    Often when you are sentenced (be it after trial or after a plea bargain...both are "dispositions"), you may be required to do other conditions. For example, if you are ordered to do some kind of classes or other obligation (like fines or restitution), there may be a post-disposition court date for you to bring proof of enrollment or completion to the court. At a preliminary hearing, your case would still be open. Only if you plead at the Preliminary hearing would your next court date be any...

    These are good questions to ask the attorney who handles it for you. Larger grow operations are never going to be completely safe, but your best bet is to consult with an experienced attorney and work with them through the paperwork. Best, Nicholas M.

    Charges like this are just ridiculous to me. The DA who files the charges drank underage at some point. The judge will have done the same. Still, the charge carries significant penalties. While my colleagues have pointed out the statutory maximum allowable punishment of 6 months, but that just would not happen in this matter. Your son would likely be eligible for community service or . The biggest problem with this charge is that it fits into a category called "crimen false" (crimes of...

    You're right about this being a broad question. The statute of limitations on most serious felonies is several years. This means that the DA can bring charges several years after the event. If someone is in custody, he/sh must be arraigned within 48 hours of arrest and has a right to a preliminary hearing within 10 days of arraignment. At the preliminary hearing, the government must make a showing that there is enough evidence to justify proceeding with criminal charges against the...

    One of the main factors here will be whether the first DUI that was "dropped to a reckless" was handled as a "wet reckless" (priorable as a DUI) or a "dry reckless" (not priorable as a DUI). I think that the hit and run should be defensible depending of whether anything happened to the stop sign. Call some local attorneys and get an idea of what it will cost to defend you against these charges.

    Alongside running your prints, they will most likely run your name and DOB as well. Even if you were never fingerprinted, there is a discoverable record of the charge and dismissal. A dismissed charge shouldn't be held against you. This is your career, so I would either check your record yourself to be sure or at least consult with an attorney who has some experience with state licensing agencies. It is usually best to disclose any arrests/charges, but it will depend on the wording of...

    Anytime you're pulled over with a restricted license (issued by the DMV, not a judge), there's a good chance the officer will ask you where you're going or headed.

    You can absolutely go in and enter a not guilty plea or ask for more time. The other option would be to consult with other attorneys and see if their fees are more affordable or if they'll accept payments. Legal fees vary substantially from attorney to attorney. Avvo rules prohibit price quotes in the Q & A forum, but most of the attorneys here on Avvo offer free consultations. Good luck.

    I like Mr. Slaten's answer a lot. Employers aren't supposed to use a dismissed reckless driving against you, but depending on who does their background checks, might see it. Best not to conceal anything, but keep it simple.

    You may have some defenses and motion issues, but this needs to be explored and navigated by an experienced attorney. Consult with some attorneys (most offer free consultations) and find out what it will cost and what defenses might be available to you. Best, Nicholas M.
