    That's a stretch. A court wouldn't consider it at least until you've fulfilled all the terms of probation and some period of years has gone by showing how rehabilitated you are. This is the freeway state. DUIs are treated rather seriously here.

    People always want to see a comeback story. People always rubberneck a major collision. Humans are deeply conflicted beings. Sure, people that were interested in your case want to see how you turn out. It's uplifting if someone with a troubled past can make it. It confirms deep inner pessimism if a tiger does change its stripes, and then you would serve as a cautionary lesson of "I told you so." This grand world is completely interdependent. You hold the future in your hands. And your future is...

    That's a little puzzling. "Control" usually is used in two ways that I've seen on court calendars. One is "control date," meaning the court is controlling the progress of something, like discovery of evidence, or sentencing. Another is in the general sense of jurisdiction, i.e., the court is taking a matter off calendar and not handling the matter any longer. You will want to call the duty attorney at the public defender's office in your county to get a more certain answer; either that, or...

    In California, sadly, the person who initiates the 911 call is the victim and the police don't bother too much about silly details like asking open-ended questions that might lead to something resembling an investigation. It's possible under these facts, she might tell a cop you two jumped her and you could be charged as an accomplice. If there are gang members involved, prosecutors can have a field day making up exaggerated charges. You safest course of action is to take pictures of your...

  5. PC 187 (A) and PC 273 (AB) do each one of these charges carry a 25 to life sentence? Are there many variations with sentencing?

    187 & 273ab carry life sentences. Judges have the discretion to make extraordinary sentencing decisions, but it's the usual for them to follow the statutory regime. The question will be whether there are going to be consecutive or concurrent sentences (most likely).

    First, if you don't abide by the terms and conditions of the probation order, you will be in violation of probation and could get sent to jail. But, if you are having trouble paying, then you need to set a date with the judge so you can ask for more time to pay or to make payment arrangements due to income issues. Be prepared to demonstrate your income troubles and also be able to demonstrate your willingness to follow orders. Then, there's a good change the judge will give you the time you...

    Usually in situations like yours the court has fairly routine dispositions. Hiring a private attorney, while perhaps giving you peace of mind because you think you are getting what you pay for, actually, the Public Defender's office will invariably get you into alternative to sentencing program and your record will not necessarily be harmed.

    The first to report is the victim. I agree that you should report the father's threatening behavior towards you. If he responds you furnished alcohol to his son, he will seem like a liar. Don't be afraid to do what needs to be done to protect yourself.

    Generally, you won't get property back until probation is complete, because there could be a violation of probation, or your son could possibly move to withdraw his plea and try the case. Because of this, the DAs will not allow property to be released, at least, until six months after probation, when it is clear the person will working on the terms of probation and doing well.
