Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I am a bit confused by your explanation -- can you tell me what you did that got you arrested for criminal trespassing? Were you completely banned from entering this casino PRIOR to being arrested and you violated the ban on entering the casino?
If you were banned from going into that casino can you tell me the reason WHY they banned you from the casino ?? What did you do to want you out?
Hello again Mohamed --
You banned yourself. Okay. However, the casino will not usually seek a criminal trespass arrest if you break a ban that you imposed upon yourself. Is there another reason WHY you were arrested for criminal trespassing ??
We are not permitted to represent customers offline but I can give you some suggestions on how to handle these matters going forward. First, the reason why you were arrested seem to be unclear (at best) and not good enough to rise to the level of actually arresting your for criminal trespass (if the reason for the arrest was a self imposed ban), My suggestion is that you speak to the prosecutor on the date of the first hearing in this case when you get to court and explain what happened and ask that the charges be dismissed against you (a prosecutor has the power to dismiss such charges if the person does not have a criminal record or history of being involved in other non criminal incidents). If the prosecutor is unwilling to dismiss the charges outright then you should discuss with the prosecutor the minimum fine here and ask that the entire case be granted what is called either "pretrial probation' -- this is where the court continues the matter without a finding for 6 months and then after 6 months the matter will be dismissed so long as you have not been in any additional trouble with the police or the courts during that six month period AND you will not get a criminal record. If you do not believe that you will be able to handle the negotiations with the prosecutor by yourself then you may want to seek out an attorney to assist you with thees matters (it will be worth the cost of the attorney because you can avoid getting a criminal record if the matter is handled appropriately). To find a local attorney to assist you in these matters you should contact your local county bar association -- here is a link to their referral section -- http://www.msba.org/public/referral.asp you should ask for a criminal law specialist to help you in court for these matters. Finally -- I note that you asked for the conversation to not be made public -- you have to press a positive rating under this ANSWER box and then when the entire thread is completed and closed the customer service can remove it from the public view.
Please let me know if you hae more questions. If not, please press the 3rd, 4th or 5th smile face underneath this ANSWER box (below) so I will be paid for my time. I am not paid unless you press a positive rating below. THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!
