7 Questions Answered

Q. Charged with 2 counts possession of a deadly weapon. One was dismissed the other felony was reduced to a misdemeanor can
A: Is the case still pending? Often times when you have a crime of violence or weapons, you will have a condition of probation be that you are not permitted to own or possess any deadly or dangerous weapons. If you have been placed on probation in the misdemeanor and that is a condition of probation, you are not permitted to own a firearm during the course of your probation.
Q. Just got arrested Can you be charged for something you were arrested for 6 months prior not charged for and released
A: Yes. The prosecution has 1 year to file charges on most misdemeanors and 3 years for most felony cases. Just because you were initially released when the prosecution failed to file in time, does not mean that they cannot later file charges.
Q. DUI case
A: Yes. She has the right to an attorney at her probation violation hearing. Probation is currently revoked and she should ask the Judge for a continuance in order to hire counsel. It sounds like the Judge found her in violation of probation without a formal hearing and without her admitting the violation.
Q. I have a driving on a suspended license in California but now live out of state. What are my options?
A: If your case is not in warrant status, you may hire a private attorney to handle the matter for you. There is a penal code section in CA that allows attorneys to appear on behalf of their clients without them being present.
Q. Cop suspects you under the influence searches you and finds drug paraphernalia and a hypodermic needle in you possession
A: I agree with Mr. Shapiro. This is a misdemeanor charge and therefore the prosecution has 1 year to file charges againt you.
Q. What if im accused of strong arm robbery and didnt do it and wasnt id
A: You will need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to defend against this Estes Robbery if you are facing criminal charges. This is a serious felony and only the proper representation will be able to properly assist you in defending against the charges.
Q. I recieved a misdemeanor D.V in 2004. I never cfinished D.V class due to financial hardship.what will happen?
A: It depends. Did you ever go back to court? If there is a warrant out for your arrest, you will need to first clear that warrant. You will then need to convince a Judge that you are now prepared to finish the classes. This will constitute a violation of your probation. You need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to negotiate the terms of your sentence on the probation violation. You are looking at up to a year in the county jail if you do not handle this correctly.
