my son in law is 31 yr old black male. A few weeks ago he was arrested for disorderly conduct. An off duty bouncer pushed him out of the bar ( for kicking a small garbage can. Once outside he pushed him into a car and then to the ground. In short the police came, told him he could leave. As he was walking away an officer grabbed him from behind and said "You are under arrest" He (Joe) asked repeatedly way he was under arrest. They (three officers) then tackled him to the groung.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: And with 3 officers sitting on his back and him yelling I am not resisting they tasered him 3 times and took him to jail. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. When he went to court the ast DA had a plea deal of 2 mons in jail and 6 months in jail for resting. This is in WI and has nothing to do with a car?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: sorry I lost connection. Yes they cant believe they want jail time. But they want thousands of dollars. They have some money for the down payment on a house they could use but I was hoping to find an attorney that would take the case on for a potion of a law suit against the police dep and the DA for molisious prosecution. She has never asked for jail time for a disorderly before. We live in a predominantly white area (90%)JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: We have video and many witnesses to the tasing

My girlfriend got drunk and was loud in a bar. They police came and ended charging here with resisting arrest and possession. The DA offered to drop the possession as it was a very small amount of weed, like a gram, and she has no priors. They offered 1 yr deferral on the resisting arrest and $500 fine. She has no money and does not want the deferral. They have no evidence as the camera was not on. Should she take the deferral and fine ?

I am accused of "Interference with a peace officer" in

I am accused of "Interference with a peace officer" in Wyoming, citation code no: 6-5-204. This is the definition on the Justia US Law Site: A person commits a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than one (1) year, a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000.00), or both, if he knowingly obstructs, impedes or interferes with or resists arrest by a peace officer while engaged in the lawful performance of his official duties.I received a citation for fishing without a WY fishing license, and I then provided false identity information to the officer (name, address, phone, dob). The following day the officer then discovered I had lied. I am guilty and intend to plead guilty.I have a hearing in Jackson Hole on Thursday, 7/28, and need to know if I should have an attorney present. It's considered a misdemeanor.Please don't answer if your response is simply, "yes, it's advised that you have an attorney present."Thanks!Michael

If Doe is accused of a crime that he is innocent of, and

If John Doe is accused of a crime that he is innocent of, and only because he gets scared, he does all of the following: Resists arrest and hits a police officer, when in jail, knocks a guard unconscious and escapes from jail, when in court after being recaptured, he knocks a bailiff unconscious and runs out of court and escapes, when recaptured, he knocks a guard unconscious and escapes jail again this time stealing a car to do so and leaving it abandoned in a vacant lot undamaged, when recaptured and in court again, it is discovered that he is innocent after all. Will all the assaults, escapes, and the grand theft auto and stuff be forgotten about because John Doe should never have been arrested in the first place because he was innocent and it was the error of the law, or would he still have to pay for those charges? (For the states of Texas and Indiana) Thank you.
