I was involved in a incident where I was attacked but there was drugs and guns found in the home. The prosecutor dropped all the charges. What I don't understand is while I have a open CPS case I have to get counsoling for DV but the DV charge was...
If CPS is requesting that you partake in DV classes, you can chose to comply with their requests or, if you decide not to comply, you risk a petition being filed by them to take temporary or permanent wardship of your child(ren). Sometimes their requests are reasonable and sometimes they are not. It is often helpful to have a lawyer guide you though this process.See question
i forgot to remove my handgun from my veh when visit a prison. I am being charged now with mcl 800.283(3). i was not arrested at the time of the incident.
Your questing is complex in the sense that there are a multitude of factors that are taken into consideration when a judge determines a sentence. For your charge, you do not have to do ANY time in jail at all, ie. there is no mandatory minimum. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will try first to limit your exposure to time in jail by pursuing plea and sentencing agreements from the prosecution (if your case is not going to trial). After exhausting all possible negotiations with the prosecutor, he or she will then attempt to negotiate with the judge as part of the plea process for a favorable sentence. Finally, your lawyer will advocate for you to get the lowest possible sentence at the time of sentencing. The factors and things that the lawyer can do to gain the maximum possible advantage for you throughout this process are complex and varied. Because this process is complex and the stakes are so high, it is important to hire the best lawyer you can.

A delay of a violation of probation until a separate matter is concluded is not uncommon but in your case, where you are on probation for aggravated DV 2nd offense and the new charge is a DV, the odds of the court waiting are drastically reduced. The need to hire a very good criminal defense lawyer is high in your case.

So the asset protection manger brought into the office and he told me every so make a long story short I wrote on the paper making a confession what I took which was just some deli food and a 30 dollar phone case and he made me sign a restitution ...
You probably should pay and hope they feel like prosecuting would be more trouble then its worth. If you are prosecuted, the crime would NOT be retail fraud, it would be embezzlement under $200. DO NOT attempt to condition payment upon an agreement not to report a crime, that would be illegal and the agreement would be unenforceable. Any time you may be subjected to criminal liability, it is always best to privately consult with a lawyer to determine your best options. Any opinions on the internet are subject to misunderstand and may be based upon inadequate facts. Also, there are lawyers who do not know the law and relying on such a person's advice could be counter to your interests.See question
My boyfriend has been staying with me and he has a misdemeanor warrant. Can i get in trouble for letting him stay here or is that just for a felony warrant?
You are not committing a crime unless you take measures to assist him in avoiding apprehension. Here is a thought ...why not encourage him to just get his misdemeanor case taken care of so he doesn't have to worry about a warrant anymore?

Obviously you may have made a mistake but this is not the crime of a century and there is no reason you should end up with a criminal conviction on your record. This is the type of case that, with good legal representation, prosecutors typically will reduce to a civil infraction so that you do not end up on probation or with a criminal record.See question
I refused a breathalyzer test. I did not appeal in the 2 week period. now I received a letter from the state of Michigan saying my license is suspended for 12 months. can I get a restricted license to go to and from work and to AA meetings?
Definitely! You have the right to seek a "hardship license" from the circuit court in the county where you live. If granted, you would have the ability to drive on a restricted basis for the 12 month period until your license becomes automatically reinstated. The process is complex and I definitely recommend that you work with an experienced lawyer.

My son received his second MIP while on probation for his first one.
He should ask at the arraignment and be prepared to answer a host of questions regarding his ability to pay for a lawyer, his assets and his debts. Make sure he knows to plead "not guilty" or tell him to "stand mute" at the arraignment. He should not plead guilty before consulting with and getting advice from a lawyer.See question
