  • Can a criminal defense attorney use facebook posts to reduce their clients sentence?

    A friend of mine was killed by a drunk driver at an illegal street race. He is being charged with vehicular manslaughter and causing bodily injury. Someone just said that they can use facebook comments and posts to reduce their clients sentence....

    William’s Answer

    First, very sorry to hear about your friend. But, depending on what was posted, and by which person, yes: Facebook posts can be evidence and admissible in certain circumstances. If you have information - from facebook or elsewhere - you should contact your own attorney or the DA's office. Good luck.

  • Entry into UK with 4 year old DUI yes or no

    My son has a 4 year old DUI on his record he is planning a trip to England will his DUI keep him from entering the country?

    William’s Answer

    This should not be a problem, as long he properly took care of everything and there is not active warrant for him, etc. To be on the safe side, you may want to confer with an experienced immigration attorney BEFORE he leaves the country on his trip. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    Sounds like you're lucky to be walking free now, and the attorney did a very good job to secure your initial freedom here. Have you actually hired - paid - him/her yet? If the attorney hasn't be retained by you yet, then he/she cannot act on your behalf and get records etc.

  • What happens to defendant in Traffic case over a ticket, if defendant loses Jury Trial (in Orange County Traffic Court)? ...

    ... Does defendant have to pay court fees & attorneys' fees? I know that the court keeps the bail amount, but are there any other different/extra penalties?

    William’s Answer

    My colleagues are correct: there are no juries and no such fees in traffic/infraction cases. You can hire your own lawyer to represent you if you like, but you won't have to any one else's lawyer fees. Good luck.

    In 2008 just before I left the US to travel I had friends dog off leash at the beach. I told the cop that friends who owned them& got a ticket for dogs off leach & giving a false name. The court date was set for a time I would be out of the countr...

    William’s Answer

    You should hire a good, local attorney to get this on calendar for you, to get the warrant recalled (so you don't spend anymore time in jail), and to show proof of your compliance years ago.... otherwise this will continue to haunt you. The judge is going to be upset with you for twice failing to appear in court - and the court does not care about your vacation plans. This is serious. Get a lawyer. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    You definitely need to hire a good, local criminal defense attorney right away; there are many good ones here on avvo.com. It is not the probation dept's job to tell you 'why,' and even then, they probably don't know. Get a good lawyer to advise you, get to the bottom of this, and file a proper motion. Good luck.

  • Can i be able to argue a speeding ticket in court?

    So I got pulled over for "speeding" and the officer said I was going 50 mph on a 35 street when I know I was not but then changed his story all around and wrote on my ticket and put 50 then scratched it out put 45 on a 30 mph street.

    William’s Answer

    You always have the right to fight it. But you need to focus on your argument, any witnesses, and chance of success, and weigh that against possibly just resolving it by going to traffic school (which can be a good option, if you're eligible.) Consulting with a good, local attorney is always a good idea, too. Good luck.
