I was in an accident due to a failure to yield left and they found me at fault for the accident. I was told by the officer in charge that I would be able to pay my citation and plead guilty for the charge, but now it says I have a mandatory court appearance. It is a misdemeanor for crim/traffic and... Read more »
If the officer checks the "property damage or injury" box on the citation, the court appearance becomes mandatory. That means failure to appear will result in an arrest warrant. A misdemeanor is a crime punishable by a maximum of 90 days jail, though jail is rare in cases like this....Read more »
I doubt the police would do anything, but you could report them stolen if you did not consent to them being taken. Be prepared for the police to tell you that it is a civil matter they won't assist with.
I am wondering about how courts are dealing with this COVID mess and the required hours for community service. Instead of doing Sentence-to-serve, I have been approved to do community service but have been having a difficult time fulfilling my hours. My deadline has already been pushed back twice...

I would expect that a probation and a judge would give extensions for this reason, but in the end would require the time to be served in jail. After all, community service is considered a jail substitute by the courts. Therefore, if it were me, I'd simply find a way to get the hours done....Read more »

There is no way to answer this question given the information in this question. I understand that this is your recitation of what occurred in the trial. I presume that the county attorney would view things much differently. The only way to assess the legitimacy of your conviction would be to...Read more »
I am being told you can and I am being told you can't from 2 different people. One is saying Minnesota doesnt have castle law or stand your ground law so you have to flee first. The other is saying you can just pull out gun and kill the person without trying to flee.
Minnesota has a version of the castle doctrine. Under State law a person has no duty to retreat from their own home and is allowed to use deadly force, including shooting an intruder, to prevent a felony from occurring within the home.
This question is not particularly clear. If you are asking about a prior used to enhance to a gross misdemeanor, all they need is the fact of the conviction. The state doesn’t have to reprove the prior offense. Contact me directly if this does address your question.
The fact that they did nothing illegal. They were accused of pointing a laser pointer at a police officer, but from what we've found so far, pointing a laser pointer at an individual is not recognized as a crime in MN by any means. It is a felony to point one at an aircraft, we know. They are... Read more »
So it is difficult to know what the legal basis for holding this individual might be without seeing the police reports. O would presume that if your friend is charged with assault 4 that your friend is accused of doing more than simply pointing a laser pointer at someone. There is not a ton that...Read more »

It’s impossible to say without more information. If you have your case number available a call to a lawyer could be informative. In the future the night before an appearance in criminal court isn’t the ideal time to decide it’s worth taking seriously.
Not sure if CO means Colorado. If so you need to ask the question in a Colorado forum. If you mean county, they can hold you until the county with the warrant picks the person up - usually a couple of days.
I have a violation for a medicine I was prescribed showing up as methamphetamine. I am prescribed adderall but I'm a veteran they give multiple brands of dextroamphetamine which is active ingredient in adderall. The VA has well documented uas when I went for PTSD therapy. So they know what... Read more »
