    Arthur’s Answer

    generally speaking, I usually get these types of cases dismissed. If this is your first arrest there is a diversionary dismissal program. We may even be able to get your attorney to pay for your legal fees pursuant to labor code 2802.

  • What does 9999999999 mean for case number?

    My case number Reads 9999999999, I don't understand why?

    Arthur’s Answer

    You are probably are looking at inmate locator and the person you are looking up was recently arrested. It takes sometime to get a court case number, so when the person is arrested and awaiting arriagnment, the inmate locator will put 999999 as the case number until they get the actual case number. An attorney can call and get the case number from the court clerk.

  • My juvenile son got a ticket for pc 415 and on it stated infraction and now we got a letter in the mail stating misdemeanor why?

    Why would the ticket say one thing and then get that in the mail when we haven't even been to court yet.

    Penal Code 415, commonly known as disturbing the peace is a "wobblette;" it can be filed either as an infraction or misdemeanor. The DA gets to decide how to file the case regardless of what it says on the ticket.

    Arthur’s Answer

    Urinating in Public is what we call a "wobblette." The prosecuting agency has the discretion to file it as a misdemeanor or an infraction. If the case is filed as a misdemeanor, you are entitled to a a jury trial. If the case is filed as an infraction, you will only get a judge trial, unless you insist to have it filed as a misdemeanor.
