Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. What happened to the case when you were first charged back in 1999? When were you charged with it again? Were you charged by the same court with the identical charges and same set of facts?

zoey can u call me at(###) ###-####
Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 1 year ago

Calling is a premium service requiring an extra fee. We can continue here at no additional charge to you, but I don't have enough information.

Were you convicted the first time around? Was the second case identical in all respects to the first case? Did all of this happen 18 years ago?

hopeful ill find some one got to go i left my number for you to talk i dont have no 59.00 dollars sorry
Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 1 year ago

Sorry, but as I've said, phone calls are a paid premium service.

If the two cases were in every respect identical -- same exact charges, same exact time and place of occurrence, same exact incident -- then if you were convicted of the first case, you cannot be charged again by the same court.

If that's what happened to you, your lawyer could have argued for dismissal on double jeopardy grounds. If it was denied your attorney could have filed an appeal upon your conviction.

If your second case was unlawful, you could still challenge it on Constitutional grounds by bringing a motion before the judge asking that the conviction be overturned on double jeopardy grounds. An illegal sentence is never too old for a motion to overturn the conviction, so you can still bring it even after 18 years.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
