I'm on 3 year felony probation I left California about a year ago and I wanna go back and take care of my warrant but Im scared of turning my self in cause I don't know how much time I'll get and cause I just had a baby too
First - have you verified there is a warrant for you? I assume there is, but you never know. Yes, by absconding you probably have a warrant and a probation violation petition against you. What will happen depends on the original charge, how you were doing on probation before you left and what you've been doing for the past year.
Contact your lawyer (or a new lawyer) to discuss getting this resolved.See question
Is there still any possibility of OR release if someone is arrested for possession of a controlled substance while being on felony probation? Their probation does not require any drug testing or drug related. They have shown up to all prior court ...
Any new case that triggers a felony probation violation allegation can result in a no bail hold. The judge could set bail as well. Could they OR? Sure. All of those are possible. If the person is eligible for a drug program, that may take care of it as well. Time for a lawyer.See question
I wasn't Michael this afternoon picking up a couple items as I was scanning a few of the items at the price check station a gentleman worked up and asked hey you were in the store the other day how'd you like those items you took from me I was kin...
Your posting is difficult to read without any punctuation or sentence breaks.
If I understood your question, you were at Michael's and somebody accused you of stealing something when it wasn't you on the video?
Was I close in figuring out what the situation was?
If so, is your question whether you can sue hem because they thought you stole, but it turns out you didn't and (I think I read this correctly), they apologized?
There's no lawsuit there. If you feel you were treated unfairly, complain to corporate management. That and vote with your wallet and shop elsewhere.See question
Unauthorized use of identification statue of limitation.
Typically, three years. However certain related crimes (depending on the facts and the crossover) that involve fraud have a four-year statute of limitations or one year from the date of discovery of the offense.See question
I had been arrested five years ago on marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia, thing is, on the way to taking me to jail, they literally pulled over to a AMPM gas station and let me go, no ticket or anything, the officer literally said your fr...
You will have to appear (or send an attorney on your behalf) to the court where the warrant was issued. If this was in California, there may be a valid motion to dismiss based on the delay. If this happened in another state, you'll need to contact an attorney that practices in the state where the warrant was issued.See question
I would like to know how much time I would get in jail for dissuading a witness
When it comes to sentencing, there are very few charges that have an "average" sentence. Every case is unique and what a person actually gets depends on the facts of the case primarily, their prior record (if any), the exact charges they are convicted of and what their attorney can work out for them and/or what the judge imposes after trial, should it go to trial.
In your question, it also depends on the facts. By force? Use of a weapon? For the benefit of a gang?
These all matter. 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.See question
Hit in run for sentence to 3 years informal probation with 12 days of community work. Got a ticket for 25658 (a).
Yes, a new misdemeanor can trigger a probation violation on your hit and run case. If you beat the new case, you can also beat the violation. If both cases are in the same county, they'll know without you reporting it. Before doing anything, speak to an 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.See question
I just want to know if there's a number to call or a website because I would like to go in the morning... thank you
If it is a traffic ticket, you can go to any OC courthouse and see the traffic clerk's window. They can add you to the calendar.
If you were cited for a misdemeanor, you see the criminal clerk to be added to calendar. Or better yet - send an attorney on your behalf. you'll have to go to the courthouse where the case is. You can look online and search for you're for your case at occourts.org or call an Orange County defense attorney to look your case up.See question
My friend was arrested for 11379 a transporting etc a controlled substance and had enhancements.
They have a prior strike, so they are presumptively ineligible for probation. The key word is presumptively. The judge could strike the strike and grant probation in the right circumstances.

Not only do I not have a car but getting a ride 6 hrs from my home to court is very difficult or seem imposible I had two family members die what can I do in my own defence
The court is likely to be unsympathetic to your excuses and reasons for missing court. Their solution is often to guarantee you a ride to court - on the county bus from jail.
Get ahold of your lawyer immediately. talk this over with them. Plan on getting to court tomorrow morning with documentation to support the reasons why you couldn't make it. If you were out on bail, have a reassumption ready from your bail company. If you were out on your own recognizance, be prepared for the possibility you're taken into custody and get a bail bond agent lined up or be ready to go in.See question
