If he’s waiting to be sentenced for his federal gun case could they extend his sentencing for breaking the bond conditions and being involved in the hit and run?
answered on Mar 19, 2023
It is possible for a federal court to consider a defendant's conduct while on bail or pretrial release when imposing a sentence for a separate offense. If your boyfriend has been charged with violating the conditions of his release and/or for his involvement in a hit and run, these charges... Read more »

I was planning on commiting suicide when a friend called the police on me and a firearm was found in my car which was on federal property. I was just given a court appearance citation which is in 2 days. I don't know how much trouble I could be in and I need help.

Go to your court appearance and either ask for a public defender or more time to hire an attorney. He will need an attorney report for this type of charge. Generally, it is a misdemeanor.

There is no bar with a conviction of driving suspended to ownership of a firearm as allowed under other applicable laws of Virginia and the US.

Your description requires a series of follow-up questions, but other than the car registration, I don't see anything that is likely to excite a prosecutor. There may well be a question of undue influence or competence at the time she signed everything over to him, but you will likely need to... Read more »
For electronic monitoring instead of prison, I was denied because she doesn't have jurisdiction since she sentenced me. Who can I talk to about it now.
answered on Oct 14, 2021
Federal court is very strict with procedures and Home electronic monitoring should have been requested at sentencing. If the sentencing judge has lost jurisdiction, there is little that can be done, particularly if the appeal time has passed.
my last theft was from 3 years ago and all I had for this new theft charge was a necklace and nothing else.
answered on Jul 19, 2021
Its almost impossible to answer this question in a vacuum. There are too many variables. You say your "LAST" theft charge. You didn't say your "only other" theft charge. If this is your third or more theft charge, there is a higher probaility of at least SOME jail time.... Read more »
I am active duty and live in Virginia where open carry is legal. My question is, a lot of establishments ban open carry unless you’re law enforcement. I’ve seen different things online, but are we still technically law enforcement?
answered on Mar 30, 2021
Neither the Commonwealth of Virginia nor the federal government recognize you as a law enforcement officer. You don't have the ability to arrest or do any of the other things that are unique to police powera. That having been said, this is really more about the rules a private entity has set... Read more »

Does an underage felony conviction prevent firearm ownership for the rest of my life?

At this point, now that you are 29, you should be able to purchase a firearm as long as you weren't convicted of certain violent offenses. You can actually follow up with the State Police to ask them about the firearms form because they run all background checks for firearm purchases. here... Read more »

Sounds like they are putting pressure on you with the hopes that you cooperate with them. Call a local criminal lawyer to understand the liability you are facing. There is not enough information in your question to get any meaningful advice here.

Ask your probation officer whether you should bring the pills in their container or whether you should simply bring a pharmacy printout.

Sounds like it could be a paperwork error. You need to have a lawyer file a post-trial motion on your behalf to make sure the court's records are correct.

Assuming the credit application and the lease do not require a disclosure about a previous crime, he may not have to disclose it. I would need to review all the documents before I could tell you for sure.

In most jurisdictions, you never need to provide information to police. But don't lie or mislead the police, that could get you in trouble. Politely tell the police you were not a witness to the crime, you were not involved in the incident and your only involvement was to call the police to... Read more »

answered on Jun 25, 2019
Your question is not clear. If you are saying that $7000 is missing from the group, then you could be charged with fraud if they can show that you took the money. If they cannot show that you can access to the money, then you probably won't be charged. Of course, if you helped someone take the... Read more »
