You will have a bench warrant that is currently outstanding. You must be present to have the warrant recalled and quashed. The judge wants to see your face and be assured that you won't miss anymore court appearances. Best to walk in with a lawyer so that you don't get remanded into the custody of the Sheriff.

I had a hearing 10 days ago. The tentative order was issued but the order was not yet signed by the judge. I was ordered to do something within 20 day. Did the time start to run or not yet? Any reference to the Ca Civil code, please.
I think you mean the temporary protective order- a tentative ruling is a ruling the judge is most inclined to grant or deny. It sounds like there is a temporary protective order in effect which is the same as a permanent order until the time of the permanent order is issued. In this case you were ordered by the court to perform something within 20 days, so get it done. If it is a stay away order, then stay away-don't second guess the court. Best, VictoriaSee question
I have a no-contact restraining order with my kids father and he's got his arraignment at court tomorrow and my able to go or is that against the restraining order
Yes you can go but why would you want to? That said, of course there are reasons we want to see our loved ones. You can remain anonymous in the audience and you are forbidden from speaking to custodies (not sure if he's in custody, you didn't specify). If out of custody, he is ordered usually to start 150 feet away from you so to save him any trouble, please don't talk to him. Best, VictoriaSee question
I was going to court for an no contact injunction which was suddenly placed on me. when i was questioned by police and arrested for stalking, when I was trying to contact my child's mother to see our son. The criminal charge was dropped by the sta...
Depending on your statement, this could be objected to as hearsay, however, it could be construed as an admission. It isn't good practice to advise a client what to say on the stand (especially in an open forum). Best to hire counsel to help you with this. Civil law is a different standard than criminal law. Whether or not the statement comes in depends on whether or not the court and counsel have the reporter's transcript from the other proceeding, the objections by counsel and the court's ruling.

my friend was caught shoplifting st khols and was charged since inwas in dressing room with him they wanted to charge me but didnt he was the only one arrested however we were both banned from khols and a week later recieved a letter in the mail f...
This is often referred to as "conspiracy" to commit theft. Since you received a notice in the mail for Civil damages you are a part of this case. I cannot in good conscience advise you not to pay it, especially since you're worried about them suing you. However, this issue comes up often and you can read back some of the questions and answers for people in your situation. The "ban" from Kohls is a STAY AWAY ORDER, which is usually a part of the plea bargain. The amount was under $950, so by statute it's a petty theft and/or commercial burglary.

My boyfriend got arreatesd because his dad said he had a recording of him saying he was going to shoot him .my boyfriend has a past of violence a gbi case prior
A PC 422 is a wobbler, meaning it can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor. If charged as a felony, it can sometimes be reduced to a misty via a 17b motion at prelim. Since he has a prior GBI I"m assuming it was assault with a deadly weapon which is a strike which DOUBLES any sentence he could face if charged and convicted of a 422. The threat sounds serious. He needs to lawyer up. Victoria.See question
Got caught stealing beer , I am 21 , almost 22 in December what can happen !
This is a petty theft but it's for a small amount of money since it was only beer (not sure how much but I'm assuming it's under $50.00 bucks). I have obtained infractions for matters such as yours. Since you're legal i.e. 21, y/o, your age is a non-issue. Best, Victoria. P.S. The DA might just let it go if the store owner chooses not to prosecute. If it was only one beer and not a keg or case, you might be ok. Keep an eye on your mail. VLC & Assoc.See question
We got in a huge fight he punched me n I ran in middle of traffic ran home called cops n they arrested him.. this is the first time he ever been in jail..
You cannot drop the charges. The fact that he punched you is serious. There are ways of dealing with domestic violence bc you are the state's key witness. You could hire an attorney to guide you through the process and maybe get some counseling for yourself. It doesn't sound like a very healthy relationship for you right now. I know it's hard to hear that. Best of luck, VictoriaSee question
I was supposed to surrender to serve a 3 year sentence. I didn't. Arrest warrant was issued. When I was caught I had pills an money. A supplemental police report was wrotten under the same D.R. number, was given to the D.A. but was not filed as a...
Sounds like you should have left well enough alone with the money but sometimes DA's miss things or file things late, you just don't know. Usually, a Cruz waiver is taken between plea and sentencing or surrender, meaning that if you pick up a case, are bound to the charge you plead to plus any additional time. It could be argued that you did your time and maybe the statute of limitations has run on the new charge, since you served 3 years? (not sure how much time you did) Definitely lawyer up and don't talk to law enforcement without your attorney present. Best, VictoriaSee question
My uncle was charge in a misdemeanor and sentence to 90 days in county, he is now in his first 30 days and he is concerned because he is being told a different released date. How can i help him get the right answers. Also he works 7 days a week in...
The sheriff's department is separate from the courts. Once he goes into custody, the sheriff's department takes over his release date. It tends to show the release date as further out than it actually is. Clients always call me in a panic but then they get released once their good time work time accrues. Best, VictoriaSee question
