    You need to consult with an immigration attorney in the country you are in to seek answers to these questions. I assume you are in Canada. We have several lawyers who practice immigration law on this site. I will defer to their responses.

    In general, the AUSA will have in his/her file copies of the DEA investigation of the case. Since you say "conspiracy" there will be more than one target of the investigation. The file can contain: police letters, photos, videos, phone records, evidence from survelience, your prior criminal record, wire taps, statements from informants, tips, confidential sources, physical drugs/contraband seized, statements from co-defendants, search warrants, affidavits, items seized, lab reports of drug...

    You need more than an attorney to file a motion for you. If you are charged with a serious felony like Armed Kidnapping, you need the best criminal defense attorney in your area that you can afford. Don't play around with this on a financial budget. Get counsel NOW!

    I am surprised at this post. I assume you have retained a competent criminal defense attorney to represent you. I assume you can afford a good lawyer, if you hired an accident scene reconstruction expert. These questions should be directed in private to your attorney in an attorney-client privileged setting. No lawyer on this site should second guess your attorney who is closer to the facts, the case law, the negotiations, the judge, the prosecutor, the history of the case, etc. The decision to...

    I agree with my fellow avvo criminal defense counsel. There are many qualified lawyers in the public and private sector. Interview some private attorneys in your area and draw your own conclusions if they can "do more things" vs. each other vs. the public defender. Good luck.

    You need a good criminal defense attorney to review you case and the case file. .16% is a high reading (if .08% is the legal presumption in CA). That breath test has to be compared with the blood toxicology. Your meds may contain alcohol as well. Get counsel.

    You need to hire a criminal defense attorney to review the file and advise the pros and cons of filing a motion to withdraw a former plea of guilty. Judges do not look favorably on such motions. You need a very good ground to file the motion. Good luck.
