As the other folks answered, OR does not mean charges are dismissed. It means they dropped his bond and released him without a bond. He still has to face charges. And if he doesn't show up for court, he'll face a new charge of Failure to Appear. When he was released, the jail should have given him something that tells him his court date. If not, he needs to call the court and find out his court date; or, if he has an attorney, the attorney can find out.

In Arkansas, the age of consent is 16. However, many factors go into that. The 16 - year-old must have no mental deficiency that would make them incompetent. Plus, the 12-year-old CANNOT be in a position of trust or authority over the 16-year-old, such as a teacher, coach, mentor, babysitter, youth minister, youth group leader, etc. If they are, a sexual relationship with the 16-year-old could be considered a sex crime. Tell your friend to choose partners who are over 18, or keep hands off the 16-year-old until she/he turns 18.

It all depends on your local judge and prosecutor. A good criminal defense attorney may be able to get you a deal that allows you to keep your record clean once you have completed a probationary period. You really need to hire an attorney to negotiate for you.See question
Ex husband received motorcycle in our divorce 2 years ago. The motorcycle is in my name with him as a cosigner. He has yet to make a payment or transferred the vehicle into his name, therefore I'm making the payments. He won't give me the motorcyc...
He may be in contempt of the divorce decree, if it required him to make the payment or get it refinanced. This is not a debt collection issue; it is a divorce settlement agreement issue. You cannot get your name off it any other way. You made an agreement to pay the finance company, so regardless of what the decree says, as between you and the finance company, you owe it. However, as between you and your ex, the decree controls. Hopefully you went through a good attorney in your divorce and the decree/settlement agreement includes provisions for the ex to make the payment or refinance. If so, your attorney can file a motion for contempt and ask the court to hold him in contempt. Talk to your attorney or a good family law attorney in the jurisdiction where you got the divorce.See question

The DEA isn't the problem. The citizens of Arkansas voted down the medical Marijuana law in the last election. It should be on the ballot again in November. Hopefully, the vote will be favorable.See question

The burden of proof is always on the State. However, judges generally believe officers don't lie, so if the officer says you were left of center and you say you were not, the judge will generally take the officer's word over the defendant.See question

Since she is your "ex-girlfriend", I assume that means you never married. So, unless you gave a court order adjudication you as the child's father, you have no parental rights whatsoever. Your first step is to find the child and file a paternity action in the jurisdiction where she lives. Ask for custody or visitation in the paternity petition. If you are awarded visitation, then if she violates your visitation rights, she can be held in contempt. You really need to hire a good family law attorney.See question
Criminal tress pass case which happend 3 yeara ago. Now will be going to trial soon. The police didnt file a police report after i was arrested. As i said it was 3 years ago i was thinking statements made now could be hearsay. But i dont know.
As long as the statute of limitation has not run, they can prosecute you. There are no "motions for summary judgment" in criminal cases. And it would take way too long to explain hearsay, but no, statements made three years after the fact are not hearsay because of the time span. If the people who witnessed it testify, their testimony is not hearsay. You need to hire a lawyer. He or she can look at the evidence and make proper objections if there are any to be made.See question
I know a 17 year old who is being charged with sexual conduct with an 8 year old.. He was 16 when he touched the child. He didn't force the child to do anything. The child did it on his own free will.. The child touched the 16 year old and he touc...
Force is not required when the alleged victim of a sex crime is under the age of consent (16, in Arkansas). So there are two things you need to do: (1) do not post anything else online about this -- you've already revealed more information than should have been revealed in a public place, and prosecutors read through this site as well as we criminal defense attorneys; and (2) hire a good criminal defense attorney with experience in sex crimes involving children. The 17 year old could be charged as a juvenile, but could very well be charged as an adult -- that is usually the prosecutor's preference here in Russellville, and it's the prosecutor who decides which court to file in.
Be sure the 17 year old does NOT talk to the police or to anyone else. Under no circumstances. They will want to talk to him and they will tell him they just want to hear "his side of the story." No, they don't. They want him to make admissions so they can use them against him in court. If he's already talked to police, that's water under the bridge, but don't let him talk to anyone else, except his lawyer.
Good luck.See question

There are some devastating effects of being accused of child abandonment. It angers me that DHS has threatened you this way -- unfortunately, that does not surprise me at all.
Your questions cannot be answered here on a website. You're going to have to bite the bullet and talk to a local family law attorney who can advise you. Otherwise, if you are hit with a child abandonment accusation, DHS can put you on the Child Maltreatment Registry, and you could endanger your custody of your younger child (not to mention a whole other group of problems).
Since mom has filed for custody and you are willing to give up custody, your Kansas City lawyer might be able to draft an agreed order for the parties to sign to change custody back to mom. (You were told correctly that jurisdiction must remain in KC, where the initial custody decision was made.) Ultimately, it will be up to the KC court, and if the KC court awards custody to mom (through an agreed order or otherwise), I can see no reason that CPS would be able to charge you with child endangerment. Obviously, you can obey a court order to return custody to mom. But talk to a family law attorney here to find out your rights and responsibilities in ARKANSAS, with our DHS office. You do NOT want to maneuver your way through DHS without an attorney.
Good luck!See question
