    Sounds like the clerk screwed up. Work it out with the clerk so that you won't get nailed with a reinstatement fee.

  • I was arrested,unbeknownst to me that a warrant was issued,I was not given any notice until the officers came to my door to.

    I thought I would have been given some kind knowledge to what I had been charged with, do I have any rights in this matter?

    Jason’s Answer

    People do not have the right to know about a warrant being requested. Once a warrant is signed, it is to be served upon the defendant immediately or at a reasonable time if their location is unknown. The serving of the warrant is notice and triggers your Constitutional rights and due process, such as the right to a timely hearing, bond and counsel.

    Jason’s Answer

    Police reports are hearsay. But that doesn't mean they can't be used for impeachment or other purposes.

    Couple of things: did you report it stolen or lost? If not, why not?

    Second, be advised that a hearing with your school does not require that they read you your rights. However, do not think for a second that your statements won't be available to law enforcement. They will.

    Most likely they are alleging that you permitted another to use your ID to purchase something or get into somewhere. That is illegal for both the lender and the user of the ID.

    Jason’s Answer

    Statutes require a trial within 30 days for incarcerated individuals charged with an M1 and 90 days for those charged with a felony. The issue is going to be how long does the court and prosecutor keep someone in jail at their expense knowing that there is little to no evidence left to prosecute him. Most likely that answer will depend on how long the Judge wants to "penalize" him for being AWAL.

  • What would happen if i go to court for shoplifting

    I took 50.00

    Jason’s Answer

    I had to laugh at Chase Carter's response. Good advice. Putting an admission online is never good. And it is permanent, by the way.

    Theft is punishable by up to 180 days jail and $1000 fine plus costs. Plus you could be ordered to pay restitution for the $50. Could carry probation, community service and terms. In certain counties, all shoplifters go to jail for at least a weekend.

  • I filed a police report for D.V. but they didn't press charges and I am trying to get a c.p.o. should I press charges??

    called police from hotel after being hit, choked, threatened and ran for my life. Medic came first and I had chest contusions, shoulder strain, back contusions.

    Jason’s Answer

    I disagree with Attorney Wigell's answer. You have already "pressed" charges by calling the police to begin with. It is in their hands at this point. Whether you continue to support the charges is up to you (i.e. writing a statement, oral statement). What happens now is up to the prosecutor, court and/or officer.

    In regards to the CPO, that is a civil matter in another court. You can utilize the prosecutor's victim advocates to assist you or you can fill out the forms on your own.

  • Child endangering / abuse, awdw weapon charge first ofense , no wittnesses to testify, how much jail time or probation ,

    never been convicted of any crimes

    Jason’s Answer

    Can't properly answer this question without more information. It depends on the level of the offense first of all. Each court and judge are different, so that depends. But if no witnesses show to a trial, then I suppose it doesn't matter because the State has the burden of proof. But if there are no witnesses, then why are you asking about jail time and probation?!?

    I was arrested and sent to jail for misdemeanor charges in Euclid, OH. They do not have a city jail just a holding cell. I was there for two days and had to ask several times to eat. After the two days i was finally sent to Solon city jail where t...

    Jason’s Answer

    You can be held in a holding cell or any other form of incarceration for two days. The only issue referenced above is whether that cell and conditions are considered unreasonable. If there aren't the most basic elements of care met, then a suit could be filed.

    Jason’s Answer

    All juvenile charges are considered delinquency. They can all result in detention, curfew, community service, drug testing, drug treatment/drug court, probation, fines, costs and loss of license. Technically, it is a minor misdemeanor though, assuming it was marijuana paraph.
