  • If i haven't been assigned a public defender yet does that mean i haven't been charged with anything yet?

    My friend was arrested 2 weeks ago along with one of his other friends, I noticed his friend has been assigned a public defender but he hasn't yet

    Robert’s Answer

    Depending on the charge, if your friend is found indigent (unable to afford an attorney) he/she will be appointed a PD at arraignment (when the state announces whether or not it is going to formally charge your friend).

  • How can a bail be discharged if case is still open

    can i be made to pay another bond and for what reason can bail be discharged

    Robert’s Answer

    Without more facts this is a difficult question to address - your bond can be returned upon a final disposition of your case. As for "another bond" should the state seek to file additional charges you could be required to post an additional bond. Seek the assistance of a criminal defense attorney in your case.

    Robert’s Answer

    Hire a competent attorney you can trust ASAP. While this is a relatively minor charge and the police have seemingly made an effort to explain it to you, only an attorney can truly aid your son in this situation.

    Hire a local ticket attorney. These seem beatable. I did not review your citation number, but a defense is that the ticket is facially incorrect (which appears to be what you are stating).

    Robert’s Answer

    It appears (from your second to last sentence) that there is a writing of some sort. If you have a contract the answer should be reflected there.

    Otherwise, contact an attorney to handle this matter on your behalf and guide you through your transition smoothly.

  • Will a pending felony charge show up on a current background Check?

    Felony and misdemeanor charges pending trial

    Robert’s Answer

    It depends on the background check. Who is doing it? Operate under the "better safe than sorry" presumption. I got fired from circuit city in high school because I failed to disclose a misdemeanor, don't be that guy (or girl). Hire a lawyer, address the case, put it behind you, be honest.

  • What does a motion to compel mean in a criminal case,especially for the accused in a criminal case?

    my friends incarcerated and his attorney filed for a motion to compel in a rape case where he is accused,is this a good step for the defendant?

    Robert’s Answer

    Likely discovery related. Often times (unfortunate and unbelievable as it may sound) the state is a little lax/lazy on handing over information. The lawyer is likely addressing that.
