  • My brother got arrested last night and his arraignment hearing is tuesday at 9am. What can I do to bail him out before then?

    I already went to Dakota County Jail to try and bail him out but they said I couldn't yet.

    Max’s Answer

    Hire an Atty asap, who will then try to get bail set over the phone, which may or may not happen depending upon the charges, the defendant's record, and the attitude of the judge

  • If I choose to leave my probation's therapy group, what happens to me and my sentence?

    It's a sex offender group therapy that I'm attending.

    Max’s Answer

    If you were required to attend sex offender treatment, you are likely on probation for a felony. If so, you could be sent ti Prison if you are found to have violated probation. If you were on probation for a Gross Misd., then you could get up to 1 year, minus time already served, if you are found to have violated probation. If you walk away from treatment, then you obviously violated.
