  • How long does it usually take for a parolee that has violated parole to see a judge?If he does see a judge.

    He cooperated when they took him so would that help him any?

    Stephanie’s Answer

    Parole violations are heard before a commissioner of the parole board, not a judge in criminal court. However, if the DA files new charges, you will be in criminal court for that. A parole violation could give you up to 1 additional year in prison. This would be separate from any time for the new crime, if any. The parole hearing is held within 10 days of you getting picked up on the new violation. Good luck!

    As my colleagues have indicated, the jails are overcrowded and many low level offenders are getting released early. Tell him to stay on his best behavior and not get into any trouble which would cause him to not be a candidate for early release.

    It really depends on the new case. If the new case is solid, then he could face time on the original. He could enter into a global resolution that lumps all the time together. He has 1 year and 8 months left on the original charge. If the DA wants time on the violation, it is unlikely he or she would ask for the entire remainder if seeking a plea deal. I'd be more concerned with the new case than the old one at this point. He really needs to discuss the specifics with his attorney. Good luck!

  • I got a petty theft infraction but was not fingerprinted. Will that effect a background check?

    I had to appear in court for a petty theft charge and got an infraction and had to pay a fine but was never finger printed. Is this in my favor for a background check? I am currently having a background check done for a retail job. The infrac...

    Stephanie’s Answer

    If you were arrested for petty theft as a misdemeanor, then it will still appear on your RAP sheet, despite the infraction plea. It would then show up if your employer did an thorough background check. However, if you were cited for it as an infraction and it never reached misdemeanor status, then you are likely in the clear. Good luck!

  • My brother was recently on parole he had two months left and got arrested on pc664/187(a) and pc4573.5,pc4573.6, pc667.5(b)

    And pc3056 how much time will he be facing hes been a year and hes till figthing his case.

    Stephanie’s Answer

    It really depends on the circumstances. If it is first degree attempt murder, he's facing life. If it's second degree, he's facing 9 years on that charge alone. He's been fighting this for a year, which means he has an attorney. He needs to discuss the strategies for his case, and possible sentencing scenarios with his attorney. Good luck!

  • WHAT DOES: TO SET HEARING AFTER REV MEAN?

    My brother went to jail the first time for Rob: 1st DEG:CAB/ETC/DWELL and THRTNCRIME: INT: TERRORIZE he also has a strike. He was going to do 5 years, but served only 3 months in county and got off on probation. While out there was a warrant f...

    Stephanie’s Answer

    Mr. Hill gave you a complete and thoughtful answer. "Hearing after Rev" likely means hearing after revocation. At this point, your brother's probation has been revoked due to the new arrest. The judge will now have the option to reinstate probation or not. Your brother should discuss with his attorney whether he wants to admit the violation and reinstate or have a full hearing. Good luck!

    There is some missing information here. Your friend needs to discuss his options with his attorney.

  • Picked up on a failure to appear warrant(drug charge), with a past prison record(not drug), what sentence are they looking at?

    My boyfriend has a past prison record (not for drug charges) & he recently got arrested for drugs. He went & checked in with probation but didn't start his prop 36 yet. He failed to return to court (he was stupid & forgot the date) & therefore wa...

    Stephanie’s Answer

    I agree with Mr. Broughton. Your boyfriend will be lucky if he's allowed back into Prop 36. Hopefully, because it is a first violation, this will happen. One of the reasons why it is smart to hire a private attorney is that we will remind you of court dates. The PDs office is too overwhelmed with clients to offer this service. Your boyfriend needs to be remorseful and humble at his courtdate and hopefully the judge will allow him back into Prop 36. Good luck!

  • I sold a truck I had wrecked over a year ago, I just got a 'overdue' notice for a parking ticket that is about as old.

    I am 99% sure I had sent the buyer change to the DMV right away, I have a stop insurance notice dated before the ticket was written and the officers accident report, I cannot find any other transfer or sales receipt from that time. DO I have a war...

    You will not be arrested for a parking ticket. There are fines imposed. Did you fill out the Release of Liability form and file it with the DMV? Did you maintain a copy? You could get copies from the DMV if so and use that to prove that it wasn't your car at the time of the ticket. As for civil action against the new owner of the car, it's probably not worth the trouble. Good luck.
