My husband was arrested on a strangulation domestic and I

My husband was arrested on a strangulation domestic and I lied and I wanted to write the prosecutor explaining the situation. We have been having some problems just arguments though but it was getting to the point where it was in front of my children. The cops have been called several time but never arrested cuz they have just been arguments. The call before his arrest the officer told me the only way to get him out is if I said something happened, so I did. Now it has caused a lot of issues because he was already on parole. We cannot afford a lawyer.JA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MNJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NO!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't remember a lot about the evening because I had just come from a bday party paint-nite so was a bit intoxicated.

Got way too drunk Saturday and took a cab home I don't

Got way too drunk Saturday and took a cab home I don't remember not paying him but he said I didn't. He had my phone so the next morning we got in touch and I paid him for the ride the night before (54) and an extra 50 for the trouble I gave him. Can I still face legal consequences?

I was arrested at dulles airport for profanity and public

i was arrested at dulles airport for profanity and public intoxication. long story short, i was bumped from my flight and was put on a flight the next day. i had a funeral to get to the next day in atlanta, and basically it really upset me that i was going to miss it. so, i cursed at the gate agent. i had drinks after the inauguration - so i was a bit tipsy. i am worried it is now going to be on my record. i have never been in trouble with the law. a lawyer will cost $3200. should i hire him or could i basically ask the judge for leniency? truth is, i did use profanity and i was drunk. so i could really only plead guilty. any advice would be appreciated!JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: virgina - dulles airport. last fridayJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: yes - they saidJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no that's is about it

My son was charged with an ovi. He refused the breath test.

my son was charged with an ovi. He refused the breath test. He had a previous charge in 2011 where his BAC was under the limit and the court still prosecuted him. The public defender had him plead to physical control in 2011. I think he would still be eligible for a public defender for the current case.He is scheduled for a hearing in Mayors Court on Thursday. If he pleads not guilty it will go to the municipal court and he can get a public defender, right. He said the police officer had to give him the field sobriety tests 3 times before he determined he should ask for a breath test. The police pulled him over for not displaying his front licence plate in the proper place. There were no other citations.My thought is that he should plead not guilty and ask for a public defender then go to trial, since it won't cost him for the attorney. He would have 1 year licence suspension in Ohio for not taking the breath test anyway. He would claim that he refused the test because he would be prosecuted either way.
