The best person to ask is your probation officer. I don't think anyone else would know why.
about seeing probation
answered on Feb 23, 2021
That is a question you can ask the Judge. When you are on probation, you can't expect a full panoply of rights.
answered on Feb 23, 2021
Tell why you don't want to come in. If they say too bad come in anyway, then you have to go in. You have no real control over the situation. If you don't go in, they will report to the judge that you have absconded and a warrant will be issued for you. Good luck!

You need to hire a quality attorney and go through these facts with him or her. You may have a suppression claim. Good luck.

It depends on where you are charged and the quality of the attorneys there. It might be that you can only get a public defender. Good Luck!

Your worst case scenario is being revoked and given your 5 years to serve. However, your attorney might be able to negotiate something better than that. Good luck!

Your boyfriend was released on his own recognizance. He still has to shop up for court until the matter is disposed by the court. Good luck.

I agree with Mr. Denison. You would have to have a serious murder charge or be a defendant in a capital case in order to have more than one lawyer. There might a few other serious matters where they would give you more than one lawyer but it is not a frequent occurrence. Good luck with your case.

If you are unhappy with your lawyer, then you should seek a different lawyer to represent you. You do not have to keep a lawyer with whom you are not happy. Good luck!

Father and son lives together and son has guns locked up in his room and father has no key to room or access to guns. Can father be charged with guns if so what would charges be?
answered on Aug 31, 2018
Father could be charged with felony in possession of a firearm or handgun. Being in the same house where there are guns is considered constructive possession for purposes of the statute. They need to remove guns from the home or the father needs to move.
He bumped my vehicle with his. I didn't want to press charges but the state picked it up. Do I have to testify if I don't want to?

In Kentucky, there is a privilege to not not have your spouse testify. You must have been married before the incident in question and still be married the time you would be called to testify. Consult your attorney about all the details to spousal privilege. Good luck.
Someone has information about me you could only get from the discovery and or court documents.
