You have made a serious mistake. The Court tried to not destroy your life with some type of Diversion, but you violated it. It is very possible a large amount of the 11/29 Sentence you pled to will now be ordered served, anywhere from 30 to 90 days at least. Contact your attorney and tell him how you think you violated Probation and pay the entirety of your Court Costs and Fines prior to the 14th. That way the Court and the Probation Officer might want to give you another chance.

Q: if I'm arrested and not read my miranda rights can the court still convict me?

Yes if they have sufficient Evidence to present to the Court outside of what you verbally told the Officers. The Miranda Case only concerns Testimonial Evidence you give against yourself, not any other Evidence.

I have no idea what the Waiver is that you are talking about. That is not a Statute in Tennessee, but it might be a City/County Ordinance or a Local Court Rule. You should hire a competent attorney now.

Q: Can a person on probation who is court ordered to a sober living house be charged with escape if he is asked to leave?

Anthony Marvin Avery's answer
It is doubtful you will be criminally charged for escape. But violation of your Probation or Supervised Release is very likely. I suggest you contact your Probation Officer immediately, because he will probably violate you anyway and you might as well explain it now. Your Lawyer might even contact him.

Anthony Marvin Avery's answer
Yes, provided you comply with all other laws. The State AG has the opinion that Felons cannot own Muzzleloaders, but this is contrary to all Statutes and Caselaw. If someone was prosecuted for Possession of a Muzzleloader only (which is doubtful), The Courts would dismiss it if the defendant challenged it with a decent attorney. Contact the NRA to refer a competent attorney to you for a consultation on what you can and cannot have as a Felon.

Q: Can I be charged with possession and concealed carry? If neither were within reach.

You will want to file a Motion To Suppress as you could not give permission to search car. Hopefully you did not have the keys to the car or the room. The Government can argue constructive possession, but hopefully your prints were not on weapon nor ammo. Also hopefully there are no witnesses placing you with the weapon earlier. Finally I trust that you did not give permission for any type of search. Hire a competent attorney now, who must immediately research the Case and prepare Motions...

Anthony Marvin Avery's answer
The normal answer is no. There is an ATF Regulation that sometimes grants ownership of a specific firearm, but it is almost never granted, and never upon a violent firearm criminal conviction. A competent NRA lawyer can advise you of your weapon options.

Rarely do cops charge Simple Possession. They and the DA's want Felony Charges. Either they think you are in business with the Co-Defendant or you were in constructive possession of all incriminating items. Hire a competent attorney now, and prepare for a good Preliminary Hearing.

This area of the law is very difficult and highly specialized. I would consult with a local employment discrimination attorney. He or she will know whether and how to position the case with the EEOC, the Tennessee Human Rights Commission or the Court system.

Why have you not asked your attorney?

Without ALL the facts and other information it would be impossible to advise properly.

It would like going to a doctor solely with the urine test results and then asking how one's health is.

I guess if 2 cases were dropped, you should continue to fight the others

Don Himmelberg's answer
I am a little confused about the exact status of your friends case, but a failure to appear is a felony in Tennessee, regardless of whether your friend knew about the court date or not. He needs to either get ahold of the court clerk or talk to a defense attorney - it is not unusual for a warrant to be issued in FTA cases
