Have some one that was picked up on probation violation, was ready to be released and they had a warrant that came up from a few years ago. So wanted how long they can hold them before they are transferred.
When faced with the unknown, it is imperative that you hire an attorney immediately. You need someone who can get answers to your questions and get to the bottom of the warrant that you indicated has just come up. Without an attorney, it can be challenging to get issues resolved.See question
What can happen to someone who has a "16-13-30(j), 40-5-121(a), and a 40-6-40 all pending on them? By the way I live in Douglas county.
Anytime a person is facing a felony charge, as listed in 16-13-30j, he or she needs to immediately hire an attorney. While violation of the felony statute alone can result in prison time up to 10 years, the person needs the help of an attorney to review the specific facts of the case.See question
I was heading home from work last night and got pulled over right outside the limits of Ludowici (heading towards Jesup/Brunswick). Apparently I had missed the TINY portion of the road (probably no more than 50 ft length of road) where it dropped ...
Whether or not to challenge "speed traps" or simply pay the ticket is a matter solely between you and the attorney you hire. Clearly paying the ticket would quickly resolve the matter. Regardless, having an attorney on your side--even if you choose to pay the ticket--will be valuable to get even more favorable results.See question

I agree, you definitely have a lot to lose. As you already know, a warrant has already been taken out against you; nevertheless, a skilled attorney can still provide you with the help you need, including alternatives to incarceration. I have a Legal Guide on my AVVO site that specifically addresses probation revocations. However, that is no substitute for hiring an attorney, which you need to do as soon as humanly possible.See question

You ask whether the offer "is a good deal"; unfortunately "a good deal" depends on many more factors than you've listed here. As a friend, make sure he has secured a skilled lawyer immediately.See question

I was charged with stealing 19.95 at Target and wit I forgot to pay the price for his sunglasses for knowing that I bought from the same place for $ 30 and I had cash money with me equivalent to $ 300 but the security guard did not understand and ...
I urge you to hire an attorney in your area as soon as humanly possible. Even though you say you merely forgot to pay for the sunglasses, obviously the security guard who worked for Target and the police did not believe you. Shoplifting can result in very severe consequences. Having an attorney working on your behalf will ensure that you are protected every step of the way.See question

You should always have an attorney present when law enforcement wants to ask questions or requests you or your son to make a statement. The phrase, "anything you say can and will be used against you" is true!See question
I have read a bunch of confusing explanations of the criminal justice system that talk about pre-trial hearings, bond hearings, arraignments, etc. I have seen complicated, but colorful, diagrams that serve more to obfuscate the process than to exp...
You ask very good questions, and we all must admit that the criminal justice system is far from perfect and can be a very intimidating place to be. I've been practicing for 20 years now in criminal law exclusively, and from the "suspect's" point of view I agree with your concerns. That is the very reason why you must sit down with an attorney to guide you through the process. Nothing should be too difficult for a competent criminal defense attorney.
To answer your question directly, with only the information you provided, if you are arrested on felony charge, expect to see a judge within 48 hours. As long as it is a bondable felony offense you can post bond, although in many cases, you may not have a preliminary hearing once you have posted bond. Feel free to call me to further discuss your case further, or at a minimum, contact an attorney that you are comfortable with as soon as you can.
