Continue re-asserting the speedy trial demand. This is something that an attorney can assist with. It’s unclear to me why the trial wouldn’t have already taken place since a speedy trial is typically within 60 days.
I do not have a permit to purchase a firearm. That said I went to meet with an old acquaintance off of Facebook the other day to look at a handgun for $500 I’m not a felon, but do have a juvenile record, when I was 16 I did 2 yrs in juvie for a robbery.. though part of my plea was that...

From this description, it appears the main problem is the potential for being charged with conspiracy to commit or attempted possession of a firearm by an ineligible person. That is a felony. And if convicted, it would likely result in several years in prison. As a result, going to the police...Read more »
I borrowed my truck to a friend been trying to get It back for 4 days and his brother told me my truck was stolen from the person I borrowed it to. He won't talk to me know and police said they can't put it in as stolen since I borrowed it out to start with. What do I do to get it back or get it... Read more »
Consider: 1. Contact civil (not criminal) attorney about filing a lawsuit for the value of the vehicle, and-or its safe return. 2. Notify your car insurance company, about a claim for a loss (before initiating your own lawsuit). 3. Private investigator, asset-skip tracer. Discuss all options with...Read more »
It was originally a Domestic Assault-Misdemeanor-Intentionally Inflicts/Attempts to Inflict Bodily Harm though was dismissed and then pled down to what I previously said in the beginning. I only admitted to Yelling at the victim in court which was part of the plea deal. Does it bar me from owning a... Read more »
A person with a 609.72, subd. 1 (3) conviction does not lose their civil rights to firearms in Minnesota. If there is a problem, check the court's records directly to verify that the conviction is for Minnesota Statutes Sec. 609.72, subd. 1 (3) - exactly. If the court conviction record shows only...Read more »
If you get a HRO on someone that lives down the street from you and their house is within the distance they were ordered to stay out of (distance from my home) do they need to move or what happens? The person the HRO is for lives down the street from me, does not own the home or have a rental... Read more »
If the respondent to the HRO is within the distance restriction, then they are in violation of the HRO and can be arrested each time they are within the restricted area. It would be in their best interest to move at least until hearing occurs about whether the HRO is going to remain in place and...Read more »
If I plead guilty will it be returned at my arraignment hearing when the judge most likely will give me a sentence? The charge is for theft and it's misdemeanor will the bail money be used to pay that off? If so how much is the fine for theft? I paid the whole 300 no bailbond was used. County is... Read more »
It will be kept by the Court until your case is resolved. That may or may not be at the arraignment. It depends on the county, but it will either be returned to you or applied to any fine once your case is over.
At 13 my son inappropriately touched his sister, my daughter, when she 11 years old. Due to bad advice, I reported this to the police and he had admitted to and was charged with 5th degree criminal sexual conduct. He was sentenced to probation and therapy, which he successfully completed. There... Read more »
It might. See my website pages detailing juvenile records, and expungement. Things may improve after age 27. And he might look into what I call a "super-expungement" (that would include MN Dept. of Human Services records) in juvenile court. The might grant or deny, however.
A Rule 8 hearing is a procedural hearing to provide you, or your attorney, with the discovery in your case. You should not say anything in Court and you need to figure out a way to secure representation. This is a felony offense and you should not be representing yourself. This is far too...Read more »
Error made on license; number is same on both but one has jean which is my middle name and the new license that was reinstated says dean and i had never noticed until being pulled over around xmas and the officer telling me that one is active and the other suspended. Had been pulled over a handful... Read more »
You might have a legal argument to prevent the suspensions. I would look into retaining an attorney to look into the situation so the exact facts are known and then to follow up with DVS and if necessary the Court.
We really need to retain an attorney for my boyfriend in Minnesota. His family is in Florida and I am in Alabama. I'm willing to retain the attorney but however I have no idea what the average cost is for a criminal defense attorney because none of us have ever dealt with this. Could you please... Read more »
She recently had a fight after school with a another girl. After the altercation the police interviewed several witnesses and said they will be charging. How can I protect her? What are her legal rights as a 16 year old.
Assault in the Third Degree is a felony offense. It is very serious and she needs an attorney. At this point, I assume that her case will be heard in juvenile court, but it is hard to know without more information. An attorney can help to protect her rights and to help minimize any consequences...Read more »
Not sure what your attorney has to do with this. Reading between the lines, it sounds as if you likely have to get a psych-sexual evaluation based on the costs. You could certainly have the evaluation done through probation which would be less expensive. The recommendations through that exam are...Read more »
Several weeks ago my daughter (17) was shoulder-checked hard and intentionally by a coworker (30s) who was upset with her. She told her managers but nothing was done.
