There could be numerous criminal charges generated by such a scenario. If you know who the defendant is, tell him to not talk to anyone and hire a competent attorney immediately. An insurance company may need to be notified by your attorney.
I went to the hospital, I was not charged or arrested, yet, I did not have anything on me, keys were not in ignition. Overdose was for opiates(fentanyl). Will a probation office be contacted? Should I get a lawyer? How do I know if they will decide to prosecute or not? Probation is for reckless... Read more »
If no criminal charges were made, then probably no violation has occurred. It is possible the State will learn of violating your Probation Order, but stay away from drugs, work, and you will probably be alright for the next 11/29.
I have filed an appeal but because I was unable to afford an attorney I was forced to represent myself and since I didn't know what I was doing the judge ruled for Tennessee to keep it. I have the option now to ask for a stay and file another appeal to thebest of my understanding. If anyone... Read more »
If it was a Drug Forfeiture Warrant, then you must immediately demand a DOS Hearing and post Bond. But if it was seized as evidence, then the State has it and you will not get it back until the Criminal Court Judge orders it, upon Motion.
If the Misdemeanor Charges are Dismissed and Expunged, noone is going to know about the arrests/charges in first place. Those are not Convictions. Further they would have nothing to do with a new drug Charge. But drug Charges are usually Felonies anyway, as rarely do LEO's charge for...Read more »
That would probably be around 8 years, at least 35 percent. The Judge could definitely sentence you to at least 12 years. However without any other facts, I cannot be any more specific. You need to ask your attorney who apparently is working out a plea for you. The firearm charge is either 3...Read more »
Not sure of the question, but anyone suspected of supplying drugs to a victim can be charged with homicide. The actual drug causing death would be a defense possibly. That defense does not keep a DA from going after anyone involved in the drug transaction, but might be used at Trial.
The Charge is probably Domestic Assault. A conviction means you cannot touch a firearm or ammunition. Without fail hire a competent attorney to get the Charge Diverted, Dismissed and Expunged. The end result is what counts, not whether you are guilty or not.
You might check to see if there is an Estate to file a Claim against. Otherwise, you might call the DA and see if there are any remaining paid in funds to receive. Finally you may check to see if the Defendant had assets which would justify a suit for Damages, if within the SOL.
Not sure of your question, which really ought to be addressed to your lawyer. If no Probation then you must be serving 3 years in the Penitentiary. Your Range status is not mentioned which is critical. Most important does the State have enough evidence to convict you? Do not be making...Read more »

You have not stated the asserted reason for the stop. Motion to Suppress may be in order. You will need a competent attorney to prepare for the Preliminary Hearing, the Suppression Motion and possibly Trial.
No, they cannot be made of record. Posted signs need to be completely filled out with the name and address of the owner. Be careful displaying firearms when confronting trespassers. Call the law and do not give them an opportunity to claim you assaulted them.
My son was found guilty in one case and has been sentenced. He has another case in which a plea deal has been offered but he has to make parole for the first sentence and then complete the second. Can this sentences not run together?
Different criminal convictions can have the sentences run concurrently. But it is very difficult to get all the DA's and Judges to so agree, which needs to be specifically stated in all the Judgments of Convictions. Usually they will not agree and the sentences run consecutively. If all...Read more »
