    The answer, at least as it pertains to the criminal investigation and prosecution, is yes. As a general matter, when it comes to criminal charges, you are only protected from violations that have been perpetrated by the government and law enforcement. While you may be able to bring a civil suit for defamation against someone whose communication to a third party has brought you harm (such as a criminal charge), an accuser's decision to notify your employer will generally have no bearing on the...

    If it is just a ticket, and no criminal charges were filed, your should not have to appear. If you don't appear on a ordinance violation, generally the court will just enter a default judgment against you and find you guilty and order that you pay the fines. You should consult with a criminal defense lawyer in the area who will be able to advise you on how to best proceed. He or she may be able to appear on your behalf. You may get one or more of the citations dismissed and the fines...

    The answer is somewhat complicated. It could be both. However, given some recent USDOJ policy changes, it could also be charged without a mandatory minimum. Our office is currently handling such a case in the Eastern District. I recommend you consult with a criminal defense attorney well versed in defending federal cases rather than posting information that might be incriminating on the internet. Feel free to call our office any time.

    There are a variety of ways possession of an item can be established in court without the introduction of that item into evidence. Your question does not provide enough facts to comment specifically on this case (nor do I recommend you posting the facts online), but it does indicate that there was a gunshot wound, which would tend to suggest that someone had a gun. This is the type of question that is more appropriately directed at your attorney. If you are unsatisfied with the quality of...

    You may have a civil lawsuit against the school district for failing to provide the appropriate protection for your daughter and against the young men who were responsible for harming her. However, you likely have no recourse against the prosecutor or the police as they have varying levels of immunity. You should consult with a lawyer to explore possible civil remedies.

  6. What does the right to seek post conviction relief do when signed ?

    Not a whole lot. The Notice of Right to Seek Post Conviction Relief form is basically a safeguard for the courts to demonstrate that the defendant has been advised of all of his appellate rights. It is not a notice of appeal or notice of intent to seek post-conviction relief. It doesn't trigger any post conviction proceedings. Your trial attorney has the obligation of filing a Notice of Intent to Seek Post Conviction Relief for you, and it must be done within 20 days.

    Multiple charges from separate controlled buys can be included in the same complaint. There may be a basis to sever them if the joinder prejudices you in some way. I strongly encourage you to stop providing information about your case on the internet and consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer in the area. You may have some valid defenses to the charge, but those are topics that should discuss confidentially with an attorney. Feel free to call our office at your convenience.

  8. Can violation of a city ordinance be classified as "bail jumping" if you are out on bail?

    That is an interesting question. It depends on what the bail conditions were. Generally, it would not be a bail violation to receive an ordinance violation. However, judges can impose specific bail conditions, such as house arrest, no-contact orders with places or persons, no alcohol, etc., which if violated, can result in bail jumping charges. Given the variables, I recommend that your friend consult with a criminal defense attorney - probably the one who obtained a not guilty verdict on...

    She is facing revocation of her probation or extended supervision IF (it's a big if) she violated the rules of her supervision. The consequences may be severe, as they could result in the revocation of her probation. However, running from the agent/police and not turning herself in will, in all likelihood, result in much more severe consequences above and beyond those that may arise from the altercation with the boyfriend. She should contact a criminal defense attorney in the area who is...

    As a general matter, simply being charged with those offenses will have no bearing on your firearm rights, unless you are ordered as a condition of your bail not to possess firearms. Most of the answers above advise you that your right to a own a gun will be entirely unaffected by a conviction for these misdemeanor offenses. Though not a violation of Wisconsin law, it is a federal crime to possess a firearm as an unlawful user of controlled substances or drug addict. 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(3)....
