Criminal (murder) trial in progress in San Diego. My

Criminal (murder) trial in progress in San Diego. My daughter lives in Kansas. The paralegal for the DA sent her an email "subpoena" - must she attend? California Penal Code 1330 seems to rule out the validity of the "subpoena" because the witness lives in another state and no one served her with itJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: California, San DiegoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: The jury trial for the first degree murder trial is in progress right now. My daughter has been "subpeoned" to appear and testify. But the "subpoena" was only an email from a paralegal at the DA's office. Does not comply with California Penal Code Section 1330. Need to confirm, and any possible consequences if she does not attend?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: "subpoena" sent in an email March 29, the DA's office booked flight at 5:45 am. on Easter Sunday morning because they want her to be the first witness on Monday morning. We are Catholic. This is egregious.

I am a crime mystery writer. In this situation, the detective goes to the home of a murder suspect, who invites him in. He secretly records their conversation. He gets the suspect to confess to murder. (Suffolk County, New York State)Questions — Is this a realistic act on the detective's part? Would the confession be admissible in court (suspect not mirandized and not in custody) Even if it's not admissible, might it still be useful to the detective?

The question will touch topics such as: confidential conversation and wiretapping in CALIFORNIAI have legal issue with my landlord and one day she,her sister, and 5 contractor guys entered my unit to remove my stove.She said to me something that will prove that she is lying about our ongoing case and my home security camera recorded it.Here are the details:- The camera is wifi based camera that record audio & video- The camera is not hidden, it is inside my unit and put in plain view in the kitchen area- When the landlord spoke (more like yelling), her sister was beside her in the kitchen area that is right beside the unit door/entrance- The door to my unit was wide open with those contractor guys outside in close proximity (around 15 ft radius)- My bedroom door was open with my girlfriend inside- My landlord is familiar with security camera, she installed many in around the house (she live in upstair unit)- The landlord know there is a camera, she illegally entered my unit few years ago to show my unit to house appraiser while i was out of town and when i came back my camera was covered with towelI believe the conversation does not count as confidential conversation and i didnt have a nefarious intent for that recording.So my question is can i use the audio video recording in the trial and if i committed a crime involving wiretapping law?Thank you for any help.

My son was charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly

My son was charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon in Dec. 2015. He was arrested in March 2016. I hired an attorney, and he has been paid. This attorney has had my son's case for almost a year. He has done, in my estimation, nothing to help my son. My son pleaded guilty, Feb. 2, 2017, thinking he was going to get probation. Now, we find out that no deal had been reached between the D.A. and his lawyer. The case will be decided by the Judge. I am upset because, his attorney did nothing to speak with the victims, to determine just what exactly happened. The attorney did not enter his mental state; an assessment from a mental health professional, nor have a mental evaluation done. My son has pleaded guilty. no doubt about that. but, what can I do to give him help to better his chances for probation. I am very dissatisfied with his attorney. I want to fire him. I don't think he will help my son with his best effort. As he has not done so far.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Houston, TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I don' t understand question.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.
