    Stephen’s Answer

    If you are charged with felony assault there will be a bench warrant after you fail to appear in court. That warrant will be honored in all 50 states during your lifetime so if an officer ever pulls you over and runs your ID on the computer, you will be arrested and extradited back to New Mexico. Some MVDs are also revoking driver licenses based on felony warrants in other states.

    If the officer did not charge you with a felony battery, then you won't be extradited. Some officers will arrest and release you on a misdemeanor if they pull you over and get a misdemeanor hit on their computer search; others will just give you a warning to take care of this.

  • If my house got raided for stolen property and they didn't find nothing but they did find drugs but no one was arrested why?

    And could they be watching me to build a case

    Stephen’s Answer

    Maybe they can't prove who owned the drugs. Clean up your act cuz you got one foot in jail.

  • My husband was just arrested. I only know it's for embezzlement at his work.

    I was told he went downtown for questioning and was sent to booking. Where do I start? Where do I find an attorney?

    Stephen’s Answer

    I would hire the bondsman first to get your husband released. Then he can shop for a good lawyer.

  • Am I being wrongly tried for battery?

    In the police report it says I walked away and then was struck. It also states that I did not strike her I grabbed her arm to keep her from hitting me again. This is interfering with my living situation and my employment search. Is there anything...

    Stephen’s Answer

    Grabbing a person's arm in a rude, angry or insolent manner is a battery. It is a close call for the court to decide your good or bad intent when you grabbed her.

  • Do you have to put an ignition interlock if you were convicted of a DUI in NM in 2007 and your license has been revoked

    License was revoked in 2007, I want to go to DMV and get my license will an interlock be required since it has been 7 years since I have had the conviction

    Stephen’s Answer

    Ask MVD but the answer is probably yes. Most people would have received an interlock license for one year in 2007 to satisfy the requirement. Waiting 7 years to get a license only delayed the inevitable.

    As is means no warranty and, with a clean inspection just months ago, you can hardly claim the dealer knew of a defect in the transmission when he sold the car

    These are very emotional times. A person can show no signs of coming out of a coma even though they are breathing with some assistance.

  • My sister was arrested for harboring a fugitive (her boyfriend) what happens now, and what is going to happen to her?

    Her boyfriend was arrested for escaping custody and drug charges. My sister is also a felon that has competed her time.

    Stephen’s Answer

    Harboring a Felon is itself a felony and carries a basic sentence of 18 months in prison. Being an ex-con the court won't hesitate and for one prior felony she is looking at an additional one year in prison under the habitual offender act.
