Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered

Q. What is the maximum penalty in NM for attempting to elude and failure to comply to probation orders?
A: You will need to sit down and talk with an attorney to review, assess and advise on any specific case. He/she would need to review the specifics of the plea agreement that placed the person on probation as well as the specifics of any new allegations. The attorney would also need to know the individuals criminal history. Seek advise of counsel who can assess the specifics of the case. Good luck.
Q. Is there a statue of limitations on probation violations in New Mexico.
A: I would recommend that you talk directly to an attorney who can review and assess the specifics of the case. I will offer a very generic answer given the following assumed facts: 1. In New Mexico State court 2. The probationer is an adult 3. The probationary period expired PRIOR to the court issuing a bench warrant Assuming the above facts, the court would not have jurisdiction to issue the bench warrant after the probationary period has expired. Once again, you would need to consult with an attorney and have him or her file the necessary motion(s). Good luck
Q. I have a standing criminal pretrial order that was filed march 3 2017. And idk what it is or why
A: I do not believe there is a way to answer your question without actually reviewed your specific order. In general, a pretrial order establishes deadlines for discovery, motions, interviews (if in state court), plea deadlines and other deadlines in preparation for moving the case towards trial. You need to talk to an attorney who can review your situation specifically. Good luck.
