Me and a friend got pulled over by the police, I pulled off and my friend jumped out and ran. They caugh my friend and I got away. Now the detective wants to talk to me. Do I have to call him, because I want a lawyer. What kind of charge will I get
Yes, you can be charged. Whether you can be convicted is another story. The burden to charge you is "probable cause" which is a relatively low standard. The burden to convict you is "beyond a reasonable doubt." This being said, an experienced defense lawyer may be able to contact the detective and take steps to make it less likely that you will be charged. At a minimum, a lawyer will be able to protect you from simple mistakes people regularly make when being investigated for a crime, which inadvertently make it more likely they get charged and convicted.

A first offense driving while license suspended carries a maximum jail sentence of 93 days and up to a $500.00 fine. You do not have to get any jail time. The specific sentence, including the potential of jail and up to 2 years of probation is determined by the judge. I would have to know in what city your DWLS ticket was issued and what judge was assigned before I could give you additional information. It is important that you hire an experienced lawyer if possible because he or she may be able to convince the prosecutor to let you plea to a reduced charge or maybe even one that does not appear on your criminal or traffic record.

My husband is been charged
Home invasion in the second degree is a felony punishable by imprisonment for not more than 15 years or a fine of not more than $3,000.00, or both. Second degree home invasion is defined as "a person who breaks and enters a dwelling with intent to commit a felony, larceny, or assault in the dwelling, a person who enters a dwelling without permission with intent to commit a felony, larceny, or assault in the dwelling, or a person who breaks and enters a dwelling or enters a dwelling without permission and, at any time while he or she is entering, present in, or exiting the dwelling, commits a felony, larceny, or assault."
There is no mandatory minimum sentence and, at least theoretically, a probation sentence is possible. This being said, jail time for home invasion is often the default sentence for most judges.

Your question has nothing to do with domestic violence. Domestic violence is an assault or an assault and battery between individuals in the same family, with a dating relationship or who reside with each other. Infidelity is not an assault. Maybe consult with a family law lawyer to determine your options.See question
Me and my boyfriend at the time now husband got I to a argument he was charged with a domestic violence and was cought by the police around me on bail how can I drop the charges on him
You cannot drop charges, just like you cannot press charges. The city or state is "pressing" the charges and you are the complainant witness. You cannot drop charges at any time. If you want the city or state to drop charges, your best bet is to consult with a private lawyer to discuss your options. There may be legitimate things you can do which would lead to that result but your situation would have to be closely analyzed to determine your rights.

I have a suspended license, and im on probation for a dui,i got pulled over but didnt go to jail? What should i do
This is what would help you the most. If your new case can be reduced to a civil infraction, the OWI court bay not have a legal basis to violate your probation. That has to be your goal. The second question is how do you make that happen? Well, that is where the lawyer comes in. An experienced lawyer will be in the best position to find an exception or technicality that will help you avoid a conviction and, if necessary, avoid jail if a VOP hearing is necessary.

Something I did almost three years ago and was never charged with anything has resurfaced. Just found out a warrant was issued. I plan on turning myself in but I don't have a lawyer or know what to expect. I have a clean record other than this.
The fact that you have to ask the question should be strong evidence to you that you need an attorney. Every word that is used and action taken in your case can make it more or less likely you will be convicted and/or go to jail. Your best hope of getting a good outcome to your case is with a really good criminal defense attorney.

Had an order to apper placed in my door for DV case. I don't want to testify or press charges. I've gone through this before but the court has always sent a summons this paper says subpoena to appear. Can I be taken to jail if I don't show up for ...
I've seen judge's order a warrant for a person who failed to appear under these conditions. It would be wrong though given that you were not personally served. If you want to have the matter resolved in a way that you will be happy with, your best hope is to hire a good lawyer to assist you and work towards accomplishing your objectives. If you want the charges dismissed, many lawyers are expienced at assisting people in your situation.See question

Sounds like you had a terrible night. Your concern about jail is understandable and fortunately, most judges do not generally impose jail for a first offense. This being said, you should not take anything for granted. I highly recommend you talk with your parents about retaining counsel. With a good criminal defense lawyer, there is always the possibility that he or she will be able to find a way to get the charges dismissed or reduced and that would also give you the best chance of avoiding jail and onerous terms and conditions of probation. If you cannot afford a lawyer, make sure you ask for an appointed attorney. Avvo is an excellent place to find a 10.0 rated criminal lawyer and many of us offer free consultations.See question

You can get a restraining order if she is not yet 18. You may have to start an incorrigibility petition if she will not listen to you.See question
