    Jay’s Answer

    A dui that results in substantial bodily harm or death carries a mandatory minimum of 2 years in prison and a maximum of 20 years in prison. If the person had a prior dui felony that the penalty can be even more severe.

  • My daughter was questioned at school by cops is that legal

    minor at school questioned by cops

    Jay’s Answer

    The police can question your child at school. The real issue would be, why did they question your child? Is your child a suspect or a witness? Did the questioning involve anything about you or your family members? So, the concern, if any, should center on what exactly the police asked your child.

  • 3rd dui felony drugs. Can I leave state for work w/o notifying judge? Court ordered release w/o court specifying to stay put.

    I'm a resident of las vegas,nev. No bail bond. No direct order to stay in town particularly. Want to hire lawyer and have him represent me in las vegas while moving to and working in kansas. Will return to las vegas as required by my attorney.

    Jay’s Answer

    If you were given an own recognizance release, the terms are that you appear in court for your hearings. Normally no other restrictions apply so leaving the state would be fine. You will need to appear for the preliminary hearing or trial. The best thing to do is consult with your attorney to make sure that you have no restrictions on your ability to leave the state.
