Can Judge deny a trial for some reasons?
Anyone charged with a crime has the right to a trial by a jury. A judge cannot deny this right. There are lots of reasons a trial might be delayed.
I'm going to a stab at what I think you might really be asking, because the only reason this question usually comes up is when charges are dismissed and the person still wants their day in court. You cannot force the State to charge you with a crime so that you can have a trial. Dismissed means you are not charged with a crime, thus no right to a trial.See question
Accidentally found out my license was suspended when applying to drive for uber. No previous speeding tickets, asked for a deferral and mailed in the ticket i received (wish i made a copy first) . Never heard anything. Today i go to apply to be an...
Maybe. If the court received your request for a deferral in a timely manner, and denied it for some reason, it may be difficult to get the judge to reconsider it. If, however, the response wasn't received, or there was some type of clerical error, you may be able to convince the court to vacate any Finding and give you a new hearing. There is a lot of discretion allowed in these type of situations and it will depend a lot on which court it's in and the judge assigned to the case. Your chances of getting this done are probably significantly better with an attorney. This is a fairly routine matter if you do this all the time. It can be very confusing if you're trying to figure out how to do it for the first time.See question
I just bailed my boyfriend out of jail for Fel Harrasment but has an upcoming court date to see if they are going to press charges since he wasn't PR'd on his pre trial. If they do decide to press charges will he be arrested and taken into custody...
He needs to talk to an attorney. There are simply too many factors to consider. The nature of the charges, prior history abiding by court orders, criminal history and the facts surrounding the case are just a few things the court will look at. Generally, when someone has bailed out and appears out of custody they are allowed to continue to be released on bail, but that is not always the case. One thing is certain, if he does not show up he will end up back in custody and it will be much harder to bail out the next time.See question
Conviction was in 2004 in Washington State I have no other criminal record
You may be eligible to vacate your class B felony if the conviction was for not for a violent offense (RCW 9.94A.030) or a crime against persons (RCW 43.43.830).See question
One of my friends is being charged for the theft of two fifths of alcohol and he wants me to go on the stand and say that I took one of the bottles and drove so that his charge gets reduced.
So he wants you to take the stand and testify that you committed the crime together? That just makes you accomplices and both guilty of stealing both bottles. This probably makes his case worse. He clearly needs to have a conversation with his attorney before doing anything.
Yes, you will probably be charged with theft and it will be easy to convict you with an admission in court under oath. If you are lying to help your friend you would be committing perjury, which is a felony. You need smarter "friends!"See question
I was at my friends house. They asked me to leave because i made them angry. When i tried to get my stuff, the friend who owns the house grabbed me and shoved me and forced me out of the house using physical force. My stuff is still in his house....
Unfortunately, there is no way to predict what will be said what the police will do. Your friend is not allowed to grab you and force you out of the house unless it is in defense of himself, his property or others on his property. He is not allowed to keep your stuff. You are not allowed to retrieve your stuff by force. The police would often rather arrest someone than get involved in a property dispute. Your best course of action is to file in civil court for the return of your property. I'm going to re-post this under landlord-tenant law so you can get an answer for how to go about that process.See question
I had a deferred dismissal of a 2nd degree trespassing charge and I am concerned that a recent MIC will invalidate the dismissal and force my case to go to trial.
I'm not sure what a "deferred dismissal" is. If you have a case that is already dismissed, a new case won't change that. If you are on a deferred sentence (conviction vacated and dismissed if you comply with sentence) or some type of diversion (charges won't be filed if you comply with terms), a new charge will almost certainly be a violation of the terms of your sentence/agreement. You may still have options and should retain an attorney as soon as possible.See question
Girlfriend leaving abusive home, boyfriend refuses to let her go alone and vulnerable. what is the legal risk?
Washington law is not going to be your problem. In most cases it's not illegal for an 18-year-old to have sex with a 16-year-old in Washington State and kidnapping is only taking somebody against their will. It could be communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. However, when you cross State lines you become subject to the laws of the other Sstate and Federal law as well. It's unlikely that the beds would be interested in something like this, but depending on what State you end up in you may actually have something to worry about.See question
A lot of traffic violations and I need my license back.
I think your question is "do traffic fines ever expire?" No, they do not. You may be able to negotiate payments with the collection agency or the court. (A Statute of Limitations is a law that controls how long after an event that a case can be filed and is not relevant to fines owed.)See question

Attorneys are prohibited from assisting nonattorneys in the practice of law. What this means is that we can tell you what the law is and suggest some options for how to proceed. We cannot tell you how to argue your case in court. Several folks who answered your original question suggested that you have some potential issues, but also a much higher chance of success if you hire counsel to represent you. I agree.See question
