A extradition waiver today. He was up for parole in July. So what I'm asking is first can they put another charge on him after he has already done his time in Alabama ? Second will the time he has served in Mississippi count for time served in Alabama? Thank u

He needs to see about trying to contact a private criminal defense lawyer or get with his public defender. Some lawyers, such as myself, work with their clients to figure out a payment plan to cover fees and expenses; however, your brother will need to contact the attorney.

I was made to sign a 5000 dollar felony bond for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute because I wrote a statement saying it was more then 25 grams before I was arrested for possession of marijuana
I was facing 4 years in jail and requested a jury trial in justice court. The judge denied my request. The law states I “may demand” a jury trial. Please review the code 99-33-9 and help me understand whether or not my constitutional right to a trial was violated?
He was on his knees hands in air when the officer walked up shot him close range in the back the passenger seen it all . Now trying to bring up past felony flee charges and charge him as habitual offender. He has been locked up 2yrs no court
