    Thank you due sharing. I do these kinds if 1203.3 reductions quite a bit (I specialize, so u suppose us be part if the 20%) and you are correct. The reduction also restores the right to own a gun, and to sit on a jury.

    There is no special scientific scale for how much evidence is enough to put a person in prison. Enough evidence means that the prosecutor convinces a jury of 12 laypeople that your son should be found guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt." "Do they need witnesses?" No. "Do they need fingerprints?" No. "Don't they need some kind of scientific evidence other than his being there?" Really really, there is ABSOLUTELY no requirement for the prosecutor to meet other than convincing twelve people to convict.

    After a police officer writes a report it is reviewed by their superiors and then forwarded to the local prosecutors office. A lawyer for that office will decide if charges are brought or not. The standard of proof in all criminal cases is the same, that is, in order for you to be guilty a jury must be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that you meet the elements that make up the crime. In the case of residential burglary this means that you went into a home without permission with the intent...

    If your cell phone was really dead no one could use it... But that's a boring answer so let's move on. If your cell phone worked and was not password locked the police could search through it. If it was password locked they would need a warrant. That's what has been decided by the Supreme Court.

    Lol. Classic law school question. No, you cannot boobytrap your land. The idea is that it might someday harm police or other people that may try to gain access for legal means. There are also use of force issues.

    It depends. The District Attorneys's Office can request an arrest warrant from a judge, or they can decide to cite the person by letter to appear in court. For a theft crime I would usually exist the later, but not always. There is no time frame. As soon as an arrest warrant is granted the peson can be arrested. Could be within hours if law enforcement cares enough and can find the person quickly. Weeks if not.

    A defendant is owed a bail hearing at the beginning of the case, and they may make a motion for reconsideration of this initial ruling if there is a change in circumstances. Examples of changes in circumstances include charges being dropped or changed, the sudden illness of a family member, or delays in the case that ate not the fault if the defendant. A claim of innocence is NOT grounds for a bail reduction. A more complete discussion of bail can be found on my website www.hagopuanlawoffice.com

    Yes. First of all a juvenile conviction would not prevent you from owning a firearm (there are a few non-relevant exception) Second of all, only a criminal conviction would affect your gun rights, and your case was dropped. You're good to go for a background check.
