    That is strange. There would not be any reason to ask that in preparation for your defense. <shaking head> Good luck to you!

    Not at this point. He has to be arraigned and begin the circuit court process. I doubt the DA will drop the charges. He needs an attorney ASAP.

    Contact an attorney in Virginia. They would be able to know the specifics in that jurisdiction. That attorney should be able to assist you and possibly fight the ticket also. Us TN attorneys wouldn't be familiar with the procedures in Va. Unless they are licensed there also. Good luck to you.

    People are convicted on circumstantial evidence all the time. If they feel they have a case against you then they will go forward. If you are already at the edge of a trial, I strongly advice you to get an attorney immediately.

    It is hard to say. If you have more than one violation then expect to get jail time. It is common for DAs to ask for "language" which could put your entire sentence into effect. There are a lot of factors that would have to be looked at before you get a complete answer. I would definitely hire an attorney to help you sort this out.

    You do as long as the felonies are Class E and you don't have any other criminal history. With charges like these I suggest you get a criminal defense attorney ASAP.

    SSI generally is not paid to you once you are incarcerated. The following is from the Social Security website: We pay benefits under both the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs. Both of these programs prohibit payments to most prisoners. Social Security benefits are suspended if an otherwise eligible person is confined in a jail, prison, or other penal institution for more than 30 continuous days due to conviction of a crime. We cannot pay benefits to...

    Just the arrest is enough to violate your probation since I am sure that your previous plea/probation conditions included "good and lawful" behavior. I would contact your previous attorney or a new one of your choice ASAP!

  10. Is there a stature of limitation to appeal a denial?

    After a denial, you have 60 days to appeal to the next level. If an appeal was not done then she has to start completely over. She would have to meet some basic requirements but as long as she had worked more than 20 quarters paying into Social Security then that is a start. Sounds like she needs to have a consultation with an attorney that has experience handling Social Security cases.
