    First, I'm sorry to hear about this situation and I hope that your family is doing OK after this clearly traumatic situation. Unfortunately, police acting like such brutes is not uncommon. Since you weren't the target of the criminal investigation, there's not much a criminal defense attorney can do for you, but I applaud you for following through with the complaint. I'm going to switch the practice area here to civil rights and hopefully you'll get a good response from an attorney who...

    A DUI causing injury (VC 23153) is not automatically a felony, but can be filed as a felony or misdemeanor. If a DUI does not cause injury, it can only be a felony if it's the 4th one inside of 10 years. Based on the two priors, the DA will most likely file it as a felony. Alhambra has some of the tougher DAs and judges in the county, especially when it comes to DUI. While calling the police wasn't a smart move, it can be used to demonstrate remorse and concern for others. Also, it being a...

    It sounds like the DMV has begun an administrative suspension of your license. Since you've indicated a prior, this would be a one year suspension. Typically, you've got only 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing, but if the police failed to notify you that they would initiate a suspension with the DMV, your attorney can get you a hearing and start fighting your license suspension. Whether the DA will file DUI charges against you is uncertain, but if they do, they'll...

    Gather the evidence of your completion and payments. There may have been some error. A violation can occur for a variety of reasons, but if you weren't arrested for any new offense and have complied with the terms of your sentence, you shouldn't get a probation violation. Contact the clerk's office to see what the alleged violation is. Best, Nicholas M.

    As Mr. Slaten said, a California attorney isn't going to be able to help you with your Nevada case, but can help you reduce the impact the two California cases have on your record. If you repost your question with Nevada as the location, you'll get more pertinent answers. Also, congratulations on what seems like turning a corner and I wish you the best of luck with your future.

    There's probably not an attorney in the state who specializes in assault on a peace officer cases. It's simply too uncommon of an offense for anyone to specialize in. What your husband ultimately needs is a skilled criminal defense attorney who understands the defenses available to someone in your husband's shoes. He's likely got a significant criminal record, and that can hold back reasonable plea negotiation. He might have to take the case to trial to avoid imposition of a longer prison...

    It doesn't sound true, and it isn't. This crime, depending on the amounts, could be very serious. And the execution made it very easy to prove. Do not speak to the police or the fraud investigator. Even without your confession, they will likely be able to prove that you committed a crime, but they want to build more evidence. That is the only reason they want to talk to you. You will most likely be charged with a crime in the near future and it would be wise to consult with some local...

    Parents don't file charges in criminal cases, the DA does. The DA may or may not file charges. Whether they could proceed without a cooperative witness depends on the other evidence that they have. This is a very serious accusation and a 288 conviction could mean lifetime sex offender registry, state prison and a lifetime of problems. Consult with some attorneys to discuss the case in greater detail.

    OC does it, mostly for young offenders. They usually call it "YDAD" (Youth Drug and Alcohol Deterrence). It's similar to LA's HAM, and intended to show people the "real consequences" of drug and alcohol use.

    PC 422, criminal threats is what is known in CA law as a "wobbler" meaning that in may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. As a felony, it is a strike offense ("three strikes" law, and carries a term of up to 3 years in state prison. As a misdemeanor, it can carry up to one year in county jail. Whether it is charged as a misdemeanor or felony depends on the actual conduct (how serious and how egregious the threats are) and the criminal record of the defendant. With 50K bail, the police...
