Legal Answers
743 Questions Answered
Q. What is the length of jail time for stealing a dirtbike in Mississippi
A: This is a little bit of a tricky question. In Mississippi, the length of jail time really depends on the value of the dirt bike. Depending on the circumstances, it could also be worked out to where a person may not have to serve any sort of jail time, and instead the person can participate in a special program to avoid jail and possibly ensure that this does not go on their record. Your best bet is going to be to get with an experienced criminal defense lawyer to discuss the case and determine the best course of action. Most law firms, including my own, offer free consultations to see what can be done to help you out.
Q. I would like to know how to file motion of dismissal after I've not been indicted in 2 years on C/S charge in 9/21
A: The process of filing a motion to dismiss is relatively simple. What you will need to do, assuming you do this pro se, is just file the motion in the court where the matter is pending, and refer to the various Barker factors (time since arrest, whether the right to speedy trial was invoked, the reason for the delay, and prejudicial effect).
Q. I was attacked, unprovoked with a golf club at a friend's residence, by a mutual friend, what can I do
A: If you were assaulted, then you have a right to go press charges against the person at a local municipal or justice court. There is also the possibility of civil liability, if the attack ended in injuries that required you to see medical treatment.
