Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I guess my question is. is it ever to late to hire an attorney? and is there anyway to get a less plea agreement before a trial then the one offered? sorry this legal stuff is all new to me.. im trying to learn
he has 3 priors does that really hurt a case? I feel like this prosecutor is making it personal. The public defender said "the prosecutor is super pissed"
thank you so much.. I just been soo stressed and never had to deal with this legal stuff. You just listening and answering my questions really lifted weight off my shoulders.. I appreciate it
I went to several attorneys everyone said he is screwed with the priors and needs to take the 6 year plea.. he has to serve 85% of it which came up to 5 years one month plus time he is serving now.. even if he has to serve 85% of it, could he still be able to get out earlier then that?
im not getting call backs from my boyfriend or his attorney and im freaking out. I always check on his case online and this was filed today ROC– Release Order/Order Regarding Counsel - Party (001).. What does that mean? im taking it probably all wrong but im taking it like his public defender isn't on his case anymore. Also it says next week he has court for "initial appearance hearing bench warrant" does that mean he could get more chargers or maybe that's when they offer his final plea?
Yes he is
