    You waited way too long before asking this question. Yes, you will most likely be held beyond your three day sentence. If the other county had done what they are supposed to do and put your warrant out to the statewide computers, and if your current county does what they are supposed to do and check you for warrants, then you will be held for up to ten additional days while extradition is discussed. You can hope that one or the other county makes a mistake, but in the future you should plan...

    You will probably never be charged. You don't need an attorney unless you either are charged (unlikely) or you want to file a lawsuit, in which case you should repost your question in the civil section. Your front yard is public, your backyard is not. Public means accessible to outsiders. The cops probably figured arresting you and letting you dry out in jail was an easy way to resolve their problem for the night. Sounds like an illegal arrest to me.

    A few things to consider: 1. A domestic violence arrest is only a strike if a deadly weapon was used. 2. If you are being told that he is facing a sentence of 6 years, he must only have one strike, Any felony conviction with 2 strike priors would result ina 25-to-life sentence. 3. A Romero motion is appropriate in cases where because of the passage of time (6 years is marginal) and the lack of any further criminal record (sounds like this is marginal in this case as well) the judge should...

  6. I was charged with misdemeanor petty theft, two items valued $150, first time, in CA. Will it be same charge for 1 or 2 items?

    The number of items is not legally relevant. What is relevant is the value and the intent of the taker. If you took items valued at 150 dollars you committed a petty theft, which can be charged as a misdemeanor or infraction st the discretion of the prosecutor. If the prosecutor can show you entered a building intending to steal they can also charge commercial burglary which us s felony.

    Police Officers can take a statement over the phone. There is no need for a sworn affidavit. Your friend should contact the police department where the event (the fraud) took place. They are the ones who would investigate any case. That office should be informed, however, of any other police agencies they may wish to contact with similar cases involving the same suspect.

    That's rough. You probably don't want to tell a judge that they are sentencing a mentally unstable person with a drug problem and a tendency to carry a gun. If a plea agreement results in probation and some term if days you may be able to "do your time" on an alternative program to jail including house arrest or working for the sherriff. Talk to the public defender's office about what is available in your area.

    Assuming you need to plead to a misdemeanor crime (488 petty theft), you can get an expungement (Cal Penal Code 1203.4) after you are off probation. If you have a good reason (job interviews) you can apply for early termination a little after the halfway point.

    One could demand trial by combat, however singular combat is no longer the rule. Therefore your team must do combat with the entire team representing the state. They can be recognized by their uniforms and badges. Failure to secure a win against the entirety of the opposing team will, of course, result in death.
