My brother broke into my home and i decided i needed to press charges. But now considering i dont want to see my family go to prison and im wanting to drop the charges if possible.
Your disinterest in seeing this case prosecuted MAY have an influence on the prosecutor. However, the decision on whether to drop charges would be the prosecutor's - even in the lands of MacDonald's. Was this The Hamburglar who was charged with Burgerly rather than Burglary?See question

Stop posting confessions!!!! Hire a lawyer to handle this. "The cop didn't see me drive" is just as much of an admission as "The cop didn't see me shoot that guy," and "The cops didn't see me rob that convenience store."See question

After 34 years, I've learned that YES is the answer to any question that starts with the words: "Can I be charged with _______________?" Your question is that type of question with different wording. The real question is "Can the State prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt?" or "Is there a way to get the charge dismissed?" To that second question, there is case law which says that a delay may be grounds for you to win your case (Back in my prosecutor days, I declined prosecution once on a case like this because of the delay - the cop got ticked off but then another lawyer won an issue in the Court of Appeals about whether a delay can deprive you of the reasonable ability to effectively defend yourself - I sent a copy of that appellate opinion to that upset cop!) The length of time may or may not be long enough when compared to those other cases - facts matter!See question
Police never charged him, sided with him on report, disregarded doctors reports, pictures, witnesses and other evidence.
This is well within the statute of limitations and CAN be charged. However, once the police and/or prosecutor make a decision on a case like this, it is unlikely that it WILL be charged. Hopefully, you have dumped the bum.See question
15 years ago, I had a evening with my friend of movies and pizza, she was 18 and I was 28... nothing sexual happened. Now, 15 years later she says she was actually 15 years old and that we had sexual relations...We've had zero contact for about 1...
You should NOT be posting factual accounts of something this serious to a public website. You need to sit down with a criminal defense attorney NOW. If you have been charged, the best time to have met with a criminal defense attorney is YESTERDAY. I suspect that you have been charged or expect to be charged with criminal sexual conduct in the third degree. Do not talk to anyone about the facts of your case - except for your attorney!!!!!!!!!!! NO TALKING TO THE POLICE!!! Mistake of Age is not a defense for some one who was more than ten years older at the time!!!See question

It is my understanding that there is a procedure for rehabilitation ten years after a lifetime ban. Call the
DPS at 651-296-2025 to make sure.
I was convicted of a DUI last year in Minnesota and lost my license for a year. It is getting to be about the time for the year to be up and I'm wondering what are the steps and requirements I will need to do to get my license back.
Go to find the closest DPS/DVS Written Testing office (find out by by going to www.mndriveinfo.org) Read Chapters 7, 8 and 9 of the driving manual, take the test. pay $680 reinstatement fee plus application fee (total a bit over $700). The DPS is offering a way to pay over time if you inquire. It's a sham your lawyer didn't advise you how to obtain interlock. You could have driven over the entire last year and also been informed of these steps. If you acted as your own lawyer, I guess you didn't do a very good job on that part at least!See question
I just plead guilty to a 168A.20.1 (5) Traffic - DWI - Operate Motor Vehicle - Alcohol Concentration 0.08 Within 2 Hours. My license was revoked for 90 days, as is standard. I didn't try or challenge the civil case, and my 30 days to do so has com...
Yes, if you have no prior DWI-related loss of license (implied consent revocation), you should be able to get a reduction from 90 to 30 days. Yes, you should go to DPS/DVS to reinstate your license. However, it may take time for the court to inform the DPS/DVS of your conviction to Driving .08 or More. That could delay the reinstatement of you license well beyond the 30 days. Tell your friends that the best course is always to hire an attorney to challenge the Implied Consent Revocation. In Hennepin county, your lawyer could have obtained a temporary reinstatement of your Driver's License putting a stop to the ticking of that 30 day clock. There are strategies to ensure that your revocation doesn't go beyond 30 days. And you get the added bonus of having a lawyer look at the cop's video, review records on the Datamaster Breath Machine and have a shot that the lawyer may find a mistake by the cops or their machine. If you think you did OK in court it was because of luck and not because of any knowledge or strategy.See question
I got my 2nd dui and have my cdl. I'm wondering if I can use my suspended imposition so that I don't lose my cdl
Not enough information to answer. Dis you receive a Stay of Imposition on your prior DWI or did you get it after pleading guilty to the second DWI? Did you lose you CDL on your last DWI? Stay of imposition of sentence shouldn't help you regarding your CDL, but it would be best to hire a lawyer to ask you the right questions and properly advise you. Your livelihood (CDL) is worth getting proper advice.See question
I have more then 1 dui so they seized my car after my recent dui. I was parked and sleeping in my car with the car on. can the still seize it if i was sleeping and not driving?
The state can seize your car if you were over .16, had a kid under 16 in the car or you refused the test at the police station (presuming your prior offense was in the last ten years). You have 30 days to challenge your license revocation and 60 to challenge the motor vehicle forfeiture. The State will argue you were in physical control, but who knows if they have enough to prove it. Even if they can do it, you may have other issues. Get a lawyer on this immediately.See question
