Legal Answers
11 Questions Answered
Q. What does it mean when someone turns himself into jail and the type of arrest is listed as commitment?
A: That sounds like a situation where a sentence including a jail or prison term was already pronounced or ordered by a judge and that all or some potion of that term remained to be served.
Q. I was recently stopped for failure to maintain lane and after brief explanation I was let go
A: The way you describe it, it sounds unlawful. What the cop has to say to justify the reasonableness of his decision to stop you twice is what matters. If you are charged, ask your attorney to investigate and file a motion to suppress. Whether or not you are charged, you may still file a complaint against the officer, but talk to an attorney first, so as not to incriminate yourself.
Q. How do I contest a very old Open Bench Warrant?
A: I would advise you to contact the public defender's office in the county where the warrant was issued. They may be able to assist you or refer you to someone in the area who can.
