What do I do. Turning my self in I'm four days late I'm on way to turn myself in now as I type
Yes you need to contact your lawyer asap. He or she may need to add you back on calendar to see the judge to get you a new surrender date. The jail will usually not accept someone if they are late. Good luck!See question
I was pulled over and arrested for DUI early Friday morning. I actually have very little to no memory of what occurred; I was at a birthday party Thursday evening and the next thing I clearly recollect is being in a holding cell around 8:30am. The...
Yes you should hire an attorney to represent you at the DMV and in court. Video, audio and other evidence can be subpoenaed and just because you don't remember the events doesn't necessarily mean there is no defense. If you can afford to do so, it would be in your interest to hire a local DUI attorney--an attorney who specializes in DUI defense. Good luck!See question

Sounds like a scam! Definately don't have any further contact. Detectives don't act that way. Just ignore any further calls or texts and if you answer phone by accident, hang up.See question
It was a old case from 2014 petty theft (m) I was give 5 days community services which i didn't complete so a judge sentences me to 45 days in Lynwood jail
No one can tell you for sure. It's up to the Sheriff Department. Since the Los Angeles jails are pretty crowded, it is highly unlikely you will do even half your sentence. I've seen people serving about 10 percent of their sentence, but this is for the men's jail. The female jail could be less crowded but I have seen female defendants get released on non violent misdemeanor offenses after serving about 20 percent or less of their sentence. You just won't know until you surrender and get released, but statistically you have a good chance of getting out early. Good luck!See question
Need help to have all these charge drop or combine. Any advice? I m looking for a paid attorney at low cost.
You should look for a good attorney in the location where one or more of these cases are being heard. Many attorneys will give a discount if they are being retained on more than one case. If the cases are all in different jurisdictions or counties, you may need to hire more than one lawyer and have those lawyers coordinate with one another to get the best outcome for you. Many good lawyers are on this website so look for someone local to the court who will be familiar with the prosecutors and judges. Good luck!See question
I went to court on dec. 15th 2016 I called and was told they had a decision 8 weeks after my court date and then was told it was in writing a week later I was told it is in editing is this a good sign of or bad sign.
Hello, I don't quite understand your question. Are you asking about the filing of charges in a criminal case? Sometimes the prosecutor does not file charges prior to the arraignment date and they send out a letter informing you that the court date has been changed to a later date. This could be because the prosecutor's office is back up or due to further investigation. If the prosecutor decides to reject the filing of charges then there will be no case and most prosecutor offices will provide a letter stating the case was rejected. If you are given a court date you must appear on that date or else the court will issue a warrant. Best option is to consult with a local criminal defense attorney to help you obtain further information about the status of your case, if possible, and to provide you with good legal advise based upon the particular facts of your case.

A judge has sentenced me to install an IID on my vehicle within 60 days of a guilty DUI ruling. Due to a health incident in the family I was forced to delay my Interlock Ignition Device installation service until the 61st day (Today) and I will no...
Most likely judge will not punish you for being a few days late. But it all depends on who the judge is and what your past history is on probation. You may want to contact a local criminal defense attorney to get a more thorough answer. Good luck!
I have a warrant for my arrest and a warrant to remove my children.
Show up to court early in the morning and go to the clerks office to ask to have your case placed on the calendar to recall the warrant. You will be able to request a public defender. This is the first step to getting your affairs in order. You should go to the court ASAP because you can be arrested anytime if there's a warrant out for your arrest. Good luck!See question
Ud judgement was finialized Aug 26 16 to vacate the property. The house has been vacant ever since. We visit friends down the street. We were not able to take all of our things. On oct 8/ we entered the property with the same key we used when we ...
You may be in violation of tresspassing but I agree with my colleague that a prosecutor would unlikely be able to prove a theft. Unfortunately many people get charged and/or convicted in large part because of incriminating statements they make when questioned by the police. So if you are contacted by law enforecment, it's time to call a local criminal defense lawyer. At this point I would not do anything except remain silent.See question
I am a very dumb, 20-year-old student, who MAY end up going to court for petty theft. I recently ended my time as an employee at my school and ended up taking a parking permit that was only for full-time faculty members to park in areas that every...
I'm a criminal defense attorney in Pasadena where it appears your case will be handled. I can tell you from my experience you will likely be eligible for diversion and be able to earn a full dismissal. Only an attorney who knows all the facts can give you proper advice but from your question, it appears this will be a likely possibility. Feel free to call local attorneys for a free consult. This should not affect your schooling and transfer but definitely don't make the same mistake twice. Good luck!See question
