I think so. A person doesn't lose her/his civil rights by being placed on a W & I section 5150 hold. However, I'm sure the usual and customary visiting hours would apply, as would any reasonable restrictions on the person's right to receive visitors. Much more information is... Read more »

If your case is on appeal to the California court of appeal, you cannot appeal to the 9th Circuit court of appeals.

Louis George Fazzi answered on Apr 21, 2021

You really have not disclosed sufficient information to allow for meaningful advice. Whether you were a minor at the time is of little relevance now.

The local police can search your property for someone else if they have a reasonable suspicion to believe the person might be present there, if they have a warrant to do the search, and in some cases even without a warrant. It depends on all the circumstances.

Q: Can I have multiple attorneys present in interview with LAPD? Can police only allow one attorney to be present?

For example have 6 attorneys in the interview room.

Louis George Fazzi
Louis George Fazzi answered on Apr 13, 2021

You can take a whole army with you, but don't be surprised that they limit the attendance. Two might work, or even three, but when you get more than that the size of the interview room becomes an issue. Be prepared when they ask you why you need so many lawyers to advise you.
