My fiance needs a pro bono lawyer, he's been in jail for a month now with this on going bogus case, we were at my residence outside, he was knocking on the door, one thing led to another the police were called and this situation was completely blo...
If he's been in jail a month, he already has a public defender.See question
Calculating prison time four years at half how much time will he do he's all ready done 5 months so would that put him at 12 months and then 7 months left 19 months
Four divided by two is two. Two times twelve is twenty-four. Twenty-four minus five is nineteen. So you are correct. Pretty simple.
He may receive more time off, based on what happens in the CDCR. We can't tell you how much. He should look into whether he can do fire camp.See question
Just want to know how much time I will serve on four years at half
Half of four is two. You didn't say how you arrived at the four years. Did you use the high term? If so, then two is the correct answer. If however, you took two and doubles it for a strike, that time would be served at 80% or 85%, not 50%.
If you have two prior strikes, you could be looking at a sentence of 25 to life. Also, if you have a DV prior, you might possibly be at risk of having another allegation added to your case. We can't tell you because you did not include enough information in your question. Talk to your lawyer about any possible special allegations in your case and how they might be stricken. Good luck.See question
She has no money and her public pretender isn't helping .she didn't steal her own child
She has been appointed a public defender, that is the "pro bono" lawyer. Pro bono doesn't mean free, it basically means for the public good. You haven't given any reasons why a lawyer would consider taking such a serious matter for free.
She should work with her appointed counsel. Calling the attorney "public pretender" isn't going to help her situation. Good luck to her.See question
Charges of H&S 11352 dismissed 5 years by penal code 1203.4 but I was denied to reduce the charges to misdemeanor is it realistic to try applying to have the charges reduced again ?
No, it's not realistic. That charge cannot be a misdemeanor.See question
Haveing a hard time and i keep going to jail anyway so i figure just do the time and be done with it
You didn't provide enough information to answer your question. It depends on what your conviction was for. You can also ask your attorney who should have the records about your conviction. Good luck.See question
5 siblings recently settled a civil lawsuit against 2 other siblings for elder abuse of our mother. Mother died at the age of 95 in 2014 without the 5 siblngs being able to see her for many months. In 2013, the 2 siblings came to her house a...
It doesn't sound like a criminal elder abuse case based on what you wrote. You can contact law enforcement to see if they will take a report. They will then decide whether to forward it to the DA. The DA will decide whether or not to file charges.See question
The judge asked my lawyer to file the above dui refusal motions that same day on Sept 19th and he did. The judge wanted to grant enough time for oppositions and replies. Since the case is already a year old taken over from a public defender the D...
The judge will always let the DA respond. Remember that your lawyer chooses the strategy, not you. You should be asking these questions of your lawyer, not lawyers online.See question
Dcfs stayed in my life for 2 years fo.Dv they found out that i smoked weed and ask me to drug test i had my license and they just wanted to see were my levels was. They ask me to do some classes befor it became a case and i agree to it me and my h...
No, they are testing for a variety of drugs, not just cannabis. If your levels go up or you test positive for something else, you will probably have problems with the court. You should cooperate with all requests, that is the easiest way to get them out of your life. This is a dependency matter and you should speak to your dependency lawyer (LADL) about any other questions you may have.See question
When i was 17 & 5 months old i got in a dui car accident with a couple of friends. I got hurt and got flown to a hospital where they treated me for a week or two. Then i had to go to court and they told me i can get convicted for 8 felonies. Four ...
Your question is a little confusing, since we don't have the documents in your case. You should ask the attorney who represented you. It sounds like you did DEJ (Deferred Entry of Judgment). But make sure that you disclose everything and are completely honest in answering any questions in your job search . Good luck.See question
