If no charges were filed and there are no other "holds" from other cases he may have, he should be released. However they have up to 1 year to file a misdemeanor and 3 years to file most felonies. If they don't have the evidence together yet (lab results, videos etc) they will...Read more »

I admitted I was previously involved in illegal drug possession although I was never arrested nor charged in that. At the moment I knew it was in the best interest of the court and I was being...

No, you have nothing to worry about. In fact, being truthful is what the entire process of Voir Dire is about so you did the right thing. Also, you can't be convicted based on just your own words; they need other evidence.
It all depends on if you hit a person (VC 20001) or an object and no injuries (VC 20002). If you left the scene and someone was injured (even if not your fault) it can be either a Felony or a Misdemeanor. If you just caused property damage, it is a straight misdemeanor. As far as jail time it...Read more »

If you let a person with a Suspended License drive your car, it can be impounded! It doesn't matter if your license is valid; it's the Driver who must have a valid license. Hopefully you didn't acknowledge knowing their DL was Suspended and can get your car out of impound faster.
First of all, have you appeared in Court already or did you not show and have a Bench Warrant? If you haven't appeared yet, your best bet is to show up to the Court that issued the warrant to ask that it be recalled and have the Public Defender appointed to represent you. That way, you may be...Read more »
In the field make officers can detain females. Whether the force was excessive is a factual situation for your lawyer to review. I am not site if the cops in Sacramento have Body Worn Cameras or Dash Cams that will show exactly what happened and whether it was within policy or not.

Twenty six years later they come take my guns and charge me with felony with firearms. There was no crime or event that... Read more »
I am not sure what relief you obtained (Certificate of Rehabilitation or Pardon) but it obviously didn't restore your gun rights! If you just received a Dismissal pursuant to PC 1203.4, commonly referred mistakenly as an Expungement, it definitely didn't restore them.
