Charge: disorderly conduct: disruption of a business. My girl left with the kids the night before and would not answer the phone that night or the morning after. I went to the daycare that she co-owns with her sister, and that my son attends, the morning after. The door was locked and no one came when I knocked, so I left and called. Her aunt answered and said that her or my son was not there, so I said that I will try back later. I was then stopped as I was leaving the gas station. The officer said that they received a call from the daycare stating that I had a gun. I didn't have a gun, but they arrested me anyway and It took 4-5 hours for them to even find something to charge me with. They admitted to the officer that they overreacted and do not want to persue charges, but he insists on going forward. I don't plan on pleaing to something that I am not guilty of, and just wanted to know if you think they ACTUALLY have a case?
Yes you can and know way to know if the case will have the evidence required for you to be convicted.
best to ask your Criminal Defense Attorney after reviewing all the evidence and police report.
Providing general answers are meant to help the poster to understand some complex legal concepts and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship.
To answer that question, you'll need to review the police report and evidence with your attorney. If you don't have an attorney yet (because you haven't been appointed one yet), consider consulting with a private attorney who practices criminal law and offers free initial consultations. Keep in mind that if you have been indicted it means a jury called a "grand jury" already decided that it is more likely than not that you committed the alleged crimes. This is a lower standard than the "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard applied at your trial.
Hi, a lot will depend on what is in the police report, but yes the state can move forward with the charges. While they may have issues at trial to overcome, without seeing the report anything else is speculation on how good of a case either side has.
