  • My husband is in custody these are his charges a 470pc, 484 (A)pc, 211pc, 459pc 2nd dgr, and 3455pc how much time is he facing?

    He says they will drop some charges! Also California jails/prisons are overcrowded.

    Jill’s Answer

    The amount of time that he is facing depends on a variety of factors. You are correct that California is having issues regarding overcrowding. In fact, new laws now have those who would have gone to prison for a lot of matters, serving their time in local county jail. Hopefully, your husband will get minimal time in local jail, but the max he could get would be prison time, based on what you have described.

    You can file a complaint with his department. If you feel that that does not work, and you think that the parole agent is doing something illegal, or even just wrong, you could always notify the Inspector General's Office regarding the situation, and request that they investigate.

  • I was charged for possession and possession with intent to sale on Jan . 18 . but wasn't arrested til just two days ago .

    nor was i read my rights until the next morning at first appearance. what should i do?

    Jill’s Answer

    You should talk to a lawyer. The police do not need to read you your Miranda Rights, unless you are "in custody" (i.e. not free to leave), and they are interrogating you. If both of these things occurred, and you made admissions, then there may be possibility that your statements could be excluded. If you remained silent (which hopefully you did), then there is probably not an issue. The police are allowed to wait two days (up to three years in California for felonies, and one year for misdemeanors) to investigate the case against you before charges are brought.

  • If I am being charged with residential burglary a couple times. But I haven't been to prison once in my life how much jail time?

    I commuted the crime or crimes because I was addicted to pills percolate 30 and I haven't been to prison in my life . And I think I don't have many points how much jail time am I to facing ? Wat can I do to get less jail time ?

    Jill’s Answer

    Unfortunately, Residential Burglary is a very serious crime. However, if you have not been in trouble in the past, you could be in luck to get probation, and maybe some local jail time. You mentioned that you were addicted to pills at the time. It may be possible to get some drug treatment first, if you feel you have a problem, and that is why you committed the crimes. The important thing is that you admit that you have a problem and seek help - courts appreciate this. The goal of the criminal justice system is to "punish" those who commit crimes, but also to rehabilitate and make the community safer. Therefore, the court may offer drug treatment in lieu of time in jail - at least at first, if you mess up with the treatment, they could punish you even harsher than before.

    I would suggest that you hire an attorney. There's an old adage that says, "An attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client."

  • Is there more to just filing out packet 1203.4 for a misdemeanor dismissal (DUI)?

    I was convicted of a DUI three years ago. All fines and fees have been paid off. Alcohol abuse program has been completed and paid as well. I Have not been in trouble since and most importantly have not violated my probation. Which is now over. ...

    Jill’s Answer

    Keep in mind that even if you get the DUI "off your record," it will still be there if you get a second DUI within 10 years of that first DUI. This means that a second DUI in 10 years will cause you to be exposed to greater fines and fees, a longer license suspension, and greater jail time.

  • I recieved a court date for a trafic violation in a accident do i have to go to court?

    i ran a red light and accept that i am guilty i just want to pay the fine and not go to court becuase i wont be in town but i wont be able to make it becuase im going back to my home country in South Africa

    Jill’s Answer

    Usually, you can just send in the payment, and you do not have to go to court. Call the court listed on your ticket, and the clerk should be able to tell you where to send the money.
