I didn't see a question in your note. It appears you are upset that the PO won't take your calls. The PO has no duty to take your calls. You also mention behavioral, mental health and drug issues. Are you asking whether those should have an impact on his probation -- or his judgment of conviction? If so, more information is needed but the short answer is probably not. As my colleagues below state, you should contact a good criminal defense attorney. You will likely get information that will help you better understand the PO and the criminal justice system as whole. Good luck to both you and your son.See question
I'm planning on pleading guilty should i still get a lawyer? I was told i'll probably only have to pay a fine but cops'll tell you anything so any pro advice would be welcome.
If you feel you should plead guilty without consulting with a lawyer, you proceed at your own risk. Most likely, however, you will receive only a fine and court costs. The charge comes with a maximum of several months in jail and a maximum fine, I believe, of $1,000. You could also be placed on probation. Good luck.See question

If law enforcement or some other agent of the state gave away or disposed of property which you owned, you may have a claim for reimbursement. You should contact an attorney to pursue further. Some of the property may still be held in evidence. An attorney can help you recover that property as well.See question
I'm being sued by the state of Idaho for foster care (I'm the non defending parent) my girlfriend at the time stole my son from me from Missouri and fled to Idaho, she got him taken by cps, I fought and fought and I now have custody of him, today ...
If I understand your question, you are being sued in Idaho for care which was provided to your son by your girlfriend after she fled to Idaho and after the child was removed from her in Idaho. In other words, the state of Idaho would like to be reimbursed for the care they provided to your son. Why would you want to "fight" against that? If a doctor provided some care to your son while your girlfriend was having her issues, would you want to fight that, too? As the parent of a child, you are responsible for all of the "necessaries" provided to your son by a third party, regardless of whether you specifically authorized them. You may have a dispute about the amount, or maybe even whether the care provided by the state was necessary, but you didn't provide enough information to know from your question. However, assuming your son was placed into foster care after all child protection laws were followed by the court, the care provided to your son was likely necessary and you would likely lose a challenge to the state's request for reimbursement. Good luck.See question
If I am 17 and pregnant, do I have any say in the custody agreement for my baby? Does my mom have to sign off on it? The father and I agree, and plan to get married when we turn 18, but I live with my mom who is very controlling."
As the biological parent, you have a lot of control over the custody of your child. If you and the father agree on that, no one else is typically able to interfere. In some cases, grandparents can intervene in the case if they can show they have been acting as de facto parents of the child for some time.See question
10 years ago was involved in a felony. Ended up with a withheld conviction for grand theft. 5 years of probation, no violations or issues. Been off probation for almost 5 years. What are my chances of getting a pardon and getting my record cleared?
A pardon is relief that can only be granted by a petition to the Board of Pardons and Parole, a division of the Department of Corrections, State of Idaho. If you were granted a withheld judgment and you had o probation violations, you are eligible to have your case dismissed by filing a motion with the sentencing court, which is likely more easy to accomplish than a pardon. Lots of good attorneys in Boise can help you with this for minimal cost. Good luck.See question
Two people arrested at the same time for the same crimes,housed together in jail.
No. It would be unwise for the prosecution to allow such a thing to occur, but I don't see any grounds for dismissal based solely on the fact two codefendants are in the same cell.See question
This answer depends on many variables. It would depend on your age, who the sitting judge would be, and other variables which make it difficult to answer your question with any kind of reliability. You should call a local criminal defense attorney in your area. Mike Palmer and others in his firm in Coeur d'Alene should be able to help you.See question
