After a person pleads guilty and is serving there time is it possible to drop the charges for the person to get out sooner? Or is there anything to be done for that person to get out sooner?
Uh, if your boyfriend pled to criminal charges, there's nothing to drop. The case is over and he has to do his time. He might get out sooner in the local jail is overcrowded, but that's a long shot. I assume you're going to wait for him anyway, so just hang out and he'll be out soon enough. Maybe by then you be old to actually consent to sex.See question

Yes it can be refiled. Also, some judges will specify that a person can possess a deadly or dangerous weapon IF it is necessary for their particular line of work, like a chef who needs to use knives to cook or a carpenter who needs to possess wood working tools. Obviously probation would need to be aware of the particular line of work that requires use of the dangerous or deadly weapon.See question

Probably, unless one or both of you are on probation or parole and then either agency one can set certain terms and conditions while on probation or parole. So if neither one if one probation or parole, you should be ok.See question

Yes your baby's daddy can be charged with statutory rape and sent to state prison. In addition, pregnancy is considered to be great bodily injury under the law, so that adds 3 years to any state prison sentence. I would (a) stop posting any further details on this site and (b) keep quiet about the identify of the father. The Sacramento County DA's office is very touch on sex cases, especially with a pregnancy involved and anything more than a 3 year age difference can be charged as a felony. Be advised that if you try to get public assistance, they will want to know the father's name, so be careful if you apply for welfare. Hope daddy has a job so you can avoid applying for welfare.See question
A year ago, a friend of mine got me drunk and took advantage of me. I still do not feel safe seeing him in person so I prefer not to face him in court. What steps would I need to take? Why should I report him?
I agree with Mr. Marshall. The police will take a report, but by waiting a year, you have cast doubt on your credibility and as a result, both the police and the DA may be less than enthusiastic in seeking prosecution. And as a defense attorney, I would question your motive for waiting a year to make a report. And if the case is filed and goes to trial, you will be required to testify in front of a jury and will be subject to a vigorous cross-examination by the defense attorney. I would certainly recommend that my client fight charges such as these assuming the client does not confess to the police.See question

Assuing that no weapon was used, which would add 10 years and you are not probation eligible, the triad on an attempted robbery is 16 months, 2 years or 3 years.See question

Sorry but there is no reduction to 66%. That is an old wives tale that had been circulating for some time. There has been no change in the three strikes law because the voters would have to vote on it.See question
To reveal his identity, there was to guys both brothers one lives outside of the U.S.A please help can she file a rape case against them both.
I agree with my colleagues. She can file a report with rhe police, but she shouldn't expect the police to be real enthusiastic. Seriously, it has been eight years? How long did she expect to wait? Memories fade, witnesses disappear, evidence gets lost or misplaced and at some point, the law requires someone to act within a reasonable amount of time.See question
