  1. If I was sentence to 21 months then ferload to treatment for 144 days. Do I get credit for the time I spent in treatment?

    The answer is that it depends. Often a furlough is to an unsecured local treatment facility, and if that is the case you don not have a right to credit. A judge may still grant you credit, but you are not entitled to it, and such a grant is uncommon. On the other hand, if your were at a secured facility, such as AMRTC, it will count as in custody time and youw ill get credit. On a 21 month sentence you would ordinarily serve 14 months in custody, and 7 months on supervised release. So...

    There are a few more facts that would be important to discussing possible outcomes for this matter. I would want to know the severity of the DWI, the length of probation, and the supervising county. Outcomes and approaches vary widely from one County to the next. The simple answer is that you can get jail, but it is not at all necessary that you do. You have a right to be represented in proceedings like this one and the best course of action is to consult with a lawyer. Like many on...

    It is possible that thte record is still visible, but depending upon the nature of the resolution, it may not show as a criminal offense, or may not show at all. Most lawyers have access to various computer systems to check this out and advise you on possible expungement if it is still there. I give a free consultation, as do most of the lawyers here on AVVO. The only way to be sure is to check it out.

  4. Felony extridation?

    If it is a felony charge they are more likely to come and get you. If you are arrested on the warrant, the local law enforcement agency will contact the agency listed on the warrant, likely the prosecutor, and ask if they plan to extradite. If the agency says no, they will release you, if they say yes, you will be held, and then transported, often at your own risk. You can find out how much if any bond is placed on the warrant and post bond, then get a court date. If it is a felony, you...

  5. Is there anything you can do if a prosecutor does not file charges against a person for a crime?

    The ultimate charging decision is up to the prosecutor, if you really want to see this individual charged, I suppose that you could write a letter to the prosecutor, asking them to review it. Just because charges have not yet been filed, does not mean they will never be filed. The prosecutor has several years to make that decision before the statute of lilmitations runs. They may be awaiting further investigation.

    It is hard to answer this question without knowing what the charge is. If your record is clean, and depending on the nature of the charge, you may very well qualify for diversion. But, without more information, the only thing I can do is tell you to get a lawyer. If you cannot afford a private defense attorney, you should apply for a public defender. Most lawyers here on AVVO offer a free consultation as do I. It is important to handle this case properly. Even though it is only a...

    Timing is critical here, because both sides of the case must be challenged to get the best result. The civil side of the case, often called the "implied consent" or IC case, has to do with challenging the revocation of your license. In order to fight that side, you must file a proper motion within 30 days of the revocation. In both the criminal and civil sides of the case, the state has to prove the essential facts at a hearing. There are rules that would make it very difficult for the...

  8. I'm almost certain my husband is embezzling funds from a company he works for, and am worried if that'll incriminate me also.

    You need to talk to a Minnesota defense attorney. The most important thing to evaluate is how much liability you may have, and how connected you may be to the fraud. In white collar cases it is sometimes advantageous to come forward early and position yourself as a witness, rather than as an accomplice. But you should talk to an experience attorney practicing in MInnesota. Most lawyers on AVVO offer a free consultation, as do I.

  9. How do I get a no contact order dropped? And long can it last?

    You do not have any direct ability to have the NCO dropped. Generally, when a Court looks at these requests, it wants to know that you have no further safety concerns, and that there is little chance of you being hurt further. You can simply continue to ask to have it dropped. In most jurisdictions there is a victim’s advocate service, whose chief function is to deliver your input and wishes to the Court. In addition, many prosecutors have a similar staff member in their office. You can...

    In Minnesota, there is a local ordinance on the books in almost every small town that is entitled "Pawning Property of Another". The statute itself was drafted by the League of Minnesota Cities and adopted almost everywhere there is a pawn shop. It has detailed requirements for signs that warn people not to pawn other people's property, even with permission. There are also other requirements that mandate such warnings on the pawn agreement. If all those requirements are met, the ordinance...
