Q. If the is a motion to quash for insufficient evidence,... granting motion for extension of time response
A: You haven't given us enough information to answer the question, I'm afraid. Anytime you file a motion to quash or to suppress evidence in a criminal case each side has time to respond and to present evidence (typically at a Preliminary Hearing or District Court Arraignment in felony cases). Granting additional time for a response to one side doesn't take away the right for each party to have their position heard by judge and ruled on. Again the question is a bit cryptic at this point.
Q. if you plead no contest to felony embezzlement for a fine of $1000.00, can you still leave that state?
A: As a general rule, there are rarely restrictions prohibiting your traveling outside the state during a felony or misdemeanor probation (outside of the standard requirement that you give written and/or oral notification to your probation officer as required by the Rules and Conditions of Probation you will be required to execute). They want you to work and make money as much as you do.
Q. If I were to get in a car with the understanding there wasn't anything in the car and find out way late is it possession
A: The state of Oklahoma will often assume that all occupants are in possession of whatever illegal contents are found after the search of a car in which they are riding during a traffic stop. They routinely charge multiple occupants in such situations with possession of the same contraband. The good news is it's a Trier of Fact (a jury of your peers), not the district attorney or the judge, that can ultimately listen to your story. They tend to be a bit less cynical and more willing to Grant a defendant the benefit of the doubt. However, factors such as previous convictions for a similar drug (previous felony convictions at all), can certainly affect your credibility in the eyes of even the jury in relating your story. The fact that you knew this person to be a drug user, as evidenced by your pre-trip lecture admonishing them not to have anything illegal in the car, might be viewed as your having assumed the risk that they were might lie to you. You need to hire an attorney and allow him to explain the extenuating circumstances to the judge and the district attorney.
Q. My daughter, age 20 was charged with this violation. Possession by persons under age 21. With this being under the Juv
A: It depends upon the specific facts of the case. You need to hire an attorney to review the case and negotiate a very favorable result (there is probably an excellent chance to keep this off of her record provided she has no prior involvement with law enforcement). Hire an attorney immediately.
