I was wondering if I would be able to get a medical marijuana card while my 3 year unsupervised parole comes to an end and if it would cause me any problems when I report back to the court. Thank you very much,
You can definitely get a card. I would be careful to check the specific terms of your probation to make sure there is nothing about marijuana use - legal or illegal. Its better to wait until probation ends - that way you don't create unnecessary problems for yourself.
Also, the answer is different if you are on federal probation/release.See question
I hired a criminal lawyer to handle my white collar case that I have FULL proof that I'm evidence off. Matter of fact me and the other party that supposedly pressured charges against me settle this matter long before, but the DA didn't know that w...
Don't go to the DAs office on your own to try and persuade them not to prosecute you. That is a strategy that is very likely to backfire.
Assuming your lawyer is an experienced criminal defense lawyer in Sacramento he knows how to handle the DAs office and probably knows the prosecutor[s] involved. You need to communicate with your lawyer and you need to impress upon your lawyer how important it is that he communicate with you.See question
My sister in law is facing 3 felonies battery, resisting arrest and for reaching for the officers weapons
Its impossible to answer this question with any degree of accuracy without a lot more information. Does you sister have a record? If so, what kind of record? Are there any enhancements? This is really the kind of thing you should talk with a lawyer about. Don't post the answers to these kinds of questions on a public forum like the internet.See question
What can we expect the matter has to do with me being a felon in constructive possession of fire arms?
You need to hire a lawyer. Grand jury proceedings are complicated. Whether or not the privilege can be used is very technical. Guessing (and getting it wrong) can get both of you into more trouble.See question

They gave him 156 days credit. How many more time will he be doing?
If he was given two years with half he does one year. Then you subtract the time he has already done. Roughly that's 200 more days. Roughly. Call the jail - they can give you his release date.See question

Calculating when a statute of limitations has expired is extremely complicated - you would have to tell a lawyer all the facts of the case which you should not do on a public forum like AVVO. Generally speaking under the scenario you described the statute would not be tolled but there are a lot of factors that could change the answer to that question. If this is a real situation you would be best off to hire an attorney to give you advice.See question
I was arrested in May 2013 for misdemeanor vandalism when I slashed my kid's mother's tire. I was charged in October 2013 and began informal probation (3 years). Since that, I have completed 52 weeks of Anger Mgmt (when only 10 sessions require...
Have you already tried to get off of formal probation and clean up your record? You have to make sure all the restitution, fines and fees are paid otherwise the courts generally will not terminate probation or grant you relief under Penal Code section 1203.4. You really should hire a lawyer to help you do this - if you can't afford a private lawyer often times the public defender's office will help.See question
Caught shoplifting at Target, hoping to get diversion, but can't afford to spend much.
Most public defenders became public defenders because of a deep and abiding conviction in the work they do. The majority of them care about their clients very much. Unfortunately it frequently doesn't show because most public defenders have enormous case loads and cannot devote the time and attention they would like to each individual person - but it is certainly not because they don't care.See question
