    Questions about appeal generally indicate that you went to trial and lost. An appeal is not a chance to try new legal theories or bring up ideas that you missed out on at trial. Rather, an appeal is a chance for the court to correct legal errors made by the judge at trial. You describe your view of your case, but you say nothing about what was presented or argued at trial or how the judge ruled. In most cases, if an argument was not raised before the trial judge, you cannot bring it up on...

  2. A bounty hunter was looking for my husband what can be the reason and what do we have to do.

    A bounty hunter finds people who have posted bond and then failed to show up for court. If your husband has never been arrested, then it is unlikely that he is being sought by a bounty hunter. It could be a skip tracer or a process server seeking to serve court papers.

    Yes, and yes. You are responsible for damaging someone else's property and you committed a crime by following your friend's advice. I suspect you already knew that. You might, or might not, ever get caught. However, what you did is still wrong.

  4. Can you sue a Dr. for wrongful death if he had overprescribed medication that led to addiction that led to death (overdose)?

    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.

    All trusts become irrevocable once the settlor dies. You may want to review the trust with an attorney to understand your rights.

    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...
