2 Questions Answered
- Q. My partner of 15 years and father of my two kids was recently arrested for aggravated assault.
- A: With domestic allegations, the police almost always make an arrest. And even with your protest to the police or the District Attorney's office, the case is going to be pushed forward. Unfortunately, any discretion that the prosecution used to have in domestic violence cases seems to have eroded over the years. However, there is something you can do to help: get him a criminal defense attorney. I have had many similar situations and with a lot of effort, many dismissals. But it may be several months and with the help of the right attorney before the end of this case.
- Q. Code. 94c/33/c notice received. If stopped by police would you be arrested or fingerprinted.
- A: If you received a summons in the mail, it means you have to go into court on a specific day regarding the allegations against you. Unfortunately the police get the wrong person sometimes, which is why we have defense attorneys and jury trials. You may want to go into the courthouse ahead of time and see if you can get a copy of the criminal complaint and police report, and go over it with a criminal defense attorney (many offer free consultations). As long as you show up to court, the police won't come to your house and arrest you on this charge. If you miss the court date, a warrant will issue and then you could get arrested.
