Minnesota and Minnesota I was arrested the next morning after the incident.. its been months and havent had any contact

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

We have a jury trial coming up, and he doesn't want to testity but the prosecution is making him i never got to say my side of the story once yet didn't want to get so many mutual friends involved, but sounds like the prosecution is stirring things up so we have no choice

As it's already going to Jury Trial, I haven't spoke with a lawyer yet. Is there anyway to get the trial dismissed or postponed? We have so many mutual friends this trial will make things worse for everyone.

First, many cases settle. Second, an adjournment is possible where witnesses need it and should be requested through the prosecutor Office usually in advance! Can also have a lawyer handle that including testimony prep. martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options. Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”
