    Hearsay may be used in grand jury proceedings. The use of hearsay evidence in grand jury proceedings is a technique used by prosecutors to shield cooperators or witnesses from questioning before proceedings in the district court. The prosecutor can, for example, have an agent testify about who he spoke to and what he learned through an investigation, thus allowing the evidence to be presented to the grand jury without negative consequences.

    It is possible, yes. It becomes likelier if the offense is more severe. If, for example, you were arrested after an accident and refused breathalyzer and field sobriety tests, an officer is far more likely to obtain a court order than if you were simply pulled over.

  5. In Illinois I was the passenger in a car in where I could not get my seat belt on and the cop gave me the ticket.

    The driver and passenger of a vehicle are each responsible for wearing a seatbelt. If an officer sees you aren't wearing one, he can cite you for this. The offense in Illinois is a petty offense and carries a minor fine. Because you were only a passenger, it shouldn't impact your driving record.

    A lot depends on whether the charges are in NC Superior Court or federal court. From what you described, it sounds like he should direct this question to a lawyer in NC experienced with handling state cases. Please provide additional details.

    I would strongly advise you to consult with an Illinois attorney that specializes in post-conviction remedies. Depending on the procedural history of your case, there are many ways the petition can fall short of succeeding. An experienced attorney can guide you through the process and make sure the correct process is followed. I would be happy to discuss the case further with you.

  8. Can someone get a warrant for selling to an undercover cop & be charged with possession of cannabis WITHOUT ever being arrested?

    Police regularly seek a warrant after conducting an undercover narcotics purchase. This allows them to search a home, rather than merely a suspect following an arrest; as one of the other attorneys mentioned, it also allows them protect a source and maintain secrecy. Your sister needs to consult with an attorney as soon as possible.

    This likely means when he was initially arrested as a result of a criminal complaint or charged by information. There are two ways to initiate criminal proceedings in Illinois: (1) charging the defendant by information, which requires a preliminary hearing in the circuit court, or by indictment, which requires presenting evidence to a grand jury. To avoid presenting evidence at a preliminary hearing, the prosecutor instead went to a grand jury to formally charge your son.

    Due to the cost of defending a federal criminal case, it is unlikely you will find an attorney willing to take your case pro bono. I recommend speaking to the federal defender program in your area if you cannot afford an attorney.
