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.

Over the weekend I was cited Assault / Disorderly Person. I

Over the weekend I was cited for Simple Assault / Disorderly Person. I was in an uber and the driver would not let us out after asking numerous times and kept laughing and driving. After about 15 min and repeatedly asking he finally pulled over. At this time I had shoved him and he hit his nose and had some bleeding. I was taken to the PD and processed. I plan to file a complaint against the driver as I felt threatened which led to my actions. Should I get a lawyer as well? Am I doing the right thing by filing a complaint for simple assault against the driver? I am in NJ.
