  • TICKET TURNED INTO WARRANT

    I GOT A TICKET FOR POSSESION OF MARIJUANA LESS THEN A GRAM A YEAR AGO AND FORGOT TO GO TO COURT FOR IT , NOW I HAVE A WARRANT FOR IT AND I WAS JUST WONDERING HOW MUCH MY FEES ARE GONNA BE AND WHAT I HAVE TO DO TO GET RID OF IT AND PAY IT OFF

    Pante-a’s Answer

    You have to go to court to have the warrant recalled. You can hire an attorney to appear on your behalf. Depending on what court your case is out of you may be eligible to get the case dismissed. If the ticket is charged as an infraction and you are under 21 there may be some consequences on your driving privileges. I would recommend hiring an attorney. If you would like to discuss this matter in further detail, please do not hesitate to contact our office. 714.378.8880

  • I was caught shoplifting at macy, this was my first time.

    Lost prevention and police asked me questions but I told them everything. so they have their evidents agaisnt me. what should i do on court date

    Pante-a’s Answer

    There are options with shoplifting charges. In some cases charges can be reduced to an infraction or charges can be dismissed with a deferred entry of judgment. Even if you have confessed, depending on whether this is your first time, and what court your case is out of, you may be able to get the charges dismissed. You should not post all details on a public website. You should contact and consult with some attorneys in your area, give them the specific details about your case and see what they can do for you. Most attorneys do a free consultation and are available to speak with you after hours.

  • Got a warrant for failure to comply with court order. How likely is it that I will I be arrested when I appear?

    failure to pay off fine & restitution, combined remaining total is approx. $250-$300. I am on unsupervised probation which ends in March 2013.

    Pante-a’s Answer

    Not paying your fines and/or restitution is considered a violation of probation. Whether you will be taken into custody when you go to court depends on what court your case is out of and the courtroom. Technically you can be taken into custody because you have failed to pay on time, however if you go in with the total amount you owe, depending on the courtroom, the Judge may cut you a break and not give you any jail time. If you can afford an attorney, it might be helpful to have the attorney go to court for you and get the warrant recalled.

  • I showed up in court today for my DUI and was informed that "there was no filing on my case." What does this mean?

    2 months ago, I took an Ambien and went to sleep. I woke up in jail and don't remember a thing. Apparently, I "sleepdrove" a few blocks and hit a parked car. I am being charged with a 3rd DUI, but my BAC was 0.00 and I'm in AA and have been sob...

    Pante-a’s Answer

    You should ask the prosecutor why they have not filed. They may have not filed yet because they havent received the police report. Or maybe its due to a backlog of paperwork. Usually a DUI of this nature is a misdemeanor, meaning they have one year to file the case. Usually they will send you a notice to appear when the case is filed. You should check with the District Attorney or City Attorney's office once every 2 to 3 weeks to check the status of filing, unless they tell you they haven't filed for lack of sufficient evidence.

  • Pulled over for traffic violation. Officer said I have warrant from 24 years ago; what do I need to do to take care of this?

    Warrant is in a San Mateo County and it is for Petty Theft for $1500. I do not recall this at all - I got married and had a child that year and I was definitely not doing any petty theft.

    Pante-a’s Answer

    You should seek counsel in the County in which the case is based. Have the lawyer re-call the warrant. You may even have a good motion to get the case dismissed because it has been so long. You should definitely seek out the help of an attorney.
