It really depends where on the docket you are looking, but case captions are generally limited to one name. So you'll often see USA v. John Doe, et al. The et al. stands for everyone else. Some cases have lots of defendants and it would make things awfully cumbersome if they all had to be...Read more »
The Statute of Limitations (SoL) controls when the state has to file the charges. So from the offense date to the filing date cannot be more than 5 years on most felonies. Therefore, if you were charged within the 5 years, but have not gone to court the SoL will not terminate the charges....Read more »
If a person is claiming insanity, they must file a notice with the court, long before trial. In Indiana there is a specific statute for defenses and when they must be filed. If the court agrees there is a basis for the assertion of insanity, the court will appoint 2 to 3 independent psychologists,...Read more »
I worked for a construction company as the sales rep and on site manager to make sure jobs were done. I bid jobs, accepted check payments from customers made to the business and over saw the jobs get done. My boss is a crook, his customers are suing us both. I had no legal tie to the bank acct nor...

YES, that happens quite regularly. It is not the best police work, however, people refuse to speak to officers/detectives all the time so many times charges go over to the prosecutor without an interview. Also, you refused to speak with him the first time and he likely believed that would be the...Read more »
Kick in my dad's house, handcuff and hold at gun point my little brother and go through all my father's residence, property and garages. My buddy's house is kicked in and searched and my house is doors rammed off the hinges and completely tossed upside down to the point of... Read more »
In Indiana Theft is now a class a misdemeanor unless the value is over $750 then it would be a level 6 felony. However, if the offense took place under the old law, offense prior to 2014, where theft is a class D felony then the $750 threshold does not apply.
NO, He has been driving on a SUSPENDED license for 10 years. Had multiple vehicular accidents, has MANY FTA's. No, he was NOT drunk or stoned. What does that have to do with him hitting a HUMAN BEING, only stopping because there was a witness, or I would be DEAD. He was looking at a REAL... Read more »
Previously you did not mention he failed to remain at the scene and was driving away but for a person stopping him. That fact would support a charge of leaving the scene of an accident as a misdemeanor. If your injures are within the definition of moderate or serious bodily injury the charges can...Read more »
1. Car was driven by a person with a SUSPENDED (for 10 years) LICENSE
2. Woman who came to scene to get car provided (and DELIBERATELY) FALSE DOCUMENTATION.....RE......INSURANCE expired NOVEMBER 05, 2020, and that she was his wife......she is married to someone else to the POLICE OFFICER
There needs to be more facts to answer your question accurately. Did the driver deliberately hit the person? Was he drunk/stoned? Was the suspension a result of an offense or infraction? If it was an accident only then there would be no criminal charges for driving while suspended. However, if...Read more »
I don't know what you mean by "brandishing", but it would take far more than that to justify use of deadly force against that person. Keep in mind that there IS a right to bear arms, both for you and the other person. You can't just shoot people because they are armed.
She was doing good no new charges had a failed screen they wanted her to go to a rehab again and she decided to leave town. She has about 5 months left on parole and just wants to be done so she left. I'm just wondering if she will still be able to get off parole like she was originally going... Read more »
If she has a violation of parole for a drug test and then chose to leave town without permission, she will have another violation and it is most likely she will have a warrant for her arrest. The longer she waits the worse it will get for her.
I was sentenced to 258 days of probation on feb 10th they violated my probation in March and modified it in June of 2020. Now they violated me again in March 2021 but my probation should be over if they extended it I. Didn’t know and I never seen paper work or signed anything saying it was... Read more »
When a probation revocation is filed it tolls the time of probation running thereby extending your probation. So when you were violated in March 2020 and it was then modified in June of 2020, if I have the facts correct then most likely your time was tolled while the revocation pended from March...Read more »
And are Both on the lease. Her 18 son was staying there until the ex kicked him out. She went back today to get her some things and the ex thought her son was with her so he took his loaded gun and went outside and fired 4 shots at the jeep thinking her son was in there but he wasn't. Her... Read more »
That would be a question for the officers who responded to the scene or their superiors. If he admitted to shooting the gun, they saw the gun and there was evidence of gun shots in the jeep, other witnesses who observed him shoot, the officers could have made an arrest. If those facts are...Read more »
"Possession" means that something is "within your scope of control." It has nothing to do with "ownership." Drug laws intentionally make NO DISTINCTION between possession and ownership because it is contraband - illegal to have it - irrespective of whether it belongs...Read more »
