A person was cited for 'Theft in third degree' related to taking and keeping my Iphone which i had forgotten in a building lobby. Now the attorney of the victim requested me to sign 'Compromise of misdemeanor', in return for a small financial comp...
The only thing that you waive is your ability to sue the person civilly in the future. Signing the declaration is in effect a waiver of your right to sue the party for the tort of Theft. If that is not in your plans, there is no concern. These are usually a good resolution, especially for the person who is accused of the crime. Best of luck.See question
It is out of tacoma wa
You have a lot going on. Things will get worse if you don't address this situation. Don't admit to anything on these online sites. You need to speak with your attorney, and if you do not have one you need to find one who can smooth this situation out with the prosecution and the court. Letting time blow through this will not fix it. Best of luck.See question
she had three months left.
Life is not over, but she will probably end up serving the remaining three months in custody rather than on the bracelet. Log she damaged the bracelet, that may be an additional criminal charge (malicious mischief) and there could be a theory for the State to charge her with escape. Have her consult with her attorney. It is not the end of the world, but things will get worse if she ignores the issue. It will catch up to her. Good luck.See question
I was recently pulled over for speeding by an unmarked WSP unmarked cruiser. There were zero markings and didn't carry a WSP license plate. From what I understand of RCW 46.08.065, this car should only be used for investigative or under cover purp...
Section 3 of RCW 46.08.065 allows for an exemption for the Washington State Patrol. Section 1 allows for the Sheriff's Offices and local police departments to to use such vehicles for special undercover or confidential investigative purposes. Lastly, WAC 308-96A-080 allows for State Agencies to obtain undercover and confidential license plates.
I don't think that your theory will work to get the ticket thrown out. I am not, however, saying that you don't have one or multiple other ways to challenge the ticket. If you find a local, experienced attorney who defends traffic tickets, there is a good chance that they will be able to spot an issue. Best of luck.

It will depend on your history. Specifically, do you have other cases where you failed to appear to Court? I assume that you already missed your arraignment since you have the warrant. The courts look at two things. 1. Are you a risk to fail to appear, and 2, are you likely to commit a violent crime. To answer this question with much specificity, one would need to know your history. Either way, based on the charges alone, you should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney in your area. Best of luck.See question
Class B Felony from Wisconsin
Google a criminal defense attorney in the county in Wisconsin where the Felony was resolved. A Washington attorney can't really answer that question for you. Best of luck.See question
I was accused of breaking into a client's locker and stealing some valuable items. but I didn't do it. will that go in my work record.? since I worked there for 13 years and I was an excellent employee.
To add to the last answer - when you meet with a local defense attorney they will most likely tell you to politely NOT answer any questions by the Police. A workplace issue like this will typically involve the police at some stage. DO NOT speak to the police until you have spoken with a defense attorney.See question
getting it off my records
What kind of case is it? How old is it? Do you have any new crimes between that conviction and todays date? If it is a case that there is no statutory bar from vacating, you just need to contact a local defense attorney. They will most likely provide a free consultation.See question
Most felonies are mistakes - but hindsight is 20/20. What is your question - without stating any facts on here that could implicate you in a crime. This is a public forum, so be careful how you ask your question. Anticipating a question......See question
I am curious if I go back to court at all after the 2 years of meetings/outpatient etc. or if i just wait until 2017 when the full 5 year term ends?
In Kitsap County and in most Counties I have practiced in, they will set a date at the end of the two year period to ensure that you have the two year treatment phase complete - and that you have paid all the costs to the Court. If either of these things are not complete, you are not able to begin the final three year period. So for example if it takes you 2.5 years to pay the fines, your 3 year period will start at the 2.5 year mark - extending the DP from 5 years to 5.5 years. Contact the Court Clerk - they will be able to look at a scheduling order and tell you when your next date is. I assume it is between 24 and 30 months from the date of entry of the DP. Best of luck.See question
