    Wayne’s Answer

    It sure sounds like they are trying to violate her probation, so she needs legal help. Try to find MI counsel that has experience with alcohol monitoring issues.

  • Article number of a Federal law in New Your State for early probation termination.

    Can someone help with the article number on conditions for early termination.

    Wayne’s Answer

    Mr. Conway correctly cited the federal laws for early termination of probation and supervised release. But be aware that those laws apply only to federal probation or supervised release, not NY state probation.

  • Can I pay a lawyer to dismiss past-due traffic fines (no proof of insurance and no valid registration) totaling $420 for cheap?

    I received 2 tickets in 2012. They are now asking $420 and there's a warrant. I want to see if I can pay less to a lawyer and get him to dismiss it. Is this possible?

    Wayne’s Answer

    Lawyers do not dismiss cases, judges do that. You can talk to a lawyer and ask if they can help you. No lawyer answering questions here on AVVO can contact you to provide services. You must contact them. Use the Find a Lawyer tab and search Speeding and Traffic Tickets in the city where the court is located.

  • What kind of judgement would one face if caught in procession of an illegal firearm, but with no prior criminal history?

    Person A: history of domestic violence and assault. Person B: no criminal history at all What differences in judgement would persons A & B get it each had their own separate situation where they were caught in procession of an illegal firearm...

    Wayne’s Answer

    It depends on the illegal firearm. If it is a sawed off shotgun, a fully automatic weapon, or a sawed off rifle both face federal charges punishable by up to ten years in prison. The minimum guideline sentence for B is 18 months. The minimum for A is 27 months. If the firearm is illegal under state law the punishment will vary by state, but it is unlikely to be a slap on the wrist. Law enforcement takes illegal firearms very seriously.

  • Can someone have you arrested saying you threatened then without proof?

    My husband's brother is making false accusations, saying my husband threatened him. He did not threaten him so there's no proof.

    Wayne’s Answer

    Are you asking a question or telling us? Your husband's brother's testimony at a trial would be evidence of threats. If the jury believed him, his testimony would be proof. People have been convicted of threatening on just this sort of evidence.

    Wayne’s Answer

    It is not illegal. Sure, you can refuse to meet with them, but why? They are your lawyers. They are working for you. Why are you trying to make their job harder?

    Five of us got charged two got trespassing two got one year probation i got stuck with two years probation and i never even got out of my car how can i fight this

    Wayne’s Answer

    If you had a lawyer you need to ask the lawyer right away. If you did not have a lawyer you need to hire one now. There are very limited deadlines for filing appeals or post-conviction actions. If you miss those deadlines you will have no chance.
