My son just got his first DUI in Connecticut. I know the laws changed July 2015. He has his first hearing today....bond hearing?? and we do not know what to expect. Should he get a public defender? Should we get our own lawyer? The law is very definitive but he doesn't know if he should just plead guilty as we don't what a lawyer could do to help him. Will he have to do some jail time? Is this a felony and will he have to put it on his work applications for the rest of his life? Thank you

I have a question regarding a police report that was issued
I have a question regarding a police report that was issued against me and I am now going to be served with a citation. As of this time, nobody will tell me what I am being cited for, I have been told I have to wait until the citation comes in the mail. I was at a high school football game and an incident occurred where I told another parent that "she really needs to keep her drama to herself and stop harrassing other people". Upon which she turned the video on her phone and held her phone close to my face continually stating "keep going, go on I am videoing you...I am videoing you." This entire altercation happened at a high school football game, at the end of the game, after almost everyone had left. The incident lasted no longer than 5 minutes, did not draw a crowd of people, actually did not draw any crowd whatsoever other than her 2 friends that were with her. The police officer on duty at the football game was not even aware of the incident and did not find out about it until she filed a police report the following day. I did not threaten her physically in any way, I did not touch her, I did not touch her phone, Unfortunately my boyfriend walked over and she started pointing the phone in his face as well and he did tell her something to the effect of "get that BLEEP phone out of my BLEEP face or I am going to BLEEPING smash it" at which time he then walked away. She continued stating I am videoing you,,,,I am videoing you....at which point I walked away from her as well. She then immediately went onto FB and sent my boyfriends sister a message. This woman has a history of causing many issues among parents and I admit I should have not allowed her to get to me and I should not have said anything to her, I do not feel that I did anything "legally" wrong. What do I do?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: PA. Incident occurred on Friday October 7 and I was told that the report was not filed until October 9, although I do not know the exact date it was filed as I have not yet received the citiation.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: This particular individual is a passive aggressive bully. She has disliked me for over a year now simply because I had a t-shirt fundraiser for the football team (it was the 2nd year I had done this) and she (at that time) was the secretary of the booster club and told me that I had to go through her to publish anything for this sale. I did not do this, as I was told I did not have to. Further, there are other parents whom she has been harrassing (all of which know that this individual is mentally unstable so have not filed any charges). It happened to be homecoming weekend and she was angry because she felt that her house was not properly decorated (TP'd) and had a friend post this on facebook. That evening in particular, at the football game she got into a verbal confrontation with one of the parents that decorated her house for her two boys on the team. She quickly walked away and then sent a text to the parent stating "this isn't the itime or place to discuss this". I have 2 boys with disabilities and have a lot on my own plate, Previous to this isolated incident I stay out of the drama, but that particular night she pushed me to my limit. I was walking behind her to her left, she turned and saw me, nudged her friend and said something inaudible to me. Her friends responded and I heard her say "shhh be quiet we are being listened in on" and then she turned and was looking straight at me, at which time I stated she need to stop her drama, etc.
Asking for an incarcerated friend in Pennsylvania. His
Asking for an incarcerated friend in Pennsylvania. His appeal (1772 EDU 2015) was just denied by the 3 judge panel. How do we get an appeal by a 7 judge panel? His original appeals attorney was court appointed; how do we get an attorney for this appeal; can this so be court appointed? Or do we have to pay for an attorney? He is indigent. How do we get a copy of the DA's brief? Can we amend the appeal after reading the DA's brief? Should we go to the PA Supreme Court instead of the 7 judge panel? How do we get transcripts from the trial, pre-trial and sentencing hearing? My friend sent in a for,, but it was just sent back to him. The sentencing hearing is important because the judge said he allowed the chester county evidence (a previous conviction) to show intent but in the sentencing he said there was no negative intent.
I'm on a two year probation for marijuana possession. My
I'm on a two year probation for marijuana possession. My first drug test came back positive for opiates but I've never done opiates in my life nor have I done any drugs for at least a year prior to starting probation and nor have I done any while on probation. I'm dumb founded how this happened but it turned out to be morphine and codeine and after some research I've found plenty of scientific journals and .gov links stating that poppy seed consumption as little as one bagel can cause this to happen because poppy seeds contain both of these substances. So I'm 100% confident that's what caused my failed test. My question is once I go in front of a judge because my PO is claiming I violated my probation for opiate usage but honestly I've never done them, will I go to jail or will the judge believe me if I provide all the research I've found? This is cook county by the way.
