A friend was picked up for a parole violation in Alabama

A friend was picked up for a parole violation in Alabama (fugitive from justice Texas doc) almost 30 days ago and still hasn't been extradited. He did not commit a crime in Alabama. How long can they hold him waiting on extradition? JA: Our average wait time is under 20 minutes. Sometimes it takes just a minute. More complicated questions that need more research might take an hour or two. I'd be happy to chat with you while you wait. The stories I've heard working here... Customer: Chatting is fine with me JA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in? Customer: He is on parole in Texas. He had a family medical emergency in Alabama. He called and left messages for his PO in Texas and never heard from him. He left Texas to see the relative in ICU in Alabama and got picked up on a warrent. JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet? Customer: No, I'm wondering if we need to, or if it's pointless. JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you? Customer: Not that I can think of. I don't know enough about parole violations other than this is considered an administrative violation. He has received no paperwork and was never Mirandized . I have spoken to his PO in Texas and gotten no where. His PO violated him after he missed 1 appointment. He had been on moderate supervision.

Let me go offline and create this, ok? I'll be back in a

Let me go offline and create this, ok? I'll be back in a minute or two. JohnJA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: Pearl,Tomorrow morning I go before a judge on a parole violation. This is my first trip into the criminal justice system. I gave into a coerced plea bargain back on Jan 28 this year.Rather than do what I was coerced into saying I would do, I went back to college, enrolled in a criminal justice program and discovered the answers to a number of questions about this leper colony in which I find myself.BTW, I'm not a criminal. I'm a solid citizen in the service of my country. I've committed no crime against the State of California or my accuser with his gun-sensationalized 911 Call.In any case, last week an attorney did an incredibly bad job of arguing for a motion to withdraw my guilty plea – he based it on court transcripts, rather than the zero legal representation I've had throughout this trip.I've reached an incredibly low point of wanting to go in there tomorrow and say, “Just do what you will. Punish me, if you must.”Then, it occurred to me that if I accepted an offer to reinstate the terms of the plea – money I don't have and community service- that would give me an opportunity to file an appeal of the denied motion to withdraw my plea.That last paragraph is my question. Is that workable? Is that a viable way to get the plea withdrawn. Do you have a better suggestion?Thanks,JohnJA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Don't understand. Did you read all that already?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Sounded like I didn't do a good communication. What were you asking before we go forward?

And when did this happen?Customer: California and 9/6/16JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: He has a lawyer and nothing has really been told to him about what he thinks is going to happen.

I haven't selected a plan because I can't afford another

I haven't selected a plan because I can't afford another bill to pay every month. I just would like to get a couple of answers to questions for maybe about a week.If I select the least expensive plan with the one week free trial, can I cancel the plan at any time so I'm not charged for additional monthly charges on my cc?My son was on parole, he's an alcoholic and had a relapse in April and was arrested for a DUI in TX where he lives. Can you tell me what to expect? Would it be worthwhile to try to obtain a lawyer for him? He's scheduled to go to court on 10/20.
