Timothy Denison's answer It’s impossible to say whether you could’ve beaten the charges without a thorough review of the file. However, now that you’ve pled guilty, it’s unlikely that the cour will set aside that plea.
Timothy Denison's answer Reasonable I’d determined the the facts and circumstances surrounding the issue. It could be 30, 60, even 90 days. Bottom line, if you refund the money, they will likely dismiss the charge.
Timothy Denison's answer Call the lawyer and ask for an appointment to meet to discuss the matter. Be sure the inmate has given the lawyer permission to speak with you or he won’t be able to discuss the case with you.
Timothy Denison's answer If you’re referring to the existing phone system in most jails, all those calls are recorded. If they recorded you on that system, you’re probably out of luck bc tecording notices are posted everywhere. If you are referring to some other telephone system or recording, further information is necessary to determine whether or not you have a case.
Timothy Denison's answer Bottom line, visiting an inmate is a privilege, not a right, and corrections has pretty wide latitude in enforcing their rules and regs. There’s no real good end in a case like this, bc there’s no money and no damages. Although you won’t like this answer, safest route is dressing like it church on Sunday so they don’t cut off your visitation on a whim.
