Just need to know how much time a person can get
It depends. Are they acting alone? Do they have a weapon? Is the weapon a firearm? If so, any shots fired or anyone shot?
Are any employees tied up, forced in a back room or injured? Is money taken from more than one teller?
Is this a simple passing of a note or is this a takeover robbery like in the movie Heat?
Is it prosecuted by the local officials or the Feds?See question
Someone peed on my car intentionally and would like to press charges what are the steps and what can I do? I have 2 videos that show the person doing it.
It's not up to you to "press" charges. You can make a police report and if the DA thinks there is a case, they will file criminal charges.
It's not vandalism if there is no damage. It may be some other offense such as peeing in public or trespassing, but vandalism requires damage.
You could also sue for the value of a car wash and/or seek a restraining order.See question
and the reason for the conclusion. I want to know the name and location of the proper court and why.
There are four courthouses in Orange County. If the crime occurred in Orange, they feed into the Central Justice Center in Santa Ana. Why? Because they split them up into different geographic regions.
You can see the case information by searching the online case access on the court website - occourts.orgSee question
What steps do I take? and what are the requirements?
I know that around all the Orange County jails, there are fliers posted for jail weddings. Have you looked around the jail to see if any are posted there? Or - check with the sheriff's department about how to proceed. You'll need a marriage license as well.See question
A 40 year old brain damaged man, with the mentality of a 6 year old, has been institutionalized since he was 6. Without asking permission, he made a phone call to an attorney (another patient gave him the number), and "hired" him over the phone t...
There are so many issues with what you wrote...
First, if the legal fees are anticipated to exceed $1,000, the State Bar requires a written retainer agreement. You didn't mention one here.
And given the son's mental capacity, it's apparent they wouldn't be found responsible, as they don't have the mental capacity to enter into a contractual relationship. And finally, just because someone says that someone else will pay doesn't obligate the other person to anything. If that were the case, I'd be down at my local Tesla dealer ordering a new car and telling them that President Obama will pay.See question
Prosecutor in a misdemeanor trial asks the judge to exclude all references to a prior civil suit his client was involved in with the defendant. Defense attorney says his client's win in that suit is relevant to this current proceeding. The judge ...
Some more context may help. If it was an inadvertent mention of the civil suit and nothing more was followed upon, the door may not have been truly opened. If it was litigated before the start of the trial and there was to be absolutely no mention of it at all, then it could have caused a mistrial. Or it could have opened the door, but it was still excluded for other grounds (See Evidence Code section 352 re evidence that can be relevant but excluded for a variety of reasons, including it being unduly time consuming, overly prejudicial, etc.)
Even if the door wasn't opened all the way if there was something said that could be quickly and directly disproven as a way of impeachment, that could have been a possible outcome...
But it's not just a blanket rule and would really depend on the facts of the case, the relevance of the civil suit, how/what/why you wanted to get into things, etc.See question
If i go to a follow up pre trial hearing and was already offered a deal at arraignment, a maybe a different DA this time, do they GENERALLY (emphasis) honor what was said before or do we start all over again in your expierence? How does my pub...
If you're looking for some very general generalities...
Plea deals are typically within the same range at the same level of the case. For example, in a felony case, a deal is generally offered pre-preliminary hearing, but if you go to prelim, there's no guarantee you'll get the same offer. Then, there's often a pre-trial offer. If you go to trial, obviously all bets are off.
If an offer isn't accepted, the DA does not have to re-extend it or "keep it open" unless they specifically say they will. As far as trying to get the same deal from a subsequent different DA... it depends. Some DAs will say this is "their" offer only and if you don't accept, their colleagues are not obligated to honor it. Others say that they'll make the offer and put notes in the file to keep it open or that you were considering it and it would be good until the next court date - something like that.
And of course, some DAs will make an offer and put no notes in the file, so you're starting from scratch. If they didn't put any notes in the file, hopefully your lawyer did. From there, it's a matter of reputation and honesty. DAs and defense attorneys strike deals on a handshake and there has to be some level of trust between both sides so that when an offer is extended, it will be honored. If your lawyer doesn't have a reputation for honesty, the DA may not trust their representation as to what the offer was. File notes from the previous date may help... or they may not change the DA's mind. Of course, your lawyer can contact the previous DA and see if they'll confirm the terms of the offer.
Now, back to your situation...
You had an offer at arraignment. Often, that's a "settle it right here, right now" offer and it may not be valid at pretrial. Seems kind of cruddy to do that - they expect you to just plead guilty without even looking at the police reports and discussing with your lawyer more than just 5 minutes? But they can set the terms of the offer. You may get the same deal re-extended at your next court date if you really want it.
Of course, you lawyer will know all the details and the personalities involved. Best of luck.See question
I'm out on bail for assault with a deadly weapon I been fighting this case for 1 year and 4 months or so , and a day ago I got my first dui VC23152 (a) and PC148(a)(1) I have court on December 8 and I'm just wondering what I would expect I wanna a...
For a standard first DUI, there typically is no jail time imposed. It's fines, fees, classes and probation. The 148 complicates it somewhat and the facts of the case (don't post details online) will matter. If there is jail time, imposed you could potentially do house arrest, but if you're convicted of the assault worth a deadly weapon, you aren't eligible for it.
First - you (or your lawyer) must contact the DMV within 10 days of your arrest to request a hearing or they can automatically suspend your license.
Next - and this is the bigger issue... The other case you're out on bail for. You didn't specify if it was a felony or a misdemeanor. Either way - this new allegation and arrest could constitute a "change in circumstances" that would allow the judge to increase bail on the 245 charge and take you into custody unless you posted the increased amount.
Or maybe not.
Talk to your lawyer about the 245 and let them know about the DUI arrest so they aren't caught off guard. Don't dorget the 10 day window to contact the DMV. Get a lawyer for the new case.See question
