  • What am I facing ?

    I have two open theft cases waiting. Each happened in the same county and the second one happened a month and a half after the first. I have court coming up for my first offense. I have no criminal record until these cases go through. Since I got ...

    Andrew’s Answer

    At your first court appearances for each case you will not receive any sentence, unless you voluntarily plea guilty. You should never do so without an attorney representing you, as there may be defenses to you case or other mitigating factors to be brought out in negotiations. It's likely the two prosecutors will know about the other case, so they may be seeking a harsher penalty (not likely maximum jail time, but possibly some jail time). It would certainly be in your best interest to retain an attorney. It may be possible to resolve these cases without them resulting in a conviction, which is very important because any theft conviction could make life tough and greatly limit future opportunities.

    Andrew’s Answer

    Sentences can vary greatly depending on many factors; anything from a fine to probation to jail. In your situation, the most important thing is to resolve the case without it resulting in a criminal conviction. This is possible and an attorney's representation can greatly increase your chances.

    I also caution you against posting specific facts of your case online. These posts are not protected and could possibly be used against at a later date. You should only discuss specifics with your attorney, as those conversations are strictly confidencial.

    I hope you find this information helpful and wish you the best of luck.

Retain an attorney to look at your case, as there might be possible defebses. Also, an attorney would be much more experienced in negotiating with the prosecutor.

    Andrew’s Answer

    Yes, there are several ways to fight a DWI. An experienced attorney can comb through every piece of evidence and possibly find reasons to have some evidence thrown out. Also, there are ways to negotiate this case to a non-DWI sanction. In addition, you also have the right to go to a jury trial and force the prosecution to meet their very high burden of proof. It would be in your best interest to at least speak with an attorney to find out what options you have.
