I have a fractured tail bone, not sure if it happened when my BF pushed me to the floor or if when I fell in the bathtub but the hospital called the police for DV on him. They went to arrest him but he wasn't there and they still have not picked h...
The best way is to contact the DAs office. As a general rule the District Attorney has up to 3 years to file a charge for a violation of Penal Code 273.5 and 1 year for a violation of penal code 243(e). Those are the two primary DV statutes that we have in California. Check with the DAs office regularly or contact the investigating officer again.See question
I was given a deferral of sentence for a petty theft misdemeanor. I was fired and my job said they would give me my job back if I could get this off my record. I went back to court and got my case dismissed. My job said that even though it is dism...
Under the deferral program this means that your case was dismissed and that your plea of guilty or no-contest at the start of the case is withdrawn and the case is dismissed, meaning you have no criminal conviction. That is the entire purpose of this program. This is why it exists to aid people live yourself from having a criminal history.See question
My friend was sentenced to 3yrs for auto theft with prison priors. His release date is in January 2017, but he has been told that he will be released in November due to AB109.
There is absolutely nothing currently in the Penal Code that reduces the time an inmate will serve in county jail or a state prison. The LASD or CDCR may have internal policies that result in early release, however, this is not pursuant to the penal code. Accordingly, I would not except an early release, I would only hope that it occurs.See question
I have asked for motion for illegal search and seizure and found out from pd that apparently the district attorney has an audio tape of arrest I'm assuming thus postponing again the hearing.
I agree with my colleagues, the police do not need your permission to record any interaction with you. The DA is required to supply your attorney with any evidence regarding your case including but not limited to the recording. If there is a Miranda issue your public defender will be able to address that as they see fit.See question
I got a felony for intent to sell in California back in 2008. I pled guilty to the change and got a felony. I went through the new leaf program and they got my case dismissed In 2015. Do I still need to put felony on my job application? Is there ...
The answer to this questions depends upon the type of job your are applying for. For most non-state jobs you do not have to answer yes if the question is have you ever been convicted of a felony, as long as it has been properly expunged. However if you are applying to a state job, such as police officer, teacher or licensing (attorney with California Bar), you would still have to answer yes you have been convicted of a felony. I agree with my colleague, you should contact your public defender to make sure your case was properly expunged, and also pull your record.See question
Recently I received a letter in the mail stating that I have a warrant for my arrest in a county I haven't lived in for about 5 years. I contacted the public defender to get some more information about it and they tell me I am being charged with m...
I agree with my colleagues. You should contact an attorney in that county to go and recall the warrant for you. The attorney may be able to recall the warrant without you being physically present. Once the warrant is recalled you should not have any issues with your background check, unless you get convicted of the charges.See question
I am renting a room in a house and I am not on probation but The owner of the house is on probation and has a warrant.
I agree with my colleagues. You are in a difficult position because the police have the legal right to search the person or residence of a probationer to make sure his in compliance with his probation terms. If you are not present it would be very difficult to stop them from searching your room, and even if you were present it would still be difficult. I also suggest you move and inquire whether your next landowner is on probation before you decide to move in.See question
June 2015 my wife got red light camera ticket and the car she was driving is registered to me. I sent in a TBD and the ticket was dismissed, Yesterday i received the same ticket from last year, this time they identified her with name, address etc.
It may not be easy to get it dismissed again. If she is in fact the person pictured in the driver's seat and the ticket came in the mail in her name, then it will be very hard to get it dismissed. However there is no harm in trying.See question
I got a fix-it ticket (for registration and tinted windows). I have proof of correction. The due date on the ticket is today (after the 60 day extension). I just found out that I can mail in my proof and payment for dismissal ($50). Can I mail ...
I agree with my colleagues, you should take it in. Most courts in LA county have officers that can quickly check off a fix it ticket. Don't take the chance of getting a failure to appear.See question
