    Anything is possible but a lawyer cannot properly assess your options based upon this limited version of the events. Your best hope would be to hire the best lawyer you can afford to defend you. It sounds like you may have a suppression argument that can be explored but you need a good, fearless lawyer to determine the best course of action. Avvo is an excellent place to start your search for a 10.0 rated criminal defense lawyer.

  2. Can the court or prosecutor change a plea deal after it has been agreed to by the defendant , and should it be in writing ?

    I agree with Mr. Hilf. If the plea offer was placed on the record, it is as good as if it were in writing. If the court will not honor the deal, you will be permitted to withdraw your plea. If the prosecutor wants to revoke the deal, you can ask the court to enforce it. Best of luck!

    A misdemeanor for violating a restricted license is a criminal offense punishable by up to 93 days in jail. If the case was dismissed and you never entered any type of guilty or no contest plea, it should not impact your immigration status. You can get a certified copy of the dismissal from the court. I recommend you post your question under the immigration topic so that lawyers who practice immigration can discuss this topic for you. Ultimately, your immigration status is very important...

    I would recommend you hire a criminal defense lawyer to get a copy of your criminal history and advise you regarding what you were convicted of and determine if some type of error has been made. If your CCH shows incorrectly that you were convicted of a felony, there should be an easy fix. If you were misled and you were unwittingly convicted of a felony based upon misinformation, you need to get that fixed as well. The best way to start would be to talk with a lawyer about your situation.

    If you court, a warrant for your arrest will be issued and any bond will be forfeited. When your arrested on the warrant, bond may be denied or may be much higher than it was originally set. A no contact order would be violated if the defendant or someone on that person's behalf has direct or indirect contact with the alleged victim by any means whatsoever. Rather then not showing up, the defendants lawyer can probably just requested an adjournment. If there is an issue with the no contact...

    Court appointed attorneys are generally reserved for people who cannot afford private or retained attorneys. However, public defenders have very little time and resources to work on your case and result in less justice, according to research done by the Justice Policy Institute. The court appointment system has been found to be highly deficient in Michigan with many court appointed lawyers being so overloaded by cases that, despite their best efforts, they are unable to provide effective...

    The definition of "operating" relative to and OWI charge is very broad. Although this may over-simplify things, basically the definition includes any time the operator of the car is exercising dominion and control of the vehicle. This being said, I have not analyzed the facts of your case and it is possible you have a valid defense. The first and only thing you should do, is hire the best OWI lawyer you can. A great lawyer will be able to analyze your facts and circumstances and develop any...

    I've handled many of these cases and the type of error in the system you are reporting is more common than you may thing. Unfortunately, judges in Oakland County have a reputation for just assuming defendant's are guilty of violation of probation before the facts are properly and fairly litigated. What judge is your husband's case assigned to? The judge in Oakland County can make a big difference as some are more pragmatic than others. With proper preparation and an aggressive defense, a...
