    Warren’s Answer

    Your son was undoubtedly represented by an attorney at the initial court proceeding who may have advised not to waive extradition. Texas has only 30 days to pick him up.

    It is time for you to get a lawyer. It may be possible to have your case completely dismissed. Do not move any further on your own.

    Warren’s Answer

    You should retain an attorney to sort through the prosecution's evidence. Remember that you may be charged if you now claim that you lied to the police and filed a false complaint. A criminal defense attorney will evaluate the case and recommend the proper course of action.

    Warren’s Answer

    You should seek representation immediately and never address the court personally. Your lawyer will review your case and do all of the talking in court. Your lawyer will file all motions and perhaps a complaint to the Judicial Inquiry Board if appropriate.

  • WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT COURT

    I have a no bond warrent for not appearing to a court date.The court date was for anger management classes that I have now completed.WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT COURT??

    Warren’s Answer

    You must move quickly to file a motion to quash and recall the warrant and address your reason for not appearing on your scheduled court date. Have evidence of your classes completion and an apology if not completed timely. If all other conditions imposed by the court were completed satisfactorily, your warrant is likely to be recalled and your sentence will terminate or run it's course through termination.

    • Selected as best answer

    If you qualify for expungement and are granted relief by the court, the Chicago Police Department is required to expunge ALL records, physical AND electronic. Your arrest information will be deleted from the CPD site. If you need a governor's pardon to qualify for expungement, you must first file a Petition for Executive Clemency.

  • What happens if I'm out on BOND and I get indicted by the grand jury?

    What can happen if I'm out on BOND and I get indicted by the grand jury on a completely different case. I know the next thing is arraignment but what I would like to know is what happens at it.

    Warren’s Answer

    The indictment itself in the new case will not violate your bond conditions unless it is alleged that you committed another offense while on bond. A new bond, however, will be set on the new case at your arraignment. If you do not already have a criminal defense attorney, you better retain one soon.
