I found an email between my lawyer and prosecutor. Don't know why he sent them to me but the prosecutor says my speedy date is set to run out before my trial date. Him and my lawyer both ignored it. I later signed a plea a year later due to my public defender needing time to look at the case... Read more »

If you entered a guilty plea before the end of your outside date, with the assistance of counsel and there was a written statement that you agreed made you guilty of the crime you plead guilty to it would be very difficult to get the court to allow the withdrawal of your guilty plea.... Read more »

The first thing I would need to know before I can answer this question is: When you were in front of the Judge for sentencing were you nice and compliant with the system, Judge, prosecutor and your attorney or were you a pain in the butt?
It was locked and i gained access to it and tried all other means for help i could think of. Only charged with Unlawful possession of a firearm and nothing else. Cop justified the shooting of the cow.
answered on Jan 27, 2023
I am sorry but NO you can not possess a firearm for any reason. Make sure you follow the law so that you don't get charged with an offense that can be avoided by just remembering that your past actions have consequences.
Have a great day

Are you charged with a crime? Possession of a firearm? Something like that ?
Did you mention any of this to the officer?
Where was it found? How was it found?
Do you have your gun rights revoked so that it is a major charge against you for having the gun?
answered on Jan 9, 2023
Are you incarcerated because of a pending charge against you unrelated to the issue that you are a witness of?
Do you have an attorney? If not are you going to hire private counsel OR ask for the appointment of an attorney by the court to represent you?

I don't understand your question completely and I need context. Is there someone that is being held in jail or at a state mental facility due to a criminal offense in the State of WA
I found what looked to be an abandoned vehicle so I stopped to look into it see what I can find, I got in and chickened out immediately and cops showed up as soon as I closed the door on my way out and turns out the vehicle was stolen.
answered on Nov 14, 2022
I already gave you advise about getting an attorney. You need help to explain the circumstances and get the prosecutor to understand what happened. HOWEVER, your decision to enter into the vehicle was criminal. You should NOT have done that. Get an attorney

I am an attorney here in Moses Lake WA, some 3 hours away from Seattle. I am not sure what county your charge is in but you need an attorney. If you can't afford to hire a private attorney ask the court to appoint you one. If your not eligible for the appointment of an attorney by the court... Read more »
A year ago I called the police because my ex had assaulted me but they didn't find probable cause. Now I know there's a witness can I go and refile a police report? The witness is a minor, will this change the outcome? Is it worth the trouble of trying to press charges?

You asking the wrong people! This is a question forum that goes to defense attorneys, not law enforcement or prosecutor's. We are the ones that would represent the accused.
With that say, NOBODY should have to put up with or deal with anyone assaulting them. If this happened to... Read more »

You need to ask for the court to appoint you an attorney because you are charged with a criminal offense of Theft of a motor vehicle it sounds like. OR if you can hire your own private attorney OR if the court says that you have to hire your own attorney DO IT.

If I'm stopped by police here in Utah will they extradite me back to wa state
answered on Sep 26, 2022
For a felony warrant it is possible. Not guaranteed
You should contact an attorney in that county (or in WA State) and get something started before you get picked up and maybe a court date can be set and an appearance done so that you don't have to START the process in jail. That is my advise.
