  • Once the da gives the procescutor a case will a charge be filled or dropped

    It's a child sex crime

    Macy’s Answer

    The DA is the prosecutor. So I'm not sure what your question is. It is up to the DA's office whether to accept a case. Typically on a child sex case, they are going to accept it and present it to the Grand Jury for indictment. The Grand Jury can no bill the case, but more often than not they are going to indict it and send to a trial court DA. At that point anything can happen--dismissal, plea bargain, trial. Obviously this is a very serious allegation and you need legal counsel immediately.

  • I was charged with 3rd degree assault in an altercation with my wife a few nights ago. I am also on probation for 2nd DWI.

    I'm not entirely sure what your question is. Almost certainly a probation violation will be filed. You will want to hire an attorney as soon as possible to stay in front of this. Your attorney can get a bond set on the pv and arrange for you to do a walk through so that you do not actually have to go into custody.

    Another reason to hire an attorney sooner than later is that they may be able to prevent an indictment. You won't be notified about a court date until you are already indicted.

    You need to start talking to local experienced defense attorneys as soon as possible to start preparing your defense in both cases.

    No. When you serve time you are stuck with permanent convictions.

    Macy’s Answer

    It sounds like you are seeing your attorney at your court settings? You are going to have insist on a meeting with him. You need to sit down and understand the status of your case. I always explain to clients that a misdemeanor in Dallas can take several months to resolve. I'm sure he can just plea you out at your next court date, but if you are trying to get the case reduced or dismissed, this is something that takes a defense attorney some time to finesse--if at all. But he definitely needs to sit down with you so that you fully understand the status of your case.

    Attorneys are required to keep their files for five years. After that time, they may dispose of them without consulting their clients.

    Macy’s Answer

    I've never seen it done this way. Your probation should be transferred to your county of residence. If your PO will not agree to this, you may have to hire an attorney to get a motion in front of the judge.

    Macy’s Answer

    What this attorneys office is doing is illegal. He cannot go off your bond simply because you do not hire him. The court assigns a court date whether or not you hire an attorney (which obviously you need to do). I would contact the court directly because this attorney seems to be lying to you.

    Macy’s Answer

    You will be arrested when you report. Then you will remain in custody until the pv is disposed of. If you cannot afford an attorney, the court will appoint you one. If this will cause you to lose your job, you're going to have to find a way to hire an attorney before this happens.

    If you are charged with a crime you need a criminal defense attorney. I would interview a few because their approaches and fees will vary. Most of us offer free consultations. Just start calling around.
