My husband is in the country jail system. He has four months left on his terms. I'm aware that the prop 57 has gone into effect. I'm wondering which jails are implamenting prop 57. My husband is in for sex consual sex crimes, but at low secruity a...
I agree with Attorney Hill. In order to get early release under Prop 57, the inmate’s behavior must be reviewed and considered by Board of Parole Hearings (BPH). If your husband is serving his sentence in county jail rather than state prison, there is no parole.
Penal Code 667.5(c) lists the offenses that are deemed violent and, therefore, excludable for Prop 57 consideration, should you wish to inquire.See question
If you are sentenced to prison, say for example 5 years, and serve the full term of the sentence, are you still on parole when you are released? Or does parole only apply when you are released early for good behavior, etc.? My friend is currentl...
Is he serving his sentence in federal prison or a state prison? Also, why do you believe he will have to serve 100% of his sentence?See question

His only chance of avoiding prison is to go to trial and be found not guilty on all charges, unless there are some specific grounds for getting a dismissal across the board (unlikely in this type of case - but his criminal attorney should know if any such grounds exist). The fact that he has a prior 288 conviction will severely hurt his defense at trial. But without knowing the details of the case, it is very difficult to assess whether he has a decent chance to win at trial or if he can get a better deal. If he accepts a plea bargain, a determinate sentence would be ideal (For example, 30 years is better than 30-to-life). In any event, he really needs to have an experienced criminal attorney representing him. The Public Defender is better than In Pro Per for this kind of case. The costs of representation by private counsel will be high, but an alternative solution may be to hire a criminal attorney to review his case to assess whether the plea offer is reasonable. I would begin by searching for an experienced criminal lawyer who practices in his jurisdiction/court.

Hospital press charges even with the mothers consent
Your girlfriend's mom cannot prevent charges from being filed if the police are notified and the DA chooses to file statutory rape charges (consent is not a defense). However, your girlfriend and her mom do have some power, i.e., they may have an influence on the DA that could cause the DA to file less serious charges (to avoid mandatory sex offender registration), and to reduce other sentencing consequences. If police are notified, know that neither you, nor your girlfriend, nor your mom, have to speak with them. In fact, you should not speak with anyone in law enforcement unless you have an attorney present. Be very careful of what you say to anyone, including on this forum as this is not a confidential communication.See question
1 years ago I got a dui & I finish all the dui classes & finish my 10 A/A meeting just don't pay the fine , now I got the dui warrant
You will need to appear in court, before the Judge, to have the warrant recalled. Failure to pay the fine on time is technically a violation of probation, but if this is your first offense, and first probation violation, most Judges will recall the warrant, and give you additional time to pay the fine. Depending on your particular circumstances and court, you could face additional punishment. As such, you should consult with an attorney for more specific advice and to help you in court.See question

You cannot prevent a prosecutor from filing charges if they want to prosecute you, but sometimes, a lawyer can assist you and the prosecutor BEFORE charges are filed to prevent charges from being filed. Each case is unique and whether a lawyer can prevent charges from being filed depends on the individual case and the quality of that lawyer.
It is crucial to know that anything you say, whether orally, in writing (in your own diary, in a text, or on a public website such as AVVO.com, etc) it can be used against you and/or your boyfriend to pursue criminal charges and a conviction.
Take care.See question

Consult with an immigration attorney before pleading to anything. While criminal attorneys are supposed to be knowledgeable about immigration consequences, the real specialists are immigration attorneys and they are in the best position to advise you. Some prosecutors are willing to allow pleas to different charges that could help you if there are immigration consequences. A letter from an immigration attorney about those consequences could make a huge difference in the outcome of your criminal case.See question
Ex girlfriend is harassing me and threatening to call my job and get me fired and cause a scene at my work. Also she says she took naked pictures of me while sleeping and is going to post them on the Internet... what can I do??? Can I get a restra...
I recommend hiring an attorney to assist you with filing the restraining order. The sooner you do this, the better chance you have at getting it granted. As for the naked pictures, unless you can prove she did this, as opposed to just threaten that she did this, you do not have a case other than for the harassment - which is primarily a civil matter.See question
