You need to consult your divorce attorney and move to hold him in contempt in the divorce case. He will likely have to hold you harmless on the debt regardless.

Criminal defense attorneys are not technically required to talk to anyone but the defendant. Cheap or court-appointed attorneys are often too busy to talk to the defendant's loved ones.

Q: Is it illegal to give my friend Bitcoin money for drugs

My friend wants me to give them Bitcoin in order for them to buy drugs online. I will not ever see these drugs or partake in them, I would simply just give the money to my friend so that they can buy drugs online. Will I get in any trouble for doing this?

Getting a dismissal in a case like this isn't about filing motions and forms. The most likely path to dismissal will require a suppression hearing, the success of which is likely to depend on legal technicalities regarding the stop, the search, the arrest, and the transition from a traffic...

Once the admission of possession of an illegal substance was made, the officer had a legal right to search your car. Whether the officer was going to "bust up" your car or impound your vehicle to perform an inventory search is speculation. Call your lawyer. Good luck.

If the case is dismissed now then you will be released from the bond. However, if you are later indicted an arrest warrant will be issued because you are no longer on bond. The state has up to 3 years to indict you for most felonies so should be sure that the prosecutors don't want the case... Read more »
