My significant other is being held on a probation violation for supposedly failing to obey all laws (which he has proof to dispute) but it's been almost a week and no charges have been filed on anything other than the probation violation, which is...
Yes. A probation violation can be alleged without any underlying crime charged. In fact, often prosecutors elect to forego charging a new crime when charging a probation violation will likely result in jail time. The logic is as follows: probation violations don't come with the same rights as a charge on a new crime. Probation violations are not entilted to a jury trial and only entitled to a lower standard of proof than new cases.See question

You are not permitted to break federal law, even if state law somehow permits it. Similar to employment issues, California legalized marijuana for recreational use. The federal government has not - you sell marijuana at your own peril -- you will be violating federal law even if state law permits it.

Your post is somewhat unclear, however, you should refrain from making any further statements to law enforcement and talk only to your lawyer, whether that's lawyer you hire, or one appointed to you in court. The recommended bail is just that: a recommendation of a bail amount. When you appear in court, the judge can decide not to require bail because your appearance in court demonstrates your willingness to appear and deal with the case.See question

See 18 U.S.C. section 922 (g)(9). It appears you are still prohibited, regardless of the "dismissal" under CA Penal Code section 1203.4. However, if you want a more definitive answer, you might have to retain counsel and have them go over your specific situation and render the proper advice.See question

I was pulled over for a DUI in Alameda County in November 2015. I was then arraigned on charges in February 2016. I pled not guilty at the arraignment. Next court date was never set, and it's now November 2016. What should I make of this? I'm smar...
I agree with my colleague - if you were arraigned you had to have the next date set - it's something the court would do in the ordinary course. If you didn't get the date, you should go the clerk's office and get a copy of the docket, which should reflect hte next court date.See question

There is no requirement that you go to jail, however, cases like this depend on the facts and circumstances, one's criminal history and other factors. The best thing to do is to meet with an attorney and go over all the details of your case and plan your defense. It is impossible to guess what the outcome of the case will be based on a few lines.See question
