My wife was wrongly accused of switching tags

Hello, my wife was wrongly accused today of switching tags at Century 21 department store. This is in the state of New York. It was after 6:00 pm so have only left messages for my lawyer. We have two babies and my wife signed papers so she could be released. I'm worried about what she signed and what they'll do with it. We are financially in good shape and there's absolutely no reason my wife would do this. We are also going through a green card renewal as she's foreign born.

My son has charges in 2 courts of possession of

My son has charges in 2 courts of possession of paraphernalia. Before he received notification of these charges, he made the wise choice to detox and go to treatment in California. He has now successfully completed treatment, intensive outpatient, outpatient, is living in sober living in California (doesn't want to return to old environment) and is working fulltime, as well as working the 12-steps with a sponsor and attending meetings. He is 4 months clean today, and happy and healthy in his recovery. He is flying home for an arraignment in one court on Monday, and will try to have one on Tuesday in the other court. He only has a few days off work. The question is, what is likely to happen next? He doesn't want to lose his job, and feels that he has already done what the courts would want him to do. He is hopeful that, best case scenario, the charges would be dropped given his choice to change his life, complete treatment, etc., or that there won't be further court dates to disrupt his job and new life in recovery. What will the likely next steps be?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Oops, this is not a real estate law question....JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: This is in Washington State. Please see my question above...is this the right venue for the question?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No I think that's it, thank you.

Lawyer, Earlier today, I was convicted of shoplifting in

Hello Lawyer,Earlier today, I was convicted of shoplifting in California and gave me 488 PC and asked me to appear in court by November. I'm really scared this was my first offence and I don't have any criminal record. I was out of my mind and I was absent minded while doing it, I never had intention to steal anything, I never ran with anything, I just walked out to different store without realizing I took stuff from the store. Please help me and how will this effect my future career, I'm non immigrant. Please help me.

I was intoxicated and tried to come over into other people's apartment but did not break into it. Someone called the police and the officer handcuffed me and took me to the police station. I answered all the questions they had, and the officer really liked me and I as one of the officer's son went to same school that I go. They did not photograph me or finger print me. And They took me to my apartment that is 7 miles away, saying dont do any other stupid things. I did not get any ticket. Was I being arrested or detained?
