I am not familiar with that term. Whenever an officer seeks a search warrant, they must describe, with specificity, the areas they wish to search and what it is they are looking for. If the warrant is signed off on by a judge, they are allowed to look anywhere in the premises that could...Read more »
In 1991 I was commited to state prison for a 288(a). I served my time and completed my parole in 2000. I had no legal troubles and always registered as a pc 290 until 2007 when I was convicted of a 459 2nd degree burglary. I have a gps monitor and am not allowed to return home to Hesperia due to my...

It would depend on who is ordering you to wear the GPS monitor and to not be in Hesperia. If it is your parole officer, then you would need to take it up with them, if it is a court order, you may be able to calendar a motion and get that order modified.

No. California Health and Safety Code 11550 (here is a link http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=hsc&group=11001-12... ) does not vary by location. It is simply illegal to be under the influence.
The prosecutor must file charges within a specified period of time. If the charges are not filed timely, prosecution may be barred.

My question is what do i do now when in fact I was... Read more »
Easy, be on time. It is not uncommon for judges to start court promptly, and if they get around to your case and you are not there (whether that takes 5 minutes or two hours), they are not very likely to wait for you. They will issue a warrant to maintain jurisdiction and move on to other matters.
There aren't criteria; there are factors the court will considers when deciding whether or not to exercise it's discretion and strike the prior strike. Judges look at the length of time since the last conviction and the current offense, the nature of the previous offense, whether or not the court...Read more »
I have nowhere to live in Santa Clara county after the end of the month and I have no income. I'm trying to relocate in Stanislaus county but my probation officer is rejecting my request on the grounds that I've transferred twice already.
Remember that the probation department works for the court, so if you can't get your probation officer to agree to something, you can calendar a motion in front of a judge and ask the judge to order the probation officer to do what you are asking.

Attempted burglary and attempted robbery are serious charges, however with the count of conspiracy there is no way of knowing what role your husband is alleged to have played in the crime and it certainly says nothing about the strength of the evidence. You need to call your husband's lawyer and...Read more »
