if caught red - handed for armed robbery and the DA is offering 16 years can a criminal defense lawyer help reducing the sentence to the minimum ?
Yes absolutely - an attorney is a skilled professional who knows the law and the various sentencing options, assuming the DA proves his guilt (being caught "red handed" doesn't necessarily mean anything). Get him an attorney asap.See question

Get him an attorney. Otherwise, what's your question?See question
He was schedule to be at the L.A County Twin Towers yesterday before 5:30pm. Will he do all 20 days? Or is there only certain percentage he will do?
Assuming nothing else, he will do 10 days. Usually sentences of under 90 can be served weekend on the Sheriff's work program, however.See question
Is it the law that they must provide it within ten days? Or is it provide it when ever they get around to it?
The prior poster is mistaken. The police mutt serve a search warrant within 10 days of its issuance by a magistrate. They don't have to give you anything. If a case is filed, your attorney will get a copy of the warrant with the discovery. Penal code section 1534.See question

Yes the DA eventually will find out, regardless if your bac. Get a local attorney to help you with the courts and the DMV.See question

I agree with the other posters. "High profile" doesn't necessarily mean good. There are many excellent attorneys who don't feel the need to get on TV every chance they get, and there are lots of excellent attorneys here on AVVO. Contact a number of them and go with whomever you like best, regardless of "profile."See question
Formal probation is very expensive, it's about 89 a month. I owe a total of 4,000 in court fees, most of that is because the court has already added 89 dollars for 36 months (I was sentenced to 3 years formal probation) in the fee list. However, i...
