  • Can my car be impounded and then searched by tow company and I receive more charges

    I was arrested in 2015 for a warrant issued in Gary Indiana in 2012 for a non licensed animal. My car was towed and I was taken to the police station they were going to let me go. But the tow company found my handgun that I legally purchased its i...

    Dennis’s Answer

    I agree with the other gentleman's response. Don't details on an open forum as law enforcement trolls these sites to see if anyone in their jurisdictions are posting anything that can be used against them.
    Ask the court to appoint you a public defender if you can not afford a private attorney.
    The search as you call it was most likely an inventory search by the tow company; however, the tow company did not add the charges, the prosecutor did.
    Good luck.

    Dennis’s Answer

    Never, ever walk I into court and try to handle something yourself. As you say you can not afford a lawyer request that the court appoint you a lawyer from the public defenders office. They are there to help people who do not have the ability to hire a private attorney. If I were you I would contact the court now and ask hot to apply for a public defender before the next court date.

    Good luck.

  • My ex - husband had sold a vehicle, received money and i am the currently owner. I been receiving verbal threads

    Been receiving verbal threads who seem to be the new owner, regarding the vehicle title this issue has been reported to the police. i have not heard any response. I been placed as liable for this upset matter.

    Dennis’s Answer

    The information Mr. Wing provided is very good advice. Gather what document you have showing that you are the sole owner of the vehicle and take them to the police. How is it, however, that if you are the sole owner that your ex-husband was able to physically provide the vehicle to the buyer?

    Also, if the person leaving the threats left them as a voice message or even an email, take those to the police as well.

    Good luck.

  • Is my court appointed attorney helping? What can i or my boyfriend do to change him?

    My boyfriend is in county jail being held by the marshals, he is being charged with conspiracy, possession with intent to deliver and distribution of a controlled substance, he sold a pound of meth to a cop and was cough with 5 more and they have ...

    Dennis’s Answer

    A pound of meth is significant. Five more on top of that is a mountain of trouble for your boyfriend. I am sorry that his lawyer does not want to speak to you but as the other lawyers indicated he does not have to and can only discuss the case with you with the direct consent given directly to him by your boyfriend.

    If the government has tendered an offer to your boyfriend the lawyer is required to convey that offer to him. There may - or maybe not - be a significant amount of time difference between what the government is offering and what could happen if convicted after trial. Good luck.

    You could call the deputy prosecutor assigned to the case and ask about having the car released to you providing it is not being held as evidence.

  • Can I sue police for me being fired because they gave a false ticket that was someone else and I got the warrant without notice

    Police wsp gave a ticket to a man looking nothing like me and said they id him by my info can I sue cuz it cost me my job

    Dennis’s Answer

    Can you sue? Sure you can; this is America where anyone can sue anyone else. The real question is whether the cost of the suit, and then the amount recovered (if any) may make the law suit worth your time and effort. Why not call some lawyers there in Bothell and make appointments to discuss this with them? There are bound to be many questions they will want to known answers to. Good luck.

  • Can I be arrested for a warrant in a different state?

    I'm out on bond for 2 class A misdemeanor charges in Tx. Can I be arrested in Washington? Can WA see I was arrested in Texas? $5k bond. Can I avoid all this by never ever going back to Texas?

    Dennis’s Answer

    As long as the warrant is inn the system you can be arrested on it. Then Washington will contact Texas to see if they want you held so they can extradited. For a misdemeanor Texas might not want to go to all the expense. However, it means the warrant would remain in the system and you could be arrested over and over again. Good luck.

  • Is there a way to get weapon enhancement charge removed while incarcerated still ? Even if you took a plea!? (Couple years ago )

    Got weapon charge saying bats were used but no evidence ! And first time violent offender! Didn't take to trial but can you have witnesses say something ?

    Dennis’s Answer

    If you didn't go to trial and you made what the court found to be a knowing, voluntary and intelligent decision to plead guilty with the enhancement as part of the deal there is not really anything that can be done this much later.

    Dennis’s Answer

    If your friend has not lost any good time credit release will be at the 20 -21 day point. Also if your friend spent any time on this case previous to this period of incarceration that would be credited to her time served as well.
