Legal Answers
11 Questions Answered

Q. is • 4573 PC - BRING CNTL SUB/ETC JAIL and • BRING CNTL SUB/ETC JAIL - F the same charge?
A: It sure sounds like they are the same charges. The only way to know for sure what someone is charged with is to see the actual complaint which is the formal list of charges.
Q. What are the general ramifications of the following charges:
A: Count 1 is a strike felony. You might want to make an appointment with a local lawyer.
Q. My wife gave statements to the police that were 100% false. I was charged with 273.5 (a) p.c. and 422 p.c. what do i do
A: Often what we do in this situation is wait until your wife is no longer mad at you and then have her interviewed by a private investigator. We submit the new statement to law enforcement or the prosecutor and they then realize they have a problem with their case. Sometimes I even recommend two lawyers: One for you and one for your wife. Please talk to a competent criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Whatever you do, do not violate any criminal protective orders or civil restraining orders which may be in place. Also, don't try and influence your wife's actions. This only serves to make things worse. Be nice, and talk to lawyer.
Q. any criminal defense attorneys in the San Bernadino county area that would take on a capital murder case probono
A: The answer to this question is the office of the public defender. They have the manpower, the resources, the training and the ability to handle the case. Best of luck with your situation.
Q. Are the police able to get onto my phone without my passcode? What are they allowed to look at?
A: Generally, a warrant is required to access a cellular phone here in California. Once they get a warrant to search the phone, they can look at anything that leads to evidence in their case or evidence of a crime.
Q. On Saturday me and my husband got into an argument that got out of and I sprayed him with pepper spray. Fist offense.
A: You should not post any potentially incriminating statements on public forums. Please talk to a criminal defense attorney in a confidential setting. I certainly gave some other thoughts for you as well as questions.
Q. If a case was dropped against my co defendant with a motion to supress evidencee when can I file a motion to dismiss
A: Speak to your lawyer about this. You may or may not have standing to bring such a motion. If you have standing, it sounds like the motion should have been brought already. If you lack standing, maybe you can use the unlawful search to your advantage in settlement negotiations. Again, you should speak to your lawyer about this. If you don't have a lawyer, call a lawyer immediately.
Q. Is it a crime to walk into a tow yard and retrieve your vehicle?
A: It is likely both. No more admissions on public forums. Please call or email a lawyer directly to discuss this situation in a confidential manner.
Q. What will happen if a 16 year old gets charged with assualt and battery on an 8yrd
A: What happens will likely depend upon the extent of the injuries and whether or not the 16 year old has any criminal history. I regret that I do not have enough information to make an accurate assessment of what may happen. Please do not discuss the case with anyone except an experienced criminal defense attorney.
