    Joshua’s Answer

    There's not enough info provided to tell you what the likely outcome would be. Factors would be criminal history of you and your friend, location in the car of the marijuana, how and why you were pulled over, etc. Consult with a lawyer who offers free consultations to discuss in more detail.

    Joshua’s Answer

    Hire an attorney, if you don't have one. The DA will be required to provide your attorney with a copy of the statement made by the co-defendant. Review it, find inconsistencies, and use this information to convince the DA that co-defendant would be a bad witness.

    Joshua’s Answer

    You can get a temporary restraining order (aka TRO or TPO), but will have to prove at the hearing that he's committed a crime. In my opinion, he's committed no crime. Filing a TRO will let him know you're serious and won't be bullied around.

  • Will the judge dismiss my citation and will I have time to pay my fees if they do not?

    I received a disorderly conduct charge for fighting at school. it resulted in a $470 citation or court. my school has dismissed the charges and stated that they do not find me in violation of behavior conduct, disorderly conduct and fighting, if I...

    Joshua’s Answer

    It sounds like you have two separate issues going on. There is a criminal case, to which you have pled guilty (presumably), and an administrative case within your school. These are two completely different proceedings that generally have little effect on each other. The school declining to go forward with punishment has no bearing on your criminal case, especially since it appears you've already pled guilty and agreed to pay a fine.

    Joshua’s Answer

    Most states don't extradite for misdemeanors. However, It's not a good idea to have a warrant for violating probation hanging over you. Hire an attorney to negotiate for you or apply for a Public defender.

    I had to charges that are the same but one was in one county and one an another. I was sentenced under the FOA for the first charge and the judge order both cases run concurrent to each other. When my probation is terminated does the FOA cover jus...

    Joshua’s Answer

    It's up to each Judge as to whether you get FOA on both. That being said, it's unusual for a judge to allow FOA on 2 cases in separate jurisdictions. Do you remember going over the FOA rights in each plea?
