  • I missed my last chance to meet with my lawyer and I have no more continuances, what will happen to me?

    It's a misdemeanor dv harassment

    Dennis’s Answer

    What do you mean you missed your last chance to meet with your attorney? Has the attorney said s/he wont give you another appointment? Have you tried ton schedule another appointment by his/her staff? It seems odd your attorney will not try to meet with you before court. Call the attorney's office and as to set an appointment before court. If you are told no ask to speak with that attorney's supervisor. Good luck.

    Of course you can file a complaint. The real question is will it do any good? Once the new Police Ombudsman is appointed talk to that person.

    Good luck.

  • I had a are you a dime Prison based dosa and I did not use what can I do?

    They made me sign violations that I did not commit and they would not send my you and what can I do on this matter

    Dennis’s Answer

    The first question is why did you sign for a violation that you did not commit? Was it to get a deal for a smaller length sanction than would be recommended if you took DOC to a hearing and lost? If that is the case there might not be much more you can do. If, on the other hand, you were pressured in some manner check the paperwork DOC gave you when you went onto Community Custody to see if there is an appeal right you can file with DOC. Good luck.

  • My Sentencing is over I still have NCO on me I want to retrieve my Personal belongings How do I do this legally

    Please I just want my Personal Belongings back. She still has a NO Contact Order on me! How do I retrieve my Personal Belongings Back I need to know the Legal way to retrieve them myself

    Dennis’s Answer

    Mr. Stimmel gave good advice. Why didn't you ask the lawyer that handled your case to have a provision made for retrieving your possessions? Also, you might want to consider having the law enforcement agency in your jurisdiction do a "civil standby" once your NCO is amended to allow you to collect your possessions. Good luck.

    Dennis’s Answer

    The other attorneys gave sound advise. My question is this: what are you doing running a business like this without an attorney? In today's litigious society you need all then protection and advise that you can get. Find a good attorney for this situation and then also discus retaining that person for future needs. Good luck!
