Legal Answers
109 Questions Answered

Q. What should i do with an open container charge? Pulled over for failure to stop and had open container in car.
A: I agree with Stewart's answer. To add some more information. There is typically a benefit of hiring a lawyer to seeking a plea deal that allows you to take an alcohol course in exchange for getting the case dismissed. This will save you some money and protect your criminal record. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend hiring a lawyer in order to protect your future criminal record.
Q. Is it normal for there to be different charges that are not listed when you were told certain charges you will c judge 4
A: I agree with the answer below but straight to the point is that nothing on the internet has to be perfect. Often times the information a court or database, such as public access, does not public accurate information. The most accurate information for you to refer to is your indictment. If you are getting close to your trial, I would expect that you should already be aware of what you being charged with as you will need to know in order for you or your attorney to prepare a strong defense.
Q. A teenager molested a child for three years straight 6 years ago, Is there hope to get justice for that now? Arizona.
A: If you are reporting a crime, you need to contact your local law enforcement agency. Arizona felonies have a statute of limitations of seven years. However, certain crimes, such as this, may fall into a certain category where there is no statute of limitations. I will not go into further details over a public forum about the specifics of this legal question and answer.
