Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
this new arrest is indeed for the same case that he was originally hired for. so basically i should just put in the complaint with the fl bar association for him being unethical?
If a motion of continuance is denied by the court but neither the attorney nor the defendant are ready for trial, will the case still go to trial, regardless?
My boyfriend had court yesterday, which they didn't even take him to court and his "lawyer" supposedly told him that the motion for continuance and that now they were going to trial even though they are not ready. Is this possible?
Another question. Can he put in his own motions to be able to speak with a judge since his lawyer never takes him to court? if so which motions would he need to file? Can he file a bond hearing motion?
But asking for a new lawyer means we lose the money that has already been paid to this other individual right?
Can a person receive credit for time served after having been on gps /home confinement for 6 months? Also if a person is convicted of traveling to meet a minor does that make him a registered sex offender. He was also charged with solicitation via computer but in parentheses it says parent
