My charges are assult with deadly weapon, and great bodily injury. I acted in self defense.
Sometimes changed circumstances will result in a plea offer being withdrawn. Often, for example, the DA will withdraw offers if you go forward with a preliminary hearing. At the same time, it may be possible to work for an even better offer. Talk to your attorney about trying to get that deal. If the GBI enhancement was added after you rejected the offer, it is likely that the offer will have been withdrawn as well.See question
I was sentenced to 120 days in san Diego..the jail was packed and they didn't take me
Make sure to inform your lawyer right away. If you were ordered to surrender by a certain date, you could potentially be in violation of a condition of probation or a court order, even though it's not your fault.See question
Today was the first time in my 24 years of living that I actually complied with my Jury Summons and after being held hostage in a literal holding pen at freezing temperatures, I was called in to the jury panel. I happen to know the lead defense co...
Yes, you should inform the court. Best bet would be to inform the Bailiff, who will let the court know, and then the judge will likely dismiss you.See question
I'm pretty sure this has to do with my community service. I looked at my papers once again and I thought I had til th end of October to finish. I was wrong, it was only until the end of September! Ugh. Please help, I definitely can't go to jail. A...
If you've done your community service, you'll probably be ok to go to the clerk on your own. If you've both missed court AND failed to complete a term of your probation, it's probably best to have an attorney go in for you.See question
A carrier lost a pkg, another dropped a pkg off to wrong location although i did receive, another forged a signature (i did receive that pkg as well), and another package's strangely goes blank the day of delivery with no update. That is 4 inciden...
There are some unusual cases out there where courts have agreed with the notion that certain items can have very high value. A case comes to mind where a dry cleaner ended up owing thousands of dollars for a pair of lost pants (which presumably had a much lower retail value). Anyway, this is not a criminal defense question, but something you could ask a civil lawyer about.See question
I was subject to testing, and there was an unexpected final result that was returned. The individual whom communicated the result was not a medical doctor. Upon receiving such results, I requested retesting of the sample which was denied, and I wa...
I'm not sure that the statute you cited applies (willful/wanton, great bodily injury). Still, those in the medical field generally would owe a duty to clients, and if their negligence caused you injury, you may be able to recover for your injuries. Consult with a civil plaintiff's lawyer. This is not a DUI or Criminal Law question.See question
I got a citation for not having a valid trolley pass in San Diego, CA. My court date is Sep. 9, 2016. I paid my total bail on Sep. 5, 2016 for $193. Do I still go to court?
Please see my answer to your other question. But it also would seem moot at this point, given that you're asking whether you need to appear in court a week ago.See question
I got a pink infraction citation (Notice to Appear) on 7-20-2016 for not having a valid trolley pass. My violation is MTDBO2/Ordinance#2. My court date is 9-22-16. About a week and a half later I received a yellow Proof of Service. Then my Courte...
No. Your case will be called as a "bail forfeiture" where the "bail" will just be applied to the fine (it's deliberately set to the same amount for this purpose). You would only need to go to court if you want to fight the case. It doesn't sound like the kind of violation that would result in a point on your license, so you're probably fine to just pay the fine (as you did) and not appear in court.See question
When filing for a 1203.4 dismissal I was unaware of the benefits of a 17b reduction. Is it still possible to go back and reapply for a 17b even after the case was dismissed by 1203.4
Yes. Se Meyer v. Superior Court (1966) 247 Cal. App.2d 133.
I recently did a 17(b) for a 1968 case that was dismissed pursuant to 1203.4 way back in 1971. Client can now, after nearly 50 years in the US, become a citizen.See question
My son stole $39.00 in merchandise. He was caught prior to leaving the store. They handed him a civil demand notice (without a civil code reference) stating he now owes $425.00. The store had me sign a paper stating he was released into my custod...
It's not a fine, it's a civil demand. Anyone can say "hey, you owe me money" but getting a civil judgement costs more than they can hope to recover if they're successful. They didn't even lose any merchandise, right? So what are their damages? Plus they'd have to have someone go to court to file a case, to argue it, etc. So can they sue with a misspelled name? Yes. Will they regardless of whether they spell the name right? No.See question
