    In the State of California inheritance is considered the separate property of the person receiving it. Therefore, the answer to all questions is no.

    Any charge of resisting arrest is going to be a battle of witnesses between the cop and the defendant. I don't think Miranda will be relevant in yout case, however. When the police fail to read a person their Miranda Rights after arresting them, the result is that the prosecution is not allowed to use statements that the defendant makes. The charges are NOT, as many wrongly believe, dismissed. As for the charge of being drunk in public, the officer will need to testify that you were so...

    Can they reduce it to an infraction? Yes. Do they have to reduce it? No. In the state of California (and all other states whose laws I am aware of) any theft of a thing of even slight value is presumed to be a misdemeanor unless it is so valuable as to make it a "grand" theft whereupon it becomes a felony. If they reduce the charge against you from a misdemeanor to an infraction it will probably be because they don't want to do the trial, and you have no previous record. Under those...

    If the felony convictions were for wobbler offenses (crimes that can be charged either as misdemeanors or felonies) then as part if your expungement you should have, and probably did, ask them to be reduced to misdemeanors. Insurance fraud covers a wide range of offenses. I can't tell you if they could be, or were, reduced to misdemeanors. If they were, your gun rights have been restored because you are Not a convicted felon. If not, you may have a very large fight ahead if you want to get your...

    Yes and No. Maybe. That statute reads: 22010. Except as provided in Section 22015 and Chapter 1 (commencing with Section 17700) of Division 2 of Title 2, any person in this state who manufactures or causes to be manufactured, imports into the state, keeps for sale, or offers or exposes for sale, or who gives, lends, or possesses any nunchaku is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year or imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170.

  6. How difficult (relatively speaking) is it to prove that a judge during trial was acting as an advocate for the prosecution?

    Virtually impossible. Considering that the judge ruled in favor of your lawyer's request, the chance that you will be able to show judicial misconduct is almost nonexistant (though of course I don't have all of the facts). In an apporpirate case an appeal may be based on inneffective assistance of counsel. In such a case the burden of proof would be on you to show that the lawyer acted below the expected standard of attorneys in his area. The burden of proof would also be on you to show...

    Ignore this attempt at petty thievery by lawyer. You will NEVER be sued and despite the law firms intentionally misleading suggestions that your bowing to their threats will have ANY effect on whether or not you are charged with a crime the FACT is it will make no difference. Ignore the letters. You don't need a lawyer right now either, because the reality is it is very unlikely you will ever be charged unless you were arrested on scene. Wait for a few tense months. If you don't get a letter...

  9. Can I be a police officer in CA with a 17 PC and 1203.4 PC on my record? For all purpose, can i answer "no" on the conviction ?

    You reduced the felony per California Penal Code 17(b) and then expunged it purusant to California Penal Code 1203.4. No, you cannot answer "no" on your application. There are specific exclusions to the power of expungment under 1203.4 and the applicaiton for work in law enforcement is one of them. You will need to tell them about your conviction (they will see it on your record). This doesn't mean that you can't be a police officer. I would call whatever agency you eventually want to...

    What raises a red flag to me is when you say she is "trying" to get a driver's license. This implies that she is having problems there, possibly having to do with an old warrant. Your sister needs to check in with the juvenile court and see if this is the case, or if her matter was simply ignored for all these years. A juvenile record will make a difference to employment with the police, and unfortunately a person who does not comply with the terms of probation probably cannot have their...
