I am awaiting sentencing for 3 felony charges. They are felony embezzlement, felony grand theft, and felony receiving stolen property. The amount stolen is around $16,000. If I am able to pay $10,000 back immediately is there a chance it can be re...
First, it sounds as though you have already been convicted, since you are awaiting sentencing. If that is the case, and you were convicted of all three felonies, then they will most likely be treated as three charges, unless there is something in the plea bargain that dismisses one or some of the charges.
As for the issue of having a felony reduced to a misdemeanor, this will hinge in part on whether you are sentenced to state prison or county jail. If you go to state prison on this then you will likely not be able to have these felonies reduced to misdemeanors. However, if you are given a probation / county jail sentence, then you may well be illegible to have these charges reduced later down the road.See question
I have a 2nd DUI in 1996 in sacramento CA , and I just got another DUI in february of 2014 in Turlock CA is my resent DUI going to count as my third one.
As I understand your question, you received a DUI in 1996, but you had a DUI conviction prior to that. The standard rule is that DUI's drop off after 10 years. So you can count back 10 years and determine how many of your DUI's fall within that time period. It sounds like the only DUI within the past 10 years is your 2014 DUI, so it should be your first.
That being said, it is really best that you speak with an experienced DUI attorney who can help you properly understand your case. Each case is unique. You should sit down with an attorney and have yours analyzed. All the best, Earl.See question
He also has a prior separate wet and reckless charge for which he failed to complete his DUI classes for. He does not drive any more, and has been staying "under the radar". He is simply trying to ignore everything which I know is a very, very bad...
Your friend most likely has a bench warrant issued for him. This warrant needs to be recalled and the case(s) needs to be placed back on the court calendar in order to be resolved. Your friend can do this on his own and use a public defender, or he can hire a private attorney. One risk of going in to court to handle this on his own is that he may very well be taken in to custody when he appears before the judge. Meanwhile, it is possible (not guaranteed) that a private attorney can appear on his behalf, thereby reducing the possibility that he is taken into custody.See question
