  • Will I likely or likely not be charged for being accused of saying " I'm going to swing on everyone"

    Hello I live in Bakersfield CA. I was working for commerce energy door to door. Well one day my boss stated that two other employees and myself said something to another employee which wasn't true. So out of the 3 of us I was the only one to speak...

    Anthony’s Answer

    That comment without more, is unlikely to merit any charges. It's hardly a "criminal threat" under PC 422 because it doesn't really carry the immediate threat of harm to a particular person.

  • What are some valid defenses/arguments to fight extradition?

    What are some valid defenses/arguments to fight extradition?

    Anthony’s Answer

    There are many potential answers, but the most common is that the person in custody is not the person being sought by the foreign authority. There could also be defects with the charges in the requesting jurisdiction - best to hire a good attorney and determine whether its even a good idea strategically to fight extradition or hurry up and go fight the case in the other jurisdiction.

  • My 21 year old friend used fb to ask a 15 year old boy in another country to become his boyfriend. is that a federal sex crime?

    my 21 year old friend used facebook to ask a 15 year old boy in another country to become his boyfriend. he also asked to hug and kiss that boy. is that online solicitation? is that a federal sex crime?

    Anthony’s Answer

    It is going to depend on exactly what your friend ask the other boy to do. Best to advise your friend not to even attempt to make contact with minors over the internet for such purpose. To the extent that the internet is used to reach out of minors, a number of federal laws could be used to prosecute such individuals and the consequences can be severe.

    Anthony’s Answer

    Of course it depends on the restriction, however, if you are able to drive "in the course and scope of your employment" you can drive the company truck as long as the insurance company will properly insure you. Otherwise you are driving without valid insurance which can violate your probation (assuming youre on probation)

    Anthony’s Answer

    You can go to lacourt.org and "online services" there you can use the criminal defendant index to see if a complaint was filed. Otherwise, you can call the City Attorney's office, depending on the city, or you can contact a bail bondsman or an attorney. If it is a hit and run, as you say, "the person" should hire an attorney to intervene and try to resolve the matter in advance of any charges. If charges have already been filed, an attorney can arrange for a surrender and release without bail, and then defend the case.
