Grant St Julian III's answer You may want to contact the District Attorney's office in your county and see if the State can obtain some type of protective order (which would be at no cost to you).

Good luck, and thank you for your service.
Grant St Julian III's answer Stop admitting to felonies on social media. Your situation is a total mess. Should you report a felony before someone reports a different felony on you? Consider the two actions totally independent of one another. Your acquaintance will or will not report the robbery to the police, and reporting him as a drug dealer will have no affect on whether you are prosecuted for another charge.
Grant St Julian III's answer I am not sure of the question. If you are driving, the police stop you, your car is searched and contraband is discovered, you will be arrested. If no contraband is not found you will not. Claiming "Somebody else must have put it there!" is not a defense.
Grant St Julian III's answer Effectively, there is no bond permissible for a warrant on a parole violation. Your son will remain in custody until a parole revocation hearing is held.

Kiele Linroth Pace's answer This sounds like a misunderstanding of the law based on TV cop shows. They don't have to allow you a phone call before arrest and failure to inform you of your Miranda rights can lead to the suppression of any statements you made during custodial interrogation. Basically, it only matters if you confessed after being arrested.
All that being said, you should hire a local criminal defense attorney to represent you in this matter. It is wise to choose an attorney with an office in the...
