First, you need to determine if the oxycotin caused your family member's death. Unless the death was caused by the medication, you don't appear to have any claim. If the medication caused the death, you will need to talk to an experienced medical malpractice attorney to determine whether the doctor's actions fell below the standard of care in the medical community. These are very difficult and very expensive cases to pursue and there is no chance to succeed without an experienced attorney.
If you are talking about criminal charges, you need to contact law enforcement in the location where the assaults took place and provide them with as much information and evidence as you are able. Ultimately, it will be up to law enforcement to investigate and see if they can collect enough evidence to support criminal charges.
If you are a witness to something, you may want to call the investigator to see what they need. If you have ANY reason to suspect that you may be the subject of a criminal investigation, you MUST get an attorney and you SHOULD NOT make any statement to any law enforcement officer or investigator under any circumstances.
The first thing you should do is to discuss the issue with the attorney who handled your bankruptcy. It would also be helpful to contact the bank to get a copy of the garnishment.
If the money was taken for taxes or student loans, then it is likely that these debts were not discharged in your bankruptcy and the seizure is proper. Also, if the debt was incurred after you filed your bankruptcy it would not be included. If the debt was discharged and the creditor properly listed in your...
You always have an absolute right to act as your own attorney and file anything you want on your own behalf. That said, you have no chance of winning such a motion.
There is evidence against you. That evidence will be in the form of testimony from the officer who believes that you obstructed him or her. That will certainly be enough for the case to go to trial. Whether or not the evidence will be sufficient to convince a jury that you actually committed the offense you were charged with...
Victims do not have the power to drop charges. Once a crime (such as hit and run) is reported, it is up to law enforcement to decide how to proceed. You need to hire a lawyer and avoid saying anything to any investigator. You or your insurance company will have to pay civil damges related to the damage you caused, but that is separate and apart from the criminal investigation.
If there is a real, actual, conflict of interest, you can seek to have your public defender replaced. However, this is a very rare circumstance which is unlikely to apply to your case. Simply because you wish your case would be going better, you cannot switch your court appointed counsel. The public defender is provided to you by the state (taxpayers). There simply aren't resources available to let you pick and choose until you're happy while someone else is paying the bill. If you pay for...
The civil penalty for shoplifting is real and is separate and apart from the criminal case you are going to court on.
While Walmart can sue for a civil judgment of up to $250 under Colorado law, it is not clear that they will actually take the time and expense to pursue the matter if you simply ignore the demand letter. Some stores simply send out the demand letter in hopes that they can collect the civil fine. Fewer will actually pay their attorney to pursue the matter in court.
