Hello. Of course the most serious of the charges is the aggravated battery to a police officer which is a felony. Even though this is your first offense, there is always the possibility that you could receive jail time rather than probation. From your posting I cannot determine whether you waived a pre sentence investigation. Assuming that the State's Attorney did not introduce evidence of an injury to the police officer, there is a good chance that you will be sentenced to probation....
Hello. It's very unlikely that you would recovery any money for the damage. Walmart's attorneys would probably raise the defense that what happened was an act of god. There are a few other suggestions that we can offer.
Hello. In all likelihood, your license will be suspended by the Illinois Secretary of State. The Illinois Circuit Court proceedings and administrative proceedings before the Illinois Secretary of State are separate. You make reference to "they" in terms of where you received information about what would happen should you be sentenced to supervision. I strongly suggests that you hire a lawyer, if you have not already done so.
Hello. Any decision by the court will be based upon what it considers to be in the best interest of your grandson. The order establishing custody may have language that suggests a reasonable time for mom to return, however if it does not, your son should seek an attorney to discuss the pros and cons of moving forward with a motion for change of physical custody. If there is a warrant for mom, moving sooner than later may be the best option.
Hello. If the girlfriend files a police report and the State's Attorney's office gets involved, that office might file a domestic battery charge for the girlfriend. I don't see an aggravated battery charge, assuming the girlfriend says what you are saying in your post. There are additional suggestions and advice that I can give.
Hello. Yes, under these circumstances you should immediately seek sole custody. Once your ex husband is released, he will be required to register as a sex offender, based upon the information that you have provided. As a sex offender, he may not be allowed visitation with your children for some time, or any visitation will be very restricted. You should hire an attorney and proceed accordingly. In Illinois, courts are required to make decisions based upon what is in the best interest of...
Hello. It is quite probable that the Office of the State's Attorney will file a petition to have you sentenced for violation of court supervision. Of course you will now have to deal with the new shoplifting charge. You also run the risk of being deported. Will be happy to discuss your situation further and in more detail. In your post you did not say whether you have received any court notices. If you get any paperwork from court, contact your attorney, or retain an attorney immediately.
Hello. I strongly suggests that you report the accident to your insurance company. Even though the other driver admits fault, you could still be sued. Act quickly and you should hire an attorney. I will be happy to discuss this further and in more detail. There are additional suggestions that I can make.
Hello. You can file a counterclaim, but I strongly suggests that you hire an attorney, if you have not already done so. Litigation must be carefully planned and executed, otherwise you could have real problems in court. Will be happy to discuss this further and in more detail.
