    If you believe you may have committed food stamp fraud the most important thing to remember right now is that you shouldn't make any statements to anyone about the case, your income, or the makeup of your household. Many times these cases are prosecuted based on statements and admissions. If you believe you are being investigated hire an attorney and direct the DHS investigator or law enforcement officer to your attorney. The Leier Law Office Kent J. Leier

    Your question relates to a very complex area of the law. It is very difficult if not impossible to give you any accurate legal advice on this issue without taking a look at the search warrant and doing an in depth initial consultation. Plus, if digital storage devices, camera, and computers are being searched I'm guessing you are dealing with very serious charges. I'd recommend you contact an attorney to set up an initial consultation. Kent J. Leier The Leier Law Office, LLC

    The information cannot be used against you if you were in custody. Whether or not you were in "custody" is not always an easy question to answer. You should contact an attorney to discuss your case.

    Mr. Torbenson is correct. Also, I will add that since you are on probation you are required to report all law enforcement contact to your probation officer; therefore, it wold be best to report it to him/her as soon as possible. Keep in mind though that you have the right to remain silent and you should exercise it. You have to report the law enforcement contact, but you don't have to tell your probation officer all the details about what happened. I agree that it would best to contact a...

    The attorneys above are correct. I would add that you should not have any contact with him unless the protection order has been modified to allow such. If he has any contact with you in violation of the protection order he will be facing another class 1 misdemeanor. Kent J. Leier The Leier Law Office, LLC

    You aren't going to have much luck hiding out. The District Attorney's Office and other members of law enforcement will likely find you and serve you with a subpoena to testify at the trial. If you do not show up on your subpoena a warrant will issue for your arrest. Your boyfriend needs to consider hiring defense counsel to fight these charges. The Leier Law Office, LLC Kent J. Leier

    It sounds to me like you are on pretrial services as a condition of being released on bond. Mr. Luna is correct that the judge can lawfully impose conditions of bond that he/she believes to be appropriate. You can petition the court in writing or orally at your next court date to modify the conditions of your bond. The Leier Law Office Kent J. Leier

    My colleagues are correct. Hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer to help craft a global disposition will serve you well. If you were on probation when the new charges were filed the DA will likely be pushing for a jail sentence.

    My colleagues are correct. You should contact a DUI attorney to fight the charges and protect your license immediately. On the western slope it doesn't get any better than Luna Law. I'd recommend you give them a call. The Leier Law Office Kent J. Leier
