Civil forfeiture is generally a separate proceeding if you're contesting it - but if they outright stole your money and are wondering what will happen the real answer is nothing unless you do something about it. What would you do? Likely ask the BCI to open up an investigation.
For no reason I was charged he was not how is this possible
answered on Feb 10, 2023
It's possible because prosecutors simply go with the story they want to believe. You need an attorney to defend you and be willing to take it to a trial if it is in your best interests.

Not enough information, an attorney needs to see the totality of the evidence to determine if a motion may be filed.

Maybe. This is too detailed of a question for an attorney to answer without having first seen the evidence in the case.

You likely need the squad car video to determine if there was an illegal search and seizure under the US Constitution. Even if there was, you cannot simply orally tell the judge about the issue - you have to make a motion, which is difficult to do if you're not an attorney.

If the judge ordered it, then yes. However, you have the right to a bond review hearing.

A public because the court is under the impression that I make too much money. I am currently unemployed and have been for about a month. What advice do you guys have for me?

I have a million pieces of advice because I take 10+ calls like yours every day. Firstly, most people would prefer a private attorney over a public defender and I hope you don't learn that reality the hard way. Secondly, if this case is in North Dakota and you were denied a public defender by... Read more »

Should I have to finish my original sentence or is the court allowed to throw out the first sentence except for the fines and re sentence me for the same crimes??
answered on Jun 10, 2020
Revocation on a charge can certainly occur due to a conviction on a new charge. However, a criminal defense lawyer would usually negotiate out a deal on the revocation that runs along with the new charge. Revocation is not required to be up to the original maximum but certainly can be.

Yes - but not in a good way. The judge will kick your dates back because you're not there, likely hold you in contempt and revoke you on anything outstanding, and you may be charged with additional crimes for absconding. I've helped a good number of people figure out their court date... Read more »
I plead guilty on a charge because I was told that the record would be sealed after two years of probation. I should have fought it, but it was cheaper and easier to plead than to fight it.

North Dakota does not say "five years and we treat it like it never happened." Instead, North Dakota has a period in which you can petition to seal your record. If you received a deferred imposition of sentence (which would seal it after probation) and it was never sealed, then petition... Read more »
