    For your brother-in-law to get a complete answer, he is going to have to sit down with an attorney and go over his case. There are too many unknown factors any experienced attorney would have to consider in order to properly advise him on his options in this case. An attorney would need to review the evidence against him, would need to know the court, the judge and which prosecutor will be handling the case. There are ways to mitigate his situation, while, at the same time, build his defense.

  • My boyfriend was caught with a gun in his car and i want to know the possibilities he could have due to him never using the gun.

    My boyfriend has been a convicted felon when he was in a diffrent state and was young at the time and he's here in GA now

    Charles’s Answer

    Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is a serious offense. However, the punishment depends on the judge, the prosecutor and the factors offered by the defense attorney. I would consult with and hire an attorney immediately to give your boyfriend the best chance at a good result.

  • My name is Angelica my boyfriend is currently in prison for murder, he was convicted and sentenced to life w/o parole

    So my question is? Can he get a appeal and will I have to testify if I was there.

    Charles’s Answer

    If he was convicted, he is certainly entitled to an appeal. Does he have a lawyer? When was he convicted? Did he enter a plea or did he have a trial?

    He was convicted as a felon when he was like 15 or 16 and he just recently got arrested for having a firearm in his car .

    Charles’s Answer

    It is possible, but you need to contact and retain an attorney for him to get the best result on the case. There is no guarantee in the outcome of a criminal case, but an attorney always increases the chance for the best outcome.

  • How much time could a juvenile facing armed robbery being charged as an adult get?

    The detectives say the victim is not sure if a weapon was present, however the juvenile said that he did not have a weapon. Can his case be sent to juvenile court for a lesser charge if there was not weapon?

    Charles’s Answer

    If the case is sent to adult court, the juvenile could face anywhere from 10 to 20 years or life. This is a very serious case. You need to meet with and retain an attorney to defend the case. Has a court date been set?

    Charles’s Answer

    It certainly sounds like your grandson has issues that need to be explored. You need to speak with several criminal defense attorneys and hire the best one that you can afford and that you feel like you can trust. A lawyer is the only one who can advocate for your grandson, defend his case, deal with the prosecutor and advise him of his options. If you have the time, consult with several attorneys and make your decision. When was he arrested and does he have a court date?

    Would it be a wise decision If that person is bonded out of county A while county B has a hold on him/her? Should that person have an attorney first or get bonded out first?

    It sounds like you may need to get more information about the hold in order to know what the best course of action is in the case. Certainly, hiring an attorney to handle the charges would be a good decision.
