  • If the cops come will I be prosecuted through guilt by association? How?

    I am a minor from Greenwich, CT. I do not drink. There is a party tonight where there will be drinking. Will i get prosecuted for being there if the cops show up? Please let me know!

    Julio’s Answer

    Sometimes all kids get lumped together, right? Not fair, but it happens from time to time. DO NOT DRINK - not even a drop. I would first advise you to just not go. I know for you that may be a downer but why up the odds of being involved in an issue or even allowing for police to say that you were even in its possession or give you a curfew violation? If you do go... If police show up... If you are arrested...if you DID NOT HAVE EVEN HAVE A DROP... Then respectfully ask the police to perform a portable breath test which should show 0.00 because you did not drink. You are clearly a considerate young adult. Be smart and don't let peer pressure get you. Be safe. Be wise. Good luck!

    Well, this depends on your personal circumstances and the details of any offer that was extended to you. If the risk of trial and its consequences outweigh the benefits of any offer extended, then a plea may be wise. If you feel you can win the case and a loss does not pose a significant threat to you financially, personally, or career wise, etc., then consider trial.

    Congrats! You seem to have successfully completed your diversion program. The prosecution has terminated its prosecution of you for that particular case. You have no conviction for that charge/case.

    Julio’s Answer

    More than likely you will receive a summons in the mail from the Juvenile Court. It is quite normal for a case to proceed in this way, for them to release you. They should have informed you that they will forward the case onto the County Attorney's office for possible charging. Please contact our office for a consultation should you need more information as our firm does nothing but criminal defense and juvenile defense.

  • How is this possible?? How did it go from assault charge to an indictment with 5 counts??

    I was charged with assault in march 2011, the charges were dismissed w/o prejudice 9/6/11. I was served indictment papers today chargeing me with kidnapping, 2 counts of aggravated assult, assault, and disorderly conduct.

    Julio’s Answer

    The State has 7 years to file felony charges against you, which sounds like what occurred here. If this was simply a misdemeanor they would have one year to file against you. The charges may have increased due to further investigation by police or because there was new evidence located. Call us if you have any further questions. Thanks

    Julio’s Answer

    Yep. He needs a lawyer ASAP. Charges are likely and being on parole also adds time to any new charge. I agree that the likely charge is MIW - misconduct involving weapons. Remain silent is my advice and also: Set up a free consult. 602-343-1818. Thanks and good luck.

    Julio’s Answer

    Yes, request a public defender. You will fill out a financial work sheet from the court to determine your inability to hire counsel. You will then be provided counsel only if the State is seeking jail time. Trial on your own = not recommended at all. Good Luck!

  • WHAT GOOD WILL IT DO IF I WRITE A LETTER TO THE JUDGE TELLING HIM TO GIVE MY BOYFRIEND ONE LAST CHANCE FOR HIS DAUGHTER?

    TRAFFICK STOLEN PROP 1ST DEG BURGLARY 2ND DEGREE 2ND OFFENSE DANGEROUS DRUG-POSS/USE 1ST OFFENSE MARIJUANA-POSSESS/USE 1ST OFFENSE DRUG PARAPHERNALIA-POSSESS/USE 1ST OFFENSE

    Julio’s Answer

    You must absolutely check with the attorney first. But without question do not send a letter directly to the jude. Send it to the lawyer. If helpful the lawyer should know to do two things. 1. File a Notice of Filing of Letters, and 2. Submit a Sentence Memo. This way only helpful letters get screened first and then given to the judge and prosecutor. Also, the highlights of such letters may be referenced to within the lawyer's sentence memo which will also be disclosed to the judge and prosecutor in an effort to support any sentencing oral argument. Good Luck.

  • Why did the police take my boyfriends friend in for questioning?

    my boyfriends charges are TRAFFICK STOLEN PROP 1ST DEG BURGLARY 2ND DEGREE DANGEROUS DRUG-POSS/USE MARIJUANA-POSSESS/USE DRUG PARAPHERNALIA-POSSESS/USE FAILURE TO PAY FINE, FEES DRIVE W/LIC SUSP/REVOKE/CANC VIOLATION OF PROMISE TO APPEAR

    Julio’s Answer

    They may be trying to determine his friend's role, what the friend knows about your boyfriend's involvement, and/or trying to flip the friend. Investigators may claim they have evidence on the friend to get at your boyfriend or others. However, it is really your boyfriend who needs solid, experienced representation in such cases. And his friend needs pre-file representation. Call us if you would like a consult: 602-343-1818. www.LaboyLaw.com Either way: Good Luck.

  • Can my roommate/friend press charges against me for touching him while he's sleeping?

    I feel silly asking, but I have touched him a total of 3 different times (on 3 different nights) while he was asleep, and he never objected to the touching, pretended to remain sleeping actually, we are both grown adults, but now he is threatening...

    Julio’s Answer

    Yes. If your roommate actually reports the matter to authorities they will investigate. If investigators believe there is enough to the claim to request charges from the prosecutor's office they may forward what is called a "submittal" for charges. Our office can assist even at this stage with pre-file representation as well as with full counsel. Also, I agree with previous counsel's post and comment. Mr. Orent is also correct, in my view. If I were you, I would seek a free consult. Call our office any time. 602-343-1818.
