The statute of limitations on most felonies is three years and can be longer in fraud cases, but it appears that legally speaking they can charge you. Whether they can prove this or not is another story, but the bottom line is you'll need a good local criminal defense attorney.
In the mean time, do NOT discuss this with anyone and gather any paperwork you have connected to your worker's compensation claim, injuries, etc.
Get a lawyer.
The attorney did the right thing. They cannot assist in someone's illegal activities - even negotiating a lease.
If it's illegal where you want to do this, why are you proceeding? You'll be raided, shut down and prosecuted in no time, losing your money, medicine and potentially your freedom.
You have got to be kidding. You're asking if it would be okay for an adult to intentionally best a 12 year old.
You could easily face felony charges and be sued for everything you have.
I'm really hoping this is not a serious question.
The court would have to appoint the Public Defender. Your current attorney would have to be relieved by the court. The judge may wonder how you hired an attorney to start, but are now claiming to be indigent.
The only way you can figure out who you want to represent you and what arrangements you can reach is to start narrowing down your options & start meeting to discuss your case.
You may want to consider continuing your arraignment in department C5 for that purpose rather than entering a not guilty plea and starting time frames running.
You posted under tr criminal defense category, but it sounds as though you didn't do anything and won't face any criminal charges. If I misread that and you were in fact arrested or cited, then contact a criminal attorney for a consultation.
If you're asking what can be done about the conduct of the store security, that's a different matter. Yes, they are allowed to detain somebody they suspect of theft, but if they acted unreasonably, there may be an issue. The question will be - what are...
The one day sentence (commonly called a book and release) was a common sentence for theft offenses. Why? Because the law used to be that a person with a prior conviction for theft AND having been sentenced to any term of imprisonment could have a new petty theft elevated to a felony under Penal Code 666. [the law changed and it now takes 3 priors where you served at least a day on at least one of them.]
Yes, your record will show the one day sentence.
To see how your official DOJ (...
The new DUI will be another felony carrying up to 3 years in custody. He can face an additional year for each time he's been sentenced to prison and hasn't remained out of prison custody for at least 5 years.
He essentially has three options: 1. Fight the current DUI with any legal or factual defenses he may have; 2. he's headed back to custody for a good chunk of time or 3. He needs to understand the huge problem he has with alcohol and take every step towards getting and staying...
Hypotheticals are always difficult to deal with. You change one detail, it changes the whole scenario and the whole analysis.
A person who says no and does not harbor criminal intent is not criminally liable.
If this is beyond a hypothetical and somebody has been arrested and/or charged, it's time for a lawyer.
