I would really need more information. It depends a lot on if there is any evidence he had knowledge or if he maybe did or said something after. It also depends with his co defendant says. He needs to get an attorney and get help as this is a serious charge. I offer a free consultation if you want...View More
Yes, however depending how long the case has been going on the court may not allow the attorney time to get ready so you would need to talk to the potential new attorney to have them evaluate if they could get more time and if they could be prepared if the judge denied a continuance.

Good afternoon. For the two that are on probation, if it is formal probation with a probation officer one of the terms is that you report police contact. If it were to come up later and you had not reported it, then it could be a problem. If it is informal probation there is no need to do anything.
Good afternoon. It will depend a lot on what the warrant is for.

a copy of the cases in which he was charged and convicted of. His name was not mentioned in the 'BODY' of the indictments. The cases are as follows: (G.S #14-27 2a2), (G.S #14-39), (G.S #14-32a) and (G.S #87). How do I obtain copies of these cases? Please advise.
I would say contact his attorney or attorneys if they weren't all the same. Otherwise, you may be able to hire an attorney to do an "investigation" which is basically to go to the courts and get the copies for you.
I would need to get a little more information but if you had to leave and go back to the country you are claiming asylum from that could be a problem and you need to talk to an attorney to figure out the best way to handle it. That being said it would not be impossible. Also, if your interview had...View More
