    In most states, if your case occured when you were a minor and it was "deferred" and later dismissed, then it should not appear on your criminal record. If it is still in your "history" then you should contact a lawyer in your hometown and have him pull your file with court permission and investigate what they file it still in your history. Check with a local lawyer as to whether your case was resolved in a manner that should mean that it should not be part of your record. Best of luck....

    A felony charge in most states will potentially subject you to going to state prison. It is critical you immediately seek the guidance of a local experienced criminal defense attorney in your town. This lawyer can advise you whether it was legal to raise the charges you are facing to a felony charge. In most cases the prosecutor can use their discretion to charge something more serious than what you were initially arrested for. However, that is why you need to speak to a local criminal defense...

  3. I need professional knowledge on a very serious case please

    You should contact the local bar association in the county in your state where the case was filed. It is possible that the bar association has criminal defense attorneys willing to take a case on to review it and to see if the plea can be set aside. It is critical you speak to a local lawyer soon as there may be deadlines involved to attempt to withdraw a plea. Not being from your state, I would not be able to give you specific answers but you should contact local lawyers in your area for help....

    In most states if you are asked to sign your traffic ticket and you refuse the police officer can take you into custody and you will have to post bail. To be certain you should check with a local Idaho lawyer but when asked to sign a citation you should be very careful before refusing. Best of luck.

    In most states the test for custody is what is in the "best interest of the minor child". The fact that you have a prior criminal conviction (if you do) for growing marijuana is not a good thing. However, in most states it would be only one factor in your case and should not be the controlling factor if you have turned your life around and there is no current evidence you are involved in illegal activity. It is critical you consult with a local lawyer in your town to ask them the laws where...

    I have been a criminal defense attorney for 30 plus years. I do not know of any law that would allow your husbands case to be transferred from Georgia to South Dakota. However, you should contact a local lawyer in Georgia and see if that lawyer could appear in court for your husband without him having to appear. Best of luck.

    From what you have said it appears that the lawyer for your son should be able to obtain this "discovery evidence" you speak of. However, from your question it doesnt appear that your son has a lawyer defending him in court. Hopefully in your state, a lawyer will be appointed for your son, if you cannot afford to hire one for him. My advise would be to immediately contact a local criminal defense attorney in the County where you reside and ask for their guidance. You should not be going to...

    You should consult with a local criminal defense attorney in Seattle on this matter. Every traffic court is different and local lawyers will likely know what valid defenses there are in the court you are going to that will help you prevail on your case. Some of the defenses you claim seem like they might be very good possible defenses to the charges. However, what might work and what wont work will be a question you definitely should ask of a local lawyer. Best of luck., Disclaimer: This...

  9. If you bail out of jail is it true that you have to provide your own lawyer for you own defense, what if you are on low income

    In every state, there are different rules relating to when someone can receive a court appointed lawyer. In most states the standard is whether the person "can afford to retain their own lawyer" or not. The fact that your daughter bailed out of jail does not mean in most states she would not be able to get a court appointed lawyer. IF she does not have the ability to pay for a lawyer then the court will likely be required by law to provide her with a lawyer. The charges against her appear to...

    Tge answer to your question depends upon whether you were prosecuted for the crime. If you were prosecuted, did you have a lawyer when you went to court? Did you plead guilty? If you plead guilty you should consult with a lawyer in Fort Mill, where you apparantly reside to discuss the possibility of moving to withdraw your guilty plea. Every state has it own specific laws and that is why you need a local lawyer to assist you. Best of luck. Disclaimer: This answer is provided as a public...
