    If you are concerned with the person pressing charges consider ceasing all Internet communication with him/her. Please consider a few random thoughts on Internet communication. The Internet is not a private but rather is a public forum. Verification of who you are communicating with on the Internet is impossible. If a communication sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

    Asking, "Is the charge valid?", is not an easy question. I suggest that a better question is, "What can be done to protect your rights as charged?" This is yet another example that what appears to be a relatively simple question is not simple to answer unless ALL the facts and an actual (not a paraphrasing) review of the court record is conducted by an experienced federal criminal defense attorney. The first part of a complete analysts is reviewing the government's investigation....

    Whether he was charged with felonies or misdemeanors will determine the sentencing range available to the judge. Misdemeanors are punishable up to one year, 364 days in county jail. Felonies are punishable to one year or more in the Illinois Department of Corrections, IDOC. The charges may also be probationable. Many other factors must be considered to answer your question with an answer it deserves. Consult and retain an experienced criminal defense attorney ASAP.

    Discovery is an essential part of case analysis. Without an understanding of all the nuances of discovery and application to your specific case your attorney can not advise you of your options and strategies. I suggest you seek a second opinion ASAP.

    The question is a good one. The answer is not simple. Criminsl Trials are a complicated endeavor based on layers of complex rules and procedures. Add to this the vagaries of what a witness testifies to as compared to what is suggested in police reports. It should come as no surprise that Police reports are sometimes based more in what the reporter wants to be reported than in the reality of the situation. Factor in the skill of the defense lawyer, the social and political environment the...

    A default judgement may be entered against the defendant for failure to appear. Consult and retain an experienced defense attorney ASAP to determine your available options. If you can not afford an attorney contact the clerk of the court to determine what occurred. Determine the next court date and show up so that you can explain your circumstances to the judge.
