The police executed a search warrant and took cell phones, among other things. Can the person whose phone was taken go out and buy a new cell phone so that they have a way to communicate or will the police come and take the new cell phone?

This is because the court appearance is a separate requirement from your bail conditions.... Read more »
I found an email between my lawyer and prosecutor. Don't know why he sent them to me but the prosecutor says my speedy date is set to run out before my trial date. Him and my lawyer both ignored it.

The first thing I would need to know before I can answer this question is: When you were in front of the Judge for sentencing were you nice and compliant with the system, Judge, prosecutor and your attorney or were you a pain in the butt?

It was locked and i gained access to it and tried all other means for help i could think of. Only charged with Unlawful possession of a firearm and nothing else. Cop justified the shooting of the cow.
answered on Jan 27, 2023
I am sorry but NO you can not possess a firearm for any reason. Make sure you follow the law so that you don't get charged with an offense that can be avoided by just remembering that your past actions have consequences.
Have a great day
I was pulled over for destruction of public property. They said the parks will sometimes make a deal instead of pressing charges. What should I do? Also if I work out a deal do this goes on my record for jobs and such?
answered on Jan 25, 2023
Sorry to hear. Destruction of property can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony (depending on the level of damage). This definitely could go on your criminal record. It would be a good idea to reach out to a criminal defense attorney to see if they can investigate further...and hopefully work out... Read more »

Are you charged with a crime? Possession of a firearm? Something like that ?
Did you mention any of this to the officer?
Where was it found? How was it found?
Do you have your gun rights revoked so that it is a major charge against you for having the gun?
answered on Jan 9, 2023
Are you incarcerated because of a pending charge against you unrelated to the issue that you are a witness of?
Do you have an attorney? If not are you going to hire private counsel OR ask for the appointment of an attorney by the court to represent you?

The case was dismissed via pre-trial diversion agreement. No prior record in any state before or since. No order of protection nor under any investigations. This happened two years ago and the case was dismissed in 2021
answered on Jan 3, 2023
A pretrial diversion agreement typically does not involve any finding or conviction. Because your case remained in pretrial status and was ultimately dismissed you will not lose your right to possess firearms as a result of entering into the agreement. You may want to confirm that your case was... Read more »
