  • How to get a Forcible touching case dismiss?

    How can my boyfriend get his case dismissed on Forcible touching if the police officer said he saw him on the train with his groin area touching a female and now they say they have the female as a witness too? And if the officer saw wouldn't he ha...

    Well, it sounds like you're not vey likely to get a dismissal anytime soon given there are two witnesses.

    Your best and only options are

    1) neither the officer or woman show up at court when THEyre required to and eventually the case would have to legally be dismissed

    2) have an excellent attorney handle your case and attempt to secure as much evidence in his favor to move the case toward a possible dismissal... However, given what you've said again Id say that may be somewhat unlikely.

  • First arrest for shoplifting, given DAT. At arraignment, do I have to plead guilty in order to get an acd?

    I'm a first time offender arrested for shoplifting. What exactly is the process of arraignment? I know that I will be informed of the charges against me and I have to enter a plea of not guilty, guilty or no contest. Could I ask for an acd before ...

    Carlos’s Answer

    THERE IS NO GUILTY PLEA WITH AN ACD, the prosecutor must make the application to the court (technically your attorney can as well) and your attorney join in the motion/application.

    The ACD requires no plea whatsoever

  • Been on the run for violating my federal probation, what's the worst that can happen?

    Just answer the question please

    Carlos’s Answer

    You can be prosecuted on the charge you're evading and be charged with bail jumping... You may also be affected at sentencing as the judge will consider the facts of your failure to appear. It may also affect your ability to remain out without bail as the prosecutor or judge may ask for different terms for your release.

    Sadly, in all likelihood not. Although generally my experience is the disposition can be picked up a few days after the court appearance (2 days) and generally you can get expedited treatment for a greater fee... I've had transcripts turned over as quickly as 24hrs.

    Hope this helps. Good luck
    Make sure you get the court reporters contact information on that court date and let them knew you want an expedited transcript!

    Carlos’s Answer

    Yes. You very well may have a case. Nypd protocol requires specifically what must be done in searches... Ultimately as many accommodations as possible should be made to ensure same sex searches.

  • I had cosmetic surgery that went horrible wrong It landed me in the hospital for 2 weeks because I had a bad infection

    I had to have another surgery which left me disfigured and emotionally scarred. What can I do about this?

    Carlos’s Answer

    You may potentially have a medical malpractice claim if the doctors performance was substantially below the standard of such doctors.

    You should consult with a local attorney as soon as possible, most attorneys do not charge up front fees on such cases... Our office generally handles such cases in a contingency fee basis meaning we only collect fees if we win you money, I believe virtually every attorney handling such cases however would work under a similar billing plan so you should begin contacting attorneys immediately to discuss your options.
