    Appeals have very specific deadlines. Your attorney may have blown the deadline. Call them immediately to make sure that they have asked for an enlargement of time under the rules of appellate procedure 809.82. If they have blown the deadlines it still may be possible to get an enlargement of time or proceed under wis stats sec 974.06.

    Gregory’s Answer

    Hire an attorney right away. An attorney may be able to use the probation violation as an "up front" punishment as a way to convince the DA at a precharghing conference not to charge a battery or to pursue other charging or diversionary options. Karyn and Michael are correct in thier answers: get an attorney now.

  • What happens at a status confrence when you have other pending felony case

    iam being charge with a felony now i have a pending felony case

    Gregory’s Answer

    Karyn is correct. If you are facing any felony you really need an attorney! If you have one and you don't know what happens at a status confrence you need to talk to your attorney. If they can't or won't answer this question you may want to find a new attorney.
