With 85% of the time to be served and credit beginning when his bond was revoked. Why is he being told his release date is in November?

It is so complex and complicated : No : The state of

It is so complex and complicatedJA: The Corporate Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Corporate Lawyer can help you best. Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.Customer: The state of Maryland changed the disposition of a case to reflect a negative outcome after it had originally reflected the proper outcome, stating I was guilty of domestic violence when in fact the Court's order was that the Final protective order was denied. The state failed to notify me of this, and I was unaware of it until I was called a liar by a friend. I believe the state deprived me of due process of law as well as committing Libel against me. I want to sue the state in federal court as the state courts have been biased against me, the latest in which the Child Support enforcement agency attempted to enforce court ordered child support with a perjured affidavit, for which the state will not prosecute the individual, but have left it to me to prosecute, which I want to do as well at the state level, though the effect (derogatory to me) was a state to state action and across state lines, and therefore could be considered a federal perjury actionJA: OK. The Corporate Lawyer will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Corporate Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: Well the state refuses to enforce its own laws and have prejudiced their rulings against me, and I want to sue the state in Federal Court, which I believe I have the right to do as the state receives federal funding and therefore the state immunity from prosecution is voided automaticallyJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Corporate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

Indiana arrested and bailed out april 15 ,2016 for residential

Indiana arrested and bailed out april 15 ,2016 for residential entry & driving habitual both 6 felonies. The court cancelled and rescheduled my initial hearing due to a police officer being killed in our community and his funeral being held on that day.They rescheduled for April 19th. The clerks office issued a summons and they tried to deliver it to old wrong address. It was returned to clerks office undeliverable wrong address. I checked the legal website Doxpop and found my new court date as April 19,2016. I have not even had an initial hearing yet . Could the charges be dismissed due to the excessive time it has taken to even get in front of a judge for the initial hearing.The funeral had nothing to do with me . when I go to court tomarrow am I obligated to bring it to the courts attention if they do not call my name and if they don't call it what would happen to the summons would it turn into a warrant or just lay in the clerks office until I would possibly get picked up in the future and then charged . I have evidence that both crimes should be dismissed. Do I need a probable cause evidence hearing prior to the initial hearing when the formal charges are read. At the initial hearing can I request such a hearing and time to hire a lawyer. I do not want to plead if it has any bearing on the formal charges. Can I tell the judge if he calls my name that I 'd like to continue the initial hearing to a later date so that I can secure a lawyer. Its only been a couple days since I found out the date and that the summons they tried to serve me was delivered to the wrong address.Can I tell the judge I do not want to plead today and haven't had time to retain proper representation.
