The police have told me I would be charged with theft and other citations waiting in mail due to running from police but there is no title for the quad at least in his name and he’s saying I stole it . Could I be charged with theft?
Sure. They can charge you with theft if they have probable cause to believe that you took the vehicle without permission. Your flight could also be used against you as "consciousness of guilt." I am confused by yiur question about title... are you saying they stild the vehicle??...Read more »
Depends on what you mean by "doesnt have a title." Importantly, unless they are a police offixer they cant charge you with a crime, they can accuse you and the police can charge you. This is an important distinction because they are just witnesses in the case. Most people who are...Read more »
Call the police. Outside of that you can petition the DA to charge the matter. You, as a non lae enforcement entity cannot "press" charges on someone. Call the police or oerhaps talk to a civil attorney about suing them.
The right to remain silent, the right to an attorney, if he cant afford one one will be provided. As he is a juvenile they are often routed to the public defender's office. He has the right to a trial where he can assert potential defenses (abandoned property and possibly others) and all of...Read more »
Means you still owe money. So in lieu of continuing to supervise you they referred your case to a collections agency. Can damage your credit and if you dont pay they can move to hold you in contempt but you wont have a PO looking over your shoulder.
I am not sure how. No contact, as a condition of bail or otherwise means that if either of you did the other could report you. If its a condition of bail it could lead to bail being revoked. If its an order of court one or both could be held in contempt.
Even though I only allowed one email to be forwarded, when he took my phone to put his email in he forwarded himself the whole conversation without my permission and without a warrent. Will that hold up in court. My worry is they will say I allowed all emails to be sent which is not true because... Read more »
Law enforcement has never had proof of physical drugs but they have messages that I bought them. Will that alone in court be able to convict me of possession? Messages were only to buy never sell or intent to sell.
It depends what you are charged with. If you are charged with possession, possibly no. Of you are charged with attempt or conspiracy, then maybe. Talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney who can examine your case to see of there is a defense. Good luck!
I went to a rehabilitation center to seek help for my alcoholism. I was there for 30 days. Their policy required patients to turn in all of their personal belongings (phone, wallets, etc) except for clothing. During my stay, one of their staff members stole my credit card and ID and committed... Read more »
A Pennsylvania attorney could answer best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, it does not appear to be a case that attorneys might consider taking on a contingency basis. If you are paying by the hour, the burden is upon you to provide evidence of the theft. In a busy...Read more »
There are dozens of forms on that website and each one has detailed instructions. Without knowing what form you are referring to or what the purpose is of the form, it’s not possible to say which box should be checked.
You have courage to undertake such a difficult project. There are very knowledgeable Pennsylvania criminal defense - appeal attorneys here who are really the ones with insight into this, and they could give the best direction. But your post remains open for four days, and some law offices might be...Read more »
I just maxed a 3 to 6 year sentence a judge gave me. I was originally sentenced to 3 to 12 months in the county and 3 years probation. I had no new charges, yet the judge resentenced me and added more time on to my sentence making me have to do 6 years instead of 3. I had tech violations but it... Read more »
From your location this is an Ohio question, which I am not qualified to answer. However, if this is a Pennsylvania question the answer is that if probation is revoked you can be resentenced to anything that was originally allowable. Its an important differentiation between probation and parole....Read more »
But he got caught pleaded guilty I was given a court date but then covid-19 happened. In the meantime they must have ran his picture through other videos and found him three more times in another Walmart.

Regrettfully, there is no way to answer your question of whether or not he is going to jail. The reason most people recommend talking to a lawyer is because there are several factors that go into setting bail. The severity and number of charges is one. Prior history is another. Family support...Read more »

Stangulation is a felony and he could face substantial jail time if convicted. Get a lawyer asap. If he can't afford one, apply for the Public Defender. If the victim does not want to prosecute, that will help, but that doesnt mean the case automatically goes away. Get a good lawyer and quickly!
Even though she was the one who sent the photos to him at the time and he was on the wrong for sending them out but they are both minors so what would be the penalty for them and for some reason he hasn’t gotten a call or anything from the policeman that was supposed to call him and it’s been 5...

More details are needed to analyze your situation. Were you injured in the accident? Did you and your employer discuss filing a workers' compensation claim before you were terminated? It is unlawful for your employer to terminate your employment because you pursued a workers'...Read more »
Unfortunately, no. Felonies cannot be "sealed" at all under Pennsylvania's fairly-recent Clean Slate Act - and you cannot expunge a felony conviction until you're 70 years old *and* have had a 10-year period subsequent to that conviction without any arrests.
