I need an attorney opinion, because I don't know what to do. Thank you
Houston, TX |
My grandson is in the county jail for two counts of robbery. He was catching a ride home with someone he knew . He had no idea that the persons committed robbery. We have witnesses that will testify for him.
You need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney that practices in state court where the charges are pending. Robbery is a serious felony charge. He needs counsel to represent him, review the facts and witnesses, explore all defenses, etc. He has a defense that the attorney will use in the defense.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
He needs an experienced attorney. This is not something that will be handled quickly or easily. Because the cases are felonies, once they are filed they have to go through the Grand Jury for indictment before they can receive a setting with the court. This process takes a few months. An attorney can sometimes prevent the indictment altogether by preparing a presentation for the Grand Jury. When this is successful, it is the end of the case.
There are several experienced Houston-area attorneys on Avvo. It's a good place to start.

Your grandson is in a tough place. Do not know who he ended up with the charges, although if the car was stopped while on the way from the offenses and he was in it, that would make sense. He definitely needs a lawyer who can fight for him, and listen to the reality of the evidence and review the report and claims with him.
