  • My son, who is out on bond already, was arrested again today. Can he still be released when he appears tomorrow?

    Last week he was arrested for possession and was released on a 10000$ bond. Today he was arrested for evading arrest, no drivers license, parking in a handicapped spot, and possession of drug paraphernalia (a weed pipe) Can he be bonded out again...

    Michael’s Answer

    It is possible, but I suspect bail will be extremely higher. I also suspect that the state will try to increase bail or revoke it on the other open matter.

    My colleagues have provided excellent answers. You could get lucky without an attorney, but why gamble (no pun intended)?

    When she was 16 she used a power of judgment for under age drinking. What happens in court?

    Michael’s Answer

    You need to hire an attorney immediately. There is a lot that needs to be known regarding this matter. There is an extremely large number of possibilities in regards to what can happen next. You need to sit with counsel because not only will there be consequences in terms of the authorities, this will be seriously detrimental when discussing future employment opportunities.

    You may be able to get your probation transferred. You need to speak to counsel regarding this. Many states do not like the idea of transferring probation, but they are often very accepting of it when it is work related. This is mainly because when it is due to work, it shows the person has a job and is trying to do the right things. That is what probation seeks to achieve.

    It may be too late, given the statute of limitations. Contact the local authorities to see what can be done. At the very least, you would want the school to know because even if it is too late to prosecute, protecting other students from these actions is important.

  • Can I lower my aggravated felony to anything lower?

    I was convicted of posession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver in 2009. I did get probation and have not been in any trouble since then. I was 22 when I did the crime and obviously now I regret it.

    Michael’s Answer

    You are likely too late to do anything regarding this. The matter would need to be looked at to say for certain, but it is almost certainly out of time.

    Michael’s Answer

    Hiring an attorney is the only prudent way to proceed. It appears that you do not know whether to hire counsel because you feel that you are not guilty of the offense charged. Many people that are not actually guilty have been find guilty of charges they did not commit. This is why counsel is important.

    Michael’s Answer

    The bigger question is what you would likely receive. if convicted. Much more would need to be known in order to discuss this intelligently, otherwise you will just be receiving speculation. You need to hire an attorney to discuss the situation in detail.
