Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered
Q. The "Motion in Limine" that the Prosecuter / District Attorney has, does the Jury get to view it at any point in time?
A: No
Q. [CA] If I stole something as a child (under 12) could I still get legally prosecuted years later if someone Found out?
A: There is a statute of limitations, and you would not be charged.
Q. Can a defendant relieve his retained / private attorney without any reason? Even 3 days before trial?
A: A defendant has a right to hire the attorney of his/her choice, so you may request to have your private attorney relieved. The Judge may want to inquire why, and if they feel it is simply a delay tactic, there may be an issue. If your attorney claims a conflict of interest, that too may be inquired upon separately by the Judge (or your attorney may file a declaration under seal explaining the conflict), but generally that would be allowed. You only get a public defender though if you financially qualify. I agree with Mr. Gribow, that you may want to simply have a new private attorney standing by ready to go if the Judge sees this as a delay tactic and your new lawyer tries to request more time.
