9 Questions Answered
- Q. I wanna kno if u have a no grade felony does it drop to a misdemeanor and if so how long does it take?
- A: Ungraded felonies (rare) would not be reduced to misdemeanors except in certain cases with very specific facts and the District Attorney's consent. Usually, a defendant if guilty would argue for a plea that is less than the felony charge. Otherwise, if innocent, take it to trial and get acquitted on the felonies. I really cannot answer further with the limited facts you supplied. Consult a local attorney.
- Q. taking money from a.self checkout can I be charged criminally
- A: Yes. The charge is theft.
- Q. What are the chances of getting a charge of Int poss contr substance by per not reg dismissed or reduced?
- A: It would depend on the facts of the case. I cannot answer with the limited facts provided. In general, the DA's office usually pursues the possession charges, though. However, there could be suppression issues that an experienced attorney could find to suppress the controlled substances which would lead to a dismissal of the charges. The bigger problem for this person could be the probation violation detainer and re-sentence if he is found guilty or pleads to this new offense. This person definitely needs a attorney for representation. Some attorneys, like me, offer free consultations. Good luck to you both.
