You are going to have to get a ruling from the judge on the length of sentencing for VOP. He needs an attorney. He can't do it himself. If he cannot afford one, then he should ask for a public defender to be appointed or contact Legal Aid and see if he can get an attorney there.
I'm not certain that I understand the question. Why do you identify the person as "mother" if she hits her Dad? If someone files assault charges, and you are convicted, your child can be taken away. Usually, that type of action goes through the Department of Children's services.
First of all, the Tennessee District Attorneys are very against marijuana usage, because it is a crime. If you are young, and it is your first time offence, then there may be the possibility that a good attorney could get you off of pre-trial diversion. If you could do that, then you would have a...Read more »
If you were booked, then you had a right to be bonded out, unless you are on no bond. The 8th Amendment to the United States Constitution provides for bail.

There seem to be a few options. First, I would look at the workers' compensation law angle. Generally speaking, pursuant to T.C.A. Section 50-6-204, you have thirty (30) days to turn in a workers' compensation injury to your employer. If the thirty (30) days have not passed, then turn in written...Read more »
It really depends on a lot of factors. The facts of the case will dictate what the District Attorneys may ultimately offer. There are alternatives to jail time, such as probation and community service. Ultimately, the judge must approve everything.
I don't understand your question. You don't indicate that there are any criminal charges. If someone merely dies from pneumonia, that, in and of itself, has nothing to do with the criminal law system, so how would you be guilty of tampering with evidence or spoilation of evidence? There has to...Read more »
