  • Can WalMart charge me with more charges after I was arrested for theft in the 3rd?

    John’s Answer

    While the prosecutor can always add or dismissed charges before they rest at trial, the delay in your case can likely be chalked up to the wrong court date being listed on the citation. Chances are the case is sitting on a prosecutor or clerk's desk waiting to be sent out on a summons.

  • How many times can a person be in and out of jail before they go to court?

    John’s Answer

    Specific conditions of release for a criminal defendant (e.g. bail, supervision) are generally up to the discretion of the judge. Generally a judge will look at the nature of the offense, the defendant's criminal history, warrant history, etc. to determine how much bail should be required. You may be able to contact an advocate at the county to receive more specific information about cases in which you are involved.

  • What are his options?

    John’s Answer

    His best option is to hire a lawyer who is well versed with your state's firearms possession laws as well as one who is proficient in navigating probation violations. Find someone who is effective but also someone your husband can relate to and who will be supportive of him continuing to clean up his act.
