Legal Answers
33 Questions Answered

Q. Can a defendant be acquitted based on perjury of inconsistent statement.
A: A witness who makes an inconsistent statement on the witness stand that goes against prior statements can and should be subject to impeachment by a defense attorney during cross-examination. The defense attorney can then argue that the witness should not be believed because they made inconsistent statements. It is then up to the jury to decide how much weight to give to the witness's testimony. If a witness lies on the stand, however, that alone is usually not a reason for an outright acquittal by the judge unless there are other factors involved. If the defendant has already been convicted at trial, then you have the possibility of appealing through either a direct appeal or a petition for post-conviction relief.
Q. If I violated Probation and am upsconded would now be a good time to turn myself in?
A: Now would probably be a better time than any other that I can think of. The court system is trying to keep people out of jail at the moment, and therefore they may be more likely to reinstate you on probation than to revoke it. Of course, that is assuming all other things being equal. More information would be needed to give you an assessment, but a defense attorney can file a motion to quash your outstanding warrant and get a probation violation hearing set telephonically. Its certainly worth discussing with an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Q. My husband's public defender for criminal charges filled in for a coworker to defend a co-defendent in my husband's case
A: When there is a conflict of interest with the Public Defender's Office, then an attorney from the Legal Defender's Office will usually be appointed. The Legal Defender's Office also provides court-appointed attorneys to defendants who financially qualify. This is an issue that should be addressed with your husband's current attorney and potentially the court.
