Q. How would i go about dropping a order of protection through the courts I've written letters and nothing please help
A: Only the judge can dismiss the order of protection and a hearing is often required to do so. I have included a link to the forms used in AZ courts for Orders of Protection. Go to page 17 and use the "Request" page to request the court dismiss the Order. You will have to explain why you want the Order dismissed. After you submit the paperwork, the court usually sets a hearing that will you will have to attend. Hope that helps! Best of luck! https://www.azcourts.gov/Portals/33/DV/AOCDVPO.pdf
Q. If i was pulled over for a crime i did not comitt and was patted down and searched and found marijana can i be charged
A: Hello and thank you for the question. If the initial stop and detention were unlawful, you may be able to successfully defend the possession of marijuana. However, such a challenge relies heavily on the facts of your particular case. A lot more information is needed to give you the best answer. I suggest setting up a consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney to discuss your specific case. Most attorneys, including myself, offer free initial consultations. Set one up! Best of luck
Q. My son is 20 is going to graduate from college, works, has his own car, apparment. Excellent kid!. He has a court order
A: Hello and thank you for your question. Because your son is charged with a felony, he will be appointed an attorney if he cannot afford one. In terms of possible outcomes, it is unlikely your son will do any jail time but making sure he has a clean record is very important for his future. I cannot speak about the possibility of a dismissal without knowing more about the case but it is possible to resolve these types of cases with a diversion program. Such a program may include classes, drug testing, etc. However, once the program is completed, the charges against your son will be dismissed. Your son needs the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney. I suggest setting up a consultation to discuss your son's situation in greater detail. Most attorneys, including myself, offer free initial consultations. Set one up! Best of luck.
Q. In felony murder cases, does everyone involved get charged or can prosecutor pick and chose who they want to charge?
A: Prosecutors make charging decisions based on the evidence. If there is sufficient evidence all parties were involved, then all parties will be charged. In a typical felony murder prosecution, all "confederates" (actors in the original crime) are charged.
Q. Need a lawyer to get off probation Have been out 3 yrs no police contact, following all probation regulations.
A: Hello and thank you for the question. You can hire an attorney to file a Petition to Terminate Probation (you can also file the motion yourself). Such as motion is typically appropriate after you have finished at least 50% of the probation time, stayed current on fines and fees, and have remained out of trouble. The cost for such a motion varies by attorney. I suggest setting up a consultation to discuss your situation in greater detail. Most attorneys, including myself, offer free initial consultations. Set one up! Best of luck.
Q. What does it mean if the Court of Appeals sets a hearing date, then vacates it’s previous order & declines jurisdiction?
A: It means they are declining to hear the Petition for Special Action and whatever order was appealed will stand.
Q. i had a misdemeanor charge for shoplifting and lost my fingerprint clearance card would i be able to get it back
A: It is possible to get it back. You would have to apply for a waiver called a "Good cause exception." I would also suggest speaking with an attorney about getting that conviction "set aside." This will give you the best shot at getting that fingerprint clearance card back. Unlike many States, Arizona does not allow for criminal convictions, felony or misdemeanor, to be expunged, sealed, or purged. Arizona law allows for convictions to be set aside. Having a conviction set aside is similar to a retroactive dismissal and vacates the conviction against you. Most attorneys that handle these types of cases, including myself, will offer free initial case reviews. Set one up. Best of luck!
Q. i am looking for info in re: how many cases involving manslaughter or murder in arizona recieved a 25yr or less sentence
A: I am not sure how to best go about gathering that information but I would start with a phone call to the Clerk's Office. I have included a link to their website with more information. Best of luck! (602)372-5375 http://www.clerkofcourt.maricopa.gov/new_contacts.asp
Q. Does a accusation from 10years ago have a strong case in court
A: There are a couple issues with a 10 year old accusation. One would be the statute of limitations - meaning the case may be too old to be prosecuted. However, there are certain offenses where the standard 7 year statute of limitations for felonies would not apply. Second, what is the reason they are coming forward now? There could be ways of attacking the accusation but more information would be needed. In sort, a 10 year old accusation could be enough to have you prosecuted. I suggest sitting down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to try to get ahead of all of this. Most attorneys, including myself, offer free initial consultations. Set one up. Best of luck!
