My boyfriend had a warrent for 2 charges of 459 5a and 1 charge of PC 484am. He was picked up and taken to jail. He was not on probation but had missed court for all the charges above. His bail is set at $120,000. Which I think is a bit excessive....
Well, there's more to this story than essentially 2 petty theft-related charges and, worst case, another felony theft-related charge. He may have priors that could include a "strike" offense. This would help explain the high bail amount you list. In any event, it is impossible to answer what is likely to happen without more detailed information. He either needs to consult with a criminal defense attorney, or if he cannot afford one, have his public defender explain the situation to him.See question
My wife assualted me leaving me with stitches to my eye. She was arrested and posted bail. It has been a year now and I haven't heard anything from the DA. I called the office and they had said it was rejected by the DA. Additionally my daughter t...
For whatever reason, the DA has decided that the case cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury. This is somewhat unusual in a domestic violence case, particularly when there are injuries. But there is some "hole" or other reason that the DA feels that the case cannot proceed. You could try to speak to the head of the Domestic Violence Unit of the DA's office, or other person who made the decision to reject the case. You could hire an attorney in your area to assist you in trying to get the answers you seek.See question
Pc187 case. Both defendant and witness in the case are represented by wheel attorney's. Isn't that a conflict of interest?
The "Wheel" here in Fresno is the third level of conflict (Public Defender, then 1st level conflict office, then second level conflict office, then the "Wheel.") It consists of about five individual attorneys who agree under separate contracts to represent appointed cases on a rotating basis. It is not a law firm or law office that employs them together as a unit. A defendant and witness cannot not be represented by the same "Wheel" attorney, but each can be represented by separate "Wheel" attorneys without creating a conflict of interest.See question

she pursued me for a time. i eventually gave in. had a disagreement so she goes to her parents saying i took advantage. she deleted certain texts to make it look different than it was. i know texts can be recovered and will show that she asked me ...
There are a variety of charges that could be filed so your question is impossible to answer at this point. What charges the DA chooses to file depend on the facts, largely those that come from what she says happened, and, of course, what you say happened if you spoke to the police. If you haven't spoken to the police yet do not do so until and unless you have an attorney with you. If the cops want to speak to you about the situation, or request that you come down to the station to answer a few questions, respectfully decline to make any statement, saying that you will not do so without your attorney present...period. So, get a qualified criminal defense attorney soon to help you through this situation.See question
I had a sentence for a PC 166, but it was a conditional sentence. it's stipulated that I do two AA meetings a week for five months and the case would be dismissed. I did exactly what the court said THIS TIME, and the case was dismissed! All I was...
As stated, you can get a certified copy of the order dismissing the case from the court clerk, although you will probably have to pay a fee to get a certified copy. For most purposes, a copy of the minute order you were given from the court should suffice. Since the case was dismissed already you should not need to pursue a motion to dismiss the case under PC 1203.4.See question
My husband just was arrested for supposedly stabbing someone.
It means that the accused personally used a dangerous or deadly weapon during the assault, in this case, a knife. If properly alleged, it operates as an enhansement increasing the possible punishment for the underlying crime. His attorney can explain this to him from the facts and allegations of the complaint.See question
Today we had a hearing in regard to my daughters misdemeanor battery citation back 1/16. My daughter had a fight with a young lady and we were told that young lady had a black eye. We were also told there is a video of the fight. My daughter suffe...
I am not exactly sure what your question is, but the juvenile court system is premised on the notion of rehabilitation rather than punishment. If your daughter needs counselling or other services to deal with these issues the court should make every effort to address these concerns, rather than "punish" her for getting in a fight. That her school record may shed light on her particular needs is not necessarily a bad thing. Your lawyer should know the most advantageous way to address her case in court.See question
Finished my requirements on formal probation judge imposed another 2 years
This sounds like it is related to the other question that you seem to have posted about picking up a new misdemeanor drug charge. As long as your probation has not expired or been terminated, and if there is a violation, the judge can generally extend your probation. Of course, he can put you in custody or prison if you violate instead of extending your probation.See question
Formal probation for sales and possession controled substance caught another case misdemeaner possession
Yes, you are probably going to have to face a violation of probation, which has more serious consequences than the new misdemeanor case. The prosecution sometimes will dismiss a misdemeanor for an admission to a probation violation. You need to have a good lawyer to assist you right away to help minimize the damage.See question
