In 2010 i was just getting out of the Marine corps while visiting friends in Idaho, i regretfully ended up getting a Dui, hit and run unattended vehicle and failure to stop ..during this time i was very young and my father had just passed away ..i...
It cannot be transferred to California since CA and ID have very different laws. You should talk to a lawyer in ID, though. They might be able to resolve this for you without traveling all the way back there.
The statute of limitations probably won't help you. The SoL refers to the time between the commission of the crime and the filing of charges. Since charges were filed within a reasonable time after the crime occurred, you're probably out of luck.
You might still benefit from the passage of time, though. There's a good chance that evidence has disappeared, witnesses have become unavailable, and police officers involved in the investigation have retired or left the department.
Again, I'd encourage you to contact a lawyer in ID. Have you tried speaking with the person who previously represented you in the case?See question
I'm out of state and have few details of the arrest - just name, date, charge and agency. I do know there was no trial or conviction, but not if the case was dismissed or dropped . I've found forms for Superior Court searches but they seem to as...
You can request a copy of your criminal history report from the California Dept of Justice in Sacramento. The website is oag.ca.gov. Follow the links on the right side of the page for instructions regarding how to do this. Basically, you need to print out a form and take the form to your local police station. The police will take your fingerprints, then they'll send your form and your fingerprints to the Dept of Justice. The Dept of Justice will use your prints to search their database of old cases.See question
I was arrested for a DUI in May. I have a lawyer and and have not been convicted, but I was wondering if this will still prevent me from entering Canada while on vacation.
It definitely could. Canadian authorities will see that you have a DUI arrest and they'll want to know how the case was resolved. Since it has not been resolved, that could be a good reason to deny you entry. Try speaking someone from the local Canadian consulate.See question
Recently i got my gf out of jail but the charges against her were so minor that i feel that the DA just dropped the case. I paid the attorney 3k for their services but do I have a right to get some of my money back if I feel that he doesnt deserve...
It's hard to say without a lot more information. I can almost guarantee that the retainer agreement you signed states that the fee is non-refundable.
Did the DA actually drop the case against your girlfriend? Or did they simply decline to file it in the first place? Did your attorney appear in court, file any documents, or perform any other services?See question
I was found guilty of the misdemeanor vandalism and ordered to pay restitution by Oct 14.2015 I currently do not have the funds, when I go to court can I be arrested? I was found not guilty on the felony threat charge can I sue the other party for...
Talk to your lawyer regarding the restitution issue. Your probation will not be violated for an inability to pay restitution (if you can prove that you really don't have the money). You should be prepared to complete financial declarations to demonstrate your inability to pay at this time.
It's very difficult to successfully sue someone for making a false police report against you, especially since you were convicted of the vandalism charge.See question
I have inherited land of 16 acres in West Virginia and would Love to move there and put down roots because I no longer have relatives nor my husband in Bakersfield, CA. and we can't afford to live here any longer anyway. Nobody will hire me either...
Have him ask his probation officer about an "Interstate Compact". It's basically an agreement that should allow him to leave the state subject to a few conditions.See question
I've known this person about five years. She's horrible in money management, so I ask her to sign a paper so stating she owed me the money which she agreed to do. In trying to set up an appointment the other night she suddenly got an attitude...
If you're seeking less than $10,000, you can take her to small claims court. I predict that you'll probably have a hard time collecting a judgement from someone who doesn't have the money, but that's probably your only legal option.See question
Complaint was filed with a nearby sheriff's department but did not result in arraignment by the county DA. Still, we had to retain attorney to intercede-monitor case and to be on standby if arraignment resulted. Fortunately, that did not happen. ...
I agree with the previous answer. It is very difficult to prove that this family member was intentionally lying. Just because the DA declined to file a case does not necessarily mean that the report was completely baseless.
Even if you were to somehow win a small claims judgement against this person, you'll likely spend a lot of time and a small fortune trying to enforce it.
If you want to avoid any more family estrangement, I'm not sure suing a family member is the most advisable course of action.See question
I was arrested in Arizona for stolen vehicle. The next day their investigators took a statement from the victim stating it was a misunderstanding and wanted charges dropped. I have been to court 3 times since then and I still had to be bailed ou...
It really depends on what other evidence they have. It's common for prosecutors to push ahead even when a victim recants if they believe that they can still win a conviction.
What is your relationship with the victim? I'm guessing that he / she is a family member or a close friend? They probably reported their car stolen, you were caught driving it, and now they've decided that they don't want you to end up in prison. Am I close?
Unfortunately, it's not the victim's place to decide how the DA will pursue your case. If the DA believes that you have committed a crime against the People of the State of Arizona, they will still prosecute you, even if the victim has changed his / her mind.See question
My friend and i sub leased at an apartment but the leasing office never knew we were there. They told my friend rent was 450 utilities included he payed 450 and we were living in the front room. And the day before we move they tell us we need to p...
Who is threatening you? The apartment manager? Or the guy you were subleasing the room from?
I obviously haven't read your contracts, but I would bet everything I've ever owned that the rental agreement specifically prohibited the tenant from subleasing rooms without the consent of the property manager.
Of course the apartment manager has the authority to enforce the lease agreements and to evict people who don't belong there.See question
