    You could be taken into custody at the continued arraignment. You should certainly consider retaining an experienced local criminal attorney to handle this case as you are looking at some jail time due to your prior record and the current felony charge. Many criminal lawyers offer free consultations and you should speak to some over the phone or in person about your case. David M. Boertje, Esq. (619) 229-1870 www.boertjelaw.com

    It's impossible for an attorney to evaluate how much your case should be worth without knowing a lot more details, such as the extent of the injuries, the medical bills incurred, how long you were in physical therapy, more about how the incident occurred (to determine whether liability can be determined) and other factors. You should consider consulting with a personal injury lawyer over the phone or in person to discuss your case. Slip and fall cases can be very difficult to establish...

    No lawyer can tell you whether or not your case will be dropped or what the outcome will be at this stage. Additionally, the prosecutors may file different charges then you were arrested on. You do not want to simply go in and plead guilty at the arraignment as you will throw yourself at the mercy of the Judge/Court. You need to speak to criminal lawyers in person or over the phone regarding the specifics of your case as many offer free consultations and consider retaining a local...

    Yes, a petition to seal and destroy the arrest record can be filed with the arresting agency pursuant to Penal Code section 851.8. If not granted, a petition would then need to be filed with the court and the Court will need to make a finding of factual innocence. The process normally takes anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to complete. You should speak to local criminal attorneys regarding your case as many offer free consultations.

    Yes, you need a lawyer. Talk to some criminal lawyers who are in Las Vegas (who are licensed in Nevada) regarding your case and the potential penalties as many criminal lawyers offer free consultations. You may want to repost this question in the Las Vegas criminal section so that you can get answers from attorneys familiar with the Court there.

Witness statements may need to be obtained. Speak with a wrongful death lawyer soon as many offer free consultations.

    It will depend on the outcome of your criminal case. If you are granted formal probation on your case you would likely be able to reside in the other state, however would likely need to go through interstate compact, and your home state would have to accept you and allow you to do the probation there. If you were granted summary probation/probation to the Court, you may be able to reside out of state without interstate compact. Also, restitution might not be the only punishment ordered, as...
