    You need to speak to an attorney regarding this situation. The case will likely involve more factors than just the condom. The prosecutor will likely rely on more evidence than just that point. The exchange of money and the method of meeting may be factors. It is important to review the police reports and your recollection of the events with your attorney so that you may make a decision on the strength of the case and how you wish to proceed.

    While the information that you have provided is vague, I would assume he is at the residential center in Johnson County. If he failed to return from the residential center on a pass, then the residential center will contact the District Attorney's Office and a new charge of aggravated escape or escape (depending on the conviction that placed him at the center) may be filed. The new charge could have significant implications. He should speak to an attorney immediately to discuss this matter with...

    Misdemeanor battery is a class b person misdemeanor. The sentence shall be a definite term of confinement in the county jail which shall be fixed by the court and shall not exceed six months. The maximum fine is $1,000. In most cases, the Court will grant a probation rather than confinement. Certainly, the attorneys in this matter will have specific and detailed advice on the potential sentence given his specific history. I would suggest asking the attorneys involved in this case.

  4. Will my shoplifting charge be a felony?

    To determine if a theft will be classified as a misdemeanor or a felony requires an analysis of the specific facts of your case. Generally, theft of property with a value of less than a $1000 is a class A misdemeanor, but exceptions apply. If the theft is from 3 separate mercantile establishments with in a period of 72 hours as part of the same act, then it is a felony regardless of the amount (usually a theft from multiple stores in a mall). If you have been convicted of theft 2 or more...

  5. Good time credit/early prison release.

    I would direct these questions to his attorney as his attorney would have specific facts of the case, his history, and the knowledge from his sentencing. His attorney would be able to give you a specific answer to this question, rather than a general answer. It would be best to contact his attorney. Beyond that, generally the Court loses jurisidiction to modify a sentence on a felony after sentence is pronounced. Therefore, if your boyfriend was sentenced to prison then the Court would...

  6. Filing a False Police Report Domestic Violence

    Filing a false report in violation of KSA 21-3818 is a class A misdemeanor offense in the state of Kansas. A class A offense has a maximum penalty of up to 1 year in jail and a possible fine of $2500.00. Generally, it is unlikely that a person would serve that time and would receive a probation if convicted, but it is up to the judge at sentencing and the procedures in your locale. I do not practice in Newton and cannot speak to the standard practice in that area for charges of this nature....

    A third lifetime DUI in Kansas is a non-grid felony. The maximum time in custody is up to one year and a maximum of a $2500 fine. Additionally, a person is not eligible for probation until 90 days been served in custody (work release is a possible substitute if available in your area). You only have 10 days from receipt of the DC-27 (pink paper) to request an administrative hearing to defend against the additional suspension of your DL. Further, a DWS, when suspended for alcohol related...

  8. Do u think they will violate my supervised bond in johnson county, kansas for a ua positive for marijuana?

    Answered almost 3 years ago.

    1. Courtney Taylor Henderson
    1 lawyer answer

    It is likely that your bond supervision officer will file a non-compliance report with the Court if you are to test positive for marijuana after being placed on bond supervision. If the marijuana was in your system prior to being placed on bond supervision, then the officer will monitor the levels of THC in your system to ensure the levels are falling which would be to your benefit. The doctor recommendation for marijuana will have little weight in Johnson County, and could only be addressed...

    It will impact your diversion. It is likely the prosecutor will file a motion to revoke the diversion agreement due to the new charges. New offenses are one possible violation to the terms and conditions of diversion. It is important to continue to comply with the diversion, as only the Court can revoke the diversion agreement and failure to comply with other diversion conditions can result in additional reasons for revoking the diversion and only make the situation worse.

    Generally, the prosecutor can amend the ticket to a non-moving violation provided you are eligible. The cost of the ticket will increase as the non-moving violation is not reported to your driving record. You can also schedule the matter for a trial to determine guilt. The Court may grant a continuance to hire counsel or to give you more time to review it. If discovery exists, then you can request it at any time, as most jursidictions around Lawrence have open file policies. Traffic...
