    Your friend could be facing a very serious offense leading jail or prison time along with probation, fines, and substance abuse counseling.

    Your sentence may be modified by the judge, but you must bring it to the judge's attention by a motion. Often, you can walk in to the court and ask to see the judge. Most courts have certain days and times set aside for this so you may want to call ahead to see when you should go to the court. The court staff will pull your file and send you and it to the judge. At that time, you will be able to ask the judge for the changes you want. Be aware, however, the judge may require you to put your...

    In most cases, an officer can talk to and question a person before an arrest and then use any statements by that person aainst that person in a criminal proceeding. Miranda safeguards only apply when the person is in custody and being questioned. However, without further knowing the facts, there is no definite answer to your question. You should contact an attorney as soon as possible.

    Stalking may be considered a sex offense depending on the circumstances. This type of case requires a close review of all the facts. Without such a review, there is no way to advise the person whether to take the plea. The person needs an attorney as soon as possible to represent the person, investigate the case, and advise the person. Our firm is experienced in this area.

    Definately, more information is needed to answer your question. More details as to times, dates, courts, and criminal history will need to be reviewed by an attorney. Warrants for failure to appear may generate additional charges and fees.

    This simply means the state did not file the needed paper work with court within the required time. The state may still file charges and the court issue a summons for you to come to court or for your arrest. I need more information regarding the alleged offense to determine where the charges may be filed, the time within which the charges must be filed, and the likelihood of charges being filed.
