121 Questions Answered

Q. I was pulled over in one county but the municipal court on my ticket is from a different county. Is this possible?
A: There are a couple of possibilities, but a lawyer would have to look at the ticket to answer for sure. Could be an error by the citing officer. There are jurisdictions that 'share' a court, when one town doesn't want to maintain its own court. I have never heard of them being in separate counties, but there's no legal reason they couldn't be (that I know of). Basically, can't give much of an answer without reviewing the ticket.
Q. in a DV case simple assault so I need a lawyer? The victim damaged a fingernail while hitting me with a pillow.
A: Sounds like you need to talk to a lawyer directly, yes. The domestic violence accusation can have some far reaching consequences, so I would recommend you call a lawyer as soon as you can.
Q. What do the points mean in the legal system. My son has 3 but on paper it says 6
A: For felony crimes, the standard sentence range (where the judge is expected to sentence) is established by the number of "points" the defendant has. For example, any prior felony conviction generally counts as a point, and increased the standard sentence range. There are other factors in an individual case that can result in points being added to the score, including the current charges. Calculation of points is sometimes complicated. A lawyer would have to look at your son's specific history to calculate his "score" for sentencing. And it sometimes happens that two lawyers look at the same history and don't immediately agree on what the score is. So to answer your question a lawyer would have to review your son's individual case, it can't be answered without that information.
Q. Would a criminal history from 25-30 years ago prevent a person from taking the bar.All related to drug addiction
A: Not automatically. The bar association has rules regarding character and fitness: Look specifically at rule 21 to start. Here is a real life example of someone who did it: Also, you should talk to a lawyer right away about clearing some of your history, that would probably help. In some situations, a person can vacate one or two convictions off of their record. I'd be happy to talk to you about it. Good luck.
Q. how do we file a appeal if my sons attorney was disbarred right after trial by judge.Need some answers thanks
A: There is no one answer to this question, way too many variables (in my opinion). I would say call a lawyer asap and talk about the details of what happened, and he or she can talk you through some options.
Q. I am on municipal court probation i have a violation hearing does court legally have to allow me my attorney at hearing
A: You definitely have a right to a lawyer at every significant stage of proceedings, including probation violations.
Q. First time getting a ticket for illegal use of emergency equipment(Blue Uber Light)
A: What court is it in? We have some experience with those, and I can't imagine that the blue Uber light should be found to be a violation of that statute.
Q. What can i do? my 17yr old lives with 18yr boy friend but he is hitting her.
A: The law allows a parent to seek a protection order on behalf of a minor child. So you can go to the local courthouse and ask for a protection order that would prohibit him from contacting her, but that would only be valid until she is 18. You can of course report what is happening to local law enforcement and/or CPS and ask that an investigation be conducted. If you call the county district court clerk, they can direct you to how to file for a protection order if that is the way you decide to go. I don't know that any of these are the best long term solution to your situation, but they are available legal remedies.
Q. Dui. Deferred 2 years ago. last month. I had a slip up. got a dirty UA. Will they revoke?
A: First off, every court is different. I don't know what court your case is in, but GENERALLY the answer is no. Relapses are a part of recovery, particularly when someone goes through something like you have. As long as the treatment agency is aware and addressing it, then you should be fine. Make sure the court always has your current address, because if they did want to address it with you they send notice through the mail. You want to make sure you get that notice. Good luck.
