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.

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.

How can I prove that because of my mental health conditions

How can I prove that because of my mental health conditions I at times of feeling threatened or in danger my defense mechanisms kick in an I do and say things that I should not be accountable for along with being under the influence, I have been diagnosed with both Bipolar disorder and PTSD. I am charged with two counts of retail organized theft in each case the amounts were less than 200$ per case. I do admit that I was shoplifting but am being charged for organized retail theft because at some point of questioning I said I was going to sell the things I had to my friend but then I go on later to say that I wasn't charging her I was going to give them to her because she gave me 500$ a few weeks before. that was a gift so I told her on the day of arrest that if she went into store an got the stuff I would get it for her no money had been spoken about because there was not going to be I was doing it to help her save money.I did not even know what I said till shown the video

Is it possible to have my criminal record completely

Is it possible to have my criminal record completely expunged in the state of Alabama? I am now 37 and when I was 18 (two weeks after my birthday), I took a dare from a friend and shoplifted a stick of deodorant from Walmart and got caught. When I was 22 I got a charge of resisting arrest and public intoxication during a night at Mardi Gras. I went to court and had those two Nol Prossed but they still show on my record. I work internationally and each time I renew my visa and for any background check I'm always having to explain all three of these charges. I just would like for them to go away..., a clean slate of you will. Is it possible?
