    The DAs in North court usually pull the deal when the case is set for trial. There is still an opportunity to settle the case but the offer may be increased. Depending on which judge you are in front of (potentially n8, of n7), you can request a court offer. You may be able to then get a reduced sentence or an opportunity to avoid jail time and get home confinement. The reason why you are not being offered a wet reckless is due to the fact that you had medication in your system. The...

    He violated the terms of his probation and his diversion program therefore the court can decide to terminate the diversionary program and sentence him to some jail time or whatever he had already agreed to. Alternatively? The court may decide to give him one more chance and reinstate him again and allow him more time to complete the necessary terms that your son originally agreed to. The best chance is to hire an attorney to advocate for another chance on behalf of your son or he may be...

    You can always get a ticket for a traffic infraction, whether it holds up in court when challenged is the question. Depending on the facts of your case (more detail would be needed), then there's a possibility that you could have a defense for the citation. You may want to consult with a traffic violations attorney.

    You need to speak with an attorney immediately because you are facing criminal charges that can affect your life. Theft crimes are crimes of moral turpitude and looked badly upon by employers. Not only that, but you can face a a maximum of 6 moths (for a petty theft) or up to a year in jail (for a commercial burglary). There can be mitigating circumstances, such as a lack of criminal record, and cooperation with the officers which may result in a good disposition for you. However, you need...

    My advise to clients is always to go with someone you feel comfortable with and who you believe will best represent you. If you feel that the public defender is not the best person to represent you, then you should hire a private attorney. Although you may be low on funds at the present time, many private attorneys will work with you and offer payment plans. As for taking the case to trial with the public defender and banking on being able to appeal it after, this is a risky choice....

  6. I received an arrest warrant in the mail yesterday for VC23152(A). Just exactly is that charge?

    VC 23152(a) is a DUI charge. Assuming that you were not arrested for another DUI recently, then the warrant is for failure to complete some term of probation. You should probably review the terms of probation that you agreed upon during your sentencing and determine if you have complied with all terms. You should also leave a message with your lawyer letting him or her know about the warrant.

  7. Can Police run your license plates at random with no probable cause and subsequently arrest you if you have a warrant?..

    Police can always run your license plate randomly and search for warrants. They usually do all the time whenever they are behind you. However, in order to pull you over, they must have reasonable suspicion that a crime is being committed. You cannot be pulled over simply to check to see if you are the person who has a warrant for your arrest. There has to be some other factor to confirm it. Usually, an officer will pull you over on a traffic violation as a pretext in order to pull you over...

    Most counties have the criminal cases online which provide the defendant's name as well as the charges. If you are unable to look it up though the online system, then you will be able to obtain that information through the court with the defendant's full name and date of birth. Having the docket number is a plus. You should have no problems obtaining the information since it is public record.

  9. Can I take care of a ticket written in LA (traffic) at the orange county homeless court

    Unfortunately, the Orange County Homeless Court does not have jurisdiction over LA county cases. You will have to settle your failure to appear in LA as well as the actual ticket. You need to handle the FTA as soon as possible because it will result in a hold to your license or ultimate license suspension.

  10. Is it true that if you have warrants and you get a job, the courts will find out and you could possibly be arrested at work???

    You can be arrested any time on a warrant. No one can definitively state whether or not you would be arrested at work, but you can be since the warrant allows law enforcement to arrest you on the spot until the warrant has been cleared. There are other issues that go along with having a failure to appear in court such as hold or suspension on your license. You should consult an attorney immediately and handle both cases before you are arrested.
