    You need a doctor that can help you with your addiction. You would be beyond foolish to report this to the police. You are thinking of admitting that you committed a felony? Such are the perils of the black market drug trade, sometimes inexperienced buyers get stiffed. Lesson learned: know your dealer or stop buying on the black market. I recommend you get treatment from a physician who can legally prescribe your pain medications or perhaps you can attempt to stop your medication with the...

    Do not under any circumstances talk to law enforcement. Do not talk to anyone about this incident - friends, enemies, relatives, colleagues - except a criminal attorney in private. You should be able to hire an attorney to represent you on a "pre-filing" basis where the attorney attempts to convince the police and DA not to bring charges against you. Keep calling attorneys to find a reasonable rate as you will not receive free representation from the public defender unless and until you are...

    Your uncle should not listen to the police and should consult a criminal attorney immediately. Your uncle should not make any statements to anyone about this incident including his insurance, other party's insurance, police, strangers, enemies, colleagues, friends, or family. Your lawyer needs to hire a criminal attorney who can attempt to investigate this matter and present your uncle's side of the matter to the DA before the DA decides to file charges. In other words, it is definitely not a...

    If you were not arrested, there will be no arrest record and of course there will be no conviction record. Hopefully you have an attorney handling your theft case. An attorney can attempt to convince the DA not to file the case.

    No, it's certainly not so straightforward. First you don't mention if she was subpoenaed for a preliminary hearing in a felony case. If this is the case, her testimony is not essential and the officer who took her statements can simply repeat them as hearsay at the hearing. Lets assume she was subpoenaed for trial and didn't show up. In that case, the case wouldn't automatically be dismissed for a couple reasons. First of all her testimony may not be essential to proving the case in which...

    You should hire an attorney asap to handle both the civil and criminal aspect of this matter. I agree that an on-campus store which is related to your school (and records and all that entails) should not be dealt with in the same way that one would deal with Target or Walmart. Hire an attorney

    The American legal system presumes everyone innocent until proven guilty following due process whether citizen, permanent resident, celebrity, rich, poor or otherwise. With regard to your claim that Bieber "has committed many crimes", this is unclear from the public record. I've little awareness of Bieber and his antics, so a quick google search reveals that Bieber has been arrested a couple times for minor allegations and there is a pending DUI case which apparently is going to be reduced to...

    You should hire an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can attempt to convince the District Attorney not to file any charges before court. An attorney can begin investigating this case immediately to develop an optimal defense strategy if charges are filed. Best of luck

    Hire an attorney asap. Marijuana DUIs are extremely difficult to prove given the way marijuana is metabolized and given the way marijuana impairs driving (DOT studies have shown marijuana causes drivers to be more cautious and less accident prone. This is not to say that you won't be prosecuted and convicted of marijuana DUI especially in Fresno county, youll almost certainly be prosecuted there. Hire experienced criminal counsel asap. Cease making statements.
