I was walking downtown to get food with my friends a few hours after Minneapolis sent out an amber alert (on iPhones) warning people that there was a curfew set. Curfew was set at 9:00 pm and we were downtown around 1:00 am. I was not in Minneapolis at the time the amber alert was sent, so I did... Read more »
This is a misdemeanor charge. You are putting the cart before the horse on expungement. The case is still pending and you can’t get it expunged yet. The fees could vary quite a bit. Consult directly with an attorney about how expensive the retainer might be.
There isn't a limit if it is a hung jury. That is a basis for a mistrial and you can be retried. Much more information would be needed to address the malicious prosecution question intelligently. Follow up directly with a criminal defense attorney. Most will provide a free consultation.
he just took the jar. I gave him my id and then he wrote what looks like my license number and my DOB down. and then he said we can go on our way.

You can provide proof of insurance after the fact, once you are charged, and the charge will be dismissed. The speeding ticket will ultimate be an issue of credibility, but you might still be able to keep it off of your record. An attorney can help.

An individual doesn't "put charges" on anyone. You can certainly report the matter to law enforcement. Whether this individual will be charged depends on whether there are any orders that prohibit contact such as a DANCO or an OFP. He could be charged if there are such orders...Read more »
He does have a public defender he’s not comfortable with,I keep running into road blocks,my question is how to find a pro bono criminal attorney.He has no income and is on Social Security disability but that ended when he got incarcerated.I just really need some direction!!
All you can really do is contact attorneys directly to see if they would handle the case pro bono. But the reality is that the public Defender’s office represents those who can’t afford an attorney. You may need to pay for his representation if he can’t afford his own attorney.
Let me start by saying this is my first violation for anything like this.I asked the guy for his ID and he ignored and said this is it, I had a line and just wanted to have the transaction done with and not start an argument over his ID, so I just let it slide. (I know dumb on my part, but I just... Read more »

It is unclear from you question whether you received the ticket while in a commercial vehicle or if you got it in your personal vehicle. If it was in your personal vehicle, there is some chance that the prosecutor may be willing to reach an agreement where it would remain off of your record. A...Read more »

I would suggest that your daughter contact the county attorney for the county where this occurred. That office should be able to answer your specific questions about why the suspect was released. It is impossible to know without more information what occurred here.
I took a speeding ticket to court via Zoom. An accused before me was took a speeding reduction from 75 to 65 in a 60 zone. While I was waiting for my turn, I noticed on the MNCIS that the previous conviction was sent to DPS. When my turn came up, I was offered a similar reduction plea (69-60), but... Read more »
