I think the only way to know for certain is to have the restraining order reviewed. Remember you always have the ability to contact the police if he is contacting you and has a history with you bad enough that required a PPO. Reminding the police there is a PPO in place might also help them tailor...Read more »
I was seeing this girl for a short while and then I broke up with her. At the end of November, I found out she was pregnant and was genuinely scared about it. I hadn’t talked to this girl since December of 2020. I had my friend and girlfriend contact her about it and all was... Read more »
Would probation or court be notified by TSA or airport? Would they only find out if I have police contact in Florida? I know it would be a bad idea so that’s not the answer I’m looking for. I’m wondering about the method of enforcing travel and ability to travel as a probationer. I don’t... Read more »
TSA would be checking your identity primarily through NCIC, and of course against other unknown "no fly" lists. You would be detained at the airport if you are wanted, your credentials are sketchy, or you otherwise cause problems in the airport or on the plane. That's how your...Read more »
No, unless the person goes through the process of having his or her "gun rights" restored. It is possible, but requires a 5 year waiting period and petition to the court. Until a person does that, it is a crime in itself for a felon to be in possession of any firearm.
Pulled over for the lights being off, asked to step out of the car within 30 seconds for driving without a license. Searched the car and found a firearm, sat for about 40 minutes then detained both parties.
Maximum penalty is 5 years in prison. Depending on circumstances and your history - you say this is your first felony - it's likely to be probation or a short jail period, plus fines, costs, and forfeiture of weapon.
Like any crime, there are defenses available. And too, the search of...Read more »
2 years? It's entirely plausible for the FBI or any of the other "3-letter organizations" to reach out to you and let you know you are a target of investigation to secure your cooperation. There are also a lot of scams out there.
Do you have reason to believe you would be...Read more »
My associate handles both of these areas. You can contact me for further information if you wish, or you could probably find someone else the easiest by searching for an attorney that runs a general practice.
My fiance is in jail in Michigan for a crime committed there. He's in the COVID quarantine pod and has missed his probable cause hearing twice, another man in the pod missed his 5 times, although he's no longer positive for COVID. Is this a violation of his right to a speedy trial?
Are you talking about pick-up ranges on warrants? Often times, when someone has a warrant, there will be a pick-up range listed. For instance, a warrant out of Kent County might say "we'll pick up within 100 miles from Kent county. That range depends on what the warrant is for (e.g. what...Read more »
This person is 20 years old, and wanted from another state. They want to get their life together but need to turn themselves in. They want to, but do not want to have to go back to the state the charges are in due to some issues. Such as they were molested by a sibling and they don’t want to live... Read more »
What is your question? If you are aware of a PPO or have been served with one, you should act to respond appropriately to the allegations. If it's from out of state, you will likely need to hire an attorney in that state.
He is currently awaiting trial and had been for 2 years. His original trial date was set for 4/2020 before it was canceled because of Covid. He is still awaiting and serving dead time for over 2 years now. It seems that the court system is scheduling trials for individuals that committed the... Read more »
Assuming it's small court...no attorneys are allowed. You'll have a hearing - maybe with a judge / probably a magistrate or referee, depending on how that particular court is structured. From there, it will look a lot like what you may see on those judge TV shows (without the drama and...Read more »
How does any of this relate to what, presumably, is a case against you? The problem when people start saying "so-and-so committed perjury / lied / etc.", is that you have to prove it. No court is going to make a conclusion based on a bare-bones assertion that someone lied or some false...Read more »
