Boyfriend and I had an argument it became physical and my friend called police they made me write a statement and say I wanted to press charges... He sees judge in morning I want to recant but how do I do this?
Contact the District Attorney's office in the county where the case in question is pending and ask about filing an affidavit of non-prosecution. Clearing your warrant before you meet with the DA would be a good idea as well. Good luck.
I have a warrant they didn't take me as long as I made a statement and said I would press charges now I regret it and want my bf home he has court in the morning and they filed a 30 day no contact order what do I do?
You may make any statement you desire; what the State does in response to any such statement is another matter. You cannot force dismissal of criminal charges or removal of a protective order. Talking with an attorney would help. Good luck
Police can ask anyone anything they want anytime anywhere. What can be done with the information and whether it will be admissible as evidence in any court proceeding is another issue. Talk with your attorney.
Paying the fine on the ticket finalized the matter and it is on your record permanently. It is virtually impossible to "remove" any conviction; the objective is to avoid anything from ever being reported. Next time, call an attorney BEFORE you pay anything or do anything with the court. Good luck
For criminal law purposes, a 17 year old is an adult. I doubt any government official will talk with you about your son's case unless you are a licensed attorney. I suggest you meet with your son's attorney of record. Good luck.

Did you have insurance on the car when you were stopped? If not, and the officer made a clerical error, then the citation was properly issued.

If you were at the location where and when the drugs were found, then the fact you were arrested is not surprising. It is similar to when police find drugs in a car and everyone who was in the car at the time is arrested. Drugs do not come with a title or certificate of ownership. The attitude...Read more »

I am not sure of your exact question, but if you believe you are not guilty of the offense you were arrested for, then enter a plea of not guilty, set your case for trial and force the State to prove any allegation against you beyond a reasonable doubt. Call your attorney. Good luck.
