My family member was arrested for trafficking and charged in a criminal complaint. He then was indicted 9 months later for trafficking and conspiracy. he was never arraigned on the indictment for the conspiracy and it was never returned in open co...
It's a complicated case apparently. It sounds like it's a federal case. People are prosecuted in federal court even though they may have never touched drugs, or even if the drugs were actually fake as part of a sting. Federal conspiracy law does not care about actual drugs so much as it cares about the putative weight in the conspiracy that could be attributed to the defendant.
The issue with the complaint/information is confusing. You need a good criminal defense lawyer.See question
My partner was arrested in North Carolina for trafficking marijuana.
In NC, a first appearance (not an arraignment) must occur within 96 hours of arrest or upon first district court session being conducted, whichever is sooner.
Arraignment would occur either at a plea, or at an arraignment hearing shortly beige trial.See question

My mother has been arrested for drug trafficking, intent to sell, possession and obstruction. She was caught with a pound of meth and a pound of Marijuana. Her bond currently is $500,000, there is no possible way for me to get her bailed out. She ...
I don't have a copy of the sentencing chart, but a pound of meth is probably at least 15 years mandatory min in NC. There are three ways to avoid mandatory min.
1. Substantial assistance ( cooperation with law enforcement )
2. Plead to a lesser charge (which will depend on the quality of the states case)
3. Win at trial
These are very serious charges and you can anticipate a lengthy sentence if matters aren't handled properly. It really makes little difference about the persons prior record history. The crime itself is the issue.See question
I received my first offence of a DWI two years ago. I wrecked my truck into the trees on the side of the road and was thrown from the vehicle. Needless to say I was given a blood alcohol test. I put off the court date, but was informed that Ral...
It sounds like you pled guilty to a DWI. If you knowingly waived your right to a court appointed lawyer, and knowingly pled, then even if you made a bad decision - pled without the state having proof - you are probably stuck with he outcome. This is why it makes sense to have a lawyer.See question
Me and my fiancé got into an argument and it got a little loud. I guess the neighbors called the law because we live in an apartment complex. When they came i talked to them and they happened to see a few marks that wasn't supposed to be there. An...
He will be held in custody until 48 hours pass or a
district court is in session, whichever comes first. As far as pressing charges, the state usually does not simply dismiss. If you are not subpoenaed and do not attend court, the ADA would probably need to dismiss because it would lack a witness.
In April of 2014, I received a DWI in North Carolina. It was my very first driving offense, I have a completely clean record other than that.I paid all my fines and have met every requirement except for the interloche machine because I cannot affo...
This question can probably be answered by a MI lawyer.See question

I recently received a subpoena for a case that happened two years ago. They would like for me to testify as a witness but I prefer not to. I have move on in life as it never involved me from the beginning. Being a recent college graduate and a mot...
If properly served, you must at least attempt to quash the subpoena. If that fails, you'll have to appear. If you are a fact witness, compensation is minimal. You should not ignore the subpoena since doing so may result in you being held in contempt.See question
Ordered to pay fines for misdemeanor poss. Paraphernalia, wasn't able to pay & was served a paper for a court date(12-16-15) at my home by a sheriff. Will I be able to get more time to pay? Will I go to jail?
It would be helpful for you to have the money. If it is misdemeanor marijuana paraphernalia, there is no active sentence for you to serve although the judge could hold you in contempt.See question
