    If found guilty, your terms of probation will probably limit your ability to travel out of state/country. Have your attorney ask the court for permission at the time of sentencing. However, why are you giving up so quickly to a guilty verdict. The breath test is a major piece of evidence in an OUI prosecution. If you did not provide one, you may bery well be found not guilty if you challenge the charge. There is no cost to consult with me. I would encourage you to call and let me hear the facts...

    First and foremost, you should NOT even think about accepting any disposition that even hints at jail. This is a first offense misdemeanor and you will be looking at some sort of probation at the worst. Probably the most important thing that you can do to influence the outcome is to hire a good attorney. There is a reason why people who are smart and well off tend to do better and that is that they are smart enough and have the means to hire a very good laywer who is not going to settle for a...

    Your friend really needs to get a final disposition in CA before she can transfer any probationary terms to MA since until final disposition, she will not know what her probation terms are. She should also explain to her CA attorney that she intends to move to MA since he/she may be able to modify the terms to make the move easier. She should be able to move and complete probation here in MA without too much difficulty if she follows this advice. The main thing will be if CA requires her to...

  4. My parents are having a really bad argument. Should i call the police to make them stop?

    Sadly, in most states if you call the police because your parents are fighting, there is a good chance that at least one of them will be going to jail. That does not necessarily mean you should not call, but you should understand the potential ramifications before you take any action. Speak to an adult that you can trust. Be careful of who you select since people in positions such as teachers and medical personal may be required by law to report issues of some forms of abuse. A clergy member or...

  5. How can I modify a restraining order to get the address of the home taken off?

    Only the judge can modify the order. You will need to go back to court with evidence that the complainant no longer resides there. She will also need to have notice of the action so she can offer her side if she chooses to do so. You should hire a lawyer to do this. It is a relatively simple thing for an attorney to do and shouldn't be that expensive. However, it is important that it is done right and therefore it is worth hiring a lawyer to make sure. If you can not afford an attorney, go to...

  6. If you are out on bail for a felony and you commit another felony while out out on bail, should bail be revoked?

    When a person who is out on bail for felonies commits another crimes, often times the bail on the first charge is revoked. It is not a gurantee, but it is often the practice. In your case, there the brother-in-law was already arrested for felonies and youi have provided such clear and convincing evidence of subsequent felonies by him, it does seem unusual that the police have not picked him up yet on the new charges. Either they do not have enough evidence yet or he is cooperating with them in...

  8. Should I ignore a Civil Demand i received from shoplifting even if the cops were called.

    Ignore the civil complaint. Expect a summons for court and criminal charges for shoplifting. The civil suit is separate and apart from the criminal action and paying it makes it no less likely that the store will pursue criminal charges. Typically the civil complaint will "imply" that if you pay it, you will somehow avoid being criminally prosecuted. In reality, when the store gives the report to the police, they have already initiated the criminal action and when you go to court and tell the...

  9. How can they try two adults at the same time when one has a very long record and one has only a couple of charges

    The difference in one's record from a co-defendant really has little to do with the guilty v. not guilty verdict/decision, unless it somehow comes into evidence, which it shouldn't. What it does effect is sentencing. Typically the person with the longer record will get a more severe sentence. This only applies if all other facts are equal, which is not very likely the case. The reason why the co-defendants are tried together is because the evidence stems from the same incident or circumstances...

    The court does limit employment for convicted sex offenders to an extent. His probation officer should be able to identify what jobs he is prohibited fom taking. However most of his difficulties will simply be that the employer chooses not to hire him based on his conviction. This is a collateral consequence but not one that is controlled by the criminal justice system. He will need to either find an employer willing to hire him, knowing of his past, or start out in a new profession where he...
