    Yes, it is legal and worse yet, down the line you might receive a debt collection notice for the property damage resulting from the date of loss. This may stand as a lien on his license as well.

  • If i haven't been assigned a public defender yet does that mean i haven't been charged with anything yet?

    My friend was arrested 2 weeks ago along with one of his other friends, I noticed his friend has been assigned a public defender but he hasn't yet

    Depending on the charge, if your friend is found indigent (unable to afford an attorney) he/she will be appointed a PD at arraignment (when the state announces whether or not it is going to formally charge your friend).

  • How can a bail be discharged if case is still open

    can i be made to pay another bond and for what reason can bail be discharged

    Robert’s Answer

    Without more facts this is a difficult question to address - your bond can be returned upon a final disposition of your case. As for "another bond" should the state seek to file additional charges you could be required to post an additional bond. Seek the assistance of a criminal defense attorney in your case.

    Hire a competent attorney you can trust ASAP. While this is a relatively minor charge and the police have seemingly made an effort to explain it to you, only an attorney can truly aid your son in this situation.

    Hire a local ticket attorney. These seem beatable. I did not review your citation number, but a defense is that the ticket is facially incorrect (which appears to be what you are stating).

    Robert’s Answer

    It appears (from your second to last sentence) that there is a writing of some sort. If you have a contract the answer should be reflected there.

    Otherwise, contact an attorney to handle this matter on your behalf and guide you through your transition smoothly.
