    Robert’s Answer

    Have you asked your probation officer? Sort of that, contact your attorney to file a motion to modify your probation to permit drug testing of your blood as an alternative to urine. I doubt that your request will be denied.

    Robert’s Answer

    You need to hire an attorney to file a motion to vacate the warrant and go to court with all of your medical records together to show to the judge. The longer you wait, the less receptive the judge will be.

  • Does a writ of prohibition stay court proceedings?

    if a judge denies motion for recusal, does notifying him of intent to file writ of prohibition stays court proceedings?

    Robert’s Answer

    No. In order for the case to be stayed, the appellate court must issue a "show cause" order. Usually a judge against whom the motion for recusal was filed will grant a short, but reasonable amount of time (15-20 days) to file the writ and then continue the the case until the appellate court makes a decision on the request for the "show cause" order in the writ.

    Robert’s Answer

    The most widely acclaimed criminal defense attorney, Clarence Darrow would say, "an attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client." How much more so for a layman, regardless of scholarship? You're not seriously thinking of defending yourself, are you? That's a bad idea!

  • How long would you go to jail for killing someone who abused your friend?

    im writing a story and thats what they did

    Robert’s Answer

    If the State can prove that the killing was premeditated, then the death penalty could be imposed. It really depends on what the State can prove. We do not live in a vigilante society. People just can't go around taking the law into their own hands and meting out justice as they see it.

    Robert’s Answer

    These cases are governed by Strickland v. Washington. To obtain relief due to ineffective assistance of counsel, a criminal defendant must show that counsel's performance fell below an objective standard of reasonableness and that counsel's deficient performance gives rise to a reasonable probability that, if counsel had performed adequately, the result of the proceeding would have been different. If you think you have a meritorious claim, you ought to persue it. Not every criminal defense attorney knows how to do this work. So, as you know by now, choose carefully.

    Sure! I get cases like this all the time. The details of each differ, but generally speaking, you should be able to get this case dismissed and your record expunged.
