I reported my car stolen over 10 years ago because my fiancé at the time took it when we broke up. The car was solely titled in my name and he took it and drove it to another state. He gave the vehicle back and the vehicle is now sold and way gone...
Mr. Silvia is correct. Ultimately, the warrant, like the criminal charge underlying it, is not yours to lift or "drop." Sometimes, the Court will demand the accused be accountable for failing to show up at court, even if the alleged victim no longer wishes to prosecute. Contact the local prosecutor's office and see if they'll bring a motion to dismiss.See question
Hoax charge class 4 felony . Only 13. No record.
You definitely need an attorney licensed to practice in Arizona, preferably with juvenile and felony experience. Typically, juveniles are assigned public defenders right away, but frequently, it is advantageous to obtain private counsel. Avvo can help connect you and/or the 13 year old accused with the right lawyer. Good luck!See question
When I go to the police station I get booked under 11378 HS possession for sales for men I don't understand what's happening I don't have nothing I don't know what's going on I don't know
The other attorneys ads correct-- don't post about this on the internet. It's also important that you refrain from *talking* about your case too, whether you're in jail or not. Do not talk to police, your friends, your cellie, or anyone, except your lawyer. Good luck!See question
I am to be a wtiness to a court martial of an individual. Im worried said individual is going to try to get me in trouble for testifying against him. I was discharged honorably recently, but still maintain 1 year inactive reserve time. Can my disc...
I agree with what the other attorneys have said. I also wonder, if it's not some "dirt" that the witness has on you, how much pull this person being subjected to courts-martial is really going to have to "get you in trouble." If you have *any* concerns you might be incriminate yourself, or that the person has evidence of misconduct and would expose you, I would definitely consult with an attorney before speaking to any law enforcement (NCIS/CID what have you) or to Trial Counsel (the JAG attorneys) or the paralegals in their office.See question
Is it illegal for prison security and staff to be instructed to give a prisoner the cold shoulder and refuse to assist him? For example, not helping him when he needs help
I can't think of any law that violates, unless you are being denied medically necessary treatment or not being fed, or other civil rights violated. From what clients tell me, sending kites is better than verbally complaining. It must be so difficult to accept the nearly complete lack of control over one's circumstances that prison presents. Some clients have told me they find mindfulness meditation helps. You could also try talking to a chaplain or taking advantage of any programs your prison offers.See question
This is the only thing that I have been in trouble for and I am in the process of a differed prosecution. While in oregon, I accidentally discharged a firearm at a campground outside of city limits. The courts would not release the gun as it was p...
My colleagues are correct -- the only other exception I could think of is if it was somehow designated as a domestic violence offense (for instance, you were shooting in the air because you were angry at your spouse). Domestic violence convictions can also result in a loss of your firearm rights.See question
Federal restitution ordered by District Court in Texas (At least 10% of gross income). Currently earning $1250 per month FLU seized my IRA and all of my bank accounts. I have only a $3500 vehicle as total assets
I have never seen State courts garnish wages or make such drastic attempts to collect restitution. They typically send unpaid restitution accounts along to collections, just like unpaid court fees. However, although I practice in federal court, I have not researched that specific issue. Your attorney can conduct in-depth research and give you a definitive answer.See question
is it legal for the prosecuting to stack or more charge to hold one in jail longer?
If there is independent probable cause for each charge, probably so, but it's impossible to say without knowing s little more about the case (how long has the Defendant been in jail and so forth). Right now, the most important thing you can do is get an experienced attorney who will aggressively work to get the Defendant out of jail.See question

Have an experienced attorney help fight the suspension and the underlying ticket. Cleaning up your driving history is do-able and worthwhile.See question

Without knowing the specifics about your case, it's pretty tough to say. Different courts and judges may very. However, for my clients in this situation, I help them come up with a plan to help minimize the risk of them doing time in jail. I suggest you contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer. This is the type of case where a great advocate can really help you out.See question
