    You should talk with your lawyer personally to address your concerns and give you guidance. Hopefully you can get things ironed out. If not, you can release that lawyer to find a new one.

    While dental malpractice cases are uncommon, you can find a lawyer to help. They are like medical malpractice cases. You need to be heard, and find out if you have a case. Find a local lawyer or one nearby who can help you. Most injury law firms, including mine, charge no fee to discuss your case.

    Robert’s Answer

    You should go, to put your mind at ease and to be sure no one forgets the deal. If you're not in court for these type tickets, you usually get found automatically guilty. If you show up and they've forgotten, you can remind them. Worst case scenario, request a jury trial at that hearing and hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

  • Does confidential reliable informant have to give time and date they seen drugs for the police to get a search warrant

    Does a magistrate judge need date and time to determine if probable cause exist or is information stale

    Robert’s Answer

    You should hire an experienced drug defense lawyer to file discovery requests to get all the evidence the state has against you. The evidence should contain the approximate time and date. If not, it could be a basis to dismiss the case or strengthen your defense by weakening their case.

    Robert’s Answer

    You need an experienced criminal defense lawyer. You're facing a serious felony with years in prison. Your defense might be an alibi, which requires special notice to the state to protect it. You need a lawyer who can round up your witnesses, get their statements, put the state on notice, and develop other defenses. This is not the time to go it alone. The risk for you is way too high. It's like doing your own brain surgery. while the state has to prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, it can be done with the testimony of a single witness. The state has a lawyer. You need one too.

    Robert’s Answer

    Given your justified fears and complexity of your questions, you need to sit down with a criminal defense lawyer. Email is useful for small things, but it doesn't replace a face-to-face for big things. This is big. Most lawyers offer free consults.

  • Unlawfully carrying a pistol my charge-if I i can prove it was a bb gun does the same charge stand or cn i get a dismissal or

    lesser charge?

    Robert’s Answer

    i agree with the prior answer, but I'd add this: If you've still got the gun for some strange reason, keep it in a safe place so nothing happens to it. If the police confiscated it, it should remain available for inspection to verify it's a bb gun. If it disappears from police evidence, they likely have no case.

    Robert’s Answer

    Ask PTI to waive fees because you're indigent (honestly unable to pay). Even if they say no, it could open the door to ways to structure fees so you can afford it. Don't give up too fast before pleading guilty! These convictions can really hurt.
