    An illegal immigrant charged with CSC 1st degree is looking at a potential penalty of up to life imprisonment. Depending on the age of the victim there can also be a mandatory minimum prison term which precludes probation. The fats of the case are important to know. If the arresting agency is aware of the illegal status they must notify "ICE" the Immigration authorities. At the time of the arraignment there will most likely be a immigration hold placed on the defendant. The defendant will...

    The police cannot force you to submit to a urine screen. They would have ot get a warrant and I don't think based on your facts a judge would issue a search warrant for blood or urine testing. However if you were already on probation and the probation department told you that you have to test than you are required to test or be in violation of your probation. Based on your facts the police cannot charge you with possession of marijuana.

    A disorderly ticket is a misdemeanor. Because the underlying charge invloves an "Offer to engage the services of a prostitute", there will be some problems with your green card status. A crime of this sort is looked at by INS as a crime involving Moral Turpitude and that is a potential ground for deportation. You must fight the charge, not simply take care of it. You have a good defense since you never discussed money or sex. This sounds like it was a sting operation and unfortunately you...

    Your admission to possessing child porn is not enough to charge you, but it may be enough to get a warrant to search your house for evidence of this crime. Simply showing them your computer is not going to make them forget about you.

    A second misdemeanor is not treated as a felony in Michigan. However a second misdemeanor of the same type can enhance penalties. Michigan law has recently changed allowing a person to expunge up to two misdemeanors. I encourage you to take advantage of this new law. Raymond Cassar

    You will most likely get arrested and processed, but you will also be treated much better if you turn yourself in rather than get picked up on the outstanding warrant. Turning yourself in may also allow you to get a personal bond, since the purpose of bond is to insure that you appear in court. It is best to have an attorney go with you. Raymond A. Cassar

  7. I got a summons for possesion of alcohol (consumption) in maine do i need a lawyer?

    Yes. A good criminal attorney can usually keep this offense off of your record, especially if you have no prior record. Most States have a first offender program that can be used to avoid this type of conviction. Rarely will a judge put you in jail on a first offense like this, but in the long run, this type of offense can cause you problems getting a job because it can be searched by prospective employers.
