I plead to a felony burglary charge. My public defender told me if i took it to trial I'd most likely lose. They claim money was missing, but when I was arrested on the premises I did not have the missing money. Basically they took the defendants ...
For burglary, you merely had to "break and enter" (which you've admitted publicly) with the intent to commit a crime. You don't need to steal anything to have committed burglary.
At the time of your plea, the judge asked you a series of questions to insure that your plea was voluntary, intelligent and knowingly made. This was designed to prevent you from changing your mind later on, as you have done. You have admitted the crime under oath and nothing in your question is indicative of a valid basis for appeal. Be wary of lawyers taking your money for this case, as your chances, at least based on the facts you provided make it impossible to win.See question

Should they have given you notice and explained to you what's going? Of course. But it's understandable that they'd want to put the mind of the healthcare worker at ease. You can file a formal complaint with the hospital. But I don't think you have damages significant enough to warrant a law suit.See question
In a search warrant metal knuckles were found. Can you face jail time for that with having no record?
By virtue of being charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, they are facing a year in jail. Depending on their prior criminal history, if any, jail is unlikely.See question

You should be able to get a release from the DAs office immediately as there is no reason for them to hold it as arrest evidence as double jeopardy prevents them from trying you a second time. The police can still try to take the car away from you in a forfeiture proceeding as the burden of proof is lower than a criminal trialSee question
In my charges there is info like subject 1 subject 2 and no names you cant understand the charges. If yes why it is done. It is obvious you cant understand the charges this way.
Yes. It's permitted when they don't yet know their identities or to protect an ongoing investigation or informant.See question

My boyfriend got into a verbal argument, which then proceeded to turn in a physical altercation. Both of us suffer from mental health issues. We both go through flashbacks from time to time. The night in question, we were entertaining a friend o...
Only the district attorney's office can decide not to prosecute any criminal case. You can reach out the the assigned district attorney and let your desires be known. I suggest not writing such lengthy factual narratives on a public forum which is neither privileged or confidential. Your other option is to work with his defense attorney to see how you can help in his defense.See question
About a year ago I had gotten an aggravated harassment case. I was remanded and stayed in Rykers island for a month. The charge was that I had made multiple threats to a person and a written letter that stated that I wanted to harm that person. ...
I suggest you go to the court clerk where the case was prosecuted and request a certificate of disposition. It will be the official record of the case (hopefully) being dismissed as you believe. If the charges are indeed dismissed, there should be no restrictions on your ability to travel. You should carry the certificate of disposition with you when you travel just in case.See question
Defendant went to trial and was found guilty. Two B felonies for a Drug case Defendant had been waiting for a year now to be sentence. please don't respond saying ask lawyer because he doesnt know why its taking this long or whats going on.. Than...
If the lawyer representing the defendant doesn't know what the reason for the delay is, how could anyone who knows nothing but the few sentences you wrote possibly know? It should not take a year to sentence someone. Perhaps there is a motion to set aside the verdict but the attorney would be aware of that since he or she would have made the motion. The State courts follow that sentencing guideline yes.
I have already been arraigned and have been told that the judge that oversees my case plays a huge role in the outcome of the case. I am hoping for an ACOD for CPCS (2 counts), but the judge I am assigned to seems tough. I have yet to go before th...
The same way a prosecutor can't try to find a tougher judge based on the case, you're not entitled to try and find an easier one. Your best bet is to hire an experienced criminal attorney and try to work out a plea bargain that doesn't leave you with a criminal record. There aren't enough facts in your question to eastimate if that's likely but if it's a small amount of drugs and you haven't been in trouble before it's a very realistic goal.See question
