    You can only get in trouble for either violating one of the parole terms, or breaking the law. If there is no term barring him from speaking to other parolees (and I have never heard of such a term being imposed) and if there is no gang term that would get in the way, I don't see a problem. The jail/prison will not let a felon physically visit, but they could talk over the phone or via letter. You should know that both are monitored by the guards.

    Part of his probation terms probably say that he cannot use marijuana whether or not he has a recommendation. He would need to go to court to get that condition modified. Unless he has a very good reason for wanting to use, that request will be denied. Perhaps if no other medication would work, and he could a doctor to write a letter...

    Strictly speaking, if it was a felony, you were charged with commercial burglary. You can get your juvenile record sealed when you turn 18, have served out the sentence, paid any money owed to the court, and completed any classes etc. ordered by the court.

    The next time it happens, ask the officer for his name and badge number and file a complaint with his office. The next time after that, same thing. The next time after that, same thing. At that point you can reasonably think about talking to a an attorney about filing a lawsuit, with enough paper to back your allegations.

    Not to be a wise guy but it depends on what you are being charged with. I can't give you a complete overview of realignment, but there are a few highlights: 1. All cases that fall into realignment are served out at half time. This means that (unless you get into trouble in the jail) you will only serve half of your sentence. Different crimes have different sentences. I've seen inmates serving 10 year terms locally (they were convicted of a whole string of felonies). 2. The cirmes that fall into...

  6. Does DA have a time frame to submit bail enhancement on secondary charge .Primary still pending

    It sounds to me (apparently I'm the only one) like you are saying the DA added an "out on bail enhancement" to add a further potential 2 years to your felony sentence, and NOT that they are trying to raise your actual bail. Such an enhancement is proper when you commit one felony while being out of custody on another felony. There is no specific time frame for filing this enhancement except for the statute of limitations on the underlying crime. In your case that would be more than two years...

    Smoking in public is an infraction. Had you given the officer your identification he could not have searched or detained you further than writing the citation. Since you refused he was given the right to detain you in irdervto effect the citation. Bad move bro.

    There are TWO things that restrict your actions after a domestic violence convcition. 1. It was probably a term of your probation that you stay away from the victim. Once probation is terminated, this is no longer an issue. 2. The Court usually will give a SEPARATE order called a Domestic Violence Restraining Order that prevents you from contacting the victim. Violation of this order is a crime. This order usually lasts for three years, so if you are off probation the odds are that the...

    Your recourse is to file a civil rights lawsuit. A civil trial, like a criminal trial, involves the calling of witnesses. You will say one thing, and the police officers will say something else. It doesn't sound good for you unless you have a witness or video.

    The answer depends on what the warrant is for and how paying money will solve that problem. You need to give more information, either to us or to a live lawyer.
