    Maybe Yes, maybe No. The admissibility of texts and other conversations with the complaining witness in a pending criminal case is determined by the application of local law as interpreted by the judge. Your Local criminal defense lawyer is in the best position to request that certain "converstions" be they live or electronic be excluded.

  • Power of attorney questions

    Can someone that has power of attorney over a person on parole speak with that pesons parole officer in time of trouble to avoid a parole violation?

    Raymond’s Answer

    A power of attorney does not permit the type of communication authority that your question outlines. Attorney representation would provide the attorney limited authority to speak in the person's behalf. Of course, a licensed local attorney is a prerequisite to representation. Consult and retain an experienced local criminal defense attorney ASAP.
