Henry Ambrose answered on Apr 27, 2022

Yes you can but it would be a great idea to ask a lawyer to help you with this. It might be that part of the negotiation for the plea could include an agreement where you are only supervised by one probation department.

Q: Since I made bail, the Judge said I would be expected to pay for a lawyer if I can make bail. Is that the law?

Some jurisdictions do that, but no, if you don't have a way to pay for a lawyer the state has to provide one. Call the Public Defenders office and ask them for help.

Q: What does it mean when it says TN code 39-13-507 (b)(1)(repealed)

Henry Ambrose answered on Apr 27, 2022

I think what you have written must be a mistake. The code section does not exist but come close to a law prohibiting use of certain kinds of evidence in criminal prosecutions of sexual assault victims. Try asking your question again.

Ask the judge to appoint a lawyer to represent you. You might be able to get more time to get your license or maybe set up a payment plan to pay the $900.

You need a lawyer to help you with this. If you violated your probation unwillingly because you were actually in the hospital when you were supposed to report or come to court you may have a valid excuse. You will have to prove this with documentation from the hospital or your doctor.

Q: In TN I was arrested and charged a misdemeanor drug charge. I bonded out and went to GA where I live and missed court

Henry Ambrose answered on Apr 27, 2022

You may be able to help yourself by showing up for court rather than waiting to get arrested and taken to jail. Hire a lawyer and follow his or her advice. A lawyer who practices in the court where you have your case should have an idea about how the court handles problems like yours.

Q: I have a partial book draft on my wife’s life which is receiving interest from other writers? How do I protect my IP.

My wife’s life and passing were of national interest, so a timely decision on a book is a wise idea. How do I retain the intellectual property I am producing if I choose to collaborate with another writer who has a professional writing career and who has approached me about the subject.

Look for a lawyer who regularly works with copyright law and publishing contracts. This can be a complicated situation to cover properly and not suited to simple on-line answers. If the work you have done has commercial value, it is probably worth consulting a qualified lawyer who can carefully... Read more »
