I had a blade on me that i recently bought a week ago at the mall brand new, never used or open, the officer took the blade and told me it was illegal to have one, but i told i didnt know it was illegal cus i never checked it or flipped it open, a...
The fact that you did know it was illegal to have a switchblade on you or you never used it or flipped it open will not cause you to have the Misdemeanor Dismissed.
However, there may be issues as to the lack of probable cause to have stop you as well as an illegal search and seizure by the officer to have an experienced criminal defense attorney suppress the evidence against you and have the District Attorne' Office dismiss the Misdemeanor Criminal complaint.
The best course of action would be to consult with an attorney.

Lost my job 2 months into paying my dui fines. I have saved money to now and really want to take care of this before it becomes even worse.
The failure to timely pay your fines will subject you to a warrant for your arrest and is the basis for a probation violation. A Probation Violation could expose you to jail time. Also, a pending arrest warrant could result you being placed in Jail, during a traffic ticket stop.
The best course of action is to immediately speak with an experienced DUI attorney,have the attorney appeared in court without any further delay, have warrant recalled, and pay the fine at the earliest possible moment or make arrangements with court collections dept. In previous, cases, I have had the client admit the Probation Violation, warrant recalled, & pay fine, no jail time.

I'm 14 and bought weed from a friend at school while school was in session, I got caught and cited for it, the court date hasn't arrived yet. It was about a gram, nothing significant. The ticket says it is a misdemeanor. My question is what will t...
Two further points that you should be aware about your case.
The First is that your citation will most probably be filed with the Orange County Juvenile Court . It is highly recommended that you and your parents consult and hire an experienced Juvenile defense attorney who regularly practices in the OC Juvenile Court and who has handled cases similar to yours.. An experienced juvenile defense attorney should be able to get your case dismissed upon you completing a drug class(es).
The Second Point is that if you case can be dismissed in the future your case will not be reported to the DMV and you will be stopped from applying for your provisional license.
Fines should be about $500.. Good Luck with your case.
Call if you would like more information.

I was given a notice to appear in court for speeding.Supposedly going 80 on a 65 mile zone, but I believe that is wrong. For one, I was located behind a heavy freight truck which usually go below the speed limit, and when the cop pulled me over he...
Attorney Roberts post is an excellent summary of possibilities of the outcome of your case.
I would also recommend that youhire an Orange County Traffic Attorney who regulary appears in the court where your ticket is filled. Your attorney will want to invetsigate the method the officer used to determine your speed and build your defense at trial around his /her findings.

They demanded for $325 to the Law Offices of Michael Ira Asen. They want me to pay within 21 days for verification of the responsible party. do i have to pay it? what if i don't pay it within 21 days? my court date is after it reaches 21 days. i d...
The demand for $325 is for civil damages allowed under California Law for the store to be reimbursed for their internal costs of maintaining security equipment and personnel. This demand has no negative consequences to your criminal case. As such, most attorneys, will advise not to pay it. It is most probable that the Attorney Asen will NOT file suit in California for $325, as his offices is in the New York. Further, he would be only able to get at the most a civil judgment. At this point, absent a civil judgment, there is no obligation to pay the $325. Again, non payment will not effect your criminal case.
Most important is your criminal case. You need to hire an experienced Petty Theft Attorney.

I have handled a number of Felony Probation Violation Matters as a result of new DUI Case, especially in the Santa Ana Court where your case may be filed, where the Probation Department has asked/demanded for 180 days, but I had arranged for 45 days of custody, including time served while awaitng for the Probation Violation matter to be resolved. In the past, the 45 days had been served prior to the final court hearing to resolve the Probation Violation. Hence, by the time the matter was concluded by the court, no additional jail time was ordered by the judge.
If you cannot hire a criminal defense attorney, then request at your Arraignment Hearing at Public Defender.

my girl was blaimed for petty theft in a shopping mall becuase the motion sensor went off when she was looking a watch worth $25, the officer gave her a court date and to pay a fine........ this is her first offence
Typically, the District Attorney will file a Misdemanor Criminal Complaint for Petty Theft.
Although a fine for this type of Misdemanor can range from $500 to $1,000, an experienced attorney should be able to have the DA offer a diversion program called Deferred Entry of Judgment where one would have to give a DNA sample, take a class, and pay about $200 fee for the classs. Once the class is completed and no new charges are filed for 90 days, then the DA will request a Dismissal of the criminal complaint.
It would be quite beneficial to meet with an attorney to discuss all of the facts and review any and all documents to determine if there is a valid defense in this matter to establish a dismissal without having to go through the Deferred Entry of Judgment Program.

As you have 2 cases at the same time, DMV License Suspension and Court DUI, you need to hire an attorney for both, It is also very important that you hire an experienced DUI Attorney who regularly appears in the court where you matter is filed. This will affect the outcome of your matter.
An experienced attorney may also assist in attempting to have the court issue a Critical Need License to allow to drive to from school, work, and alcohol treatment classes. The attorney can also attempt to reduce your probation terms as well since your BAC was .05 and the legal limit is .01 for drivers under 21.
You need to immediately consult with an experienced attorney and have the attorney or yourself request the DMV License Suspension within 10 days of your arrest. Otherwise, your license will be suspended for one year.
I appear very regularly, almost every week in the Fullerton Court and all of the major Orange County Courts on a daily basis.

Driving without a license
As with other attorneys who responded to your post, I would agreed that the judge will find out about your violation of Informal Probation.
I suspect that you previously received the customary 3 years of Informal Probation for a Misdemeanor Driving Without License and a fine for about $500. If the new charge is for a new MIsdemeanor or Felony, then the Judge could sentence you jail time for the probation violation.
However,if the new charge is an infraction or just a failure to pay the fine, then there is good chance your attorney could arrange for the court to not violate your probation.
Further, if you have obtained a license or can get a license make sure to let your attorney know of this fact and present the license at your new court hearing.

The officer wrote me a ticket for 12505(c) driving in CA without CA license and wrote it was fixable. When I went to the court to pay they told me if was not fixable and the officer made a mistake. Is this a valid reason for dismissal?
VC 12500 is a lesser charge that pertains to driving without a valid license. Most often, I see the officer will write the ticket as a Misdemanor. However, most often the courts in Orange County will reduce the charge to an Infraction with a fine upon presentation of a Valid License.
The violation 12505(c) pertains to residency and the requirement of obtaining a license within 10 days of establishing residency.. Even so, I do not believe the mere fact that the officer stated it is fixable which it is not will be grounds for dismissal.
