My minor son (13) has been charged with a Class C

My minor son (13) has been charged with a Class C Misdemeanor for Electronic Transmission of Certain Material Depicting a Minor. Penal Code 43.261 (Texas) So far, we know that the fine will be $316 and we are to go before a Judge this Thursday. It's been brought to my attention that perhaps he should have legal representation. I don't wish to be unprepared, but am uncertain of how these proceedings work. Any advice?

I hired a lawyer to defend my son and the communication from the beginning of the case was not there. He lost the case because the firm office didn't communicate with him (lack of communication) the court day and this was not the first time.

My 20 year old granddaughter was caught with possession of a

My 20 year old granddaughter was caught with possession of a metal grinder containing marijuana crumbs by the Palisades PD - she was cited with 2c:35-10A(4) and 2C:36-2. The arresting officer made it seem as if it is not a big deal. She is leaving the area in about 10 days to do volunteer work at a health and yoga center. The cops told her to just call and get a postponement for a date after she returns to the area. She was not smoking anything but I am concerned that the cop made it out to be less than the charge implies.

Our son is in the Airforce and his live in "girlfriend" and

Our son is in the Airforce and his live in "girlfriend" and her son provoked him to the point that he put his hands around her neck (chocked) her after she verbally and emotionally attacked him after our son disciplined her son. She had him arrested and he voluntarily left with the law enforcement. They advised him to avoid any contact with her and to not return to HIS apartment where she is staying and to have no contact with her for the next 30 days. He is stationed in Alaska and we would like to help him in any way we can to protect himself, his reputation and career. This is totally out of his character and would like to advise him what steps he should take in the awful situation. He was honest and forthright telling the law enforcement the details when he was arrested.

I sold candles to someone two years ago. Recently an attorney

I sold candles to someone two years ago. Recently an attorney called me asking for the invoice for that purchase. She briefly touched on the case by saying her client was set up and that the box I sent via FedEx carried marijuana. I'm a craft candle maker. Not in business to make a name other than I care how the candles won't hurt our environment. I moved since then. And any and all receipts I ever wrote out are disposed of. What can I do to assist the attorney?

My 70 year alcoholic aunt accused my daughter of stealing 9,500

My 70 year alcoholic aunt accused my daughter of stealing 9,500 cash from her home on a day. She kept calling drunk asking for the money and after several days of this I made my daughter change number. She filed in Hennepin county with the police who investigated it on both ends. The case is open/inactive with the SGT saying she needed more evidence and they could reopen. My Aunt wait a few months and took it to conciliation court. The judge read the accusation and told Brittany she should speak as the claim was a felony and she need to go to criminal court which was set up in right county. I tried to tell him about the police investigation that already happen and he quiet me as I was not Brittany. My question is this was already investigated with a case number ***** can he reopen another case for a hearing in a county where the false theft didn't take case. I feel because the judge was not aware she already had a case open he moved into the criminal court and this should be dropped. She I go to the courts and ask to speak with someone sharing the first report and stats? thank you

Police with a history of illegal search and seizure and old

Police with a history of illegal search and seizure and old vendettas against my husband came to my house with a "failure to appear" warrant on my husband. The alleged arrant had a $250 body attachment. They entered our garage without having announced or knocked...They immediately started asking about his camaro and stating they would take it on suspicions that it had been used for drug related offense and/or purchased with drug money. We are a paycheck to paycheck type of family. We worry about bills all the time and do not sell drugs at all. The purchase of his car can easily be proven. They refused to show him the warrant and placed him in custody. I had no idea they were even here, they beat on the door and as I answered they began to scream at me to allow them to search my house. None of the 3 told me who they were not what department they were from. I have never encountered police with the exception of an occasional speeding ticket. I have now lost all faith in law enforcement. My daughter had just left and I was terrified something had happened to her and even asked if she was okay. With their hands on their guns, they began to yell about how my husband was arrested and in the vehicle, that he gave permission to search and that if I didn't sign their paper they would be right back with a search warrant, I would be arrested, my children would become wards of the state and we'd never see each other again. I was terrified. Shaking. My anxiety was through the roof. I didn't know what to do. I took the paper and they made me go outside into my front porch. While reading the paper, one officer had already entered my house and was yelling at me asking "where is your f**king purse" I had no choice but to sign. They already entered. They Were here for 4 hours. Seized his vehicle that's only in my name. They charged my husband with methamphetamine making materials. They have since been back twice trying to force me to sign yet another consent to search to which I refuse. (I now know my rights) each time they say they'll come back with a warrant but have yet to come up with one. During one of the visits, one of the officers went to my back yard and was digging through my trash. Our trash is not public property and he had no permission to do so. He is recorded. With all of my research, I believe this to have been an illegal search and seizure. We are more than willing to sell everything we own to get an attorney who can help us in this matter. Please help with any advice or where we should go from here. We love in Illinois. Never in my life have I been treated this way.
