I was convicted of a mistaninor possession and sentenced 3 years probation and didn't comply and I have a petty theft warrant I was not convicted for this charge I missed the court day.
This isn't what you're getting - just the maximum of what you face: up to a year and six months in jail.
Taking it seriously now?
You need a good criminal defense attorney. I'd strongly suggest you find someone who focuses on criminal law and who routinely practices in the court where this case will be heard. you may be eligible for a drug program and/or have legal defenses that can lessen the impact of these cases. You have to deal with them though - you can't continue to ignore hem.See question
1) I receive credible evidence that someone plans to burgle my house. Instead of reporting to the police I decide to lie in wait and intercept this burglar, arming myself for my own protection. 2) I carry a (legal) weapon with me when I have to ...
Self-defense can, in a way, be premeditated in the sense that you are preparing yourself to defend yourself. They could be said of anyone who has a concealed weapon permit, for example - that they were legally carrying a firearm for self-defense.
You issue is that you appear to be looking for an opportunity or excuse to justify (in your mind) using a weapon. Should you find yourself in that unfortunate position, your jury will decide if you were lawfully entitled to self-defense or not.
I'd think through very carefully your mindset and the situations you're intentionally seeking out.See question
I live in California, and I want to know if there are any legal ramifications if a 16 year old and a 17 year old has consensual sex.
There is no such thing as consensual sex involving anyone under 18 in california. The age of consent is 18. Legally speaking, a minor cannot consent to sex.
Even if both are under 18, it is still illegal. Both could face criminal charges, burn tyoically the male does.See question

Yes, a telephonic warrant is valid - IF:
If they followed corrext procedure in getting it.
If they had probable cause
If their entry initially was valid
Search issues and search warrants are always fact specific. Get a lawyer well-versed in search issues.See question
My boyfriend got picked for jury duty he is a felon and the court is over 4 hours away how can he not go?
If he calls the court jury commissioner, he may be able to clear this up over the phone. If not, he will have to report and explain in person, then ask to be removed from the list so this doesn't happen again.See question

Many people, yourself included, think that having "pwer of attorney" carries much more authority than it actually does. Having power of attorney will NOT get you access to the police investigation, will NOT allow you to deal with the DA, etc.- it just is wholly inapplicable here.
There are attorneys that act as victim advocates - they do have some actual authority. I can provide a referral to such an attorney if you'd like.See question
My son was in the same situation and with the same circumstances. He never got an option for community service only a very large fine and a large civil assessment. My son is in a military program and this is affecting his record. I also know my so...
The civil assessment of $300 was added because of either a failure to appear or a failure to pay. There are only a few valid excuses to undo a civil assessment (hospitalization, deployment, incarceration to name a few).
They may allow him to convert the base fine to community service which will wipe out most of the $400, but there are still some court costs they cannot be converted to community service. The civil assessment cannot be converted.
What to do now? He should get back before the judge ASAP and see what can be done. Some judges may cut the civil assessment down even if they don't completely eliminate it.
Whatever the final result is, he needs to fulfill his obligations without any further glitches or they will just add another civil assessment again and he'll be right back where he is (or worse).
Get before the judge ASAP.See question
