Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hi and welcome
Absolutely. This was a gross misunderstanding where many people got involved when they shouldn't have based on faulty assumptions as to what was happening. You'll find that in a case like this if you ask 10 people what happened, you'll get 15 different stories. The judge isn't going to try to make sense of it all. Get a lawyer to make sure it's dismissed.
REMEMBER THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICETo find an attorney, go to Martindale.com. This is a nationwide directory we lawyers use ourselves to find highly qualified legal specialists in various fields of law. These lawyers are NOT in Martindale because they paid to be included. They are there because they are rated as QUALIFIED by other lawyers in their field of expertise and geographic area as it applies to your kind of case. The process is this: other lawyers are asked to fill out questionnaires giving their opinion of the quality of the work of the law firm that ultimately appears in Martindale. The site is organized geographically and by legal specialty. Consult with two or three and select the one you are most comfortable with. The Martindale listing will have the names of current or past clients. Contact those clients as references for the firm.Please refer to the JUST ANSWER disclaimer and rule on this site. You have to consult with an attorney in your state and discuss this matter with him or her. THE REASON is that we do not have an attorney-client relationship and the confidentiality that goes with it on this site. Our exchange is available for all to see. Note that this rule is applicable even though I am a New York attorney and your question may relate to NY law.Please ACCEPT MY ANSWER so that I may get credit for assisting you. Then press 3, 4 or 5 to rate it.Please do NOT press 1 or 2 since that will result in a negative rating for me which you may not have intended If you want further information or clarification, just ask before you accept my answer and give a rating. rich
continuing from last question; My husband was arrested on domestic violence, and felony strangulation. They have no case. Talked to prosecutor she offered to drop felony if he plead on domestic violence. We /he said no one way. So the next week got letter from prosecutor with Order to Dismiss the felony charge and the No Contact Order Dismissed. But she is going on with other charge of Domestic Violence. So why would she dismiss the No Contact Order if she is still charging with domestic viol. If she fills she can dismiss the no contact order then she must not be worried that he is violent .
