It is still possible to keep this from becoming a criminal charge. Do not try to talk your way out of it. Like everyone else advised, hire a good criminal attorney. I have practiced in the Leomister court. You want someone who has and knows the court. If you haven't already retained counsel call my office.See question

I agree with most of the other advice. Definitely hire a Criminal Defense lawyer. I get a lot of out of state warrant cases and as someone else pointed out, I start by trying to resolve the matter without your appearance. However, the actual process to recall a warrant requires the defendant to appear before the court. Then a date is set to return and the defendant is either released or held on bail. Appearing with private counsel is the best argument for release. If I am unable to resolve the matter without your appearance, I can typically set the situation up so that it can be resolved on the day you appear.See question
Our relationship ended abruptly and i over reacted out of anger and called the police the police listened to my story and unknowingly to me charged him with a bunch of charges that i never wanted.
Attorney Carramancia answered it pretty clearly. Understand that the police do not represent you, they represents the state. When you tell your story, the police listen for the elements of a crime. Once they hear the elements established, they arrest and its out of hour hands Again as Attorney Carranansia stated, your ex'es attorney may be able to guide you as to how you can best help out.See question
Weapon. I really want to keep the retraining order up. But i dont want him to get sentence for 20 years. His the father of my kids.
When weighing your decisions, do not forget that this person violated the order 4 times. S/he is not being forced to violate the order. Only you know the facts and whether these violations were threats, contacts or birthday greetings. Your safety is the reason for the order and that goal should be your ultimate guide.See question
I was give. A CWOF back in 2012 for a threat to commit a crime. I at the time didn't realize that a CWOF would still create issues for me down the road. So is my chance of becoming a police officer one thanks to it? Should probably add that it was...
Although there is no law or rule against it, you will likely have a difficult time obtaining a job in law enforcement if you have a CWOF for Threatening yo Commit a Crime. Although a CWOF is not a conviction, you did have to make an admission during the colloquy at your disposition. Before going through the testing and application you may want to contact the Chief of Police in the city or town where you would like to apply. Discuss your situation and seek his/her position. It may save you time if it is an outright no or you may be given some direction as to what you can do to improve your chances.See question

I was arrested on 2 separate occasions for DUI in Mass. One was continued with out a finding and the second was found not guilty. I was then arrested in NH and found guilty . I was under 21 on all three events and all were more than 12 years ago. ...
In addition to the hard and fast laws, it is also dependent on the chief of police in your city or town. Many of these officials have taken the rigid position that a conviction of any type produces a no. Before you invest much time and effort into the possibility based upon just the law, check the policies of your own local officials as well. A simple telephone call to the police station may give you the answer, although it is not likely the answer that you are seeking.See question

Under Chapter 265, Section 13A. (a) Whoever commits an assault or an assault and battery upon another shall be punished by imprisonment for not more than 2 1/2 years in a house of correction or by a fine of not more than $1,000. As the section states, he can be punished by up to 2 1/2 years in the House of Correction. This is the worst case. He could face anything from probation with the Batterers Program all the way up o 2 1/2 years in jail. It will depend on the extent of your injuries, his past record and the inclination of the sentencing judge. Your testimony will be far stronger if the medical reports are used to corroborate your statements. Your husband's defense lawyer will likely make issue of the fact that you didn't call the police at the time. It will really be up to the judge or jury to decide who to believe. The most effective testimony in my experience is the product of sincerity and truthfulness. Don't try to elaborate or convince the judge or jury. This agenda comes across as insincerity. Simply tell your story and be truthful. Good luck.See question
I'm asking this question for my boyfriend
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 works for himself in some capacity.See question
the prosecution has to support charges, and when your attorney has the first chance to speak with prosecution to negotiate a lesser charge or possibly drop them. The attorney will then present the client with the prosecutor's offer. My questions...
The criminal process starts at Arraignment, proceeds to Pre-trial Conference (PTC), then to Compliance & Election (C&E) then some courts have a TAD date for Trial Assignment while others proceed directly to trial after C&E. The PTC, as you state, is the first opportunity for your attorney to discuss your case with the ADA and to request evidence through the Pre-trial Conference Report. The process is not as linear and direct as I stated above. You attorney also has an obligation to produce evidence that s/he intends to present at trial as well as the prosecutor. Either side may need more than one date to gather and produce all relevant discovery. This could cause two or more Compliance dates. You only "Elect" to go to trial and whether it is a jury or jury waived trial once and that is only after all discovery is complete. There may similarly be more than one PTC dates for various reasons. Your lawyer can ask for a status date between the final compliance date where all evidence has been produced and the Election date, where you elect your form of disposition (trial by jury, trial by judge or plea). Not all judges will grant the status date but your lawyer should know how to handle that either way. When I need an additional date for my client to decide after C&E I typically ask for a TAD date that is as far out as possible. If my client then decides to plead out, we can always advance the case to an earlier date and enter the plea. It is important to have a lawyer who not only knows how to try a case but also one who knows how to manage the process. Experience is the key.See question
