My friend went to prison was brutally torched by the guards as this occurred he spit on one of them now 6 years later charges for assult are being brought against him let alone he has tried to file a lawsuit for not just the torture but also the r...
The general statute of limitations for felonies requires the complaint be filed within 3 years. That time can be tolled for an additional 3 years if the defendant is out of state. Even if filed timely, it must be served promptly as well, see State v. Geneva Barnes. Your friend's public defender can help with these questions -- he won't get assigned a lawyer until after arraignment, usually. I'm sorry he's dealing with all this, and I'm glad he has a friend who cares about him as you clearly do!See question
Charges, i.d. theft, forgery , I'm only getting one offer for 24 months without any other offers. my attorney said the D.A. not willing to have settlement conference? Is it up to the d.a ?
Nobody can force the DA to negotiate. That said, it doesn't look great for a DA on the morning of trial if he's made no movement on his original offer of settlement. In some counties, a defense lawyer can set a JSC (Judicial Settlement Conference), whether the DA wants one or not. Give your lawyer a call or email (lawyers respond much more quickly to email) with these questions! They know your case much better than any of us lawyers responding to your blurb on the internet.See question
On probation overseen by judge #1. Got a traffic stop driving suspended. Went to jail had court with judge #2. Fined and moving on. Now judge #1 wants to see me. Can I get in trouble twice?
Get a lawyer, yesterday, and be sure to not drive while suspended any more. Give a call to your old lawyer on the DWS too -- she'll know about the personality of the judge who originally sentenced you, and can give you an idea of how much jail and other sanctions you're facing.See question
I have a warrant for failing to appear in court from 2009 that has put a hold on me getting my license back. The warrant is in Ohio, and currently I live on the west coast. Is there a way to have the hold removed without having to fly across the c...
I agree with Mr. Gregory -- hire an Ohio attorney to get help clearing up the warrant! An Ohio attorney can tell you whether it can be handled without your appearance, or whether you'll have to go back to face the music. In any event, we're license to practice law in Oregon, you'll want someone licensed to practice law in Ohio.See question
I was convicted of a dui ~ 3 years ago, had my license suspended, got an iil on my car for the required period and had it approved to be removed over a year ago by fulfilling the DMV/court requirement. I am still on probation for another 2 yea...
In Oregon it's up to your probation officer whether you'll be permitted to leave the your state of probation, and you need to get her permission before you cross a state line. For Washington probation, those are matters of Washington law, and you should contact your old Washington lawyer (or a new one) on those issues. For Oregon law, I can say: IF your PO approves your move, and IF you become an Oregon resident, you should apply for an Oregon license within 30 days of establishing residency. The former part of your question, about Washington law, should be referred to a Washington lawyerSee question
This is pertaining to a mutual fight between my fiance and I that a friend called in to report.
The person to speak with is an attorney, not the police.See question

The detective is NOT on your side. You're facing serious, life-changing felony charges. Get an outstanding criminal defense attorney, yesterday.See question
Back in January of this year my ex boyfriend and my current got in to a fight and the cops come out and they told us that if anybody got arrested for the fight that they both would be arrested. But only one is facing the charger right now in the l...
It is possible because it is the DA's Office, not the police, who ultimately how to charge and resolve criminal cases. They often make decisions based on who appears to be the more culpable party, although mistakes can be made and better resolutions can happen for some fight participants than others. You should ask this question of your boyfriend's lawyer, and/or their legal assistant. They should be able to provide a cogent explanation. Consider emailing those folks, as busy lawyers are better at responding to email than phone calls, sometimes (and they can answer email while they're waiting in court).See question
I got into a serious car accident and convicted of Dui and a felony assault resulting in prison time back in 2009. In 2012, I was released and all treatment, fines, and restitution was paid. In 2014 I received a hardship license. In 2016, I comple...
Stuck. Even if the law had changed for the worse between, say, the time of conviction and the time a person was ready for reinstatement, Mannelin v. DMV, 176 Or App 9 (2001), says that the more onerous current statute would apply. Mannelin rejected expertly-argued ex post facto, double jeopardy, and bill of attainder arguments. In Oregon, the law at the time of reinstatement is what applies.See question

I think you're asking if a landlord "can" rent to someone who has been charged with a crime that was later dismissed: yes.See question
