When I was 17 I was living in Texas and was arrested for aggravated assault with deadly weapon. I had a pocket knife in my pocket when I was fighting with my father. I was arrested that night and spent the night in jail; however, I was not read my Miranda rights, nor have I ever gone to court for this issue, nor was I given a court date. I am now twenty years old. I the past two months I have moved to California and have decided to join the military.

I was recently arrested and charged with alleged stealing.

I was recently arrested and charged with alleged stealing. During processing, I was read my Miranda Rights. Since then, I have tried to get help in getting an attorney. The Public Defender will not help due to the case being in Municipal. The Prosecuting Attorney will not even talk to me because I don't have an attorney. And the Missouri Bar seems not to want to help. I have civil rights especially since the officer read me my Miranda Rights and stated that the Centralia Police Department or the Boone County Court System has to provide a lawyer to my case.If they are unable to honor an attorney on my be half, can I ask the Judge to Dismiss the case? If so, how would I word it to the Judge?

My son had kicked in his window to his apartment the other

My son had kicked in his window to his apartment the other night because a friend was in the apartment intoxicated and not answering the door after many attempts of calling and knocking. A neighbor heard the window break and called the police. My son was in his room dealing with his friend when there was a knock on the door. His other friend answered the door. It was the police. They entered the home (six of them) and proceeded to look around the apartment. They then found marijuana paraphernalia. They confiscated it, handed my son a business card of a drug task force agent and asked him to call a few days later. He was not arrested. My son called the officer who informed him that he wanted my son to become an informant, wear a wire and help arrest others. My son declined. The next day three police officers showed up at his apartment and arrested him. Handcuffed him and charged him with drug possession and paraphernalia. There were no drugs in his apartment, He was not given his Miranda rights. Can a student in college be arrested after the fact, as well as declining to become an informant???

My partner and I were not aware of are rights and were never

My partner and I were not aware of are rights and were never warned of our rights before we were questioned about some Aluminum shelves we took from a renovating company that we believed was from the snack company that moved out of that building complex. For 15 years that snack company made an offer to me to collect there recycled material such as copper, aluminum, wire, and computers. A week later we were arrested for Grand Theft. We were never warned of our Miranda Rights.We saw the aluminum shelving there one day and decided to wait a week to see if any one claimed it. The shelves were dirty and it was raining during that week we waited. We decided to recycle the shelves. After 3 days a police officer questioned us and unaware of our rights we answered the truth and they told us it did not belong to the snack company but the renovating company. We offered to pay the amount of the shelves and we tried to retrieve it back at the recycling company, but they processed the aluminum and was shipped out and melted. We want to know if our rights were violatedand can that be used in court to dismiss all the information that the police officer questioned us about.
