Q: Fist question is can an arrest warrant still be legal if the case which it is about is closed out

Q: The police officer who arrested me was later found to be corrupt. Can I get this case overturned.
Leland Hulbert
Leland Hulbert answered on Jan 11, 2022

It depends what happened on your case. If there is any evidence of corruption that led to a jury finding you guilty there is a chance you can file a motion to have it overturned. If you voluntarily pled guilty it would be more difficult for you to now get out of that plea.

Q: Does drug court make it easier for shock probation?

The judge revoked this person’s probation but stated the lawyer can file a motion for shock after 30 days. The judge also sent paper work over for this person to be evaluated for drug court, does that mean the judge is considering shock?

Possibly. If he goes to drug court, he has a chance to stay out of jail.

Technically it could be considered criminal trespass in the third degree if there are clear signs that this is private property or that you are in a housing development or section 8. If you were not charged by the police you likely don’t have anything to worry about.

Q: Can I press charges on a 14 year old boy for pushing his thumb in my 12 year old sons throat ?

My son almost past out from the pressure of the other boys thumb on his throat.

You can contact the police. Assaults between juveniles are still against the law but it will likely be driven by the injury to your child. Was he take him to the doctor? Are there pictures of injuries?
