My mentally ill son has been charged with armed robbery &

My mentally ill son has been charged with armed robbery & assault of his father & I, he overdosed on pills & did not assault us. We have filed requests to dismiss, but with public defender as atty, he now has date for trial. Should I let the State Atty know that the only witness, my husband, was heavily medicated when he gave a recorded statement? Should we try to submit notarized letters to SA requesting charges dismissed again?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Florida.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes. He is in jail, refused plea & has date set for trial. Public defender is on vacation for weeks.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just wondering if a recorded statement from someone who was heavily medicated would be used to convict him or if we should try contacting the SA again to explain this.

Re: Juvenile Hawaii Law A 11-year-old girl relative and

Re: Juvenile Hawaii Law A 11-year-old girl relative and 13-year-old boy neighbor i guess i went into a vacant apartment. Supposedly the 13 year old broke the window to get access to apt. On the same day or a different day the 11 year old and 13 year old went into apartment. 13 year old opened up back sliding door. 11 year old followed. the 13 year old took Dawn and squeezed it all around the apartment, ceilings, etc. That's it. Apartment called cops. Should the 11 year old admit to this? As an adult an atty would say to remain silent right w/ cops? how about 11 year old? I'd like to let this be training moment for 11 year old. her errors doesn't seem that big to me. comments? I'm assuming if juvenile record it could be sealed? The rumor is the apartmet is claiming damages and robbery charges - I don't get it?

I had received a underage possession and consumption of

I had received a underage possession and consumption of alcohol ticket which was completely my fault and I will be pleading guilty when I go to court. Later that night my friend was lost and needed me to come get her because she was unfamiliar with the area since she was just visiting for the oktoberfest weekend in la crosse. As I was walking her back she was stumbling and cops had stopped us and I told them that I was walking her back. They asked if I had been drinking and I told them earlier in the day I had but I already received a underage ticket. The cop refused to listen and then proceeded to write out another ticket to me which was an underage possession and consumption again. I first don't understand why the ticket says I had possession of alcohol when I didn't have alcohol on me and also I told them I had been drinking that day and already had been caught. When I was breathalyzed obviously the alcohol had not left my system yet.

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person who has been arrested and charged with child cruelty? My step daughter spanked her 4 year old and it was video taped. I have not seen the video, but I was told the spanking was excessive. Bond was posted and paid on Monday, September 12 and I have been told every day this week the sheriff has not slowed down long enough to view the video. Therefore, the sheriff is continuing to hold her in the county jail. My step daughter is a first time offender and has never been in trouble, not even a speeding ticket. Can you please give me some advice. Oh, and I have been told by the public defender's office the sheriff is the one who decides on a court date. Is this true?

Would racial profiling apply here? The officer made no

Would racial profiling apply here?The officer made no mention, and they were already following the civilian. Also the officer admitted that both him and his partner were suppose to be about 2-3 blocks from the stop, because they were part of a Task Force brought to the area to help out with car robberies. Potential car robbery is the reason the officer and his partner gave for conducting the stop, and having looked at the officer when they were intentionally pursuing the civilian was not stated.
