    Only you can know if you want to go to trial. You have a right to competent legal counsel. If the PD is not doing the job, contact him have a sit down and if you are still unhappy ask for conflict counsel to be assigned. As for the proof, I have no idea what other proof the prosecutor has but if there is no other physical evidence, and if the only witness is mentally ill and unfit to testify or at least is attackable on the stand, then I would think you have a chance. That said, only you...

    You are not going to like this but you ARE at fault. (That is not to say that the other unnamed driver didn't cause the accident) You have a responsibility to stay far enough behind the car in front of you that you can come to a stop without hitting her if she stops dead in her tracks. A safe way to measure this time is to count 2 Mississippi (assuming you are going no more than 55mph in a regular size car). If you are going faster or are in a bigger vehicle (or both) you have to add a couple...

    Actually it seems like he has an issue and you are letting him make it yours. Okay the law of defamation requires that 1. He be telling a lie, 2. that you have somehow been harmed by this lie and 3. you deserve damages for the harm. It is an affirmative defense that he is telling the truth. SO what do we have? Well we have a lunatic trying to get you to take a DNA test for only God knows why, we have you not wanting to take the test (and you are perfectly within your rights not to take...

    Start by calling the prison and asking what the problem is. Be polite. No matter what you find out STAY POLITE. If you do not fix the snag with that call, contact the State DIvision of prisons or Dept of corrections. If they give you a run around or stall you, call the best civil rights lawyer you can find and ask them to become involved. DOn't forget to ask for help from your state's NACDL Affiliate as well. Money helps but even if you are poor, contact the closest law school and see if...

    YOu do not need to have a traffic lawyer represent you however it does increase your chances of winning. As for showing how far you were dragged, you can testify to it. Your pictures can come in as evidence too. Your insurance company may have pictures of the other car, ask for copies. Finally, if you need more time, ask for it. The judge will give you time to either get the photos or an attorney or both if you haven't abused the adjournment process and if you are polite about it. if you...

    You ought to be worried. She does in fact have proof. The texts themselves. The statute calls what you did "Criminal Threats." The case could be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. If the misdemeanor is charged you are facing up to a year in jail. If the Felony is charged you face up to four years. You must see a criminal defense attorney right away. The statute doesn't care if you intended to carry out the threat. If you want to see why I think you need to speak to a lawyer right...

    The best way to have handled this would have been to have the person's lawyer negotiate a deal PRE-Plead so that you would have a sure thing now. Usually cops cannot bind a DA's hands. Judges also do not have to go along with the DA's recommendation. Hence by spilling his guts to Police without the help of a competent experienced Criminal Trial Lawyer, the defendant herein has really opened himself up without a safety net. With that said, if his testimony will be necessary to back up what he...

    First, Petite larceny charges are often dismissed when the amount taken is under a certain dollar value and where it is a first offense. Hence you should get a lawyer to make sure you get the best plea bargain available. Keeping a clean record should be your first concern. As for your daughter, it is also unlikely she will be taken from you over a first offense. That doesn't mean you won't be visited by the Division of Child and Family Services, but placement is not a first option and I...

    Usually you will be arrested at the point of your return. US Customs gets computer "hits" when someone is wanted. You can expect to be detained at your port of entry. Your best action are as follows: 1. If you have yet to leave the country, clean up the warrant. Find a lawyer and take care of this misdemeanor. 2. If you are already out of the country, hire an attorney to attempt to get the warrant pulled and and answered. Answering does not mean pleading guilty, it means entering a plea of...
