I put my hands in a trash receptacle to retrieve a discarded, damaged, non-working high-capacity gun magazine at a local gun range. For that, I am being charged with "receiving a high-capacity magazine" under PC 32310(a). I see the guilt in someo...
First, please don't publicly tell us what you did. Rather, ask a generic question on this public forum that cannot be used against you in court.
Next, I see two problems: 1. is the Los Angeles City Ordinance making possession of high cap mags illegal and 2. is the state law.
While your actions may seem innocuous at first glance, there may be some actual problems which could come from such conduct. I would encourage you to contact a local lawyer who is well versed in firearms law.See question

Information about the criminal history of any victim/witness will be disclosed as the case plays out. Medical records can be obtained by order of the court. A defense may be presented both at the preliminary examination and more commonly at a trial, should the case go this far. Lancaster has long been a difficult jurisdiction in our business, so I join in everyone's sentiment to get the best lawyer you can to handle this very serious case.See question

There is a bit more to consider before deciding whether or not to take a case to trial. Talk to a lawyer about the facts of the case. Please do it privately.See question
and hit a car. He is looking for a driving job and a potential employer said you have 1 1/2 points. Isn't this too long to matter?
That doesn't sound right to me. He should pull his DMV record as those points should have come off the report years ago. Maybe the employer is using some type of unofficial record.See question
He was allowed to catch his flight after being cuffed, search, the whole nine. But he received in the mail to appear on or before a certain date at the criminal clerks office. Since this is the clerks office, does this mean its a big fine he ha...
I expect he will be referred to court from the clerks office. He may wish to contact the District or City Attorney prior to the date to check on the status of the case. Or he can ask a lawyer to do this for him.See question
My brother was arrested for felon in possession of a concealed firearm 4 days ago, it was in front of his feet in a vehicle. He hasn't been in trouble for the past 4 years, however he has 1 felony conviction in 2009 186.2, grifitti. My question is...
Your brother might want to speak with a lawyer. From what you describe it sounds like his prior conviction is a felony and a strike. And, although felon with a firearm is a wobbler, this sounds like it will be a second strike offense.See question
What can I do to better my chances of a no plea diversion as an immigrant? If I plead guilty or no contest I may get deported. I have no criminal history in either country. This is a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
A more likely outcome to this situation would be a reduction of the offense to a non-domestic violence related charge. I am often able to reduce domestic violence charges to disturbing the peace and sometimes we can even get them dismissed all together. Call a competent local lawyer today.See question

A lawyer can often appear without you in the case of a misdemeanor. I make the vast majority of my misdemeanor appearances without my clients being present in court. In many cases I can make all court appearances without the client ever appearing in court.See question
