Now I am 17 almost 18 in 3 months and he just. Turned 21. Is there anything I can do legally to have these charges dropped? My parents are pushing it and keep saying its up to the state, but they just want him to be punished. I live in the state of Texas and he is currently being charged with Kidnapping since we left texas and went to Tennessee. We started dating when he was 18 and I was 15.

Can you explain to me the meaning of NRS 178.556(1) Nevada Speedy Trial? It sounds to me that the charges against my friend can be dismissed because they did not set the court date within 60 days. Is that what it's meant. Please advise. Thanks.

I have a friend, who has been in jail since 3/10/2016 for something that he said he did not do. I visited him today through Iwebvisit.com and he asked to help him to find out about his rights of "SPEEDY TRIAL". He has been held in jail for more than 6 months and his assigned attorney did not make contact with him for almost 50 days. He left several voice messages for the assigned defend attorney but his attorney did not return his calls. Please advise what my friend should do to get SPEEDY Trial Law enforced. All he needs is someone to set a court date so that he can have a peace of mind to stay in jail to wait for that moments to prove he is innocent in front of the judge.

Prostitute lied my son tried to kidnap her. He was arrested

My son was arrested due to being lied on by a prostitute. She said he tried to kidnap her and had a gun but no gun was found, and rob her. What are his chances. If she doesn't show up for court or found lying what will happen to my son.This happened in California.I have not talked to a lawyer yet.He does have a prior record in which I pray doesn't get held against him. Bail is 1,000,000.00. He goes back to court on 9/16. There were no marks on her. He said she jumped out of the car in front of the police and started saying this. He didn't try to run and co-operated with the police. But still was taken into custody. They didn't even read his rights until he got to jail.
