    Joshua’s Answer

    It may be a violation of someone's probation or extended supervision to have contact with a person the probation officer has ordered them not to have contact with. That being said, just because he may have violated his rules does not mean that he should or will be revoked, especially for the amount of time you have indicated. A lawyer will help you and he navigate this process.

  • I was charged with a felony i body harm but was offered the deferred ageement because ive never been in trouble before.

    i been on my job 15 years. how will this affect my job or is there another route to go besides deferred agreement.

    Joshua’s Answer

    It depends on the parameters of the agreement. A deferred prosecution agreement may result in the outright dismissal of criminal charges. It may also result in a reduced charge. You should definitely consult with a lawyer in your area to explore your options and evaluate the pros and cons of pursuing a deferred prosecution agreement before entering into one, and make sure your lawyer knows about the possible ramifications on your employment.

    Joshua’s Answer

    It is a very good idea. These meetings are often the only opportunity for you to get your side of the story out, and an attorney can probably do that in a more effective and less damaging way than you. An attorney may be able convince the prosecutor at this meeting to refrain from issuing criminal charges or issue less serious charges than s/he was originally planning to bring.

  • Will I go to jail for possession of marijuana?

    So September 8th 2013 I got arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, cannabis, and underage drinking. The end result was that my drug paraphernalia charge was dropped, my possession of cannabis was bumped down to a disorderly conduct, and th...

    Joshua’s Answer

    Unless you've been previously convicted of a misdemeanor or felony drug offense, you will not have to worry about being charged with a felony. You may, however, be charged with the misdemeanor offense of marijuana possession. If you were to be convicted of that, you would be facing up to six months in jail and a year of probation. You could also have your driving privileges revoked and potentially find yourself ineligible for certain student loans. An experienced defense attorney can help you navigate this process and hopefully help you either avoid criminal charges or help you procure a favorable outcome. An attorney may also be able to assist you in establishing a defense or determining whether you constitutional rights have been violated.

    Joshua’s Answer

    There are a variety of options available to young people like yourself in the Milwaukee area who have been cited for possessing marijuana, many of which would result in either a dismissal of the citation or a reduction of the "charge" to something different and less alarming. I'd recommend contacting a criminal defense attorney in the area who has experience handling situations similar to yours. Feel free to contact our office.

  • For federal sentencing purposes, will 69g of 77% pure methamphetamine (containing 53.13g actual methamphetamine) be treated

    For federal sentencing purposes, will 69g of 77% mixture of methamphetamine (containing 53.13g actual methamphetamine) be treated as 50g+ actual methamphetamine (10 year mandatory sentence) or 50g+ mixed methamphetamine (5 year mandatory sentence)?

    Joshua’s Answer

    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.

    Joshua’s Answer

    I'd recommend you follow the advice of all of the lawyers who have answered all of your other questions and stop commenting about the facts of your case so publicly. These are questions to direct to your lawyer,with who. You have a confidential and privileged relationship.

    Joshua’s Answer

    What you are referring to is known as defamation, where a party intentionally or with reckless disregard of the truth, publishes false information that harms a person's reputation. You should consult with an attorney to determine whether it is possible that the newspaper has defamed you and what your options might be.

  • How can someone be charged with felon in possession of firearm if no gun was found?

    No gun was found. Just a gunshot wound to the wrist.

    Joshua’s Answer

    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 the response or the lawyer's unwillingness to respond, you should consider finding new representation.

  • Can a deferred prosecution agreement include expungement?

    I have been offered a DPA and want to know if it's possible to get the charges expunged too

    Joshua’s Answer

    Depending on the terms of the Deferred Prosecution Agreement, and if its successful completion results in a conviction for an expungeable offense, I see no reason why the agreement could not also call for expungement.
