cause them bodily harm could this be a law. Thanks for help.
The governmentw will not legislate as to one person only, but there are restraining orders that can be issued by the court preventing one person from annoying or harassing another person. Also, in probation conditions the court almost always orders the person on probation to stay away from the victim or other co-participants. Your question is vague at best without specifics.See question

You should be worried! Not only are you now charged with a second DUI but it is affecting your family. A second DUI arrest, a hit and run accident, and your own daughter calling the police should tell you something perhaps more important than what is going to happen in your case (although, drinking and driving is a potentially dangerous activity in itself). What is your drinking doing to your family and those around you? It's time to face what seems to be apparent to those who love you. Just a suggestion: take action and get some help before things get much worse.See question

A good criminal defense attorney can handle the case. Be very careful about the gun allegations because they can enhance a sentence quite severely.See question
My husband got arrested in april for grand theft auto. They gave him a deal of 5 & a half years with only 50%. He was not the driver of the car he and another friend got arrested at the scene. His friend came forward and said he was the driver b...
There really are not enough facts here to fully answer your question, but the answer is in the gang allegations. "First big offense" tells me that this is not his first brush with the law, and "..the other defendant was from the same gang" is a clue to why he is being offered what seems to you to be a long time. He needs a good lawyer, that's for sure, to get the best possible results. It is doubtful that the five and a half is the maximun sentence; otherwise, there would be no reason to take a plea deal.See question

You definitely need an attoney to assist you with this situation. The state charges of H&S 11359 may not be the end of the story and the feds may be involved. Something tipped them off to the fact that you were mailing marijuana through the mail. And do not post any more information about your case on line or anywhere else. Talk to an attorney and an attorney only.See question
Yesterday I was arrested, but before the officer even looked in my bag, or searched me, the police officer pulled me by my sweater with enough force to make me feel like I was going to be thrown on the dirt. I was the one who told the officer to r...
You do not say for what you were arrested, but unless it was for a resisting arrest offense, you will unlikey to be able to raise a defense. And yes, the officer's version of events will be much diferent than yours - you will probably be very surprised when you read his report of the event. In any event, you may want to consider having an attorney represent you.See question
I have part of it and am trying to get the rest, Thank all of you for your help. Sandy
I'm sure you can consult with an attorney and show it to him/her and get some general impressions. But I would not give advice without getting all the information myself. But sure, someone will take a look at what you have.See question

How long is the normal wait for appearance and bail hearing in a federal case?
Here in the Eastern District it can be the same day, or if arrested in the late afternoon or evening, the next morning. If initially detained and the government is seeking detention, that hearing is usually within two court days, but can be a day or two longer.See question
