Client Reviews
James Powell June 15, 2020
This lawyer will not contact you or keep you informed. This lawyer won't do his job. He will set you up for failure. He left me in jail 3 months longer than neccessary. He costed me my job. He hasn't once told me a court date. You will go to prison with this lawyer. I want to see my daughter and he won't file the motion with the courts.

Q. 3 people arrested for drugs and guns 2 went fta the 3rd went to court it got thrown out what happens to the 2 fta's
A: The persons that failed to appear remain subject to prosecution. Jeapordy did not attach to those individuals since they did not appear to defend themselves. There may be reasons that the failure to disclose "Brady" material in the case of accused number one will impact the prosecution of accused 2 and 3. It is impossible to say given the facts stated.
Q. If someone fails to appear in court in Arkansas are they considered a fugitive?
A: If the Court issues a warrant for the arrest of an accused for failure to appear, the accused may be considered a fugitive. That is, the active warrant subjects the person named in the warrant to arrest and detention. The term "fugitive" is sometimes used to invoke jurisdiction of law enforcement agencies like the U.S. Marshals Service. U.S. Marshals may assist local authorities apprehend as "fugitives" persons who are fleeing from state prosecution.
Q. To be arrested with theft by property does the person have to be in possession of said property for them to get arrested
