My son just got his first DUI in Connecticut. I know the laws changed July 2015. He has his first hearing today....bond hearing?? and we do not know what to expect. Should he get a public defender? Should we get our own lawyer? The law is very definitive but he doesn't know if he should just plead guilty as we don't what a lawyer could do to help him. Will he have to do some jail time? Is this a felony and will he have to put it on his work applications for the rest of his life? Thank you
I just received in the mail a warrant for my "immediate
I just received in the mail a warrant for my "immediate arrest". It is for a possession of marijuana. This is my first drug offense and I'm 19 years old currently attending Hope College in Holland, MI. On the letter, it says I have a $125 cash surety and it's encouraged I go and turn myself in. I planned on going to the court tomorrow morning to turn myself in and pay the bond with cash. What should I expect when I go to the court to do that or should i do something different. Thank you.
My son was arrested in July 2016 for Possession of drug
My son was arrested in July 2016 for Possession of drug paraphernalia and under the influence. Both Misdemeanors. He was homeless at the time, living in a hotel. When he left the hotel, he left the papers with the court appearance date. He tried to recover them but they had been thrown away. A warrant was issued on 10-5. He wants to go and put himself on calander but I fear he will be arrested on spot. He now has a failure to appear. I really dont know where to go from here. I dont want him to go and put himself on calander without legal representation. He has a great job now, a place to live etc. I dont want to see him loose all of that.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: Ventura County CA, OCT 5, 2016JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. Just found out about this tonight. He applied for a gun licence, and he was denied.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I dont think so. I really dont know much about this yet.

I was charged with a misdemeanor a litttle over 2 yrs ago in
Hi. I was charged with a misdemeanor a litttle over 2 yrs ago in seattle. I agreed to 2500 fine 120 community service hours.i procrastinated and paid 2000 of the money, did zero hrs community service. Went to court Oct 9 talked to my court appointed lawyer and he said the prosecutor would probably agree to a deffered , or i could have the judge decide guilt or innocence by only reading the police report facts. The prosecutor was begining to say (to the judge)they would agree to the defered when the judge realized my speedy trial rights were violated and case was immediately dismissed . My question simply is do i get my 2000 dollars back i have been paying monthly due to not being found guilty/case dismissed ?
I went out on a camping trip to mount rainier,wa with some
I went out on a camping trip to mount rainier,wa with some friends and when me and my girlfriend got to the campsite my friends were allready there, my friends and my girlfriend were shooting guns for a bit and later had the firearms located at the camp site by the tents. My girlfriend had just left to go to the store in town about 15 miles away meanwhile a forest service officer came to our site and asked what we were doing and who's guns they were so my friend claimed his guns and I had told the officer the last gun there was my girlfriends but she had just went to the store, he proceeded to run everyone's names and later placed me and a friend in handcuffs and the officer advised us we both had a charge from 2008 that was still on our record that would prevent us from having legal possession of a firearm. He uncuffed me and my friend and told us we will get something in the mail then he left, it's been over a year and still have not heard anything I've called several places and everytime they keep telling me they don't show anything on that in the system, my question is what should I do to cover myself to be sure? Also what could be the possible outcome of this if it does go to court?
