Officer randomly got behind me and cut on lights. After trying to figure out his intentions knowing I did nothing wrong I got scared and took off but once reality began to sink in I pulled over and stopped. He got me out of the car but never said why he was trying to stop me. No body was hurt and... Read more »
It really depends. Since you said grand jury, that would mean that they are treating this as a felony, which means that they are alleging that you drove in a dangerous manner. If that is the case, you are looking at a max of 5 years in MDOC custody and a $5k fine. That being said, I'd be curious to...Read more »
As a convicted felon, Mississippi law does not allow you to possess a firearm or any other type of deadly weapon. That being said, depending on the age of the conviction, as well as other factors, you may be able to get a certificate of rehabilitation, which would allow you to possess a firearm;...Read more »

She tried to have a sit down with the parents of the boys which turned into her physically harming one of the boys. She now has court December 3rd. We do not... Read more »
She needs to get a lawyer ASAP. Even though her response was understandable given her background, they will likely try to go after her for either simple assault or aggravated assault. Ideally, it would end up being a simple assault charge, as that is a misdemeanor, but without more information, it...Read more »

So it does not feel right... Read more »
She's Stage 5 manic bipolar with doctors records. She was arrested at the beginning of last year for forging and "cashing" 5 oxy scripts, and shes been indicted. She since has gotten on suboxone and moved to Louisiana in with me, and held a couple jobs, more than before. She has a decent moral... Read more »
It really depends on how exactly she was indicted, and under what particular statute. You should consider getting with a criminal defense attorney so that you can discuss more of the facts and circumstances of her case. Feel free to reach out to any attorney on here by clicking the contact...Read more »
I am 100 % sure that no DA was present and no grand jury convened. An MBN agent serves as a do it yourself indictment dictator. They handed out 71 in one day..its about scaring people to a plea, then getting a conviction. They give probation and county gets the money. This has happened 100 if not... Read more »
You need to consider talking with an attorney sooner rather than later, as the next step will be setting up a trial. Most attorneys on here, myself included, are willing to provide a free consultation to discuss your case, at the very least to point you in the right direction.

For example, in MS I can carry in a church or school with the Instructor Certification. If a place has signage prohibiting carry, I can only be charged with trespass not a firearms charge. Is AR the same?
He was basically railroaded. He was a teenager when he was taken away. At first he had an court appointed attorney but we hired an attorney and the court would not allow my brother his attorney but rather the courts attorney. The attorney told my brother who was at the time a teenager that the... Read more »
There is no way to actually be sure, without knowing the detailed facts of your case. Sometimes, they are transferred to one state from another when there is a pending action against them in the other state. It could be that he was transferred to MS because he has a pending felony case, perhaps in...Read more »
You would likely need to speak to attorney to clarify what exactly you are asking. During the conversation, the attorney will likely ask you certain questions, like whether the case went to trial or your BF pleaded to the underlying felony.
It depends on the facts of your case, and the reasons behind the search and taking the child away. You will likely need to consult with an attorney to gather more facts and determine whether you have a viable claim.
It depends on the facts of your case, and what reasons that DHS and law enforcement may have had for conducting the search and taking the child. Likely you will need to consult with an attorney so that they can find out more about your case and determine whether you have a viable claim.
I sold the vehicle about 6 months ago but received a message today he financed it. He said the finance sent it to the bank but the check is in my name. He wants me to cash it for him. What does this mean for me? I was unaware of this till I received the message asking me to cash it for him.
My husband is one of the true innocent. We have filed 2 post convictions and a habeus corpus over the years. The last was turned down because of procedural bars.He has been in for over 19 years.. Another question..Is there any way to have his sentence changed ?
First I applaud you for your effort not to give up. There are a couple of post conviction remedies such as a 2241 and a 2252 action. Both take time to get the information and can be a longshot. However, all cases deserve review. I am not sure if your husband pled guilty or had a trial. that...Read more »
