No question stated here, but presumably the thought is "what can be done?" It's time to get a good criminal defense attorney, with drug case experience, on board. From the description, it may be that a pretrial motion attacking search and seizure should be considered, after all...Read more »
I have a criminal history, but I have been out of that lifestyle for almost 5 years and the cop also acknowledged that before he asked me to do this. Again, I was only pulled over for driving without a license. I'm not on probation and I had nothing illegal on me. So I told him I would think... Read more »
That’s impossible to answer without more information. Second degree murder would generally carry a significant prison sentence even with no prior criminal history. He is not going to get a positive outcome without an experienced, dedicated attorney. He needs an attorney ASAP.
An individual is not entitled to credit in such a circumstance. The case law is very clear that the alternative to jail that provides jail credit has to be "the functional equivalent" of being in custody. The typical circumstances wherein someone might get such credit would be in a...Read more »

This is information you should communicate to your public defender so that they can draft and file a motion to withdraw your plea. If you are unhappy with your public defender, you should hire a private attorney.
I am in Minneapolis, MN on 2 years of probation for a DUI first offense, BAC over 0.16. Part of my probation agreement is no alcohol use. I failed an ignition interlock test 1 year into probation, and this is the first fail. I was not locked out of the device and able to start itlater. Ignition... Read more »
That is not necessarily something that will be reported to probation. However, probation might become aware that your interlock obligation was extended and would also likely become aware if your limited license was suspended due to continuing violations of the ignition interlock obligations.
That would depend upon several facts not stated in the question. For example, a person may or may not be in lawful possession of a firearm. If not lawfully possessed, the person could be charged with an unlawful possession crime regardless of any self-defense issues. Assuming a person was in...Read more »

I was selling my birds. A lady contacted me to purchase them, and proved she would not care for them right. I told her no, and kept looking.

Unfortunately a mental health diagnosis is not a defense to prima facie criminal liability under the law. And for those who get a "not guilty by means of mental illness" disposition on their criminal record, will get reviewed in civil commitment court for possible civil commitment. But...Read more »
It takes sometime for an individual to be booked and for that information to appear online. I would assume that your friend is in the county jail where the alleged murder occurred. He or she will be held for a court date and then conditions of release such as bail will be set.
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 »
