    Jason’s Answer

    It sounds like you have been charged with Driving on a Revoked License due to DUI. If so, a third offense is a felony punishable by not less than 1 nor more than 3 years in prison. Probation is not an option for this offense, home incarceration is the only alternative.

    I would contact a defense attorney immediately.

    Jason’s Answer

    In West Virginia this is not statutory rape. The age of consent in West Virginia is 16. So, as long as you are 16, it doesn't matter how old the other party is.

  • How long does it take for your second arraignment?

    My husband was arrested 10/25/15 for possession with intent to deliver and conspiracy. He had a court day 11/5/15 but was told since he didn't have a lawyer we could not get a bond reduction and it would b another 10 days. It's 11/16/15 he has a l...

    Jason’s Answer

    I am assuming that the court hearing on 11/5/15 was a preliminary hearing. My question is, did he waive his time limits within which to have a preliminary hearing? If not, a prelim must be held within 10 days of your date of arrest if the defendant is incarcerated. IF he waived this time limit, he is at the mercy of the court's docket in rescheduling the preliminary.

  • Can a magistrate change your sentence after 8 months of sentencing you?

    I was sentenced to 1 year total in jail 6 months suspended for community corrections and other 6 months in jail. I did my 6 months in jail and I'm now working on my 5 month of community corrections. The magistrate is trying to make me restart my ...

    Jason’s Answer

    I agree with the other answer given. Community corrections does not give you any credit for time served like home incarceration would. It is much more like probation. So, if you were to violate the terms of your sentence, then yes, your original suspend sentence will be put into effect.

    Jason’s Answer

    Signing a release with an insurance company does nothing to impact a criminal prosecution. The insurance claim is a civil case and wholly separate and apart from a criminal prosecution. Furthermore, the victim is not the one who decides whether or not to prosecute, it is the prosecuting attorney. I suggest you contact an experienced DUI attorney immediately if you have not already done so.

  • If someone had to pay $5000.00 bail and went to court, how much bail money would they get back?

    The person that put up the bail said they didn't get any back.

    Jason’s Answer

    I would contact the clerk of the court where the charges were pending. Generally, they will have the bond money refunded in full once the case closes. If they gave the Court permission, when they signed the bonding papers, they Court could deduct the fines and costs as stated below.

    Definitely contact the court clerk to find out what is going on though.

    Jason’s Answer

    It will not show up on a background check. All juvenile proceedings in West Virginia are closed proceedings. Therefore, anything related to the charge is kept in a sealed file which takes a court order to open. Due to this, it will not show up on a background check.
