already been sentenced and pleaded guilty
answered on Aug 18, 2022
Generally no, but it definitely depends on the judge and the circumstances. If something has changed since the sentence was imposed, and not too much time has passed, a reasonable judge would at least listen and consider the request.
already been sentenced and pleaded guilty
answered on Aug 17, 2022
You needed to ask for this clarification at the time of sentencing because it sounds like the Judge sentenced this person to 60 days jail and so that is the way it is.
If there are circumstances that have changed that wasn't available to be talked about or discussed when it was done in... Read more »

You are right that person service requires service at your place of residence or to you directly. So if someone attempted to serve you at a place you do not live, service was not proper. This is true even if your friend later delivers the documents to you.
But that doesn't mean you... Read more »

I don't have the required information to answer this question. An "appeal with the State"? And "concrete evidence that you should never even filed one in the first place"? The question makes no sense to me. And I don't know any procedure for a "fraudulent... Read more »

A Washington attorney could advise best, but you await a response for three weeks. This sounds like a difficult claim, and such situations do arise when going from one insurance carrier to another, and a new claim arises near the start of coverage. If you've been issued a denial, review it if... Read more »

I sounds like that you should be prepared to file an appeal. There are very good lawyers in Washington DC who handle appeals on unemployment benefits. Talk to any one of them, before the 21 days is up.

juvenile convictions of any kind and if no, can the offender appeal the sentence 7 years into his 15 year sentence?
answered on Mar 1, 2018
If there were more than one count, each counts against the others as points. So for example, if a defendant pleads guilty to three separate felony counts in one case, her offender score is 2.

The appellate division of the public defender's office is probably what you need.
answered on Sep 20, 2015
It depends upon many factors. All you have given here is a question about how long. Appellate Courts usually take a very long time to decide cases.
