If you are not convicted of DA or have any other firearm disabilities, then you can possess firearms. However that charge is probably on your record if not expunged. So you will fail a NCIC. Might want to expunge it.

DA is a very serious crime, worse than some felonies. Hire an attorney. Do not plead guilty under any circumstances except Diversion. 11 mo/29 days, fine and no firearms ever.

If you actually own the property, then file a Detainer Warrant in Sessions Court. Do not talk or argue with her about it. You may need an attorney, especially if she does not leave after your judgment for possession.
Old charge from 2017. No weapons involved were involved at all. No other relating charges. Long since separated from significant other (at time). I now live alone and have my daughters off\on. I want to own one for personal and home defense because of this.

You can petition the court for a protective order so he cannot have contact with you. Without more details its hard to say if that is your best solution. You should call a lawyer where you live and ask for advice.

They can let the prosecutor know but it is also up to the prosecutor whether to continue pressing charges.
I would like to hunt and protect myself but I feel helpless.

Domestic Assault is worse than some Felonies, and you should have known that 25 years ago prior to pleading. I assume that conviction is on your NCIC. You may wish to examine the legal weapons you can possess. There are muzzleloaders that can kill an elephant.

Hire an attorney to prepare for a Preliminary Hearing. Do not get in more trouble.
After being released on bond, he immediately entered into a rehab program and will be back for the hearing. I’m not sure what happens since I’m not the one who called the cops. The big issue is alcohol and I would love for him to continue treatment. When sober, he doesn’t show any signs of... Read more »

This is complicated. You should talk to a counselor who works with these kind of situations. If you don't have that available to you talk with a trusted responsible family member or friend. This is not to determine his innocence or guilt or punishment, but rather to determine if you want to... Read more »

Will this cause him to violate his probation in another county

Costs are paid to the clerk's office. Failure to pay could result in further penalties.
Yet I never touched my 19 yr old daughter. Any advice?

Domestic Assault is a very serious offense, worse than some Felonies. Hire an attorney to prepare for a Preliminary Hearing. This is a public forum. Do not contact your Son under any circumstances. Diversion, Dismissal and Expungement should be sought if not Dismissed initially.

That is usually the deadline for Defendant to enter into an agreed upon guilty plea to a crime and an agreed Sentence. Otherwise a Trial Date is set.

Husband needs a competent attorney now. You all have not handled this correctly and have played into the domestic violence army's hand. Lawyer needs to prepare for a Preliminary Hearing, and you all need to not talk to anyone.
After the choking incident, the very next night in fact, there was another incident. He was not arrested or held the mandated 8 hours. Is the police department negligent in this case?
answered on Nov 4, 2022
Depends on a wide variety of factors. The hold is a mandatory 12 hours.
I was supposed to receive payment at a certain time only the other victim received payment
answered on Nov 4, 2022
Call the Court Clerk and inquire as to what is going on. It does sound like they forgot you. Have the Docket Number and Defendant's name handy. You could also call the DA that prosecuted the Case.
He should not be charged with aggravated assault I was mad and said things that weren’t true and wrote things on statement that wasn’t true. I want him out of jail and back with me
answered on Oct 24, 2022
Hire an attorney to represent and advise you. Defendant definitely needs an attorney also. That is a serious charge with permanent consequences. Do not talk to anyone else about this, especially the State.
