I was supposed to start EHM but failed the intake drug test. The person running it said I have to turn myself in and do my time in jail. The judge did not stipulate that I could not drink or consume any products that contain ethanol or thc. So sh...
Remarkably similar question to another posting concerning a person in Kent/EHM who walked away, particularly since that poster described the issue as an DUI/DWI, but I digress.
You are culpable for the additional criminal charge of escape if you had reported to the jail; escape is a separate crime, and will likely destroy any chance of less severe punishment, i.e. EHM.
You need to get an attorney immediately to help you arrange 'turning your self in'.
Single caucasion female no priors exept a few mistermeaners was arrested on Native Land (Tulalip Tribal Land at the Walmart) by Tulalip Native Police officers, transported to and booked by them as well, and then held in Med Tank for three days wi...
3 day 'charge or release law' is only for continuing to keep the suspect in custody.
The short answer to your Q is that the prosecutor can charge you at any time up to the statute of limitations.
You do not specifically mention what exactly you were arrested for, but the general S/L for felonies is 3 years, although some more serious felonies have longer limitations periods.
You are in a very bad position. Get information to talk with a public defender immediately, as you have a strong equitable argument that you have suffered enough already. Good luck.
She told me I can't have a dirty u/a and that she would give me time for my system to get clean. I came back to sign up for the program and I took a urinalysis. Shortly afterwards I went back into the lobby. I could hear two officers talking and ...
Your walking away is, unfortunately, a criminal escape, if you had reported in to the jail.
The interpretation of your Rx results can be helped greatly by getting a lawyer on board to advocate against the 'dilution' issue. Act quickly, before you face an additional criminal charge; there is some bad case law on what constitutes escape.
There is exactly 4 years and 4 months of an age gap between us. Her dad took her phone and found txt messenges of us talking about how we had sex and plans to do it again. He wants to press charges
If there is sexualized chat between you & the 16 year old, you could be charged with 'Communicating with a Minor For Immoral Purposes', since she is less than 18 years old.
Your question, however, is "do I have to worry"-you don't HAVE TO, but if I was in your position, I would be worrying.
The dad can't press charges, that will be up to local law enforcement and the local prosecutor's office.
It is in your best interest to stop your 'chat' with this person about your activities. Those texts are evidence of CMIP; don't compound your problem by continuing your texts.
This is crazy and I'm a little embarrassed. I am a 57 year old man and my girlfriend is 32. A 17 year old girl/woman she works with has been trying to come home with her and have sex with us for a month or so. It scares the hell out of me actually...
Following up on Mr. Witt's fine analysis, your instincts are appropriate. The 17 could later say, if/when things go sideways/sour, that her supervisor(your 32 year old girlfriend)pressured her into the sexual relationship. It's a stretch, but that could make you an accomplice to the crime of "Sexual Misconduct With A Minor", if you 'aided& abetted' the activity with a 17 year old and her supervisor.
Geez, if you are so uncomfortable about doing this, follow your instincts and don't do it.
I have a video I took of Facebook. This was a live feed an adult man posted. In this video he clearly breaks the law. 9.68A.090 minors are 15 and 12 man is 35. What is procedure and protocol for sheriffs department to do something and what if the...
The video should be turned over to the Spokane police, who will investigate the communication involved with the Facebook posting. As prior answers alluded, the age of the persons is important, but the communication with the minors has to be 'immoral', which is usually blunt sexualized talk. I have never seen a CMIP case wherein the talking involved was NOT very graphic in nature. Innuendo is probably not going to be enough, but you will never know unless you turn over the video. Of course, be prepared to tell the police how you personally came across the video yourself.See question
A friend (27yrs old male whom lives in montana) sent and received pictures of a 17 year old girl(whom lives in Georgia) Now her parents want to press charges.
I thought the same thing as Mr. Ness: this may be a scam.
The "friend" is culpable for possession and DISTRIBUTION of child pornography, but he needs to seek MT legal counsel to see if this real deal; btw, he should stop sending and receiving snaps of 17 year olds.
Non violent criminal history. Mainly possession etc except DV? There are 2 counts unlawful possession of firearms in 2nd degree as well as poss of cocaine. Any chance of house arrest? Thank you in advance.
Age can be a 'non-statutory mitigating factor'.
Under the current WA. sentencing guidelines, as presently charged, he is 'looking at' 4-12 months of county jail time, when computing his 'presumptive sentence range'. This computation is assuming the offenses in 2008 don't qualify. This is a case wherein the defense lawyer will likely have to use the 'age card' when negotiating the case. Obviously, the guy shouldn't be 'packing a piece', and his lawyer will clearly communicate that he will forfeit the weapons and possess none in the future. The sentence computation would be different if this was a federal charge, which is what you have described it to be.
I was pulled over right in front of my house last week, and was given a "criminal traffic infraction" for rcw 46.20.342(1)(c). I was unaware of my suspension. Turns out my automatic payment on a ticket I had a payment plan on defaulted. I was n...
Get a lawyer to help you. If you can't afford a lawyer and meet certain financial qualifications, the court will appoint you a public defender. Since you have gotten your driving privilege reinstated, it is likely you will get a first time offender's plea bargain to a non-criminal traffic infraction. Plead not guilty at arraignment, and ask for a public defender appointment Good luck.See question
So much time has passed, I had no idea until recently. I work hard to support my family and it's not really in my budget for multiple trips back & forth. Is there any way I can transfer this to Spokane and deal with it here?
In addition to Mr. Nahajski's fine answer, a local attorney in Vancouver could possibly negotiate the case with the prosecutor, so that you only have to come over once for court. The attorney could try to resolve the case, so that the warrant is quashed, and you dispose of the case by some sort of plea bargain at one hearing. There are several fine criminal defense lawyers in Vancouver.See question
