    While your fiancee has the absolute right to represent himself,his chances will be much better with a Criminal Defense Attorney. The appeal process is time sensitive,meaning that the rules which govern the Courts and Attorney's are very strict.Missing a date for submission of bonds,notices, briefs,and the like will cause the appeal to be lost by failure to follow procedures and the merits(facts) of the case will not be considered. As an example ,at the end of the case,and in order to protect...

    I am not quite sure of the term you used to describe the manner in which your DUI case in Texas was handled.I do understand that your blood was tested,and you were initially charged with a DWI(that is the way Texas charges for driving under the influence) pending results of your blood test results.Once these results were received the Prosecutor evaluated your case for trial,and with a blood test in your favor,decided to not prosecute this charge. I don't have any information about the initial...

    Your question mixes the charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon with the proof for conviction on that charge. A charge is not a conviction,and all anyone needs to charge someone with any crime is mere probable cause( a very low criminal standard).Stated another way,all someone needs to bring a charge is a pen that can write,and an affidavit form to write out the charge! Once this affidavit is sworn before the court the prosecution can begin. However,the criminal justice system...

    Much more information is needed to answer your question. As in your other questions posted here in different forms I get the impression that you are acting as your own Attorney.This action will simply leave you with more questions than answers,and a lot of frustration with the legal system. Attorneys spend years learning the Law and many more years practicing in courts to begin to understand how the legal system works. The very fact,as you state,that you are NOT locked up,goes to show that the...

    Other ways exist to allow you clean up your record.Governors pardons allow you to have your crime to be pardoned,and the House or the Senate members can sponsor a legislative bill to return your civil rights. Neither of these methods is quick or inexpensive. Contact legal counsel today.Good Luck!

    An arrest in Mississippi causes arrest records to be generated locally with the arresting agency,The Mississippi Crime Information Center,and The National Crime Information center. These records remain forever unless you hire a Criminal Defense Attorney with knowledge and success in this area of the law. Here your brother is the victim of incomplete work by his first attorney which caused a longer prison term for this current offense. An Attorney could possibly file to re-open the case to...

    The State of Mississippi has a two level court system.This means that you can appeal from your conviction based on your plea of guilty to a higher court and and start your trial all over as if the lower court finding of guilty did not exist. This appeal procedure must be started within thirty days from the date of conviction,or you will have the dui conviction on your record for life.The only other way to proceed is to move the court to set aside your conviction for good cause shown and to put...

    Tickets written by the Highway Patrol are tried in the Justice Court of ,in this case,Rankin County Mississippi.Take your ticket to your court date and when called to the bench show the prosecutor your valid license.Richard Wilson is the county Attorney,and he will probably dismiss the ticket.However,should you share your information about the officer's intent to ticket you with another offense,your ticket can be amended to show the correct charge,and the case will be prosecuted on the new...

    Generally all traffic tickets have court costs.Think of these court costs as an additional tax on the fines paid for traffic offenses.Courts have you pay fines which goes into the general fund of the city(city court)or county(county court)but the court costs can be for various local and state agencies which support the local court(like the county law library,the sheriff's jail fees,and the like) which are paid to the state to be distributed to these agencies.I know of no traffic charge which...
