    I know many public defenders who are very good attorneys, however, they have tremendous case loads and often do not have time to give great service to their clients. My office is in Fullerton which is very close to you and I would be happy to discuss this matter with you.

    Is there a court order in place defining the terms of custody? if so, does that order specify drop off and pick-up locations? If he has made physical threats, you may want to file for a restraining order, (which does not physically protect you, it is just a piece of paper, so be careful). Often, pick-up and drop-off transfers can be ordered to occur at public places or at police or sheriff stations to insure that things do not get out of control. The bottom line is that there needs to be...

    It would be helpful to know what the investigation is about. 18 months sounds like a long time for nothing to be happening, and if there is not enough evidence to charge him, (I am not sure how you know this, many people believe there is not enough evidence, but without actually seeing any valid evidence gathered from the search warrant and assuming the warrant was valid in the first place, it would be impossible to form an opinion whether there is enough evidence to charge him). I believe...

    As Mr. Dane pointed out, there is more information needed. If the informant is working with law enforcement, there is probably enough cause to make the stop. Then the search issue comes into play. Was consent given to search the car? Was there an arrest and then a search incident to the arrest may be valid. A criminal defense attorney would be able to analyze the facts research case law and answer your questions. Without further details I do not believe any attorney would be able to give a...

    Do not talk to the police under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES without an attorney present. They will use your answers of questions they may ask against you, and they are very good at asking questions that will implicate you in whatever incident they are investigating. Do not ignore the matter, as this may lead to even more problems. Hire an attorney to deal with the police for you. If you ignore it, and the matter is serious enough they will come with a warrant, either to search your property, (car,...

  7. Will a DV TRO show up on background check if applying for a job involving children?

    I agree with my colleagues that it would be prudent for you to order your own Live Scan report. If the potential employer is in fact conducting "an extensive background check," it will probably show up. If you believe it will, your best bet is to disclose the situation and offer an explanation. If you try to hide it, and the potential employer finds it, the deception is probably far worse than having retaliatory TRO's filed and dismissed.

    Not necessarily. There is always somewhat of a cat and mouse game between the District Attorney's office and the defense. The District Attorney wants a conviction, and will make an offer to get that early. Typically, the longer the case continues the less favorable the offer. Felonies are serious matters, and I would suggest that the defendant retains private counsel, or deals with a Public Defender. Private counsel will probably have more time to dedicate to the case, and may analyze the...

  9. Is there a statute of limitations on asking for an expungement of a criminal record in California?

    There is no time limit, and you are correct that it may be best to get the conviction reduced to a misdemeanor, (by filing a 17(b) motion), and then expunged (a 1203.4 motion). Both motions can be heard at the same court appearance. Understand however that after the expungement a full background check may still show the conviction. The expungement will possibly allow for not having to disclose the conviction to private employers on job applications, but government agencies and licensing...

    Immediately contact the police. You will probably need to contact the police department where the alleged incident took place, but if that requires some travel, contact your local police department to get a advice. Your allegation is very serious, and at this point, you need to contact the police so they can investigate and protect against any future occurrences. Once the facts are fleshed out, the District Attorney's office can decide whether any criminal charges are warranted. At some...
