That would probably be around 8 years, at least 35 percent. The Judge could definitely sentence you to at least 12 years. However without any other facts, I cannot be any more specific. You need to ask your attorney who apparently is working out a plea for you. The firearm charge is either 3...Read more »
Not sure of the question, but anyone suspected of supplying drugs to a victim can be charged with homicide. The actual drug causing death would be a defense possibly. That defense does not keep a DA from going after anyone involved in the drug transaction, but might be used at Trial.
The Charge is probably Domestic Assault. A conviction means you cannot touch a firearm or ammunition. Without fail hire a competent attorney to get the Charge Diverted, Dismissed and Expunged. The end result is what counts, not whether you are guilty or not.
You might check to see if there is an Estate to file a Claim against. Otherwise, you might call the DA and see if there are any remaining paid in funds to receive. Finally you may check to see if the Defendant had assets which would justify a suit for Damages, if within the SOL.
Not sure of your question, which really ought to be addressed to your lawyer. If no Probation then you must be serving 3 years in the Penitentiary. Your Range status is not mentioned which is critical. Most important does the State have enough evidence to convict you? Do not be making...Read more »

You have not stated the asserted reason for the stop. Motion to Suppress may be in order. You will need a competent attorney to prepare for the Preliminary Hearing, the Suppression Motion and possibly Trial.
No, they cannot be made of record. Posted signs need to be completely filled out with the name and address of the owner. Be careful displaying firearms when confronting trespassers. Call the law and do not give them an opportunity to claim you assaulted them.
My son was found guilty in one case and has been sentenced. He has another case in which a plea deal has been offered but he has to make parole for the first sentence and then complete the second. Can this sentences not run together?
Different criminal convictions can have the sentences run concurrently. But it is very difficult to get all the DA's and Judges to so agree, which needs to be specifically stated in all the Judgments of Convictions. Usually they will not agree and the sentences run consecutively. If all...Read more »

The account holder will be getting a charge from the Bank. But if you take out more money than you were authorized by the account holder, then that is Theft of Property, which could be a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the amount stolen. You could also be sued by the account holder.

That should be at least one C Felony. The Reckless Endangerment can be a misdemeanor or felony. It may have been an illegal stop, for which suppression motions are made. But his speeding will probably be the reason now for the stop. He needs an attorney to prepare for a Preliminary Hearin....Read more »
Apparently you have not been charged with a crime at this time. So no, no Court yet. That money will be subject to some type of Forfeiture, and if you want it back, then a Claim filing and a Court Hearing will be necessary.
I think you mean Parole Eligibility Date. And no, that is the first time the Inmate is eligible for a Parole Hearing. If he is in a County Jail, the foregoing does not apply and it will be something peculiar to that TN Judge's Sentencing.
That charge is worse than some felonies. You need to check with the Court Clerk and examine the actual Warrant. Look at the Disposition by the Judge. If it is a conviction, it will be permanent. If it was dismissed, expunge it. Good Luck !!!
My boyfriend of 9 months was arrested and I am the alleged victim. We were fighting that night but I didn'tcall the police. My mom called them after I called her for a ride. She hates my bf.

It will not be that easy for the charges to be dropped. And they are very serious. He needs a competent attorney today, and you do not need to communicate with him in any way. You may need your own attorney if you are not careful. Without proof the State's Case will be dismissed. But...Read more »
