If it's not immigration, it sounds like he has a hold on him for a separate criminal case, but I can't be sure without searching the clerks websites and potentially viewing the court file. If it has to do with a different criminal episode, a criminal defense attorney may be able to help.
Sounds like the case is going to be very difficult to prove. Your ex needs an attorney to defend the case aggressively. That attorney may want you to write a declination of prosecution in order to help the attorney in his/her quest to get the case dismissed before trial.
You may have committed a misdemeanor battery. The proper jurisdiction where the restaurant is located. Do not speak to any law enforcement, you will very likely only make things worse for your self. If the police charge the crime, they may choose to get an arrest warrant or more likely, they will file an "at large" with the state attorney's office.
You should consult and retain a lawyer. If you have any questions, feel free to give my office a call.
If they don't have probable cause to believe that you are actively hiding your BF then they cannot get a warrant to arrest you based on that. They were probably trying to scare you. If they have PC to believe you have committed a separate crime, they could get a warrant for that. Speak to an attorney if you are concerned.
It depends on the level of injuries. Attempted murder is difficult to prove. Unless the injuries were very severe, that would probably be an over charge. More likely aggravated battery serious bodily injury or felony battery. Both serious charges that could result in prison.
Most judges will consider a petition to seal/expunge as long as the case is over and there are no fees owed (meaning not on probation either).
There are out of pocket costs of about $145, and most attorneys charge between 500 - 1500. I would be happy to quote you a specify price if you choose to contact me.
I think whether or not they had a right to do what they did will depend on lots of individual facts and there still may be arguments both ways. Why were the firefighters behind you in the first place, what did they observe as far as a driving pattern, when they approached your vehicle, did they see something to make them concerned for your safety or the safety of others, etc?
This may be the type of case were a motion to suppress the stop is appropriate. I recommend setting up consultations...
Attorney Waggoner is correct. Your confession to a crime isn't enough, they still need other evidence, which they probably don't have. That being said, you shouldn't have admitted anything to the cops.
The cops don't decide who gets charged with a crime, the state attorney's office does. If they get some other evidence (admission from the "message therapist") you could be charged. You probably wont though. Likely, these law enforcement officers are going to build a case and then send in an...
Not necessarily. It will be up to the judge anyway. This will be just one more factor for the judge to consider. As soon as 1/2 of the probation is up, you should have a motion for early termination filed. Using an attorney will get the motion through and set for a hearing faster.
When a private security guard detains someone without any basis and without witnessing a crime, they are subject to a civil action of false arrest.
As indicated by the other attorneys, your brother first needs to make sure his criminal case gets dismissed, then he can evaluate his options against the private security. Right now it sounds like you assume this was a mistake / misunderstanding, but an attorney is going to have to evaluate the police report and any written statements in order...
