I am not entirely sure that I understand your question. However, habeas corpus is a special action that seeks an order to a jail/prison executive to release a prisoner.See question
I got three tickets (driving without a license, expired tags, and no insurance) in my ex's car. I was living in Tampa, FL at the time. I failed to attend my court hearing or pay my tickets, due to being in the middle of a move out of state. This a...
It depends on the local court's requirements. Often, the court is concerned with the fines. If you settle up with the court on the fines and you do not contest the tickets or, can negotiate reduced charges and fines you may be able to work it out without having to go to the state. My advise would be to contact an attorney in the location in which you received the tickets.See question
I got an Underage Drinking charge two years ago when i was 18. I am now 20 and the suspension for 3 months just began in January. I got a Driving During Suspension in April.(I did not send my license in on time to count suspension when it could ha...
In Michigan, you would face a suspension that is "like" or in other words, the same length as the underlying suspension that you were serving. One way that you can avoid an additional suspension is to resolve the case in such a way that the court will not report the incident to your department of motor vehicles. In Michigan, that would certainly be a possibility. Hire an experienced lawyer.See question
Blood test at a hospital.
You have a case but you should choose a lawyer carefully. Make sure the lawyer understands the science behind chemical testing as well as the law. There are several things to examine when considering the reliability or accuracy of a blood test.
More than anything else, the question for a fact-finder will be whether you were impaired because of drinking. Many other issues will be in play apart from just the blood test. Good luck.See question
my brother was collecting unemployment benefits while he was working full time, he owns 13,000.00 could he go to jail for that?
The short answer is yes. However, whether your brother would likely go to jail is a totally different issue and I need more facts about your brother's criminal history, if any and the facts of the case.See question
Can photo radar traffic tickets be transferred between different owners if it is the driver? I recently purchased a vehicle from my company that I received two photo radar tickets in while driving. The tickets were returned by the company sayin...
The ticket for a moving violation is to the driver and not the vehicle. In Michigan, the agency that wrote the ticket would be required to prove who the driver was or, put differently, that the person answering the ticket was the driver. Check your state's vehicle code to determine whether there is a burden put on the owner of the vehicle to prove that he/she does not have to prove identity as an affirmative defense. Such a statute is unconstitutional burden-shifting in my opinion but it certainly would present a hurdle to the vehicle owner in winning ... at least in the short term.See question
the drivers address was entered on the citation different from the drivers license.
Absolutely depending on whether it's simply typographical or a substantive mistake. The presiding magistrate should dismiss this ticket. In Michigan, the magistrate is required to dismiss if the ticket is the only charging instrument and does not have enough information to give proper notice to the citizen.See question
My son was charged with disorderly conduct for defending himself against a bully that put his friend in the hospital last weekend. When the police arrived the officers told my son and his friend, that my son would be in no trouble. Then the off...
I am not exactly sure what the officer said, nor am I exactly sure of your situation, but the basic answer to the "is fighting illegal" question is this: every person has a right to defend himself or herself. The limit to that right is when you go beyond the amount of force necessary to defend yourself. For example, the old adage of bringing a knife to a gunfight is one that most of us know: the opposite scenario of bringing a gun to a knife fight would be an example of using more force necessary to defend yourself. You would be subject to a criminal charge under that set of facts that I used in my example. However, if your son fights to defend himself from a reasonable fear of an imminent threat of bodily harm then he did not commit a crime. I have had many cases involving a mutual fight and usually those cases are resolved favorably for the defendant ... although sometimes only after a jury has to sort it out.See question
