There is a time and a place to bring witnesses. The prosecutor does not have a say in it. Witnesses are normally not called unless a contested motion or trial is scheduled. A prosecutor may say it is not a hearing in which witnesses would be heard. For example, if the hearing is an arraignment...Read more »
She was working & living with a friend, her legal guardian which is her older sister. doesn’t want her back home because they had an argument about her 16 year old sister crushing on her older sister boyfriend ( Which isn’t true ) she’s just insecure because the younger sister is... Read more »
I would like to answer your question, but the way it is put does not compute. If the guardian put her out, it makes no sense that she would file run away charges to get her back. It may be that you do not know the whole story, but only your cousin's explanation. Since she is considered a...Read more »
What are the chances of him being revoked, when he should have been off parole 8 months ago, but is still on paper due to owing restitution? He has a great payment history and hasn't given p&p any trouble, completely compliant. He was associating with a felon that ended in some trouble (he... Read more »
As long as he continues to pay his restitution, he should be fine. If the probation officer asks, he will need to be be forthright and truthful; however, I would not volunteer that information unless or until he is charged with something.

You have the right to use deadly force to protect yourself and others. You have the right to use reasonable force to protect your property. And, most importantly, don’t shoot them in the back if they are running away.
The person being charged was threatened death and then hit with a belt across the back, they responded by hitting the other with a hammer to the head (was on neither persons property, both were men in early 60s with same height and weight of 200lbs)
It occured on neither of their properties, and the person with a hammer didn't provoke them at all. The belt-wielding man came with the belts in hand ready to use, with many (realistic) death threats. The second man only pulled out the hammer after being hit. (they didn't bring it for...

My daughter and a friend of hers decide to make a poor choice and vandalized a house,and old barn. What could happen to them if someone had video tapes and pull it. They are 17 and 15 what would the worst thing to happen to them and what do I need to do
It would depend on the amount of damage and the criminal charges levied. Juveniles that commit higher felonies can be tried as adults. I doubt this would be one of those cases. My guess, and it is only a guess, is that if they are first time offenders they may be looking at some detention but...Read more »
