  • Can I ask or tell my probation officer not to talk to me ugly or bully me .

    I had received probation for a drug charge . I was appointed a probation officer who is bullying me and talks to me as if I am not human and I want to tell her to stop and respect me. This charge is my first ever in life and it was because I took ...

    Macy’s Answer

    Of course you can. But all that's going to do is increase the tension between you. Some POs are jerks. I recommend that you grin and bear it to avoid further conflict. That person weilds a tremendous amount of power in your life. Whether or not you are guilty is irrelevant now. You entered a voluntary plea and must complete your probation requirements to your officers satisfaction.

    Macy’s Answer

    Absolutely. Warrants do not expire. They likely issued a warrant at large for your arrest. You will need to turn yourself in and post a bond or risk getting arrested at any time. HOWEVER, you do not have to and I would suggest SHOULD NOT make any statement to the police. They are not "just trying to clear this up." And they are certainly not trying to help you out. They are building a case against you. You need to hire an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. That person can talk to you about the facts in greater detail and advise you properly from there. Most of us offer free consultations. Just start calling around.

  • Can a clerk in a probation officer's office sign a motion to revoke probation, or, is the PO required to sign it?

    My daughter's case was set with 10 years probation in May of this year. On June 29, she was arrested on a MTR (motion to revoke). When shown the papers while being booked into the jail, her PO's name was nowhere on the papers, nor was the ADA's ...

    Macy’s Answer

    The DA has to sign the Motion to Revoke and the Judge has to issue the warrant. However, this does not mean that the revocation cannot proceed. The State can simply file a new motion if the signature is, in fact, a clerk's and not a DA's (although I would be surprised if you or your daughter knew every DA's signature--the DA that signs the motion does not have to be the same DA that signed her plea paperwork).

    Macy’s Answer

    No one is going to be able to tell you in advance what the outcome of his cases will be. I see the version of events that you have posted. In my experience, the version of events contained in the State's evidence will be different--maybe a little, maybe a lot. It sounds like he will be arguing self-defense. His attorney will receive all of the State's evidence, will review it with him, and will be better able to advise about the strengths and weaknesses of his case at that time. He needs to start interviewing attorneys as soon as possible.

  • Can you be arrested for being suicidal?

    If you get really drunk and become suicidal and tell the bartender that you are suicidal and they call the police - will the police come? If so what will they say or do? Will they automatically take you to jail or a hospital or what?

    Macy’s Answer

    They cannot arrest you, but they can transport you to a mental health facility if they determine that you are a danger to yourself or others.

    Macy’s Answer

    There are several steps that come to my mind. One is to continue to make police reports of any threatening or harassing behavior. Another is to contact the DAs office about seeking a protective order. And finally, hire a family law attorney to get temporary custody orders in place.

  • If I was arrested on January 30, 2001 and the complaint (information) wasn't filed until March 2002, can I quash the indictment?

    Someone who isn't me (SWIM) was arrested for Class A Misdemeanor Assault / Family Violence on or near January 31, 2002. They posted bond and was released the next day, but the information / complaint against them wasn't filed until late March. ...

    Macy’s Answer

    No for so many reasons. If this is a misdemeanor, it would be highly unusual for there to even be an indictment. A motion to quash would not have been the proper legal vehicle under those facts anyway. If a plea has already been entered, it's too late to file motions in the case. This person has two options. One is to hire an appellate attorney to file a writ arguing some legal grounds to reopen the case. This will be very expensive and a long shot. The other is to seek a pardon from the governor, which is also a long shot. It is extremely difficult to undo a voluntary plea.

  • Attorney told guy to evade arrest.

    Asking for a friend who isn't internet savvy: Friends brother had a few charges which ate irrelevant to question. Current attorney told said friends brother to not show up to probation until his court date. Guy got arrested for evading arrest. Fri...

    Macy’s Answer

    Failing to report to probation with an active warrant is not evading arrest. If he is charged with evading, it is because a police officer was trying to detain him in the field and he ran.

    As for the remainder of your question, it's too vague for me to understand the details and respond to accurately (eg, "take care of court and such" "fill out paperwork").

    Your friend is always free to hire another attorney if he is not comfortable with the one he has. He is also entitled to ask for a refund of any "unearned" portion of the fee he paid the attorney (That's the way the state Bar evaluates a fee dispute). I doubt he will get a full refund but he may get a good portion of it back.

  • Missed Court Date, What to do now?

    My brother missed the court today and now it's well over business hour to go to court to clear things up. An attorney was attained in the beginning, but due to some legalities/practice reasons, the attorney couldn't take on the case and failed to ...

    Macy’s Answer

    It is very difficult to withdraw a plea. What he needs is a new attorney immediately. I don't see the relevance of the original attorney not being able to represent him. If he had appeared at court as instructed, the court would have reset his case so he had time to hire a new attorney. The reason he has a warrant is because he failed to appear at court. He needs to appear at court with a new attorney asap.
