Does this sound like your topic?
I am sorry, but your questions are too vague. If this helps:
Individuals don't have the power to "drop" charges. Only the police or District Attorneys office can withdraw charges.
If you don't have a lawyer, you should hire one as soon as possible. If you already have a lawyer, or a lawyer from the public defender, you need to ask them these questions.See question
I have a pending lawsuit, but the judge seems to wanna wait to see if the officer pleads guilty!
It means next court date. That's all.See question
Criminal defense Trying to get charges dropped before the trial date what should I say to the the DA to get them to drop the charges
The only thing you can say is the truth, but you can tell them you don't want them to prosecute. The problem is that the case is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania versus the defendant, not you versus the defendant. The decision whether to try to move forward with the case is the prosecutor's.See question
I'm talking to a girl online and she claims to be 21. I've verified this many times and have taken screen shots of her confirmation. Since day 1 she's made chats to be of sexual nature (how often do you masturbate, are you hard in the morning etc)...
Mr. De Groot is probably right. It's either a male (from the sound of the online talk), or someone trying to scam you out of money in the future, anyway. You have better things to do than to be led on like this.See question
Nebbia status none but he has a detainer... charged with poss of marijuana and possesion of a firearm without a license... what can his detainer be for.. he is on parole for 10 years. there is no evidence for this case it was discussed at his pre...
If he is on a state detainer, the best chance of resolving the state detainer and parole board is to fight the open case. Generally, if the open case is resolved in a defendant's favor, that is beneficial to the outcome of any violation hearing in front of the state parole board. However, even if the open case is beat, the parole board can attempt to violate someone for technical violations based on the same conduct in what is called a Rivenbark hearing.
We have done quite a few of these, with great results.See question

Nothing happens at the arraignment in Philadelphia County. He'll just get a new court date. If he hasn't hired a lawyer yet, now is the best time to do so.See question
I was convicted of a DUI while on parole. How much street time can parole take from me for this violation or do they automatically take all of it?
If you were on state parole, there are "presumptive ranges" of re-commitment as a convicted parole violator. The state board does not have to follow the presumptive ranges, but they do have to take them into consideration in fashioning your re-commitment. For DUI, the presumptive range is 3-6 months' re-commitment. The ranges are contained within chapter 75 of the Pennsylvania Code at Section 75.2 can be found here: http://www.pacode.com/secure/data/037/chapter75/chap75toc.html
If you were on county parole, these presumptions do not matter. The big factor is who your judge is.
Of course, for either state or county parole, there are many other factors, such as your criminal history, and other behavior while on parole, that will all be considered as well.
You should hire an experienced for the hearing, either in front of the judge or before the parole board.
Good luck to you.See question
What is the statute of limitations for credit card fraud in PA? My situation concerns use of several credit cards on line to purchase clothing by my teenager without my knowledge or permission. The total amount is over $3000.
The offenses typically charged for this type of conduct are theft by unlawful taking, theft by deception, access device fraud, and receiving stolen property. Generally, these offenses have a two-year statute of limitations, however, for offenses where fraud is a material element, the statute may be extended for one year after the discovery of the offense, but no more than a three year extension of the statute of limitations (that is, there could be a total possible time frame of five years for the charge to be brought).

Me and my girlfriends father got into an argument. Before it got to heated I left the house to go home. My girlfriend with in few minutes called me and said her father hit her. Now she does live there and she shares the house with her mother and f...
Mr. Engle is correct. If your girlfriend gave you permission to be there, you have the license or privilege to be on the premises. I highly doubt that the police would at some later time charge you with trespass after they already charged your girlfriend's father based on the incident, especially if your girlfriend verifies that she invited you there.See question
