  • Do I have to pay my bail?

    I went to jail and I bailed out. the judge told me I don't need to pay the bail anymore, that it's exonerated and I told the bails bond and they said they're going to take me to court if I don't pay! Can I go back to jail? Do I have to keep paying?

    Christopher’s Answer

    Yes, you are required to keep on paying on the bail contract, even though bail is exonerated. Otherwise, they can enforce it as a violation of a civil contract.

    Christopher’s Answer

    Immigration law is such a complicated field of the law and immigration attorneys normally concentrate solely on that field of practice. This is really not a do-it-yourself project and you need a good immigration attorney on retainer.

  • Is it possible to get my felony expunged?

    I filed 1244a with a serving of 128 days state jail in Fort Worth Tx. This goes back to 2009, was wandering if there's any way I could get this expunged. I want to go hunt with my fiance, and be able to legally own a gun, not for danger, but for p...

    Christopher’s Answer

    Not in your state. A felony conviction can't be expunged under LA statute. Only in cases in which charges are dismissed or you are found not guilty, are charges capable of being expunged or sealed.

  • I want to sue a church that is nearby where my wife and I live, maybe the local police as well.

    I want to sue because of noise pollution, and most of this is caused by church members. This church is terrible, having one mindless activity after another, night after night, bringing in the low crust. The police are culpable because they haven...

    Christopher’s Answer

    I lawsuit against a law enforcement agency is difficult to pursue, because they normally have immunity from lawsuit. The one exception is a 1983 civil rights action in federal court for violating your civil rights (like with the abuse of Rodney King). Mere police inaction does not arise to the level of violating your civil rights. There is also no such thing as "noise pollution," what you are talking about is disturbing the peace and it depends on how loud they are being, for how long, and whether the church was there first before you moved in. Courts have frequently dismissed lawsuits that people have brought against airports and baseball fields when the residents in the area knew full well the type of atmosphere that they were moving into. Yes, you can file a lawsuit, but that doesn't mean you will be successful.

    Christopher’s Answer

    A private investigator needs to be hired in order to locate the person in order to personally serve them with the contempt citation.

    Great advice by Mr. Murillo as always. Just to add one comment, if no contract calls for attorney fees and costs to the victorious party (which are discretionary anyway), it would likely be much more prudent to put your time and money behind trying to mediate this case before filing for suit if either small claims or county court. Experienced private mediators and former judges with JAMS and JAG are exceptional at being able to resolve even the most difficult of cases.

  • Can you sue a town for not following the state statutes, if they are a statutory town?

    The mayor of our town has ignored or not followed the state statutes on more than one occasion regarding state statutes and proper procedures. Can a citizen sue a town (not for money) but to properly follow the statutes? And can this be done by th...

    Christopher’s Answer

    Ms. Horner is absolutely correct that you need to have an attorney who is familiar with such actions to represent you in such a case. You aren't going to find that in SW CO. I was a judge in nearby Cortez for nearly a decade and the closest place that you "might" be able to find an attorney with experience is James Casey in Durango or possibly an attorney in Grand Junction. They will immediately try to get your case dismissed on a motion for summary judgment based on sovereign immunity and other bogus defenses. So, you need a top notch attorney.

    Christopher’s Answer

    I would have an attorney appear with you and have the clerks pull the file from the file room and send it up to the court clerks and the judge to expedite things. I would also have an original signed copy of proof that you completed your UPS. It depends on the judge and the day of the week and time of the day that you turn yourself in as to whether they will put you in jail. If it is a "docket" day, it is unlikely that they will put you in jail. If it is a "trial" day, they might. Definitely come to the court and have your attorney pay the clerks ALL of the fines and court costs that are owed in your case. Plenty of great criminal defense attorneys here on Avvo. You can't go wrong. I recommend some to Brian McHugh because he charges hourly and tends to be inexpensive and has almost 30 years of experience. However, others are JUST as competent. Good luck

    Christopher’s Answer

    It totally depends on the underlying charges, the state that you move to, and the judge. As a judge in the Four Corners, I FREQUENTLY made my warrants applicable to the Four Corners states of AZ, NM, UT, and CO. Judges don't like you blowing them off.
