    Read list of standard conditions of bond that are on your copy of the bond. Also, read the special conditions of bond attachment to your bond, if any. The judge has the authority to expand the conditions of bond. Your attorney will need to notice a motion and perhaps a motion to advance the case on a date prior to your travel.

  • Is it illegal to date a 18 year old if their still in high school and your 20?

    I am 20

    Raymond’s Answer

    Local law in this case Wisconsin law governs the age of consent. I believe that 18 is past the age of consent, therefore it would not be an actionable sex crime for a 20 year old and an 18 year old to "date". Consult the local statutes and a local lawyer to confirm.

  • Grounds for a mistrial???

    My 9 year old daughter is accusing my husband of sexual abuse when she was 4. Since it's his right to face his accuser, would it be considered a mistrial if she does not get on the stand?

    Raymond’s Answer

    Confrontation of the accuser is a complex legal question that is governed by the application of the U.S. Constitution and local law(in this case Wisconsin) as interpreted and applied by the Judge. Complex questions require a complex analysis. Your concern and your question deserves the detailed analysis of an experienced local criminal defense lawyer.

  • Investigation of non suspect

    I have my sister-in-law with my brother who is being questioned but she is being held in a investigation room for no reason, isn't this illegal

    Raymond’s Answer

    Investigative methods although governed by local law and the U.S. Constitution are subjectively applied by law enforcement. It is not unusual or surprising that the local law enforcement authority violates the local law and the Constitution. Much later in the criminal justice process this violation may be used to protect the persons whose rights were violated. Consult a local experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect the persons rights.
