Q. I was recently arrested in Delaware. I live in DC and cant make it on my court date. Is there a way to extend my date?
A: That would depend on what you were arrested for, and the reason you can't make the court date. You, most probably, will not be able to get a new court date. You should obtain counsel in Delaware immediately and inform him/her of the reason you want a new date. The more serious to offense, the less likely it is the court would agree to a continuance.
Q. Do you know of cases where the conviction was vacated because probable cause to pursue a trial was not done properly?
A: Probable cause hearing is to determine if there is sufficient reason to hold the defendant in custody pending trial. If the defendant was charged with 6 counts he was indicted. The indictment is the charging document. The conviction would not be vacated because of a probable cause hearing.
Q. What is a charge of C-279-2A?
A: Citation may be mistaken I looked at the criminal code and the last entry is 2C:66-10. Chapters 67 through 97 are reserved for future sections of the code.
