    The best answer it to check with an Immigration Lawyer in your state either by calling the local bar association or on line by searching immigration Lawyers.Both the prior DUI's and the prior deportation will be substantial barriers to overcome.

    If your Nephew spoke to the law enforcement officials without an Attorney,he will likely have the gratitude of law enforcement,and a long prison sentence.If,however, his Attorney protected your Nephews best interest and made a deal for this information about the trigger man,then his sentence could range from probation(no jail) to a much lighter sentence.Turning states evidence means testifying in court,or being ready and willing to do so if the trigger man's case goes to trial. In any case all...

    Perhaps your referencing the minimum amount of the sentence required to be served upon conviction of certain felony crimes in this state? If so,then there is no legislative move to lower the amount of the sentence to be served from 85 down to 65 percent.

    Your answer requires a short definition of the difference in misdemeanor crimes(shoplifting) which can be enhanced(more punishment ) for committing the same crime in a specified time(like additional DUI's in five years),and committing additional FELONY crimes in your entire life,which can lead to three FELONY convictions causing a person to face life in prison as an habuitial offender. As you can tell from this explanation, shoplifting charges are misdemeanors and although you could face jail...

    The death of any relationship starts with the lack of communication. Did you and your Attorney have an initial meeting;did that meeting end with a written contract being signed by you both;did you pay him the stated fee;did you get both a copy of the contract,and a copy of your receipt of fee payment;and what meetings did you have with your Attorney to prepare for your day in court? In addition what law enforcement documents were provided to you by way of discovery,ie: officer reports,charging...

    Court costs often exceed the fine amount,and when you appear in court you will be provided a cost sheet of the actual costs by type and amount. When you are arrested you develop an arrest record at the local law enforcement facility (police department,sheriff's department,ect.)the Mississippi Crime Information Center,and The National Crime Information Center,and it's sometimes called your RAP SHEET. It usually contain's identification information(name address,social security information,ect.),...

    The State of Mississippi has a procedure to allow you to have your hunting rights restored on a county by county basis. Each county may have different procedures,and you should consult a criminal defense attorney in the county/counties where you wish to hunt.Good Luck

    No Attorney on this list can fully answer your question without much more information. You will continue to be angry at the legal system without consulting a Criminal Defense Attorney . Please contact the Mississippi Bar in Jackson for a referral to a Criminal Defense Attorney near you.Should you be unable to afford an Attorney,seek help from the public defenders office. Good Luck!

Please contact an Attorney today,most Attorney's will not charge for an first...
