Bail is not really the issue, the issue is disobeying a court order. The person can be held until the judge is satisfied that the court order will be complied with (by paying the money or some part of it).See question
Hi, I am from Paksitan. Someone has posted my name and my mobile number at a website i.e. justfunpoint.com. Now I am receiving a number of calls for sexual contact. I did not find any contact info pertaining to the said website so that I can r...
It would be far simpler to change your number than to sue a U.S. company from Pakistan.See question
I was handed a uniform citation today with Failure to Stop at R. Light and JOL Passenger Restriction. However, I did stop completely behind the crosswalk for certain before making the right turn as I had to let a pedestrian cross the street. Follo...
Do not waste money on an attorney. Go yourself and politely and non-argumentatively explain your story. Then try to slip in how good your driving record is (if true) and that you promise not to do it again.See question
I need the disposition to acquire housing. Also, can I call the Salem, MA, courthouse to find out specifically what the final judgement on my case is?
You may mean "dismissal" rather than "disposition." If you are on CWOF status, your case will be administratively reviewed at the probation end date. If you are in compliance, it will automatically be dismissed.See question
In early 2013 I received a summons to appear in court on a larceny of 250 charge. I went to court, was appointed a public defender & was released with a new date on personal recognizance. I had another date that I showed up for & then was given an...
If you have no record, explain the circumstances and, most importantly, you turn yourself in rather than waiting to be picked up, the judge may let you go on a personal or a small bail. There is no guarantee of course, but it will only get worse the longer you wait. Call a lawyer to help you through this process.See question
Currently incarcerated 4-5 yr sentence almost 2 served
I assume you mean a pardon since there is no chance of clemency on a four-year prison sentence. And yes you can file, but you should wait until many years have passed and you can demonstrate why you are entitled to it.See question
Hi, A man is suspected of burning down his childhood home in which his father was burned to death (In Boston). He was 19 years-old at the time. No sufficient evidence was found to convict him. Twenty years later, the case was reopened and concr...
Yes, there is no time limit for a murder prosecution. But you say there was no sufficient evidence to "convict him" before. Was there a trial back then? If so, double jeopardy would bar his prosecution.See question
He's charge with home invasion, 2 a&b w/ deadly weapon(kicking/stomping on someone with a boot) and 2 a&b
I agree with the other lawyers. If he is convicted, a likely sentence would be something longer than what he has done previously.See question
wondering when you can parole, if at all. I thought it was 2/3 your time
The first two lawyers are incorrect and the third lawyer is correct. This is clearly a state prison sentence and parole is available only after serving the bottom number, which in this case is three years. The guidelines are irrelevant here. For obvious practical reasons, you will not be paroled but will have to serve the maximum, one day more.See question
Already had arraignment plead not-guilty and next court date is 2/26/14. Now that my mandatory 30 day suspension is up can go to any RMV to get my license re-instated or do I need to go to an RMV hearing first?
The previous lawyers are correct about the reinstatement fee.See question
