Family members got guardianship? Woyld you not be aware of criminal proceedings and would you get a care taker without your permission or your say so to whom it may be. Could law keep threatening daily with warrants and family
This question is incredibly confusing. It's unclear what is being asked. Criminal charges and a guardianship are two entirely different things and are unrelated to each other. A warrant could certainly be issued if you missed a court hearing on a criminal matter, but that has nothing to do...Read more »
If I am convicted in CA state court, then after I've been sentenced to 4 yrs in prison, but before I've began to serve this sentence the judge lets me out on bond pending appeal. While out on bond pending appeal I'm arrested for a federal offense, convicted and sentenced for said... Read more »
This is a question best asked and answered in a California criminal law forum. But concurrent vs. consecutive is usually determined by the second court that sentences you. The bigger issue that you will run into is how California determines credit. For example, if this happened in Minnesota with...Read more »
You ask this question in a Minnesota forum. Minnesota does not utilize the death penalty so I'm not sure if you are asking this question or nationally or otherwise. The NGRI (not guilty by reason of insanity) defense standards vary state to state. Minnesota uses the M'Naghten standard.
I was arrested for suspicion of DWI after being pulled over for a third brakelite being out. Can the police use incriminating evidence found only after the search incident to arrest? I would think they would had to have the search warrant prior to arresting me or at the very least the probable... Read more »
Of course they can. There is no obligation that law enforcement ignore evidence developed before the search incident to arrest. The probable cause basis for the arrest can differ from the probable cause to support a warrant application to get a search warrant for a blood draw. I am assuming that...Read more »
A Pardon is no admission of guilt. The person pardoned is not making a statement. The President (or Governor, state pardons board) is making the statement with a Pardon. However, most pardons happen after a conviction, which would either result from a guilty plea (admission of guilt) or a...Read more »
I want to pursue a career in healthcare, but that misdemeanor theft from 2015 is holding me back. I gotta get it expunged. But I also have a misdemeanor driving without my seatbelt less than two years ago. It'll be two years ago in June. But I don't think the seatbelt ticket will hinder... Read more »
You need to pursue an expungement. There are no guarantees that it will be granted, but you don’t have much to lose. The alternative is waiting til June which doesn’t make sense, particularly if it might be granted now.
My ex violated the ofp and danco Hes in jail and keeps calling me and sending me mail but he sends it to tbe lady above me. So do just call the jail to report it or do u need to call the police as well
I was in an accident due to a failure to yield left and they found me at fault for the accident. I was told by the officer in charge that I would be able to pay my citation and plead guilty for the charge, but now it says I have a mandatory court appearance. It is a misdemeanor for crim/traffic and... Read more »
If the officer checks the "property damage or injury" box on the citation, the court appearance becomes mandatory. That means failure to appear will result in an arrest warrant. A misdemeanor is a crime punishable by a maximum of 90 days jail, though jail is rare in cases like this....Read more »
I doubt the police would do anything, but you could report them stolen if you did not consent to them being taken. Be prepared for the police to tell you that it is a civil matter they won't assist with.
I am wondering about how courts are dealing with this COVID mess and the required hours for community service. Instead of doing Sentence-to-serve, I have been approved to do community service but have been having a difficult time fulfilling my hours. My deadline has already been pushed back twice... Read more »
I would expect that a probation and a judge would give extensions for this reason, but in the end would require the time to be served in jail. After all, community service is considered a jail substitute by the courts. Therefore, if it were me, I'd simply find a way to get the hours done....Read more »
the judge used a dead person as a witness in a criminal domestic trial is that lawful and also I thought they have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt they took hearsay of my baby mom and the doctor said there were no signs of strangulation the police said the something and she also contradicted...

There is no way to answer this question given the information in this question. I understand that this is your recitation of what occurred in the trial. I presume that the county attorney would view things much differently. The only way to assess the legitimacy of your conviction would be to...Read more »
I am being told you can and I am being told you can't from 2 different people. One is saying Minnesota doesnt have castle law or stand your ground law so you have to flee first. The other is saying you can just pull out gun and kill the person without trying to flee.
Minnesota has a version of the castle doctrine. Under State law a person has no duty to retreat from their own home and is allowed to use deadly force, including shooting an intruder, to prevent a felony from occurring within the home.
