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. Good luck!See question

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

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'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
Should I go downtown and make amends?
I agree with my colleagues. Nothing to be stressed about. Once you call and explain, you will simply be given another date.See question
My friend doesn't know the actual person that stole it. It was taken out of Van Nuys and cashed in Pico Rivera. She has priors for fraud and her bail is 50,000 so I'm just wondering why she hasn't went to county jail yet
If she did not know the check was stolen then she did not commit a crime. However a DA may infer she knew based upon her record of committing theft or fraud offenses in the past. But believing she knew and proving it beyond a reasonable doubt are two different things. She should get a good local criminal defense attorney to represent her.See question
I am on my parole and have warrant out for my arrest for failure to appear in court, I had talked to my P.O. that I had a court date for a traffic violation but that I had lost the ticket and did not know when the court date was, I then found out ...
While you may get arrest for this it's unlikely you would get a parole violation for missing and then rescheduling a traffic ticket. If the ticket is for an infraction such as speeding, it's unlikely. If it's a dui or misdemeanor traffic ticket it's more likely.See question

Absolutely you should hire an attorney or request a public defender. No attorney can advise you without knowing all the facts of your case. It is always a bad idea to represent yourself. Even an experienced attorney knows not to represent himself or herself if facing charges. There's an old saying that an attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client.See question
If a person got arrested but the DA didn't file charges/formal complaint with the court. Would such arrest show on DOJ criminal clearance letter? The letter is needed for immigration purposes
Under penal code 849.4 your arrest should be deemed only a detention if no charges were filed. I believe the DOJ will state that the arrest was a detention only in this situation. The arresting agency should give you a document stating your arrest was only a detention. Not sure if this will help you but technically the arrest is a detention only, if no charges were filed.See question
