My son in law is 31 yr old black male. A few weeks ago he

my son in law is 31 yr old black male. A few weeks ago he was arrested for disorderly conduct. An off duty bouncer pushed him out of the bar ( for kicking a small garbage can. Once outside he pushed him into a car and then to the ground. In short the police came, told him he could leave. As he was walking away an officer grabbed him from behind and said "You are under arrest" He (Joe) asked repeatedly way he was under arrest. They (three officers) then tackled him to the groung.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: And with 3 officers sitting on his back and him yelling I am not resisting they tasered him 3 times and took him to jail. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. When he went to court the ast DA had a plea deal of 2 mons in jail and 6 months in jail for resting. This is in WI and has nothing to do with a car?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: sorry I lost connection. Yes they cant believe they want jail time. But they want thousands of dollars. They have some money for the down payment on a house they could use but I was hoping to find an attorney that would take the case on for a potion of a law suit against the police dep and the DA for molisious prosecution. She has never asked for jail time for a disorderly before.

Received 2 tickets in VA on Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday.

Received 2 tickets in VA on Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday. First being VA 18.2-308 concealed gun carry without a permit. I had a carry permit that lapsed and I have taken the course to update but not gone to the courthouse yet to get finger printed. The ticket is a class 1 misdemeanor and the hearing is in Federal court in Roanoke in Oct. The other ticket is a disorderly conduct because I was with my boy friend. Do advise me to get a lawyer? Would there possibly be any jail time? I understand the fine could be up to $2500? I have a perfect record to this point

My relative was arrested yesterday (total around $150). She

My relative was arrested yesterday for shoplifting (total around $150). She is not poor at all and had no reason to steal but she went to the store picked up few items she liked wanted to pay for it but out of a sudden decided to press the elevator button to go out instead of going to the cash register which is just next to (after) the elevator with the items in her bag. She is an immigrant student (experienced professional outside the US) works part time and lives with her sister so no personal expenses at all. Her sister is paying her college fee too that she will have to return with no deadline, so no interest no stress of paying high interest an deadline. Its unbelievable what happened there.She could have walked to the cash register (that she told she was planning to with items in her bag....) after she prssed the elevator button she wanted to fix her thought of leaving and then pay for the items and then leave but before she could do that tore security folks came by and asked her to come with them. When she told them she was going to pay for the items they didn't believe and sad she was lying. They also said they have on Camara that she shoplifted in April. Not sure if that happened or if they have that coverage that shows clearly she left without paying or they are just saying that. She had 4 tops and 2 dresses in the bag... I am sure she would have paid...she also said she was going up at the entrance to meet her sister as she was coming to the store to see the items she had selected with the baby and there is no cell phone signal at all in the store. She was shocked when she saw police their in 5 minutes and they didn't let her call her sister. They arrested her and told her she will have to go the police station first and then only she can call anyone. So this was all the bizzare incident.She is an immigrant student spending loads of money on her masters doing a part time job at the same university, no reason for stealing, what would you suggest should be the next step. She was released in less than 2 hours with a desk appearance ticket for Aug 11th. I she is found or proved guilty it's going to impact her whole life negatively and all the effort and hard work she has done till date will go waste due to this incident. This obviously is a first time arrest and we are hoping to get a dismissal and sealing of records so that this doesn't show up on her background check while applying for jobs or green card etc. Please suggest the best way to get the dismissal and sealing of record as if never happened.This has to be sealed/ plunged (not allowed in NYC) so sealed else her life is ruined. need detailed response / help ASAP with step by step process we should follow and anything you want to tell us to make the case stronger for dismissal.

My spouse was issued a MUNI Disorderly Conduct citation. It

My spouse was issued a MUNI Disorderly Conduct citation. It says at the top of the citation that he does not have to appear in court on 7/18/2016. I am assuming he will be found guilty if he does not appear and will need to pay the $816.00 fine.He is considering pleading "not guilty" to this citation but is not sure if it is worth it. I read that if he does plead not guilty, a date will be set up to what is called a pre trial with the district attorney and then if it is not resolved, it would then go to trial in front of a judge. I hope I got tha correct. If he pleads no contest, it says he will be found guilty and needs to pay the fine. Not sure what is the best route.This was all from an altercation at a gas station with another person there who called the police. Story is longer, but the charge on the citation says Disorderly Conduct with a weapon.

My son was arrested in Public Disorderly Conduct (647(F) PC)

My son was arrested for Drunk in Public Disorderly Conduct (647(F) PC) in Novato, CA (Marin County) last Saturday night. He spent the night in jail and was released on Sunday morning. He has a court date on June 24th.Clearly he is guilty of the offense but is the penalty "autpmatic" for such a first conviction. He has no other criminal record. Specifically would a defense attorney help wit the probation part of the penalty.

I have been charged with a domestic violence misdemeanor

I have been charged with a domestic violence misdemeanor case (battery and disorderly conduct). My spouse wanted to drop the charges but district attorney did not agree. We want to dismiss the case. I have no previous criminal record or any other convictions. My lawyer suggested that she should leave the state so that she will not get a subpoena and do not have to show up for trial. My spouse moved of state few months ago and living in some other state (1000 miles away). District attorney do not know that she moved out of state and so far they have not made any efforts to contact her. The case is set for trial next month. If the district attorney comes to know her whereabouts can they issue an out of state subpoena to her? How long does it take to serve an out of state subpoena? Thanks.
