speech that is intended to communicate threats, alarm, annoyance, and so on - beyond the acceptable bounds of free speech - and to the degree that the speech is criminal - bad. If on the other hand, you feel that this individual or/and harasser is just being annoying - and won't harm anyone - then maybe you can avoid making a complaint, because life is too short to involve government police action in every small dispute that causes alarm. It's your choice.
Q. Likelihood of jail time for first time DWI (1.52) offender with vehicular assault with serious injury to victim?
A: No lawyer - no matter how much they want your money - can tell you the likelihood of jail on a criminal case, with the exception of some especially serious felony charges that appear to be supported by strong evidence. So, for example, a lawyer could guarantee a high likelihood of jail time in the following hypothetical: If you're charged in Manhattan with some felony version of vehicular assault where the victim's serious injury results in indefinite unconsciousness, the evidence against you includes a videotape of the 'accident' and a videotape of your confession to police, plus your sworn statement that the person you assaulted was an individual you disliked - separate and apart from the fact you're both drinking buddies - and you have a prior felony record involving violence, and you're on probation for some violent misdemeanor plea, then you will likely spend time in jail in any final outcome of the case. Otherwise, there's no easy way to tell odds without knowing everything - the good, the bad, and the provable.
Q. why would once someone go to court and on their court day their bail goes up from $1 to $2?
A: If there has been a change in circumstances - or a re-arrest on some other similar case - the judge may choose to set bail one dollar higher on the subject case for the purpose of noting the change in circumstances not necessarily favorable to the defendant, while ensuring that the low bail exists to allow for time-served on the subject case (while presumably the defendant is "in" on another pending matter).
