It is normal. Sounds like he is doing well. I suggest that he make an appointment to meet the new probation officer and touch bases with him about all the positive things he is doing with his life. You never know when it could come in handy.See question
I agree with all my colleagues so far. I would add that you need to be proactive. He cannot afford for his case to be handled like his previous cases might have been handled. He needs an aggressive and proactive attorney with an aggressive investigator that is going to get out front of the DA on this. Do not let another court appearance go by without having an attorney who is going to tell his mostly positive story. If he cannot afford an attorney then go meet with his public defender, supervisors, and keep the pressure up. Force the PD to read the file, to do the work, and to send the investigators out.
A lot of time, when people who have turned their lives around after being through the system approach a new case with the same mentality they faced their old cases with. He has changed, his approach to this situation needs to change.
I wish you both the best.See question
First, the best thing you can do to fight your case is have gainful employment (that will allow your attorney to show that your job is a reason not to send you to jail). Second, if you have no job or money than you will likely qualify even if you get a job. Holding off on getting a job is the worst thing you can do.See question
I agree with my colleagues. Also, the wording of the terms and wording of the civil settlement will effect your chances of success on a finding of factual innocence.See question
Everyone's advice is absolute correct. Hire an attorney and if you can't, make an in person appointment with your PD's supervisor and explain that you want to withdraw your plea. If they aren't responsive to you send the request to your PD and his supervisor in writing and send it certified mail. Keep all proof and then seek out a private attorney to help you.See question
I agree with what's been said already but would add it could always be victim driven. It's best not to get caught up in a prosecutor's motivations and let the attorney figure all that out. I would also not mention your husband's name on the public sight since word travels fast in the legal field and it could not possibly help your husband to have this question get back to the DA. Depending on the facts of the case he could be going out on a limb and doing your husband a favor. Just to be on the safe side.See question
You should never make any statements and turn them over to the DA yourself, even if they are letters you are writing for someone else. Your attorney should be handling this. You should at the very least have a public defender assigned to answer this question.
As far as writing them for people, the whole point is to find people who care enough, that realize you need some help, to write them for you. This isn't a letter of recommendation for a job, this is a criminal matter and the result could be life changing. Find someone who will sit down and write on your behalf and coordinate with your attorney to communicate with the DA.See question
I agree with my colleagues. Stop talking about this case IMMEDIATELY and that means do not talk to ANYONE but your own criminal defense attorney. This is very serious.See question
Everyone else's answers are right on point. Being on probation is a challenge and I recommend you make sure you do not take chances. I recommend not driving necessarily, not being out on the road in the evening, and being very careful about who your passengers are and what they have on them.See question
