    Eugene’s Answer

    please be very careful. Judge Poole is new to the bench and you should get someone who knows him well and knows the system up there. I am happy to talk to you, please dont hesitate to call.

  • My daughter is an addict and stole my car.I had her arrested. Should I drop the charges or let her go to jail with a felony

    I signe d a paper saying I would prosecute. I would rather she be forced into a program

    Eugene’s Answer

    first, I am so sorry you are going through this. While tough love is sometimes a good thing, a felony conviction can ruin her life. Please consider taking directly to her attorney to decide what alternatives there are before she gets convicted of a felony. The State controls the filing decision and discretion. not you, so be sure you talk to her lawyer. Best of luck.

  • Can I turn myself in on a violation of probation ( VOP )

    I Have a violation of probation but so far there is no warrant for my arrest can I still turn myself in even though I know there is going to be a warrant and the VOP had already been submitted to the courts.

    Eugene’s Answer

    The jail is not going to accept you if there is not a warrant outstanding. I would highly suggest you get local counsel to see if they can stop the court from issuing a warrant and place your case on the calendar to try and stay out of jail. Best of luck.

    Eugene’s Answer

    You are going to have a difficult time going after the doctor. If the script was written properly, for a correct diagnosis, and she was informed on proper use, she most likely will not have a case. If she was taking her medication properly, then your lawyer will have a good defense to the criminal case. I would suggest you consult a personal injury lawyer in your area to confirm whether you have a claim.

  • What are the penalties for driving on suspended license?

    Three counts of driving on suspended license without knowledge and 1 count of driving on suspended license with knowledge. Also, expired tag.

    Eugene’s Answer

    I agree with Eric. Get with someone who can help you get your license valid. A conviction for this charge will quickly help lead you to a five year revocation with two other similar convictions. There are many fine lawyers in your area. Check with AVVO or email me for a referral.

  • How do I determine if I had Adjudication of Guilt Withheld?

    I entered a Pre-Trial Intervention program in 1989 and completed all requirements. My case was filed Nolle Prosequi. I believe I did not have Adjudication of Guilt Withheld since I was never found guilty, bt wanted to double check. Thank you.

    Eugene’s Answer

    Google clerk where it happened. Get number for misdemeanor division of clerk's office. call them. see if they can send you a disposition report, if one still exists. If you got a nol pros, then the charges were dropped. You can petition to seal/expunge if this is the only incident in your life. Call or email with any questions.
