Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
They did give me 19 months but I was in the hospital and could not go to court that day. I signed the papers before and they finger printed me. I assume they will take me from the court to prison if I can not get this changed to just probation or house arrest. I need to know if I have a chance at doing that?
Can I talk to the judge or does it have to be done through the lawyer? Sorry I am not up on the law and don't understand it very much. Do you have any idea what my chances are for getting it changed to house arrest or probation if I do everything I am told?
Thank you so much for your advice. You have been very helpful. Have a blessed evening.
Hi, I have a few more questions about my rights. I was not read my maranda right's. I don't know how to spell that, sorry. I was wondering if they could still charge me for not doing that? I have a court date and I am still in the hospital. They said they can give me a pass to go to court but have to go back to hospital. Can they take me from there to prison? I spoke with my lawyer and she said I shouldn't push things to much about the photo's I had. There were 5 counts and she said that 2 or 3 shouldn't have been counted so I am wanting to know why she doesn't want me to say anything, it seems like that could reduce the time they gave me. I would love to be able to talk with you on the phone if possible? Please let me know as soon as you get this if there is anything I can do about my right's not being read to me and if I should say something in court about the photo's? Thank you....This is actually Sharon speaking for John.
