  • When your out on bail on a misdemeanor charge and your on felony probation,and get sighted out on anothet misdemeanor charge?

    Im on felony probation and bailed out and caught another misdemeanor charge.What can i expect?

    Greg’s Answer

    I would certainly expect to be remanded into custody, both for a probation violation and pending resolution of you two active misdemeanor cases. You need a very good, experienced criminal defense attorney who appears regularly in the courthouse or courthouses involved. Use your time out of custody now to find and retain that attorney to help you. Good luck to you.

  • Im bailed out on a misdemeanor and got sighted out on another on felony probation whats gonna happen?

    What will happen when i contact probation monday?

    Greg’s Answer

    Your probation officer could arrest you. Remember, they are part of law enforcement. Mr. Dane's suggestion to call your attorney today or first thing Monday is very good. The attorney may want to contact the probation officer and discuss matters.

  • is it almost closed case and as hard to defend if my nephew has been charged with a murder w /gang encha

    my nephew just turned 18 and almost has been out of the last juvenile sentence that he served less then 6 months they have him as a known gang member and now the serious charges carry a gang char...

    Greg’s Answer

    Your questions should be asked to your nephew's attorney. He has one, as your nephew is facing serious, serious charges. It is extremely tough to answer your questions well without knowing more facts, but indeed, he is looking at a possible life sentence with murder and a gang enhancement. If his current attorney does not seem mentally engaged or zealous, ask you nephew if wants a new attorney and if he does, hire a very experienced private criminal defense attorney. Good luck to your young nephew.

  • What do we do?

    My fiance's son was " arrested " a few hours ago. All we know is that he called his dad and asked him to go get his truck, and that he was going to jail. We arrived at the location and there was crime tape everywhere. Some detectives came out an...

    Greg’s Answer

    Sorry to hear about this. Mr. Dane's advice is very good. Your son should tell the police he respects them, but he is going to assert his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent under advice of counsel. You can help him by retaining an experienced criminal defense attorney who regularly appears in the courthouse at issue. Good luck to you all and your fiancé's son.

  • Can I have my corporal injury to spouse charge dropped?

    I was arrested on corporal injury to spouse over a sexual fantasy gone bad. She freaked out and pressed charges but wants them to be dropped. I live in California so the state is taken over. If she agrees that it was a blurred line, can it be drop...

    Greg’s Answer

    It is possible if she consented to the battery at first as part of the fantasy, but then did not make clear that her consent was no longer effective. To get the prosecutor to dismiss charges, you will need a very very good criminal defense attorney with lots of experience in the courthouse at issue. Good luck to you.

  • Do I have to pay for a Civil Demand Letter associated with recoverypay.com?

    Hi, I was caught shoplifting at Kohl's in Los Angeles, California & when being held up, I was obviously asked to return the items and they asked for my social, ID, email, address & all that. No actual cops were involved but they said I was going t...

    Greg’s Answer

    You should not pay the demand, however, I would give it to your attorney if you are charged with shoplifting at some point. As to being placed in the National Retail Theft Database, that should not affect you in applying to jobs, unless you apply to work at a retail store perhaps. Whether you must disclose this in applying for jobs will matter on the questions on the employment application. Good luck to you.

    Greg’s Answer

    He should retain an attorney. It appears he was selling, as he had a scale and text messages involving sales. He faces prison time, which might to served in county jail depending upon his prior criminal history. The medical marijuana card won't help in a sales case.
