Where would I find my federal charges
answered on Nov 7, 2022
Federal cases do not appear on case.net. The Federal Court System as a website where court filings maybe found. https://pacer.uscourts.gov/

No one here know the facts, the evidence, and how testimony will be viewed. Until a jury renders a guilty verdict and it is upheld on appeal, anyone can theoretically beat any charge.
there was a call for domestic violence my friend went to jail and subsequently bonded out and there was a no contact order in place, he then got married to the alleged victim and now he's being held without bond due to the no contact order being violated

I am sorry but I only practice family law. Your question is a criminal law question. Despite the fact that your friend married the victim, whenever you have a question related to someone being sent to jail, and a bond, it is criminal law, not family law. The only exception would be... Read more »

It is common in some courts (especially St. Louis County Circuit Court), for it to take several months for a traffic ticket to get filed and a court date to be assigned. You can hire an attorney to get your tickets amended to non-moving, no-point infractions. You won't have to appear in court.... Read more »

At your initial appearance before a judge, the judge is required to appoint a lawyer for you if a conviction for the offense you are charged with would probably result in confinement and if you are shown to be indigent (i.e. unable to hire your own counsel).

That’s terrible. Hire an attorney to seek to have that information not appear on Casenet. I don’t know why a judge would not grant a motion to seal or raise the security level of such filings.
Wasn't arrested or detained out even questioned about it.
