26 Questions Answered
- Q. If sentenced in AZ other than CA and was granted to do the sentencing here do the terms of the sentencing change?
- A: Who is saying this? The courts or the domestic violence program? California Penal Code 1203.097 contains the requirements for domestic violence programs, including the 52 week duration. The program may not be willing to adjust the California requirements to fit your Arizona sentence. I would start by checking with your attorney in Arizona. If you can get a successful progress report from the California program after 26 sessions, the Arizona court might accept that as successful completion, or your attorney may be able to negotiate with the program provider for a shorter term.
- Q. What code is penal code 140856
- A: I don't know... but there's no such section in the California Penal Code, which ends at 34370. The Legislature would have to enact 106,486 more new laws before they get there.
- Q. I was served with a lawsuit, the Plaintiff Attorney wrote "Attorney for defendant" on the complaint. Will this hurt him.
- A: It sounds like a simple typo. It might cause the other attorney a moment of embarrassment, but it's unlikely to do more than that.
