My son was murdered and I co signed for his bail fee prior to his unfortunate demise for a case he was fighting that was dismissed. Am I legally bound to continue paying his debt.
First of all, my condolences. As,far as paying the balance of the premium, that is the definition of a cosigner. The bail agent's work was completed when your son was bailed out. However, contact them and perhaps they will lower the balance. The issue of Guilt is not their concern. Just getting someone out of jail right away. Once they do that, they have earned their feet.See question

More facts are needed to give you an accurate answer. Do the 456 days include credits or 456 actual days served in which case he should be released immediately. Most County Jail sentences are served at no more than 50%. The best person to answer this question of course is the lawyer that was in court at the time of the sentencing.See question
Victim appeared psychotic in speech and behavior, and seemed a danger to themselves, due to extreme lag, self imposed starvation, weight loss & limited hydration, and an emotional state due to a recent breakup with a significant other.
There is no expungment statute in California. That being said, a 5150 Hold is not a conviction for any crime; it is a 72 hour stay at a psychiatric hospital to determine if the subject is a danger to himself or others. It can be extended another 14 days if there is still a threat.See question
Im 17 and I got caught shoplifting from JcPenny. I have a court date later next month and I was wondering if it was possible for the case to be dropped because I am a juvenile and it was my first time? I was arrested and taken to the police statio...
Yes, it is possible that your case can be handled informally by the probation department. That will depend on the amount of the theft as well as your lack of Prior record. If the case is in fact filed, you will be eligible for diversion pursuant to welfare and institutions code section 654. That will ultimately result in the case being dismissed. Be prepared to show your attendance record as well as grades and any awards or extra-curricular activities that you have done. Including that any community service that you have done. If you can't afford a lawyer the court will automatically appoint the public defender to represent you.See question
I have this friend in jail he was currently doing time in ventura youth correctional facility but he got into a fight and they send him to county he is 18 alredy and i was checking on the inmate search that he has all this charges on him Code:pc...
Your friend will be appointed a public defender if he can't afford a private attorney. He is looking at a possible State Prison sentence for the PC 69 charge.
The fact that he was doing time at the Juvenile facility already means that case was serious, or he would have gotten Home on Probation or some other term. Then getting into a fight while in custody shows a lack of appreciation for his situation and that needs to change.
My family member lives in CA with me but we are from NJ, my relative does NOT drive at all in CA. Family provides transportation, so a CA DL was never obtained. My family member recently had a seizure at home here in CA and paramedics came. Later ...
Yes, they can, and did, suspend his PRIVILEGE to drive in California, where they have jurisdiction over all drivers, regardless of what stateam they are licensed in. They may also send Notice to whatever state he is licensed to drive in.
He has the right to request a Hearing (it is actually an Interview or Re-examination) at the DMV where his physician fills out a form (available on-line or they will provide one) explaining that the seizure was either a one time event or that he is taking medication to prevent another seizure. The doctors are mandated to report incidents of loss of consciousness to the DMV.
As a family member, you should be concerned about what would happen if he had a seizue while driving and injured or killed someone. Hopefully it is manageable and he doesn't have any more events.
If he was just visiting and won't be here long, I would focus on the diagnosis.

The most he will serve is 90 days less any presentence credits. It also depends upon what the violation and what the underlying conviction are.
His lawyer would be the one with the credits etc to give you the most accurate answer.
I am self represented and writing my own brief. The case is overly burdensome, and I would like to avoid filing redundant evidence and abbreviate where possible.
By your own question you should realize that it is overly burdensome; because you are not a lawyer! If it is a brief for an Appeal, you should hire a lawyer to do the paperwork; you can still argue in pro person, but at least your Brief won't get rejected for technical errors or not complying with Rules of Court.
You should reclassify under Appeals.
