This is not a civil rights question, as there is no constitutional right to drive, let alone drive after taking sleeping pills. That said, these cases have been won, whether at trial, or by securing a favorable amendment. Consult an experienced OWI defense attorney.See question
Cop arrested me and said he would drop some of the charges, the charges were never dropped. Why is that?0
This is not a question pertaining to violent crime. This is also not a live chat. Asking a question multiple times does not change the answers. Your post remains open for additional answers. As already noted in response to your previous question, no, it won't just go away. Whether the officer changed his or her mind, their supervisor changed it for them, or the DA added the charge back in after reviewing the case, you are going to have to defend on the merits. Get yourself a lawyer. Good luck.See question
Got arrested and they found the pipe and grinder but I was so compliant they said they would drop all but owi but just went to court and still have charges for marijuana? Why
Likely because they did find marijuana and drug paraphernalia and either the supervisor or the DA reviewing the case decided to charge you after reviewing the reports. You should be discussing this confidentially with your lawyer. If you don't have one, get one. Good luck.See question
My boyfriend been in jail for two weeks on a p.o hold? How long can they hold him on a p.o hold? He has no new charges.can they charge him at the last mintue?
The don't have to charge him with anything to keep him on a hold, or revoke him, they just need a rule violation. If they are pursuing revocation, he will remain in custody until the revocation proceedings are complete. If his underlying sentence was imposed a stayed, and he is revoked, he'll then commence that sentence. If sentence was withheld, he'll sit until he can see the judge. New charges can be issued anytime within the statute of limitations for the particular charge.See question
About a month ago my husband and I got into a fight and I called the cops and told the police I didn't want to press charges and they didn't have any evidence of anything. They arrested him and charged him with disorderly conduct and domestic abus...
The best way to try and prevent a no contact order as a condition of bond is to show up for court, tell the DA or clerk you are present and wish to be heard, and tell the judge in your own words why you don't want a no contact and aren't afraid for your safety. Many judges will want to hear from you in person on this to make sure you aren't being coerced. They do have evidence in the form of your original statements to police, and the State is pursuing the charges based on those statements.See question

Handling this yourself, and especially confessing to the DA at a pretrial that you attend unrepresented is not going to get you anything but convicted. If you are convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence, you will lose your right to possess a firearm forever. Even if all the charges you recite are misdemeanors, you face up to 21 months in jail, and $21,000 in fines. Get a lawyer. If you can't afford one, go see the public defender.See question
Out of curiosity, can someone completely uninvolved in a criminal case hire an appeal lawyer if the defendent was given a guilty verdict and was represented by a criminal lawyer? Or would the person not involved in the case have to hire that same...
The trial attorney does not have to handle post-conviction matters, and as noted, it is often better to have a fresh set of eyes handle post-conviction review, especially in a trial case where a specific appeal has not already been set up by trial counsel. Appeals must pursue claims of error, however, and are not simply requests for a do over. Third party contracts require the approval of the actual client, so a third party can not force someone to accept counsel they don't want, or to pursue an appeal they don't want to pursue. A third party can not pursue an appeal on behalf of someone else without their knowledge, consent, and participation.See question
Back in March I called the cops on my husband because he pushed my down the stairs and was drunk. I told the police I didn't want to press charges I just wanted him to get help for his drinking. Well they charged him with domestic abuse and disord...
You can't "stop this whole mess". Once you invite the system into your life, it is in. You can show up in court and let the judge know that you don't need a no contact order to protect you, so hopefully your husband will not be required to move out while the case is pending. You can also exercise your rights as the alleged victim to meet with the prosecutor, and tell them how you feel the matter should be handled. Your husband, however, needs a lawyer, as in addition to any fines or jail imposed by the court, if he is convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence as defined by federal law, he will lose his right to ever again possess a firearm. Contrary to what some state prosecutors tell defendants, just dropping the domestic abuse tag does not make that problem go away.See question

I stole a labtop from my family and sold it I also took a air tool and sold it at a pawn shop .i have a conviction of theft of moveable property what can I be charged with
At a minimum, theft of moveable property again. Depending upon the date and severity of the prior you could be charged as a repeater. If you broke in or entered without permission, you could be charged with burglary or criminal trespass in addition to theft. If you are stealing to feed a drug habit, and they catch you with drugs or drug paraphernalia, ad those to this list as well. Stop fooling around on line, see if AVVO can take down this confession, and get yourself a lawyer. Good luck.See question
