I was wondering when I go before the judge would I have to do the remaining time in jail or can I have my lawyer file motion so I dont have to go to jail.
Also instead of me having to go to jail is their anyway I can have a lawyer file motion to squash it or take care of it so I dont have to go to jail. The case is pending I haven't been convicted yet, and the mtr was file 18mos ago and my current probation officer just informed me I have a warrant
Criminal Defense Attorney
First if i understand your situation, there is a warrant that a Judge issued based on the states Motion to Revoke your probation, alleging some violation (s) of the Judge's conditions.
You have the right to have a hearing and make the State prove your violations, which is limited to the Judge deciding whether to revoke your probation which is a suspended jail sentence and require you to serve a term in jail or prison depending on your charge and the length of probation.
Defense Attorney's can not squash, crush, quash, make disappear a warrant. They can however, help you prepare for the hearing and or negotiate the best possible outcome for you.
Providing general answers are meant to help the poster to understand some complex legal concepts and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship.
