I was arrested for first time in my 61 yrs for assault of police, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct. I had called 911 after being the victim of road rage and simply ask police to put on their masks due to COVID. I was injured in arrest and refused medical care. That evening after released...

From your facts I do not see a §1983 cause of action. But Diversion is usually the best disposition. Prior to the plea you will want to talk to an experienced attorney who knows how to file a Government Tort Liability Action. Again I would not file the suit as it is not a perfect...Read more »

I suspect she carries one or more firearms. I am sorry that you got talked into pleading to a crime worse than many...Read more »

As as a former LEO you know to keep your mouth shut, including on this forum. Take care of your dog for awhile so no further trouble erupts. Hire about any decent, competent attorney to represent you, as you need him to talk to the DA. Be prepared to make Restitution, probably at the first...Read more »
Usually not unless there is some special order from the Court. If you do not attend, the Court will definitely issue a Restraining Order, and possibly other mandates or orders which you will not know about until you are held in contempt or levied upon. Hire an attorney and definitely go to Court.

I kept getting new lawyers because of conflict of interest. I was given the public defenders office and they were representing the other people... Read more »
You have not stated what occurred. Apparently you need to hire a competent attorney to examine the Case. Either it needs to be expunged or if active, a Motion To Suppress must be filed and argued. A Speedy Trial Motion may be in order. Again hire an attorney and quit taking your free public...Read more »
