    They should not make you start over again but you need to discuss this with the program director.

    It is difficult to say whether it was an illegal search since the reason for the initial detention is unknown and whether the search was of his home, garage, car, etc.

    It is ineffective assistance of counsel, see my recent blog on new case from supreme court relating to requirement to convey offer to client. Sounds as if it ended up better for you by going to trial anyways.

    It is running about 10% sometimes less but since he is in on probation violations they tend to keep them longer.

    Use the services of the public defender since you qualify and probably can't afford private counsel. The court will appoint a public defender at your arraignment.

    If you have all the documentation on the purchase and you can prove the documentation was legitimate I would not worry about criminal prosecution. Ebay keeps all records of transactions so you should be able to prove how much you paid and who you bought it from. You acted in good faith believing the watch was a Rolex so you can't be prosecuted for fraud. He may try and sue you in civil court but you have a defense and there is an old latin saying that applies here and that is "caveat...

    If it is a misdemeanor they usually have one year to file the complaint, unless you are absent from the state. If they file within the year but do not execute on the arrest warrant you may be able to get the complaint dismissed due a violation of your due process and speedy trial rights (Serna Motion).

  8. Is there a violation of CA vehicle code for failure to yield in a parking structure while reversing?

    Answered about 2 years ago.

    No. 22106 VC deals with unsafe backing. The statute specifies that no person shall back a vehicle on a HIGHWAY until such movement can be made with reasonable safety. Highway is defined in VC 360 as way or place of whatever nature, publicly maintained and open to the use of the public for purposes of vehicular travel. Parking structures are not considered highways. And it doesn't really matter if he violated any vehicle code, if he failed to back with reasonable safety he was negligent.

    I'm not so sure you will be required since you are not living in CA and I am assuming you have an Oregon license. Also, the courts do not require the IID. The newer IID legislation placed the burden on the DMV to oversee and monitor the program. Usually, as a condition of probation, the judge will state that you must comply with the DMV's IID requirement. The court does not oversee the IID install and you are usually not required to file your proof of install with the court. You should...

    Yes you can fight any charge. The fact you did not have a license does not bar you from fighting the red light violation.
