I received a notice to appear for arraignment (Criminal Complaint) for a violation of municipal code 91.8105 (No building permit – failure to correct) from the Office of the City Attorney in Los Angeles.

I live in Texas but hired an attorney in L.A., he stated that I do not have to physically appear for arraignment, he will be there to represent me. Is this factual?

I am a teacher that was accused of sexually abusing a

Hi! I am a teacher that was accused of sexually abusing a student of mine back in June. Unfortunately the police coerced a statement out of me. Today my attorney made motions to have the statement suppressed, by the way, we are in New York State. The police felt there would be more victims; however, there are none. I have 11 charges against me. I have never been in trouble with the law, thus I was released under supervision. My lawyer feels that if a plea is made by the district attorney, which there has not been one up to this point, it would include prison time. He also said that if we go to jury trial and I am found guilty, I would face much more time than if I took the plea...my question is (as this is my first time ever being in the legal system, like I said) is this my attorney just giving worst case scenario? He did say that the police did let me go with no bail, etc. and released me under supervision...I have been teaching for 15 years as a Special Education Teacher and never had any accusations up to this point...so I am scared to death.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: New York State, June 2016JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Such as?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.
