The itiems she took are less than 25 dollars .please help I am a concerned father
I agree with the other attorney that responded. She will not get jail for a first offense such as this and she
should definitely have legal representation before entering any sort of plea.
I finished work one night. I noticed my coworkers car next to me. I opened the door and sat down. Looked around to see if my coworker left their keys in the car. I then locked up the doors to secure the car and left for the night. I did not steal ...
It is possible that your case is amended to a misdemeanor. Ideally, the case would be dismissed for insufficient
evidence. Even if you case is not dismissed or amended to a misdemeanor, you can keep your record clean with what is known as a deferral pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes Chapter 853. You should discuss further details with an attorney as soon as possible. I am available to discuss your case in further detail or if you cannot afford an attorney, please seek the services of the public defender. Good luck! Thanks, James
When I resisted arrest I went limp but also had my arm chained to another person. I caused no physical harm to the officer. This is also my first time getting arrested, and I have never been charged with a crime. This happened at a peaceful protes...
Jail is highly unlikely for the offense described; however, you should be represented by an attorney to fully protect your interests. There are a number of ways you case can be handled so it is best to have an attorney that will be able to fully explore your options.See question
I was caught in Walmart for shop lifting of items around $76 right out at the exit 4 months back . They took me to the Security room to evaluate the cost of items , I revealed honestly .Now I received Court date by 3rd week of February . This i...
I agree with Mr. Peterson. If you have no priors, you will be likely eligible for a deferral but this could have an immigration consequence. Practically speaking, a theft 4 should not prevent you from being naturalized but could delay the process; however, I agree you should speak to an immigration attorney. Also, you should be represented by an attorney with your pending theft case.See question
I heard that if you win the adlro and lose the criminal, you still have one year revocation of your license but after your suspension you don't have to retake the test and just pay the reinstatement fee , is this true?
Yes, you can lose your DL if you lose either the criminal or civil (ADLRO) case. You can also call the ADLRO if you have specific questions regarding your particular situation. 808-534-6800.See question

I got a Dui in Hawaii which is my first ever. long story short I no longer lived in Hawaii because my husband is military. Do I have to travel back to Hawaii to take care of my court obligations or can I just pay the fees. If I pay the fees will I...
No, you cannot just pay the fees as it is a criminal offense which will require your presence, the presence of counsel, or a waiver form signed by you if you do nor want to return. Also, note that in Hawaii there is an Administrative side if the case that deals with the license revocation. If you do not challenge the license revocation, there will be a license suspension. You should speak to an attorney that works these types of cases as there are time sensitive issues at play.See question
My fathers DUI case was dismissed due to the police officer not being present in court. Not so long ago we are informed that he has a arrest warrant for a DUI. According to his lawyer he is not sure what might have happen. I am not sure if the ...
In the State of Hawaii, a case may be dismissed with or without prejudice. If the court dismisses the case with prejudice, the prosecutor may NOT refile the case. If the case was dismissed without prejudice, the prosecutor MAY refile the case. You would want to determine how your case was dismissed in your jurisdiction and if the prosecutor refiled your case within the proper time period for refiling. You most likely would be better off speaking to an attorney in your state that handles DUIs.See question
