my case is all cluster f**ked as my court appointed attorney says,i really need to hire an attorney ,the court has messed m y case up from day one and im trying to get them to realize it was not me ,just because of my history doesnt mean that im ...
It sounds to me like you are more knowledgeable and more qualified to handle your defense than a licensed attorney, perhaps due to your history. Why don't you ask the judge if you can represent yourself and see if you are right? You apparently know what your attorney should have done. Why don't you do it yourself?See question
First time offender,
A violation of Health and Safety Code section 11358 and separately, a second charge of violating Health and Safety Code section 11359. Those are what the charges would be.See question
Install an IID? Work release? 3 or 5 years of probation? Thanks.
What is your meaning of "standard first?" Does the defendant have any prior convictions? Is there any problem legally with the traffic stop? Was the BAC measured by blood and if so, was there a proper chain of custody as suggested is required in Bullcomings v. New Mexico? If the BAC was measured by breath, did the suspect have GERD, asthma, a history of poor dental hygiene? Was Title 17 followed? Was the device properly calibrated? Was the operator properly qualified? What was the BAC? Do you want your attorney to just bypass all these questions that could result in a dismissal or wet reckless and instead just surrender you to a DUI?See question

I admire your trust in our legal system, especially since you have been through it before and know how it is. At the same time, I would protect yourself because it is not perfect. Hire an attorney who is an experienced criminal defense attorney who regularly appears in the courthouse so your position can be properly considered. Now is not the time to be penny-wise and pound-foolish. Best of luck to you.See question
We are at sentencing and boyfriends judge is personally out to get him. How can he change judges
There is a motion under California Code of Civil Procedure section 170, but it may be extremely difficult to prevail at now. More specifics of such bias are most likely necessary. Best of luck to your boyfriend.See question
FALSELY ARRESTED with no warrant or probable cause for a crime I did not commit while I was parked inside my car not in the store. Witness gave description of a medium sized male Hispanic with shaved head which was vague yet I fit the popular desc...
Sorry to hear about this and I understand your anger. You can indeed sue if you want, but be very careful in doing so. First, however, what you need to absolutely do first is successfully defend yourself of the charges. Then and only after that, speak to a civil rights attorney. Do not sue the police while the criminal case is still pending. Best of luck to you.See question
How is a misdemeanor perceived with respect to finding employment? In the state of california is where I was convicted.
It matters quite a bit on the employer and the type of job you are seeking to be hired for. It most likely also depends on the remainder of your record and your resume. Are you presentable, articulate and educated? Does the employer desperately need new employees or is it more selective? Best of luck to you.See question
I recently was pulled over in a 55 mph zone doing 90 only due to my gf being pregnant and falling on her stomach which caused bleeding.no excuse for me to drive so fast still. I let stepdad use my car while I worked because his was in shop gettin...
When you were pulled over, were you headed to the hospital for your GF? Did you tell the officer that? Did an ambulance then pick her up and continue with her to the hospital? As to what will happen to you after this, a lot depends upon your criminal history, but sales of a controlled substance is punished by a minimum of two years in state prison. Probation could be an option depending upon your prior history. Retain an experienced attorney like the great Bob (Robert) Marshall, who is up in your area.See question
Is it difficult to find employment in the state of alabama after your criminal record is lowered to a misdemeanor expunged in California. I'm applying for graduate school at the University of alabama as well.
Good question. The answer to your question probably matters quite a bit upon what type of job you are looking for, how you present yourself and what your qualifications and background is. Best of luck to you.See question
in high school, 5 years ago junior year, i was being harassed daily by students, students stalking me home, leaving dead animals on my front yard, bleaching my grass to spell fag. I confided in the school dean when i was called in for missing clas...
Sorry to hear about this experience. Were you 16 or 17 as a junior five years ago? Nevertheless, report it to the police and let the police and prosecutors sort things out. Placing one's hands on another's shoulders and knees, especially over clothes, and rubbing them is most likely not considered a sexual advance (under Penal Code section 647) and may have been his sincere way to try to make you feel OK. It also might have been a sexual advance, but I doubt it. Nevertheless, feel free to speak to the police about this, yet I would not expect too much.See question
