Grandson arrested. Refused all tests. Police noted that he refused breath and blood test. He was taken to jail and the jail called the ambulance to take to hospital for test he had already refused. He refused again at hospital and cop drove him back to jail. Got bill for ambulance ride. Did not pay... Read more »
A mandatory restraining order, unless it is modified prior to or during probation, remains in fully force and effect. That means there is no automatic modification of the order without filing a motion to modify the restraining order and asking a judge to modify it. Otherwise it terminates when...Read more »
This is a common mistake of law. Simply put - once a warrant issues - the statute of limitations is stopped and cannot run. The law calls this a "tolling" of the statute. Therefore the warrant ramains in force and the case must be defended.
A detective came to me and said he had a court order for a dna mouth swab it says that the state has reason to believe that the crime of powpo was committed by me 18-12-108 that was it so i was wondering if that was all they were charging me with our could there be more?

It seems like a violation of my personal... Read more »
Unfortunately it is not only legal it is very commonly the case. You cannot drink alcohol anywhere. When you accept probation - you accept the conditions of probation. In a DUI case it is within the Judge's discretion to order everything in your post. I wish it were different. Good Luck.
He had money on him from work and it was given back to him. It was tough parenting on our part. We flew him back to Texas 2 days after which then cause a failure to appear. Today we took care of the warrant through a bail bond and he has a Pre trial in 10 days
I strongly agree with Brian - we are both ex career prosecutors and believe that whenever a person is charged with a felony - they should obtain an attorney. The stakes surrounding a felony conviction are life changing and can be permanent.
The Judge just signed off on a summons for a family that will not return stolen property, which in this case is my service dog. When the police go over to serve this summons, does it now mean the police have jurisdiction to pick up my dog and return him home? He has been deamed "stolen... Read more »
