Legal Answers
89 Questions Answered
Q. If I was found guilty but my co-defendant gets his thrown out can I have mine thrown out also?
A: You could appeal your plea or file a rule 37 ineffective assistance of counsel or writ of error coram nobis. These are all very expensive remedies, I recommend Michael Kaiser in the Little Rock area for appeals and rule 37s.
Q. am i entitled to compensation for being held in jail until trial charged with capital murder facing death penalty
A: Possibly but the statute of limitations on lawsuits like that is typically 3 years. I’m unaware of a way to sue in Arkansas for something like this beyond the three year point. I’m not saying you can’t, I’m just saying I’m not aware of a way to do it. This is not legal advice you need to contact a lawyer to get an official opinion.
Q. I was convicted of a felony at age 18. I am now 39 is there any way to get it off of my record?
A: You can try to get a Governor’s Pardon. I charge $2,000.
