My family member is arrested for shoplifting small items for the third time in less than 3 years. he has not done any time in jail- paid fines and that is all, to this point. Yes, I know he is stupid- that is not my question. I am wondering if it ...
Hire a lawyer for your son. Can't afford one? Ask to have a public defender appointed. They do excellent work and can bring all facts to the forefront in dealing with the prosecutor. As to whether or not to post his bond... he probably wont get much help while in jail; however, you could ask the jail to have a Metal Health Professional contact him to see if he is okay or can request he be seen by the medical staff. Good luck.See question
I apparently eluded an officer 48hrs ago. A car pulled up behind me and shined spotlights on my car while telling me to pull over. I complied with the request but after 4 requests they still refused to identify themselves. I heard someone chamber...
Even if you haven't been charged consult with an attorney. Don't post things on this site that can be used against you. Police and prosecutors love to troll these sites for evidence. If you can not afford to consult with a private attorney, and you have been charged, request appointment of a public defender. Good luck.See question
I threatened the vice principal at school and verbally abused her.
Yes, Yes, Yes. Never deal with a criminal charge without a lawyer!See question
I'm trying to figure out what the ratio in Ohio is.
No sir, every state has their own rules and some times it can differ by what county you are in. Call the local jail where the time would be served and they can provide an answer. Good luck.See question

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...
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.
I tried on shoes at Walmart realized I left money in the car followed my friend to the bathroom didn't realize she had taken the tags and thrown them away and she didn't realize I hadn't paid for the shoes and she was rushing me out of the store a...
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.

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.
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.See question
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 ...
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.
