Q. I was arrested and charged with UCPV bail set$12,000 I didn’t steal vehicle it was given to me as a gift by a friend
A: There are situations in life where an attorney is not a luxury, but a necessity. This is one of those times as Unauthorized Control of a Propelled Vehicle in Hawaii is a serious felony. Based on your question you may have a potential defense (Lack of intent) that may be worthwhile to discuss with an attorney. Best of luck.
Q. Oh and I nearly forgot when they took me to the holding cell .I was repeatly asking to talk to my lawyer
A: When someone is in police custody, and subjected to interrogation, all questioning must cease if the person detained requests a lawyer. Also, if the person detained asserts their right to remain silent, police must cease questioning, however, my resume questioning at a later time. Please talk to your attorney about this, as there may be a basis for a motion to suppose any incriminating statements you may have made.
Q. Backing out of supermarket stall I bumped into someone behind. There was no damage.The lady said I dont know what to do
A: I recommend that you hire a competent attorney, or, if financial circumstances do not permit that, to apply for the services of a public defender. Depending on how you are charged, this is a matter which could result in the potential for jail time under these facts, possibly up to 10 days! While the imposition of a jail sentence by the court is not likely, there are collateral consequences which could include having points assessed against your license in your new home state, having to pay more for your auto insurance, or, having your carrier dump you as an insured.

This is a serious matter worthy of your attention. You have a right to a trial. Even if you elect to forego a trial, and want to “get it over with” a skilled attorney can negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce your charge to something that will not have a dire affect on either your driver’s license or your insurability. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to me. Either way, I wish you the best of luck. ... Read More
