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.
I surfed the internet, Craig List woman, not really sex, one
I surfed the internet, Craig List for adds woman for men, not really for real sex, one add called my attention, she wants some help for the rent. I met her on the street and I told her that I am not interested in sex, she tried to rob me with a knife, I was still in my car, happened just seconds after I met her. Was able to call the police and while she ried to take my phone, I was able to take the knife out of her hands and with the police on the phone she ran away. I presented charges for robery and murder intent. Emails from her are explicit indicating that she needs money for the rent. Police indicated that if I don't present charges, they will prosecute me for something like prostitute solicitation. I never engaged in this activity with this woman. Do I am protected under the fifth (already gave the police her phone number and the knife she used). Do I need a lawyer immediately or I need to wait to see if the police finds her and I need to testify.

My sister and I have been charged with shoplifting from our
My sister and I have been charged with shoplifting from our local store. She exited the store while I was still inside. The security guards came up to me and told me I needed to go with them because the girl I was with was caught shoplifting and I was an accessory. Is this even possible for me to get charged because I hadn't yet exited the store?
Hey My name is***** was recently involved in a home invasion.
Hey My name is***** was recently involved in a home invasion. 4 men broke into my home with guns and pistol whipped, beat, kidnapped and robbed my girlfriend and I. They stole over $7000 in Merchandise which include designer shoes and electronics. I had to have emergency surgery to fix my jaw and reconstructive plastic surgery to fix the bones around my eye and a medal plate was put behind my cheek.The cops seem like they are dragging their feet and definitely don't seem like they are on my side trying to catch these guys. 4 xanax pills where found in the living room and the cops are trying to make it seemed like I'm a drug dealer and that is the reason they robbed our home, but the real reason is because I have a Jordan/Shoe collection worth thousands plus jewelry and they were jealous. Honestly I am not involved with any of that. I smoke weed and buy prescription pills in small amounts for personal use only.While I was in the hospital the lawyers question me and my girlfriend. I admitted to nothing but my girlfriend said "Well i remember only 1 time he brought pills for his roommate but that's it" and she did not write an official statement. Now the cops definitely think I had something to do with this robbery but its didn't at all. I just want to know what is my exposure. They only found 4 pills and nothing else. Since I have roommates they cant prove the pills are mine but with what my girlfriend said I'm afraid they are looking into me as well. Do I need a Lawyer. Is their a chance i can get arrested or charged for this. I'm the victim here but I'm worried and don't have money to retain a lawyer. Please Help
In Oklahoma, my son is in a county jail. While in solitaryView more criminal law questions
In Oklahoma, my son is in a county jail. While in solitary confinement, he attempted to heat a bottle of water with a match and then flushed it in the toilet. He will be charged with (1) Arson, but level 1, 2, 3 or 4 is not known yet. He did not willfully try to burn down the building! He is also charged with (2)Possession of Contraband (matches) by Inmate and (3) Destroying Evidence. He wants to fight the charges because he did not willfully/intentionally attempt to start a fire for any malicious reason. Do you think he has a good case to take to trial? However, if he must plead guilty, are any of these charges a 50% crime? or 85% crime?
