Yes. If you don't want to be caught off guard, hire a local criminal defense attorney and they can contact the local Prosecuting Attorney's Office to see if charges have been filed yet. They can keep tabs on if and when this is happening. At least there won't be any surprises that way. Good luck.
All of these steps require an attorney. Get an attorney - they need to obtain from the Superior Court the application for the Search Warrant. Then, assuming the attorney knows what issues to look for in a search warrant application, they need to go through and look for errors in written or verbal application. Good luck.
If the charge of DWLS (2?) that you got in the mail is from that same incident, or in other words, originated out of the same accident report, you should be in the clear on any potential DUI. What is often helpful is to have a local attorney call the Prosecuting Attorney's Office and just make sure there is nothing else pending. Best of luck.
Different functions are done by different entities. The Prosecutor's function is adding or removing (amending) charges - hence, you see a Felony dropped down to a lower Court. Only the Prosecuting Attorney has the ability to "change" the charges.
In your scenario, the Court's function is sentencing. The Court can not change the charge, but can sentence you to anything inside of the maximums allowed. With a Gross Misdemeanor that is anywhere up to 365 days in jail. However - regarding...
The sentence, if the facts lead to a conviction, will be based to a large degree on his history. A Malicious Mischief in the Third Degree is a gross misdemeanor, meaning the Court can sentence him anywhere up to 1 year in jail and up to a $5,000 fine. It is hard to predict how a judge would come down without knowing more facts.
His best course of action would be (a) not talk to you because I'm sure there is a no contact order, (b) get back into treatment, and let the provider know of the...
Yes, especially if you are in some type of program like Drug Court. Getting a job or at least attempting to get a job is a specific term of a Drug Court contract. It is not so much the Probation Officer personally, but rather the PO attempting to enforce the terms of a contract or a Judgement and Sentence.
In the past, we have called the Canadian Consulate for clients. They have been helpful. I would not just cross my fingers and hit the border.
I assume this is in Kitsap County. See if your current counsel has any room to move with the Prosecutor about alternative resolutions. The Kitsap Prosecutors are actually pretty understanding about that issue.
Best of luck.
Depending on who the victim is, and if they are open to this concept, there is a means to dismiss a case known as a compramise of misdemeanor. You indicated that you have an attorney. Any attorney who practices at the District or Municipal Court level will know how to accomplish this. Basically your attorney gets the victim to sign a document waiving any future civil claims and stating that the no longer wish to see the defendant prosecuted. You should end up alright. Best of luck.
Without consent or a warrant, the answer is typically that the search is unlawful. I agree with the other two gentlemen, there are more facts necassary to answer the question. I am local to your area. Our firm is in downtown Bremerton. Please feel free to give our firm a call. (360) 782-9000.
Security guards, especially concert security guards, always screw this stuff up. They are transient like carnival workers. I would be shocked if they can put together a good report and / or show up for a trial if the matter has to proceed that far. You should hire him a good attorney familiar with concerts (and the fallout) in that area. Best of luck. My suspicion is that he will be OK.
