    Don't pay them. I advise my clients to not pay and I contact them to desist. I have never had them actually institute an action against any of my clients thus far. Good luck.

    You will get through this but it will take some time. You absolutely need an attorney whether it is private or public defender. You need to protect your record and limit your exposure to compounding your problems by saying the wrong thing in court if unrepresented. Where was the arrest was it in Rockland - if so message me or call 845-290-2492 I can give you an idea of what to expect in the particular court you were charged in. Alternatively call the Rockland Bar Association (if it was...

    Report the rape. You got your proof although not recommended and can be viewed as suspect. Contact the police. Get medical attention and the help you will need for going through such a traumatic event. Don't allow him to continue to victimize you. Best of luck.

    You can hire an attorney and hopefully you will be able to reach a disposition without your parents knowing. The overall charge is not that serious. The Court may however make a bigger deal of this as they will want to make sure that you are on the right track. If you would like to discuss the case, you can contact the Rockland Bar Association or apply for the services of the Public Defender. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU!!!

    Sounds like a forcible touching charge or sexual misconduct depending where the victim was touched and age is a consideration as well. More facts are needed - were the police called? Feel free to contact me at 845-290-2492 if you want to discuss in more detail.

    The DA needs to indict or hold a preliminary hearing on a felony matter within 120 or 144 hours if a weekend comes into play. Misdemeanors can be held longer if the accusatory is sufficient, but reasonable must be set. I presume you are referring to the felony. If the defendant or his attorney waived the preliminary hearing or indictment then he/she could be held until disposition but the attorney can request reasonable bail. If the person has the appearance of two or more felonies then...

    That is ridiculous was they are trying to do to you. If you didn't buy anything you committed no crime and when they searched you they didn't find anything, so what would they charge you with? Possibly a traffic infraction but they shouldn't charge you with anything- I wonder if they even had probable cause to stop your vehicle in the first place but that is very fact specific. If they persist I would consult with an attorney and let the attorney warn them to stop harassing you. Was this a...

    Your maximum amount of time as a Felony plea is reduced to an E Felony for a YO is 1-1/3 to 4. It would depend on what was causing your violations and the specifics....you may be able to negotiate something wherein they would allow you to get into a program if its substance abuse related. Being that you already had two violations what is causing your license to be continued to be suspended, is it alcohol related? Is your PO refusing to allow you to get your license? Was there any...

    You need a criminal defense attorney immediately to start doing damage control. It really depends on your probation officer and their office policy on whether or not they will violate you for this new arrest. Some offices wait till you actually have a conviction while other offices file a violation of probation merely upon a rest. Hopefully you have not violated any of the other conditions of your probation and this is not the last straw for your probation officer whose monitoring you. If...
