If you have a revocation withheld sentencing but dont have a schedule sentence yet but was sentenced on another case how long before you get transfered to prison
You will be scheduled for a sentencing hearing before the court that imposed the original probation disposition (or the Judge who now has that calendar). If you have an attorney, the date will depend on his or her calendar, and the Judge's calendar. If you don't have an attorney, you should contact either the state public defender or a private attorney to help you with this. Whether you are transferred to prison first depends on a number of factors, including the County, the current sentence and the date of the sentencing hearing.See question
I'm 17 and I stole merchandise under 90 dollars from Walmart. They got the merchandise back UNDAMAGED. My record is clean straight. This will be the first thing on there
This could be either a municipal citation, or a criminal charge (misdemeanor). Either way, it's probably a good idea to consult with an attorney (and your parents) to see how it can be handled with the least serious consequences. Deferred prosecution programs, "hold-opens," diversions - there are several ways to keep your record "clean," and an attorney who is familiar with the jurisdiction would be able to advise you on these.See question

It may be possible. Different city attorneys handle these things in different ways, and would take into consideration individual circumstances. You should seek legal assistance from an attorney who handles municipal citations.See question
Been searching through WI state statutes and I am trying to find the statute that states police have 72 hours to charge someone
There is no statute that requires charging in 72 hours, or within any specific time after an arrest. (As noted above, there are statutes of limitation on prosecutions). In Milwaukee, the prosecutor's office generally tries to make charging decisions within 72 hours; if they can't do this, they may release someone for a "charging conference" or other future review, but that's not set in stone. The Supreme Court says there must be a probable cause determination within 48 hours of someone's arrest, but this is a "paper" review by a court commissioner, who then sets bail if they find PC. These are complicated, fact- specific situations, and other factors may come into play, such as probation holds, commitments that might exist for unpaid tickets or court costs, etc.See question

With no prior record, you may well be able to obtain a favorable resolution to a situation like this. You should consult with and be prepared to hire an attorney to help you through it. You should do this before you have any further contact with law enforcement or the courts.See question

These can often be reduced- either in terms of points or the fine. You should consult an attorney from the area in which you received the citation. Often attorneys can do these without a court appearance necessary.See question

It depends on a number of facts that aren't in your question. Where you under arrest when the police searched? Had they already given you a citation? Had they already recovered stolen property? Where were the bags - in your hand or nearby? You should consult an attorney who can review all the facts, including any police reports and/or citations and other paperwork.See question

If it does not require a court appearance, it's likely a non-criminal ticket. Often these can be resolved with a "hold open," which ultimately results in dismissal if no new violations. You should check with a lawyer with local experience.See question
Theft of movable property <10,000 and remanded
If he's been convicted and remanded, that means he's facing sentencing next. If the case is just starting, there may be a bail hearing next. It's difficult to tell from your questions what stage the case is at. Your friend should needs to consult directly with an attorney.See question
