Me and my wife got into an argument over who would drive

Me and my wife got into an argument over who would drive after leaving the bar one night. She was drunk and had two DUI's and I asked for the car keys. She wouldn't give them up so since they and her cell phone were both hanging out of her pocket (Small stylish, chic jacket with only HALF pockets) i merely reached over and took them. She protested which started a HUGE fight. The cops showed up and I walked off. Long story short they charged me with FELONY robbery for taking my WIFES cell phone. One that I had paid for BEFORE our marriage. What pretrial motion can i file to dispose of this before the trial date and what case law would it be based on please?

This skit is a dream I just had: My friends are staying over

This skit is a dream I just had: My friends are staying over for the night and a group of two persons break into my home. They are armed with edge weapons (one of them has a licensed conceal and carry gun in his long coat pocket. A fight breaks out and nobody dies because the attackers abruptly stopped to dance. The attacker without the gun puts his scissors on the nightstand in the foyer area (where the incident is taking place). I seize the opportunity to pickup the scissors and stab him in the neck. What are the crimes and sentences of the people in the scenario. Use your best judgement in all circumstances.

I have a son who is incarcerated going on 3 years. It all

I have a son who is incarcerated going on 3 years. It all started when he violated his first offender. He was on first offender for robbery. He violated first offender by allegedly committing another armed robbery plus an attempted armed robbery. He supposedly confessed to the armed robbery but the investigation produced no identification from witnesses that it was him. No one IJA: In what state did this occur?Customer: gEORGIAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NOJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: YES. THE JUDGE VIOLATED HIM ON HIS FIRST OFFENDER AND GAVE HIM 25 YEARS TO SERVE. HE PLED OUT OUT TO THE ARMED ARMED ROBBERY FOR 40 DO 20. HIS PLEA SENTENCE IS CONCURRENT WITH THE 25 ON THE FIRST OFFENDER. IS THERE ANY WAY TO GET THIS SENTENCE MODIFIED OR REDUCED AT LEAST GET HIM ELIGIBLE FOR PAROLE? HIS RECORD IS NOT THAT SCANDALOUS; HE HAS THESE TWO ARESTS FOR THESE TWO OFFENSES. MY SON SEEM TO THINK THAT THE INVESTIGATION WAS TAINTED IN THAT THE DETECTIVE SHOWED THE VICTIM IN THE ROBBERY HIS PHOTO PRIOR TO PLACING HIM IN A LINEUP. IS THERE ANY HOPE HERE?

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.
