Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thanks so much!! What is some questions I could ask my lawyer and sound somewhat like I know what I am talking about...lol? Obviously, you cannot foresee the future...but considering is my first arrest on anything, if for some reason I am charged what is the punishment for something like this
This will be first court appearance other than when I had my bind set, You what actually is the is court date? a trial? hearing? again forgive the ignorance, but i am not a criminal so i have never done this before
I am so sorry for all the questions, I know I shoudl be asking my lawyer this stuff but he seems to get frustrated when I do. Whatis my best option here. Like I said, my ex, who we are friends, has repeatedly said she wants this to all go away and np drama. two days after I got out of jail she cried to me that it was all her doing, she shouldn't have done what she did by coming to my place....etc
and yes...first court appearance . not ev sure I had an arraignment>> i went through the booikbg process...a lady behind a door, that I guess was a magistrate, gave me paperwork stating I had no bond set and then went to jail of 48 hours. the 2nd day, walked in front of a judge...he stated my court date and then told me bond was set at $5000. I was in the courtroom maybe a total of 45 secs
How do I know if there is a no contact order? would I know this by now ?
and I will rate you for sure
So I would have definitely received paperwork for such a thing...correct?
Shes the one reached out to me two days after I git out of jail
well I have not received anything from the state other than a piece of paper saying court is April 12th and that's it.
Anything else that pops in your mind that I should be aware of nd I am going to try and get an appointment with my lawyer tomorrow
Good point. Juts seems the more I ask him he gets pissed off. we'll try it again tomorrow
thanks again and sorry to waste your time
