This sounds like a scam by the "father" to get you to pay money.
Regardless, you should not admit to anything as it could trigger a criminal investigation and very serious charges. In the future you should never be sexting, as you have already discovered, it can get you in trouble.
Not all forms of "speech" are protected under the First Amendment. This is a lengthy and contested issue and tons of court cases on the extent of protection under the First Amendment. Arizona also has indecent exposure laws that could render your conduct criminal.
Rule 8 deals with your right to a speedy trial. Ask the court for a court-appointed attorney. If you are unable to afford an attorney and there is the possibility of jail time, an attorney will be appointed to represent you at little or no cost.
What likely happened is this was a refile. The DUI first time around was probably dismissed pending blood results. Then once the blood results came back positive for drugs or alcohol above .08, the State refiled the DUI charges. A summons and complaint was likely mailed to his last known...Read more »
I recently had shoplifting and a marijuana charge "set aside" by the Phoenix court. I am aware this is not the same as expungment. So my question is, can these charges still be held against me when renting an apartment or applying for a clearance card? I cant seem to find a straight answer on this.... Read more »
The reason you aren't getting a straight answer is because the charges, even if set aside, are still accessible when a background check is run. A set aside is different from an expungment because it doesn't seal the record. An employer for example running a background check can still see that you...Read more »
The defendant (fictional) was convicted with the help of the victim's testimony, and has spent 11 of his 13 year sentence (both characters were adults when the assault took place). Where would the most likely place of incarceration be? Is he eligible for parole? When released, is he allowed to move... Read more »
You aren't posting this in the right forum. I would recommend sitting in on trials and schedule a tour to visit one of the local jails. That's going to help you out way more than posting on here. This forum is designed for people who get themselves in legal trouble and are seeking help of...Read more »

The State must file charges within the statute of limitations. For misdemeanors the statute of limitations is 1 year. For felonies the statute of limitations is 7 years (and in some cases longer). However, it is unclear what you are referring to based on your question as it sounds like the...Read more »
Offense. I was charged with driving while revoked and taken to jail. After the stop the officer made a comment he thought my wife was a prostitute and that's what we were up to. The area we were in was near Metro Center Mall and i guess it's a high crime area. Neither of these is probable cause... Read more »
The standard for an officer to initiate a traffic stop is actually Reasonable Suspicion (not Probable Cause). Reasonable suspicion is a lower standard than probable cause. You really should consider hiring an attorney as we are very familiar with writing suppression motions. With reasonable...Read more »
In AZ I plead guilty for a diversion program, completed late. Conviction went in. As a result of miscommunication. I was told to appear in court 12 months from 10 26 15. I requested a extension a week prior and found out I had a warrant and court date was for 10/17/16. Judge accepted the late... Read more »
Based on your question, it appears you have a conviction now. Dismissing the PTR does not reverse the conviction. Instead, it just means that you are believed to be in compliance with probation and as a result the probation matter is (at least temporarily) not going forward.
If you have an interlock restriction on your license that means ANY vehicle you drive must have an ignition interlock equipped. Driving without an interlock is a class 1 misdemeanor punishable by up to 6 months jail, $2500 fine, and 3 years probation. That's the absolute maximum. Furthermore, if...Read more »
It depends on the agency. If it was a Phoenix PD officer that wrote up the report, it will be available online. Other agencies require you to make requests via mail or in person. You may have to wait a few days after the accident before the report is available.
As I answered in your earlier questions, if the judge allows Defensive Driving School that would allow the charge to get dismissed. If you live out of state, do you really want to travel back to attend your hearing and take the risk? A pace can be questioned, but again I recommend hiring an...Read more »
That's a felony so I expect whatever you are looking at shows that it was charged as a felony. Perhaps you took a plea to a misdemeanor. Without looking at the judgment, sentence, and order, it's hard to tell exactly what you were convicted of.
Possibly, if you accumulated 8+ points within a year then you face a three month suspension or Traffic Survival School. Each speeding violation (including criminal speeding) is 3 points. If you are eligible for Defensive Driving School, ask the judge to see if he or she will allow it. That would...Read more »
As per restitution, the store can seek the market value of the ring. Perhaps at a restitution hearing it can be argued that the market value is $18 if that is what the price tag was. However, even $40 sounds like a particularly inexpensive ring. Additionally, the shopkeeper can seek a civil...Read more »
