I am not sure what advice you need. He needs a lawyer. You are not responsible, the officer charged based on the evidence he has. You cant stop thos even if you want to. Be forthright about how you want the case handled. The Distrixt Attorney doesnt have to listen to you but a lot of times...Read more »
Is it possible to purchase a firearm and acquire a CCL? It has been ten years since I was charged with this type of crime and I am actively looking to expunge it so I can take up my hobby of shooting and being able to protect my family again.
The challenge is that you are likely prohibited by federal law from possessing a firearm. This is for two reasons, the fact that your punishment could have been for more than 1 year and secondly because it was for a crime of violence. The feds define crime of violence as "an offense that has as...Read more »
I was doing my routine walk around the local community college, and I usually stop inside a building for water and food. And I accidentally set off an alarm because apparently the campus is on lock down for COVID-19. And I was not informed about this, so I went to the campus police. But before I... Read more »
Highly dountful. Unless tou left out some facts the most to be worried about would be a summary trespass violation. Summary trespass would come in the mail. You made an admission which they can use against you. If you have a clean record and there are no missing facts a citation is the most...Read more »
He beat me on 3/6& 3/8 I did not report it. 3/10 he tried to have me committed by 302 order signed by the judge. The police forcefully took me to the hospital I then decided I to have charges brought against him, the police officer said “one thing at a time if and when you get out come see me”.... Read more »
Unfortunately, this is a mess, as you well know. The challenge is you are reacting to his moves so your credibility is at issue. The officer does not have to charge if there are significant cresibility issues. What I would suggest is you contact your counties womens support organization....Read more »

Depends on the status of the PFA. If its still a temp he can argue you arent really afraid of hom since you keep contacting him. Additionally, if he is contacting you in response to you contact it makes it harder fornyou to argue he is in contempt. If you get a PFA against someone you cant get...Read more »
To who? You have a PFA against them thus you are not the subject of the order. You contacting them is not against the law. The other person is the subject of the order. If they are smart they wont accept your communication and document the harassment with the police.
Per the facts you put forth you are a first offense DUI (there is a 10 year lookback period). However, this is your third offense lifetime. Some District Attorneys will want to add time because of this. You are looking at a likely mandatory sentence of up to 72 hours, with a $1000 fine in...Read more »
December 31, 2018 my daughter father/ my best friend died from an overdose. No one ever contacted me, his girlfriend, or his mother during this course. I found out who was in charge of his investigation and she asked me to come, she told me alot and what she could, now a new person is in charge. I... Read more »
There is a lot of information missing here to give you a good answer. Reaching out to the District Attorneys office would be a normal course of action. Keep in mind they may know nothing about the investigation but many times, depending on county, if its a drug delivery resulting in death...Read more »
I was accused of forgery from a woman that I was doing landscaping for, she recently passed away and I received a plea agreement from the state, I have not accepted it, as most officers have told me that the case will be thrown out. What are my next steps from here, will this case be thrown out?
Most "officers"? Hopefully, you have an attorney working with you. As Mr. Hall noted the complainant being deceased doesnt necessarily end the case. There are a number of ways to prove it without her. If you have gone through discovery with your attorney you should know what other evidence they...Read more »
Generally, the legality of a vehicle stop/search comes up as a suppression issue. This is an effort to keep the information from the tryer of fact as it was illegally gotten (fruit of the poisonous tree). However, if there are wuestions about the stop they could impact the veracity of the...Read more »
My ex girlfriend went to the police saying that I was harassing her over text. The police called me and gave me the option to cease. All contact has stopped! Am I still in the clear or how long do I know if something is going to happen?
Some counties allow a second DUI ARD. Many dont. The only way to get this answer is to contact a local attorney. Lancaster County has very specific rules to get ARD and if you dont adhere to them strictly they will deny.

We do not currently have an official custody arrangement. It has been 9 years since we divorced. The children are both 15 years old. We are afraid to go for court for one because the children don't want to see their father more than they have to if we fail to get sole custody. However, the father... Read more »
I am not sure what safe legally means? The father has an equal right to see his children, so a court may order visitation. The children's viewpoint is one of 16 factors the court considers in ordering visitation. Here is where it gets nasty. Florida is a member of the custody compact but they...Read more »
Eventually. The idea is that they will hopefully pick you up when you are out and about. But every county does roundups every so often. Ideally, they will catch you in your car, for a speeding ticket, then you are an easy target. Eventually, they will come to get you though (holidays are a...Read more »
