Can someone file assault charges on me even though it allegedly happened two weeks ago?
However the incident happened two weeks ago can this even hold up in court with it being so long and no real evidence?
- Yes, this can "hold up in court" and you can potentially be convicted of a felony (aggravated assault, based on the "crushed bones in her face" allegation) that carries lengthy prison time. The alleged victim's statements are evidence. The length of time that has passed prior to a charge being formally filed ("two weeks ago") is relatively short to numerous other cases that I have had experience in defending.

I was charged with misdemeanor possesssion of paraphernalia and misdemeanor possession of marijuana and the court will not let me pay the fine without appearing before the judge...I no longer live in that town and was hoping to resolve this matter...
These charges are more serious than many people give them credit for. As Kevin Stewart noted, your driver's license/driving privileges are subject to suspension if you plead guilty or are otherwise "convicted." Additionally, there are a host of collateral consequences (for example, the stigma of a criminal record and the reduced ability to find meaningful employment, for one) that follow a conviction. The wise move here is to hire a criminal defense lawyer to help you.See question

I concur with Kevin Stewart's analysis. And I will add: Do not even take a wild chance of handling your case by yourself. Consult with a qualified DUI defense attorney, and hire someone to defend you in court, if you have not already done so.See question

Similar to someone who shoplifts an item, is caught, but then takes the item back to the store and hopes for immunity because of the return, the answer is "no, not usually," will you be cleared of an embezzlement charge merely because of you may make the victim "whole." Whether immediately, soon, or in the future. Consult with a criminal defense lawyer about how to proceed to best protect your rights and your future.See question

There are not enough facts to provide any detailed advice. Facts such as the charge (or charges) that are pending. That said, I advise not to post any more facts on a public forum such as this, as your statements could be obtained by law enforcement and then used against you. If you do not already have an attorney, then you should consult with an attorney to defend you against the criminal charge(s).See question
What forms do I need and how much would it cost to filed those forms with the court for a bond appeal to get the court to change my son sentence? How long does it take to have that sentence changed and would he be out of jail until it is changed?
Your son should discuss the matter with his attorney. That said, most bonding companies charge between 10%-15% of the total bond plus services fees.See question
Hi, I had my license suspended over a year ago in Florida. I moved to Mississippi. My 1 year suspension date has passed, can I get license in Mississippi? I called florida nad they claim I have to pay $350 and jump through all sorts of hoops.
You will have to obtain a "Letter of Clearance" from the Florida Dept. of Motor Vehicles. This usually involves payment of all reinstatement fees, fines in court, proof of high risk insurance, etc..
The Mississippi Department of Public Safety will not issue a MS driver's license to you until the issue(s) in FL are cleared via a Letter of Clearance.See question
If my DUI was non adjudicated and dismissed does the arrest get dismissed or so I need to expunge it
You will need to consult with an attorney about the procedure to file a motion for expungement of the arrest record. Some judges are of the position that the arrest and charge record of a DUI that was nonadjudicated may not be expunged, but many have the opposite viewpoint. This issue is fact and jurisdiction specific and you should reach out to an attorney for help. Good luck.See question
