We caught a felony case and now he lives in Chicago and I live in California we are both on probation for 3 years
Sounds like you should wait tipp you are off probation since you would need permission from your P.O. and the Judge both of whom told him to stay away from you, to go to Chicago. Or he will need permission to come here, so it won't be a secret!See question
I called to prebook a few days before serving jail sentence. The officer stated no need to prebook to verify with probation officer if house arrest is option. I'm suppose to serve jail time in Orange County and my probation is in Los Angeles which...
Ask the attorney who handled your case! We don't have all the facts, but they do! I have never heard of prebooking or having to ask probation if house arrest is ok.
Usually, clients surrender and then are given the option from the sheriff to do house arrest. Or, did your lawyer get approval from the sentencing judge that you could do house arrest.....
Of course, since you are dealing with 2 counties, your probation officer can violate you based upon your conviction in OC and recommend jail or prison time!
this is why you need to talk to your lawyer!
I am on Probation and Recently got a new case for a Felony charge . I have no had my hearing ! I have not seen my Probation officer either I am out On Bail . What could happen ? Would I be able to proof myself to my Probation and not go to Jail? C...
Slow down with house arrest etc. There are 2 issues here. First, the new case; can they prove it? Is it the same class of crime that you are on probation for? You need to focus on getting the new case dismissed. If that happens, you may not be found to be in violation of your probation.
Second is the probation issue. Is is in the same county, same courthouse? Were you complying with all conditions of your probation and how long have you been on probation? If you did everything but for Obey All Laws, then you have to beat the new case. However, if you have internal violations such as not going to counseling, not reporting to PO etc, you have bigger problems.
Forget house arrest, committing a Felony while on Felony Probation usually results in Prison! Of course, depending upon the exact charge, you may be eligible for AB 109 and do your time in county jail instead of prison.
You need an attorney asap. If you can't afford one, they will appoint the Public Defender.
I'm being charged with 182(A)(1) and 487(A). No overt acts are listed in my case file.
The Overt acts should be plead in the Complaint. If you have already been arraigned, you have an attorney and they can read it to you or make a copy with certain redactions. What did you look at?See question
I am an international student at UCLA. In October of 2015, I got pulled over by a cop. Since I didn't have my CA license at the time, I gave him my foreign license. The charge was for 21801(a) CVC - unsafe, and warning for left turn and speed, and...
Listen to Mr. Roberts; he has a lot of experience with tickets and the gray areas!See question
I have a restraining order against my girlfriend's ex-husband. He is now suing me in small claims court regarding the same altercation that resulted in me seeking the restraining order against him. It seems to me that his suit should be a viola...
Using the legal system is not a violation of a restraining order; this is how they like to see things handled, in court not in the street!
Bring the restraining order that was granted to the Small Claims court and you should win!
So I stupidly stole 3 items of makeup at target today (should have never and won't ever do it again).I thought I wasn't gonna get caught until a guy in casual clothing stopped me outside and asked about the items and kindly asked me to come with h...
This is not a fine, but a civil demand to recover the costs of security involved in your detention. Just ignore it and stay out of all Target stores or you could get arrested for trespassing.See question
Hello. I'm wondering how long after the attack does a woman have to file spousal rape charges against her husband in CA? Also, does that only include limits on actually filing a civil suit? Or if you tell a therapist, doctor, or government offic...
As my colleagues have stated, as of this year, there is no SOL for many rape charges. This SOL applies to criminal charges being filed. As far as civil suit, it is probably 2 years, but i will reclassify to Personal Injury to get a better answer on the civil side.
Spousal rape charges are often hard to prove without a confession from you. DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE!!
I received a Misdeamenor last week and I have court until September. I plan to travel to Hawaii in 3 weeks. Should I have an issue?
If you don't show up you will have an issue called a bench warrant! However, since it is a misdemeanor, you can hire a lawyer to deal with it pursuant to Penal code 977(a). In fact, that is why many people hire lawyers on misdemeanors so they don't have to go to court themselves.
Sorry, i misread the dates since September is a long way off for an arraignment of an arrest in June. You should have a court date in about 2 weeks if you bailed out. What was the arrest charge?
To answer your question, you can travel to Hawaii as it is part of the US! If you bailed out, you may need permission from your bail bondsman, but as long as you return, they would never know.
The only caveat is that if it is a Domestic Violence case and you were issued a CPO (Criminal Protective Order) you may be questioned to make sure the protected party is not on travelling with you. However, since you are not going through Customs, even that possibility is remote.
You should hire a lawyer now though to try to convince the Prosecutor NOT to file the case. There is a lot of time to do some proactive lawyering before the DA makes up their mind without any input from the defense.
When I was 21, I met a young woman on a dating site which she stated she was 18. We met up and I couldn't penetrate which made me question if she had done it before. She ended up disclosing she was 16. I was shocked and ended up leaving without in...
I am reclassifying under employment law. However, as a potential police officer you should learn why people should talk to a lawyer BEFORE talking to the police!
Anyway. good luck with your career. I represented a young man several years ago who was in the same situation as you. He was caught in a Prostitution sting operation that would have ended his application. We went to trial and the jury was literally out 3 minutes (long enough to pick the foreperson) before returning with a NOT GUILTY verdict. They completed the background investigation and i am proud to say that i saw him in Court yesterday.... as an LAPD officer!! In fact, he has since testified for the prosecutor who tried to convict him!!!
