  1. Can the tasc diversion be used against you during trial?

    They probably can't use TASC information against you. However, if you testify and you say that the drugs weren't yours, etc., they may be able to use your admissions in the TASC forms to impeach you. As for the conflict of interest question, it's hard to say without more specific information.

    Since you are only 14 years old, your case will stay in the juvenile court system. If this is your first offense, you may be offered a diversion program where you can take some drug classes and possibly get this off your record. Don't ever bring drugs to school. Not only could you be charged with a crime but you could also get suspended and that can affect your future as well because that will show up on your school record if you want to go to college. Have your parents contacgt an attorney...

    Since this case originates from Georgia, you need to ask the question of Georgia attorneys.

    I agree with my eloquent colleague Mr. Kephart when he said that you should have stopped the touching immediately. Please know that the police may consider you complicit in the criminal act of prostitution if you paid for your session. Be careful, I have a feeling that you are being investigated. I would advise you to get a lawyer before even considering going down to the police station.

  5. PHOTORADAR TICKET - Challenge on grounds of "lack of personal jurisdiction" BEFORE a valid service is achieved. Why do so then?

    First of all, if you received a photo radar ticket in the mail, then my advice would be to ignore it. The court must serve you properly (by process server or by certified mail with a signed receipt) in order to start the court case against you. Many jurisdictions don't do that because it cost too much money so they are betting on people just paying the ticket or showing up after the initial notice. Wait until you served properly before addressing any issues with the court regarding statutes....

    You may be eligible for "diversion." Diversion is a program for first time offenders where you are given the opportunity to have the case dismissed if you complete assigned classes. However, if you are offered this option and choose to do it, make sure that you make every effort to complete the classes. A missed class could get you booted out of the program and they don't give second chances. Good luck.

    You definitely need to hire an Arizona attorney. I have no doubt that you have a probation violation petition and a warrant on the case. The attorney can likely get the case reset back in court and get you in touch with a probation officer who will need to speak with you to prepare a current report for the court. An attorney may be able to negotiate with the prosecutor to allow you to be terminated from probation with payment in full of the restitution. Jail time is a possibility but it may...

    Did you fail out of a TASC drug diversion program or was the drug classes ordered by the court after you were sentenced? This makes a difference. If you failed to complete TASC then expect to get a summons in the mail telling you to show up for court because the prosecution will go forward. If you failed to complete the drug class after sentencing, then you likely have a warrant out for your arrest. Either way, you probably want to call an attorney so that they can help you address the...

    Burglary in the 3rd degree is defined as entering or remaining unlawfully in a non-residential structure or in a fenced commercial or residential yard with the intent to commit a theft or a felony therein. It includes breaking into a car. Burglary in the 3rd degree is a Class 4 felony. Unlawful entry is "criminal trespass" and means to enter or remain unlawfully. The degree of criminal trespass depends on whether it is a residential or non-residential structure. If it is a...

    If you ignore it, the court will issue a warrant for your arrest and Michigan will likely suspend your driver's license until you address it. Presuming it's a misdemeanor charge (it would be a misdemeanor if you received a citation), Arizona does not extradite on these warrants. Whether it's treated as a first or second offense can depend on whether the prosecutor discovers the other DUI and whether they can prove it. I suggest that you speak with a Phoenix attorney about all of the ins and...
