If my boyfriend gets sentenced to 1 year, and he's been in custody for 30 days now. How many credits will he receive and how much of the 1 year will he have to serve?
What was he convicted of? Certain charges carry longer percentages of time to be served. If anyone actually knew the Sheriff's math, then they would go buy a lotto ticket!!
If he was convicted of a non-violent crime and has no criminal history, he would probably serve between 40 to 90 days. If he has actually been in jail for 30 days, then he gets 60 days credit leaving about 150 days maximum confinement time.
Best to ask the lawyer who was there at the time of the plea. There are certain ways that the Judge can make sure that he does not get early release, such as putting off sentencing for a year....
I ordered a police clearance for a VAWA petition (I-360). It's been a few months since it was issued. Will USCIS still accept it or do I need to order a new one? and how long are police clearance letters usually valid for?
This is an immigration question. Were you the defendant or the victim? I think VAWA applies to undocumented residents who cooperate with the police, usually in a Domestic Violence situation. They then qualify for a U Visa.See question

If you are under 18 years old, you cannot possess marijuana. If your probation officer is telling you not to use it, don't! They can easily violate you and maintain jurisdiction until you are 25. So take a break from toking until you are off probation.
As far as what happens in Arizona, you are in California now. Each time you miss or have a dirty test, they can violate you. Prop 63 legalization is different if you are under 21. You should get into contact with the lawyer who has appeared with you in California.
My husband got 280 days in county jail....I know they count each day as 2 if im not mistaken and from what I heard overbooking is a issue also.My husbands lawyer is not much of a help,he has 10/10 reviews on here (not sure why) but that being said...
He would actually get one day for every day served Hyundai Ford a minimum sentence. That means on a 280 day sentence the longest to conserve is a hundred and forty days less any pre sentence custody time.
You don't mention what he was convicted of, as that also can affect how quickly the sheriff's release him. For instance a crime of violence will serve closer to 50% whereas someone driving on a suspended license will spend 10% or less. There is no Rhyme or Reason other than what is called Sheriff's math!
At some point you will get a call that he has been released in all likelihood. You can also sign up for the vine notification system on the LA county sheriff's website.See question

They should have appointed a public defender to represent you before placing you into custody. The fact that your license was actually valid could have been verified by the court clerk.
You should go back with an attorney to court tomorrow.See question

You should ask an employment lawyer, so please repost. I can just tell you that California is an "at will " State meaning you can be fired for no reason so you certainly can be rejected due to admitted drug use.
Your mistake was opening your mouth up before they asked you about any results that may have shown THC in your system. THC can stay in your system for months but it is only the active ingredient delta-9 that causes one to get high. That only stays in your system a short amount of time.
Just because it is legal in California to use marijuana does not mean that an employer has to hire you if you admit to it's use.
Repost this under employment law for a more concise answer as to the laws in California.See question
Can I hire an attorney in a criminal matter for one appearance similar to a limited scope in a civil case ? I have a case coming up and I cant miss work. Can I hire an attorney for that one day or will the judge / court not allow it ?
No, most Judges will not allow a "special appearance" in a criminal case. If it is a felony or Domestic Violence case you have to be there anyway. Once an attorney becomes attorney of record on your case, the Judge would have to allow him to withdraw.
Since you are working, i recommend you hire a private attorney for the entire case. These are not DIY projects. You will be up against a trained prosecutor and pro pers are held to the same standard....

I am so sorry to hear about this. You can use the "Find a Lawyer" tab here on AVVO to look for an experienced Personal Injury lawyer. They tend to be very discriminating on the cases they take because they have to actually put a lot of money into this type of case for experts etc.See question
I have a warrant its 40,000 its a misdemeanor I have no criminal background
Is this a current case or did you miss your first appearance. If you already have the PD appointed by the court, then go to their office asap to have them go to court with you. If you didn't go to your first appearance, then the Public Defender can't help you until the court appoints them after you fill out a financial information form.
What is the charge as $40,000 is a high bail for a misdemeanor!
If i sold myself as a prostitute and i had sex with someone for money, but they refused to pay, and i had never been payed for sex before, can i still be charged for being a postitute
Were you arrested? If so, you need an attorney to try to get the charges blocked. Obviously you are new at this since most clients in this line of work get paid up front!
It is a crime of words and if you agree to have sex for money, the crime has been committed.
And no, you can't file a police report for theft of services, in case you were thinking about that!
If you weren't arrested, then you will not be charged since the police were not involved.
