    It is a bit more complicated than that. first, based on the information you have provided it sounds like you invited the officers in for investigation purposes, which means they are not in your home illegally. Second, you do not indicate where the officer found the items you were charged with. If they were in plain view then he did not conduct an illegal search. There are many factors that need to be considered regarding the circumstances of this case.

    This is the statute in CA dealing with lost property. Pen § 485. Lost Property -- Effort to Locate Owner. One who finds lost property under circumstances which give him knowledge of or means of inquiry as to the true owner, and who appropriates such property to his own use, or to the use of another person not entitled thereto, without first making reasonable and just efforts to find the owner and to restore the property to him, is guilty of theft.

    This is why you need to consult an attorney if you can afford one or ask the court to appoint a public defender if you are unable to obtain private counsel.

  5. If a cop finds 1 vicodin in my car will I have to do jail time?

    Mr. Wolf is correct. In addition, I am assuming you do not have a prescription for the vicodin since you are concerned about jail time. If charges are filed against you for possession of a controlled substance and you have no criminal record as indicated, you may be eligible for a diversion program in which you complete a drug treatment program. Once the program is complete, without any new charges or program rule violations, you return to court and the judge will dismiss the case....

    Do you not trust your attorney that is representing you? You do not provide enough information to answer thoroughly, but generally when there is property damage and a .08 a wet reckless is a good offer.

    I would agree with the other attorneys. I don't believe you need to disclose it for law school. The information may be pertinent to your moral character application, but not to your law school admission.

  8. If you buy car from someone who had an Ignition Interlock Device installed does the seller get fined if the buyer removes it?

    Answered about 2 years ago.

    The DMV governs the installation and removal of the interlock device. The person who has the interlock installed is likely required to have one on any vehicle he/she owns or operates. The sale of the vehicle may be a way for the seller to avoid having to continue the interlock requirements. It should be the sellers responsibility to have the device removed (in Tulare County there is a charge for removal and there is a contract between the interlock company and the person who had it installed)...

    Should you choose not to use an attorney, be prepared to explain to the court why you need/want probation terminated early. If it is affecting you negatively etc. There is one Judge in my county who likes an actual declaration attached to the motion for early termination of probation.

    I would hope at this stage of the proceedings you would have an attorney representing you to provide the help and answers you need. If you do not have an attorney you need one ASAP.
