    You should have him contact his attorney ASAP so they can arrange to voluntarily surrender himself. The court will not be happy if he has not done any of his community service hours. Technically he could be resentenced and subject to additional penalties. Contact your attorney asap.

    If it is still pending as a misdemeanor and they have not file Bailjumping charges- he should be able to resolve the matter with counsel. It was very foolish to run. His can still needs to be evaluated by an attorney for defenses. If he's never been in trouble and he has an explanation for his absence - he should fair ok - depends on the DA. If he has a record - he will be doing some jail time.

    Your questions requires the review of the divorce agreement, and/or custody agreement if you proceeded in family court first. You state you have joint custody but one person may have final decision making. If that is you then you can decide on where the child goes to school after consultation. If your agreement is silent as to decisions then you may need to go back to court to determine the situation. You should probably meet/consult with an attorney in your area to determine your...

    As the other attorneys have posted the max is one year. However, if you have never been in trouble before with the help of an experienced criminal law attorney, you will more likely than not will be able to get a non criminal disposition. Do not plead guilty to anything - you need an attorney! Feel free to contact me if you have any particular questions about the Clarkstown Court if that's where you were charged. I appear there every week and used to be the ADA there, so if you want to...

    The people have six months to investigate a felony and make their decision on whether to indict or reduce the charge. However as stated in another post- your attorney may be waiving your 30.30 time (Also known as speedy trial time) in order to get the DA to reconsider your case and not rush to indictment. If your attorney has not been waiving your speedy trial time and the people are beyond their six months, then your case is ripe for a motion to dismiss. However a written motion must be...

    I agree with most of the other posts. However, my real concern - given what appears to be a very bright future - is your mention of a fake id which precipitated the argument w/ the bouncer. If it was taken good- if not you run the serious risk of a felony charge if you are found with the fake/forged id on your person. The discon is a relatively easy charge which more likely than not result in an ACD. You will probably need an attorney though as they may not offer the dispo without one. You...

    Yes you can be charged for anything that another person swears to under the penalty of perjury. A boy claiming you have or stole his clothes - not the case of the century but I've seen similar cases prosecuted. Whether the police will force you to appear is another issue!

    Your post lacks pertinent information - have you been arrested or contacted by the authorities? Is the person you sold the dog to accusing you or demanding their money back or have you actually been charged? You should speak with an attorney to get a better understanding of your rights to best protect yourself. Speak only to an attorney then proceed accordingly - informed.
