My son was stopped violation, and cops found marijuana

My son was stopped for traffic violation, and cops found marijuana grinders in backpack in trunk of one of the kids in car. My son had no idea it was there. It was empty. My son got ticket, court date, and now I'm wondering if we should have had or have lawyer. My son pleaded guilty (thinking he'd get probation) , judge has not sentenced yet, but gave him 2 weeks to think about his life. Tomorrow we go for sentencing. What can we do now!?

Had nothing to do with attorney me not getting my hearing.

Had nothing to do with attorney me not getting my hearing. Everything to do with judge. I asked lawyer the day before court why didn't he just "argue an illegal warrant" He told me that, "the judge isn't going to overrule herself" and I'm looking at him thinking, why the hell didn't he change venue to a different court and WHY is he telling me this a day before court instead of four months ago!!!

I have a domestic violence misdemeanor conviction with an ex

Hi,I have a domestic violence misdemeanor conviction with an ex girlfriend in Connecticut 15 years ago (2001). Since then I'be been happily married since 2002, we are relocated into Phoenix area 2 years ago from Philladeplia area.I found out few weeks ago while applying for buying a hand gun for home protection purposes, I found out that I got declined and doing research looks like the 2001 domestic violence misdemeanor conviction is most likely the reason. I have 2 questions: should I try to expunge that conviction or set aside to regain my gun ownership rights? If yes, do I need an attorney hired in CT where that case was or can I hire in AZ an attorney and expunge that case from AZ courts? Also after expunging that conviction, do I seek in CT the judge order to lift my gun rights ban or would that part fall within AZ courts?Thank you

I am a British citizen living in the US. In Feb 2016, I had a criminal case dismissed, but the prosecution has indicated they are appealing. If I was to return to the UK, is it likely the US courts would pursue this, if the appeal resulted in the case being re-opened? The case was for unlawful surveillance

I have a court date from what I understand is a misdemeanor

I have a court date from what I understand is a misdemeanor case for possesion of <25grams of THC. I am 18 years old, had a clean record before hand and was led to beleive by the officer that if I were to show up to the optional court date that I would not face extremely harsh punsihment (jail time especially) and was also told straight up that it would not impede on my admittance to my University. I would like any sort of assurance as to if the officer was lying to me/what to expect. Thank you for your timeI have the money to pay the 439$ fine in full. The specific ordinance violated was 9.961.41 (3g) (e). More or less I am concerned about my future, immediate and long term. I am concerned about my ability to get an education and employment. Also, specifically what I need to avoid during my court case in order to minimize chances of jail time/other punishments.
