The DA has the decision to try cases or not. When they feel there is a self defense claim the potential defendant can make, very often they will not have to file charges. Some times a grand jury can be convienved to indict a defend at when the DA refuses to file charges, but this is rare over the objection of the DA.
The bottom line is that your brother unfortunetly brought a gun to a clandestine meeting which resulted in his death. I am also not aware of the legal term "overkill" and don't...
You definitely need an attorney, but first you need to stop posting about your case. You appear to have spoken to the police and compromisedy yourself. Any portion of the statement you made to the police office is admissible in court. He most likely did not have a case until you came down and "explained what happened".
You need to contact an attorney who can get the police report and find out what exactly is the case against you. Good luck.
You should hire an attorney for your daughter now. It appears that your daughter may be receiving a summons to appear in juvenile court for some sort of battery or more serious charge. Feel free to contact my office I practice regularly in Sacramento juvenile court. Good luck.
There are many different types of sexual offenses in California which do not required PC 290 registration. These are commonly called Romeo and Juliet laws and deal with two parties who are generally both under age, but they can also be used for people who are generally within three years of each other.
Since you are only just barely 18 and she is 17, absent any other ugly facts, the only real evidence against you is the father who will falsely state he saw you have sex and your statement...
You would need to retain an attorney to petition the court to unseal your juvenile record. The exact cost is impossible to determine without a consultation with a client. Please feel free to contact my office to discuss the matter.
What you are facing is the dual authorities which are prosecuting you for this matter. The DMV does not have to establish your alcohol level beyond a reasonable doubt. This means they are able to suspend a license with a far lower sowing of proof than the criminal courts. This is also allowed since you have a right to be out of custody but not to drive as that is a privilege. Good luck.
No defense attorney can give ou a precise answer on this matter since there are so many factors outside of the attorney's control. Essentially, whether to find a violation or not and, more importantly, what the punishment should be, is entirely up to the court. The two year period is a positive fact that should help your boyfriend. However, the fact that he is charged with offending behavior that is close in relation to the underlying offense that established the probation is not helpful. Up...
There are many evidentiary objections and arguments that can be (and should) be made in opposing red light tickets. There is a current of backlash that is developing in the appellate courts regarding the hearsay and non-foundational nature of the video evidence and testimony by experts called by the prosecution in California. An attorney who is skilled at research and oral argument should be retained to help point out these weaknesses in the case presented by the DA. Hire a traffic attorney.
You need to hire a local attorney who can appear with you and request a we fence modification. It appears that you may have some remaining fines and need an extension on the deadline to pay.
Additionally, since the last DUI was in 2008, you may be a good candidate for expungement, on d the remainder of the fees and fines are taken care of. I practice regularly in the the Sacramento area and wouldn't mind giving you a free consultation. Good luck.

One of the provisions of probation is a requirement to obey all laws. Since California is has the medical marijuana structure in place, he would not be in violation of California law by continued use of medical marijuana. Now, he would be in violation of Federal law, but I have never seen a judge find a violation of probation based upon an act which California law allows. Good luck.
