I was sentenced on 11/06/16 but see other activity on my case since
The Butte County court clerk adds items to cases, including payment arrangements, filing of probation orders, and "ticklers" to check and make sure you're up to date on fines. The abstract of conviction is just the document that is sent to the Department of Justice and other agencies to formally advise them of the conviction.See question
So, my friend owned a shop which has now just closed as he has run out of money to continue. He is ready to file a bankruptcy and start his life over. The problem is, some of his creditors are former clients that gave him deposits between 2-6k to ...
Individuals cannot "press" criminal charges. Only the District Attorney can file a criminal case.
Yes, it is extortion to threaten someone with criminal charges in order to collect money, even if the person is actually entitled to the money. However, it seems prosecutors rarely file charges in these situations.
What should your friend do? Exercise his right to remain silent. That means he shouldn't talk to ANYONE about this but a lawyer. (That includes posting specific details on a website that anyone can read!) If he is contacted by law enforcement, he should politely tell them that he is exercising his right to remain silent, and he will not answer any questions without a lawyer... then STFU.See question
My court case got dismissed last week. I didn't receive any papers or docket sheet for dismissal of case. How long it will take to get that .
You don't automatically receive documents indicating there was a dismissal. You can visit the clerk's office at the courthouse and request a copy of the minute order.See question
Hello, i need advice on how to represent myself at trial on a life insurance claim. I need all advice i can get. I cannot find an attorney in taking this case so i am moving forward in the trial phase. The other side will have attorney and i wi...
There's no way to give you meaningful advice. You're asking people to condense three years of law school, and years of continuing education and experience, into a 4,000 character short answer on a website.
Even with that education and experience, a lawyer would have to conduct a thorough review of all of the facts in order to know how to proceed.
If you're really going to try to handle this yourself, you should plan on spending many hours at your county law library. It's open to the public and the librarian can direct you to materials that have information on the procedures you will need to follow.See question
My boyfriend and I weren't getting along and he unprovoked: tackled me, choked me, slapped my face and threw sodas on me. It was over quickly and I wasn't injured. He fled the scene. I called the police and they took a report and said its a misdem...
If you want to help him, your first step should be calling his lawyer to offer your help.
In California, you cannot be jailed for refusing to testify in a criminal case where you are the alleged victim of domestic violence.See question
I wrecked while under the influence, nobody was hurt besides me. I didn't get my mail for the court date due to a move from one place to another
There is probably a warrant for your arrest. If you get picked up, you could sit in jail waiting to be transported to the court where the case was filed.
You should hire a lawyer in the county where the case was filed to clean up this mess. Your chances of staying out of jail are greater if you take care of this issue now, instead of waiting for the cops to show up at your door.See question
my husband is already doing time in southwest detention center for one case but has a hold and has to make time in san Diego for his probation violation how long can they sentenced him for that.
There is no way of knowing how much time he might serve without knowing the offense that got him placed on probation in the first place.
If he was convicted of a felony that carries three years in prison, the court could impose that sentence, minus credit for any time he has served. If it was a misdemeanor, he's looking at a year in county jail.
Instead of revoking probation and sentencing him, the judge might put him back on probation with additional jail time that could range from "time served" to a full year.See question
My husband is in state prison for a DUI and evasion charges due to his passed crimes he was given 10 yrs 8 mos due to all the enhancements. None of his pass charges are violent crimes.
Prop 57 technically went into effect the day after the election. However, the necessary regulations to put it into effect have not yet been released.
At this point, there is nothing you can do to speed up the process. CDCR will be conducting parole hearings as soon as they get the regulations in place.
Remember, Prop 57 does not guarantee early release. It only makes certain inmates eligible for parole consideration after they have served the entire term for their principal offense. (In some cases, they may actually get out sooner under existing time credit calculations than if Prop 57 applied.)See question
My husband is sentencing life for car jacking and I would like to know how prop 57 benefits him?
Prop 57 won't help him if he was convicted of a third strike for carjacking.
Carjacking is a violent offense under the Three Strikes law and Prop 57 specifically does not apply to people serving a term for a violent offense.See question
The police officer told me that she had on record that I had purchased a fake ID, and she said wanted to get it cleared up and ask a few questions.
How do you respond? You DON'T.
Don't return the call. If the cop actually makes contact with you, say you are exercising your right to remain silent and will not answer any questions without a lawyer to advise you.See question
