    It is common in criminal cases for defendants to switch attorneys. It is important to find someone that you have trust and confidence in and that has a good reputation. It is also important that if you do switch attorneys that you do it in a timely matter. For example you should not wait a week before trial. If you decide to hire a new attorney you should give them time to properly research and investigate the case so that they can provide your best possible defense.

    I am sorry to hear about your friend and brother. Murder is a first degree felony that has a range of punishment of 5-99 years or life. Both Aggravated Assault and Attempted Murder are second degree felonies and carry the same range of punishment of 2- 20 years in TDC. Aggravated Assault is easier for the State to prove. Attempted Murder would not change the range of punishment and may be harder for the State to prove.

    A traffic ticket attorney may be your best best. If you have proof that you paid before your court date you should ultimately be able to straighten out the situation. However, as we all know the way things are run in the government doe not always make sense. The one thing you also have to look out for is whether these this FTA is one and the same with the ticket you made and not some ticket you may have overlooked.

  6. Is it possible to give information to a defense attorney anonymously, and how would a person go about doing it?

    I agree with the prior post. It is not difficult to provide information anonymously to a defense attorney. The real question is whether the information will be useful. The attorney may be able to cross examine witnesses regarding the information or it may send them in the right direction while investigating the case, but the ability to have a live witness testify as to the information, would be most beneficial.

    I agree with everyone here that you must hire an attorney. A key question that will need to be determined if you had permission to enter the apartment. With no criminal record you are eligible for probation and deferred adjudication. The range of punishment for this offense is 2-20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. You must remember that you are innocent until proven guilty. Depending on the facts it may be possible to get the case dismissed or reduced to a misdemeanor.

    If the probation is actually a deferred adjudication then if he successfully completes it, he can file a Petition for Nondisclosure. If the Judge grants it, his record will be sealed from the public, but not the State. He will not be eligible for an expungement. If he is on a probation, not deferred, unfortunately he will not eligible for either option.

    He can get probation for the burglary of a habitation if he does not have prior felony convictions. The assault can have a negative effect. The Judge may not want to grant probation to someone who cannot make it through bond without being charged with a crime. It is important that he speak with his attorney to present himself in the best positive light possible.

    As your son is charged with a 3rd Degree Felony punishable from 2-10 years in prison, he needs to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney. If true, these are very good facts for his defense.
