Someone I know is being accused/charged of a violent crime. Detectives came & tried to question me, & asked me for a recorded statement. Long story short I said no, & was told that if I do not contact them by a certain date with the information th...
You have the right to an attorney and we're smart not to answer questions without discussing with your attorney first. The truth of how this works is usually that you will definitely be charged if you give the information the police are looking for. You may not get charged if you keep your mouth shut.
You can hire an attorney right now. If you can't afford one then you will have to wait for their next move. If they come back, say "I am exercising my right to an attorney," then keep quiet. If they want to talk to you they will have to provide you with an attorney first. This may not prevent you from being arrested or charged. It may save you from a conviction. If you are charged the court will appoint you an attorney.
If you remember nothing else that a criminal lawyer tells you, remember one thing. If you are approached by the police you should SAY NOTHING except I demand an attorney.See question
So I have a pending DUI. If convicted it will be my third. I have DUI from 2008, 2013 which I am still currently on community supervision for and a violation from last year for a wreckless endangerment. I just got 60 days home detention for the vi...
It sounds like you have an attorney that is aware of the issues in your case. There is so much that goes into evaluating one's chances at trial. Any guess any of us make would simply be a wild guess, not a whole lot better than flipping a coin. You're attorney is really the only one who can answer your questions.See question

Hit and run is a criminal offense. The police can conduct a stop based on a witness' statement. Your parents need an attorney.See question

This website is very helpful for checking your requirements for reinstatement: https://fortress.wa.gov/dol/dolprod/dsdreinstatements/ .
The suspension does not stop automatically. You will have to go to DOL and pay the fee on or after the reinstatement date. DOL and/or your attorney can tell you if there are other steps you need to complete as well.See question

GET AN ATTORNEY AND STOP TALKING TO ANYONE ELSE ABOUT THE CASE. It will likely take a lot of work and some time, but these things usually find a way of sorting themselves out in the process.See question
I hired an attorney for a DUI charge which should have been easily winnable due to serious evidence mishandling, lack of evidence and documented non-substance-related explanations (the case is still ongoing, with another lawyer). The guy entered m...

Cameras and mics installed in my place by downstairs neighboors. May have recorded drug use, but it was obtained illegally, so is it admissible as evidence?
It might be admissible. The general public is not under the same constraints as the government when it comes to search and seizure. However, using drugs is not illegal. It would be nearly impossible to prove that you were in possession of drugs from a video. Blackmail is illegal. Recording you without permission may be illegal as well. You are probably in a better place to press charges and sue than the person with the video.See question
my son received a elegant driving in the 2nd degree in his school parking lot he was moving parking spaces. I have seen the video, he backed out of the space with no one around him preceded forward when he put the truck in drive to go forward the ...
The attorney you hired would be in the best position to answer your question. Since, I haven't seen any of the evidence (video, police reports, etc...), any opinion I could give you would be a complete guess.See question
I missed court for speeding in a school zone 12 mph over the speed limit and driving while license suspended in the 3rd degree and now I have a bench warrant out for my arrest with a 1,000$ cash only bail
You can turn yourself in any time. Just walk into nearest police station and tell them you have a warrant. It's unlikely you will be brought to court the same day. It seems like there are better options such paying the bail or having your attorney set a motion to quash the warrant.See question
Recently got a speeding ticket and I believe driving while revoked. Again my 3rd DUI was differed in 2011, Does this constitute as a probation violation?
On a DUI, one of the conditions of both a suspended and a deferred prosecution is that you not drive without a valid license. This is not a mandatory revocation of the DP but the judge could revoke. This would trigger a mandatory 30 day sanction on each of the other 2 DUIs if the court still has jurisdiction. The speeding ticket itself shouldn't be a problem, but if the prosecutor, probation or the court finds out you were driving without a license your going to need a lawyer.See question
