You cannot control what the task force cops tell the ADA who issued the subpoena. The Court will look to the named cops to assure your attendance. Just go tell the truth, or refuse to answer, and everything will be okay. Insist on representation before you testify. Good luck.

Got a DUI at around age 17, which is because I admitted to having a beer and was given a ticket and released to parents. Got an actual DWI, refused breath test and visibly drunk, at around age 19. No issues since, just wondering if it should happen again if it would be a felony.

However, if you are thinking about the possibility of it happening again, then your conduct has not been adjusted to assure it does not happen again. So, it WILL happen again ... eventually. Here's a clue. You live in...Read more »

Since the safe was in my home, can the combination safe be opened and I be charged with the contents? I don’t know what was in the safe or the safe combination but the owner is harassing me to claim the safe and try to get it back from the police.
First, quit listening to people in jail for legal advice. Second, if you claim the safe, it's yours, contents and all. Third, whether the safe can be opened is a search and seizure question, and all the probable cause issues, warrant issues, etc. have to be answered. You have provided insufficient...Read more »

Police make mistakes. It's your lucky day. The solution to your problem cannot be resolved by a lawyer's advice. Can you be arrested? Yes, you were. Will the case stick? That depends ... Good luck with your choice.
