To properly answer any legal question it is necessary to ascertain more information. It is like asking a doctor over the phone what your pain in the stomach is about and whether he could cure it. The Doc needs to get a more complete history, lab work and X-rays etc.

I would strongly suggest you write out a detailed summary of the facts including your name, address, email and the relevant facts. Every lawyer you talk to will need the same information to intelligently answer your inquiry....

Anthony Marvin Avery's answer
You have made a serious mistake. The Court tried to not destroy your life with some type of Diversion, but you violated it. It is very possible a large amount of the 11/29 Sentence you pled to will now be ordered served, anywhere from 30 to 90 days at least. Contact your attorney and tell him how you think you violated Probation and pay the entirety of your Court Costs and Fines prior to the 14th. That way the Court and the Probation Officer might want to give you another chance.

Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer
Who else signed the order? Was it a magistrate or judge pro tempore (they are able to sign orders)? More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself. You can read more about me, my credentials, awards, honors, testimonials, and media appearances/ publications on my law practice website, www.AliEsq.com. I practice law in CA, NY, MA, WA, and DC in the following areas of law: Business &...

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law, Federal Crimes, Personal Injury and Civil Litigation for Florida on
Answered on Feb 4, 2019
Charles M. Baron's answer
Your inquiry is very vague. Sounds like you filed a Section 1983 civil rights suit while incarcerated complaining of lack of medical attention, which is a valid ground for suit under certain circumstances - but it's hard to tell from your inquiry whether it's ongoing, or a judgment was entered against you. In any event, for this type of case, you need to consult a civil rights attorney, or in the alternative, contact the Florida Justice Institute in Miami, (888)358- 2081, or the Human Rights...

Q: if I'm arrested and not read my miranda rights can the court still convict me?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law and Federal Crimes for Tennessee on
Answered on Feb 1, 2019
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer
Yes if they have sufficient Evidence to present to the Court outside of what you verbally told the Officers. The Miranda Case only concerns Testimonial Evidence you give against yourself, not any other Evidence.

I have no idea what the Waiver is that you are talking about. That is not a Statute in Tennessee, but it might be a City/County Ordinance or a Local Court Rule. You should hire a competent attorney now.

Q: During a drug raid, can anything I say be brought up in court?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law and Federal Crimes for Indiana on
Answered on Feb 1, 2019
Mark Broughton's answer
That's a complicated question. If you make spontaneous statements with no questioning by law enforcement, yes, those can be admitted as evidence. If, however, you are "in-custody" (term of art), and you are questioned by law enforcement you must give a knowing and intelligent waiver of your rights; this is usually done by reading you your so-called Miranda rights prior to questioning. So there are no easy answers and each statement/case depends on the particular facts and circumstances. These...

Juliet Piccone's answer
This is not the type of question that can be answered without more information. I would highly recommend that you contact an attorney who handles these matters on a regular basis. In general, when a disabled person is incarcerated the police can impound service dogs unless the disabled person's condition absolutely cannot be ameliorated by other means, for example a person or medication that the jail would have to supply. Every jurisdiction is different as far as what notice needs to be...
