This is very simple. Hire a lawyer immediately and have him or her take you to court to arrange the new bond. The actual amount of your new bond depends on many things that only a good local criminal lawyer can successfully communicate to your prosecutor and your judge. Don't try to do this...Read more »
If you really want an answer to a legal question, I think you should explain you situation more clearly. (And in the interest of clarity, I suggest you not refer to this woman as "my lady" or you might find the Sheriff of Nottingham coming into Sherwood Forest to get you, too!)...Read more »
If drugs are found under the driver seat of a car and the driver is the owner of the car, can the passenger be charged with possession because the driver/owner refuses to take ownership? If so, how likely is a case like that to stick?
You wouldn't be asking this question if this fact situation hadn't already occurred. So you know the answer already. The passenger(P) can be charged with possession. (If the assumptions I'm making are incorrect, then disregard my answer.)
The sheriff’s department follows me for 5 miles then 3 Sheriff’s Tahoes pull me over and says you have a felony warrant. I told him I don’t know what he is talking about and could I see a copy of it. He doesn’t have a copy and I said but, that is why 3 of you are pulling me over? He said... Read more »
No, police do not need probable cause to pull you over and arrest you if a felony warrant exists for your arrest. Probably the reason they followed you for 5 miles (how long did they follow you, about 5-7 minutes? )before pulling you over is they were in the process of trying to confirm the...Read more »
I was the victim of an assault from my ex. He was eventually charged (months after the assault) because I stayed in contact with the police department's Professional Standards Unit.

Sounds like your ex might have a relationship with the police of which you unaware. When certain people seem to get away with sketchy behavior time and time again, it often turns out they are working with the police. He may be a cooperating witness who the police just can't seem to control....Read more »

There is no way for attorneys who are unfamiliar with your husband's cases to have a clue whether he will get time served or serve a 1 year jail sentence. You haven't even told us what the charges are. The truth is, any lawyer who could know the answer to your question would be burned as...Read more »
He was defending himself and the girls he was with as this kid was going around the park bullying and assaulting girls. Touching them.

He needs an attorney that will fight to get him mental health help and not being institutionalized because that will do nothing to help him. He has no money and lost his job because of it. I’m not sure what to do because I’m the victim and he cannot have contact with me. His court appointed... Read more »
You can go to the court that issued the protective order and tell the judge that you want the portion of that order which prohibits your husband from talking to you removed from the protective order. That way you should be able to speak with him on the phone.
I assume you're asking me this because I answered your original question submitted to Justia. The problem is, I don't know what your original question was. Please copy and paste your original submission along with my answer so I can answer your present question.
I recently got a warrant for failure to appear and its remained without bond. My court appointed attorney assigned me a new court date & told me to go in with them to see if the judge can uplift my warrant.. is there a possibility that the judge will uplift the warrant or will I be sent...

This is a question other lawyers would probably do well not to answer. This is the kind of question to ask your attorney. He will likely be able to give you the most knowledgeable answer, even if it is that he doesn't know. No lawyer can predict what a judge will or won't do in any given...Read more »
In most cases it doesn't matter if your name is misspelled. So long as it's clear that it is you that the incorrect name refers to, there's no real reason to worry about it. Now if it is misspelled in the charging instrument (e.g. in the indictment if it's a felony or in the...Read more »
The passenger admitted they were his and that she had no knowledge of them being in his possession she thinks they will drop the charges on her I disagree and think she needs an attorney it's a 2nd degree felony
Since your girlfriend was arrested, there is very little chance that they will drop the charge against her. The fact that the passenger claimed ownership of the drugs is technically irrelevant to whether she is guilty. Temember, she is charged with possession, not ownership. In Texas and almost...Read more »

We hear these kinds of pleas for help far too often in Texas due to the nature of our system. I won't go into all the systemic problems which contribute to the CPS nightmare which you find yourself in. The good news is this: there is help out there. The bad news is this: the help you need is...Read more »
Of course you need to get another lawyer when the one you have says she can't win the case.
The one helpful thought I have is that maybe, since she herself claims to have dementia, she may be incompetent to testify against you. Unless there are other witnesses prepared to testify...Read more »

The answer is "yes", you can be charged if the police have reason to believe you are not telling the truth about how much you knew. Quit talking to the police and get a lawyer. If the police believed you, they wouldn't be threatening to try to convince the D.A. to prosecute you....Read more »
