    I'm sorry to hear about your situation. If you have no record and full restitution (or at least a majority of it) is paid prior to sentencing, there's a possibility the court would consider alternatives to custody. I would also recommend a few other tasks to consider if I was the attorney representing you.

  2. Can I do both CPAC and work furlough at the same time? Or is it one or the other? What are the benefits of each?

    Unfortunately, you cannot; it's either one or the other. Both alternatives to custody allow for you to keep your job if you are gainfully employed. At Work Furlough, you are required to pay approximately $41 a day and you have to live at the actual Work Furlough establishment during your sentence. CPAC, however, allows for you to remain at home while still keeping your job but you are still being heavily monitored by the Sheriff's department. Please keep in mind that both options are still...

    I'm sorry to hear about your situation. A second degree commercial burglary is considered a "wobbler" offense which means that it can be charged as a felony or misdemeanor. The good news is that you don't have a criminal record. Your attorney can argue your lack of criminal history as a mitigating factor, among others, when negotiating with the prosecutor. You should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney to discuss your options and strategy in approaching your case. Good luck!

    There are too many unknown variables to be able to effectively answer your question. You should thoroughly discuss all of the evidence (direct and/or circumstantial) with your attorney and review your potential defenses to commercial or residential burglary, depending on the specific charges that you are facing. If you are not satisfied with your attorney, then you should seek a confidential consultation or second opinion with other attorneys who are well-versed in criminal law. Best of luck...

  5. My friend got arrested last night for defending himself. He was innocent. But the cops arrested him anyway and impounded his car

    Your friend needs to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. Due to the fact that there are potential witnesses, it would be wise for him to hire an attorney and to conduct an investigation by interviewing witnesses right away. It is essential for your friend to "keep his mouth shut" so to speak and to not talk about the case with anyone. A seasoned attorney will be able to help him navigate through this difficult process and hopefully, contact the prosecution...

  6. Can the public defenders office represent both of the people in a codefendant case

    No, the public defender will not represent both due to a conflict. One defendant will likely be appointed the public defender whereas the other co-defendant will be represented by either the alternate public defender (if applicable in your county) or an attorney who is on the county's conflicts panel.

  7. What happens to my bail bond if the prosecutor fails to file charges? Does it self exonerate after some length of time?

    If your case originated from San Diego county, then the bond will exonerate if the prosecution fails to file charges. It is possible, however, that the District Attorney or City Attorney could file charges later on within the applicable statute of limitations.

    The court will appoint a public defender for your son at his first hearing assuming that he is eligible for one. In the mean time, if you are interested in retaining private counsel for your son, you should schedule free consultations and meet with experienced local criminal defense attorneys who may be able to provide you with additional guidance. Good luck!

    It is unlikely that the probation department is going to return your property just by virtue of you asking for its return. You should hire criminal defense attorney who can either communicate directly with the probation department on your behalf or get a court order.

    The main issues regarding deportation, although not exclusive, involve whether the offense is a crime involving moral turpitude (CIMT) and/or an "aggravated felony". You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney who is well-versed in the laws governing deportation. Good luck!
