  • How does a convicted felon regain the rights to possess a firearm ?

    I was convicted of a felony in 2002 and served my full sentence. Now I want to know what do I have to do to possess a firearm?

    Mekisha’s Answer

    Once you have been convicted of a felony, you cannot possess a firearm. The only exception would be if you were to receive a pardon by the gov.

  • Can I get a plea deal retracted?

    So I just found out that the attorney that was working for me was implanting tracking devices underneath my skin (he was a free lawyer, obviously). When I discovered this, I promptly removed said tracking devices. However, I did not discover these...

    Mekisha’s Answer

    You should talk to your doctor about these tracking devices.

  • Can he still apply for a 1224a. So that he can serve county time instead of state time.

    My son was on probation for a possession of a contraled substance. He was arrested again for the same charge. He has served two months. He is willing to take classes if needed. He has been a trustee in the kitchen for a month.

    Mekisha’s Answer

    I think you mean 12.44(a). One cannot apply for this. It is section of the Penal Code that allows the DA to sentence a state jail felony charge to county time. While this is a possibility on 2 state jail cases, it is unlikely that he would be offered a reduced sentence if he was re-arrested for the same charge his is currently on probation for. You need to hire an attorney for him or what and speak with the court appointed attorney.

    Mekisha’s Answer

    Yes, you can and will. If you have a bond, you need to post it. Otherwise, get an attorney lined up to go to court with you and get your case resolved or get a bond set for you asap.

  • Can I get in trouble for accidentally sending that pic to my little cousin?

    I tried to send a texted message to my girlfriend yesterday and it included a partially nude pic...but I somehow accidently sent it to my 16yr old cousin!

    Mekisha’s Answer

    The short answer is yes. If it was really an accident, then the cousin and parents probably won't report you to the police, right.... If you think its possible that this could turn into a bigger deal, then you need to talk to an attorney directly before answer any questions or responding to the situation further.

  • Can a judge put you in jail for not getting an attorney

    I am in criminal court and have been out if a job for 3 months I asked for a court appointed attorney and was denied because I was out on bond. The judge ordered me to get a job and an attorney by my next court date which was only two weeks time....

    Mekisha’s Answer

    It has happened and could happen to you. Hopefully, the Judge was just making threats to make you hurry up and get an attorney by the next setting. Maybe the attorney you are talking to currently can work some kind of deal with you to go to court and tell the Judge that they anticipate being hired by the next setting, so the Judge is not as mad.

  • What can I expect when I re-enter the US with 2 outstanding arrest warrants. I am a US citizen.

    I have been traveling abroad for 5 years. I have a warrant in one Indiana county for breaking probation (DUI related). I have a second warrant in another Indiana county for failure to appear. The charges were for driving on suspended license and D...

    Mekisha’s Answer

    It just depends on how the warrants were entered into NCIC. I have had clients get detained and arrested at the airport. The safest way to handle it is to post a bond on the warrants. That is the only way to be certain you wont be detained and/or arrested and extradited.
