It just means "change" the Information. An Information can be amended to correct an error, to change a charge or to add additional charges. It is very common.See question
I've been placed on 24 months unsupervised probation for a deferred sentence regarding a tresspass charge. My terms are to complete drug treatment, pay fines, and ten day work crew. My question is if I relapse during treatment (I will be taking UA...
Whoever you do drug treatment with will most likely drug test you. If you are required to take a drug test for your treatment, and you fail it, that agency will send a non-compliance report to the sentencing Court & prosecutor. Then, that prosecutor will file a motion to revoke you deferred sentence and you will be summonsed back into court to answer why you had a dirty UA. So, yes - they will most likely drug test you and that can impact your deferred sentence.See question
I was driving my friend's car in Tacoma Washington and we got pulled over for the headlights being on. In my personal car, they automatically come on, so I had no idea they were off. I was 100% sober, but my friend who I was driving for had smoked...
I would be very surprised if you get charged with DUI. That is based on the fact that he only checked your eyes and nothing else. It would be VERY hard for a prosecutor to prove the elements of a DUI if that is all the Officer did. The prosecutors won't charge DUI. Prosecutors, at least creative ones, can always come up with other things to charge you with, but it won't be DUI. If you end up getting something in the mail from the City of Tacoma or Pierce County, call a good, local defense attorney.See question
what can I expect for a sentence and should I plead guilty? do I need a lawyer or will it make any diffenerence. how soon after I pay the fine off can I get it off my record.
Contact a local attorney, ask him or her about a Compromise of Misdemeanor. That is typically the cheapest way to go, and if successful, the charge will be dismissed. Best of Luck.See question

These are easy questions for any criminal defense office to answer for you. You just need to get on the horn with any local defense attorney office and they will most likely offer to call the Clerks or the Prosecutors Office for you. All these answers (regarding what happened in the '04 case) can be answered in one phone call. You just need to take the proactive step of calling someone.See question
I felt sick and didnt have a babysitter i really hope it's bring serious I'm worried
Contact the local Court Clerk. It is possible that they may not have issued a warrant. Sometimes on these lower level cases the Judge or the Clerks will check your record to see if you have any other address than the one that was originally used to send you a summons. If there are multiple addresses, they may just send a summons out to a different address. Start by calling the Court Clerk. Then, based on what you find, call a local defense attorney. These are typically pretty easy issues to figure out and resolve. Best of luck.See question
My questions deal with someone being charged with a non-violent crime but still one that would have been done out of anger. 1. If the person took anger management classes on their own decision while the case is ongoing (not court ordered) could th...
TYPICALLY it is a good idea, but not always. You can always continue to do the classes, and then see what your attorney thinks. If they think it is a bad idea to share that information, then no one needs to know. If they think it will be persuasive in negotiations, then share the information. It can be used like a bargaining chip. But, as the previous answers clarify - not always. This should be a conversation that you have with your attorney who knows all the facts surrounding the case.See question

First of all, don't state any of the facts surrounding the incident online. There are plenty of great criminal defense attorneys around the Pierce County / Tacoma area who would probably be willing to give you a consultation. Your issues are larger than a one paragraph reply on this corny website. You need to take the initiative and make some appointments with criminal defense attorneys. Best of luck.See question
I spoke to the prosecutor, explained the details of the case, and they agreed to dismiss the charges, but explained they would need to find a way to get the court paid. Of course there is a conflict because if charges are dropped legally the court...
This sounds odd to me. Like the previous answer, I am curious who "they" is. I'm wondering if you are confusing the "Court" with the victim? That is the typical scenario - a defendant pays a "victim" for damage or inconvenience, and the victim agrees to request the charges be dropped. It is statutory and called a Compromise of Misdemeanor. The Court also sometimes takes a fee, typically around $100.
I'm just cant conceive how it could be something else. Typically if the State / Prosecutor is going to dismiss a case, they just dismiss the case. They wouldn't hold payment over your head for Court Costs. However, all situations are different and maybe that is actually the case. If it is, just pay the Court Clerks in case and have the receipt for your payment at your next pretrial hearing. Hopefully the prosecutor took good notes, because there is no guarantee that it will be the same prosecutor the next time, or that he will remember your conversation. Best of luck.
To make things short, I or someone that I know confessed to a crime to police when they were likely one of several suspected suspects. Was never even contacted by the police regarding it, just went in and confessed out of feeling guilty and handed...
Yes, your actions may make it a little more difficult to obtain a decent plea recommendation, but maybe not. You need to go consult with a good local defense attorney. They may be able to smooth it out to a degree. Best of luck.See question
