Q: If i plead guilty to sales and being investigated for a death resulting will they charge me if i plead out to the sales
I have been being investigated for a year now for a death resulting. I havent plead guilty to my sales charges from a year ago because im afraid if i do they are going to charge me with the dealth resulting. Im doing so good now and just had a baby and have been sober for a year and did lots of programs. my plea date is monday. I dont know what to do.. i want to get it over with and my plea bargain is good.. all time suspended.. but im just afraid if i plead out the attorney general will charge me with the death resulting because they will be able to use the fact that i sold around the same time the kid died. I am really stuck and scared. This case is in new hampshire.
A: Your case is in New Hampshire, but you posted this inquiry to Fla. attorneys, who cannot advise you unless they happen to be a member of the New Hampshire Bar. In any event, this is definitely not an issue that you can get an answer to from any attorney, anywhere, simply by posting an on-line inquiry. There would need to be a thorough review of the case filings and your record in order for any attorney to give meaningful advice. Finally, it is mind-boggling that you apparently are representing yourself. If you cannot afford an attorney, you should be eligible for the public defender.
A: Mr. Baron, persons responding to questions in this forum, either Florida questions or New Hampshire questions don't necessarily have to be members of the respective bars. See the note below, which provides that
