Legal Advice- Immunity Using A Lawyer?
I'Ll Try To Make A Long Story Short.. If It Helps, I Live In Michigan (Not Sure If Laws Involving This Are Federal Or State)
The Story: I Was Charged Back In August For Assault.. The Day That It Happened, I Flead From The Scene, And Went To My Dads House To &Quot;Hide&Quot;. They Knew Exactly Where I Was.. They Showed Up About 15 Minutes After I Did. They Knocked On My Dads Door, And Smelled Marijuana. That Night I Went To Jail For Assault (Not Involving My Dad). The Very Next Day, The Officers Got A Search Warrant, Went Back To My Dads House And Found An Ounce Of Weed In The House, Along With 12 Pot Plants In His Back Yard. Thinking That I &Quot;Set Him Up&Quot;, My Dad Told The Officers It Was All Mine, Thinking He Wouldnt Get Charged With It. Needless To Say, He Got Charged Anyway, For Possession. A Month After His Sentencing, They Came After Me. Instead Of Possession, They Are Trying To Charge Me With Marijuana Manufacturing, Which Is A 4 Year Felony, And Not A Misdemeanor Like His. Anyways, The Only Evidence They Have In This Case Is My Dads Police Report Stating That Its Mine.
The Facts: I Currently Have A Court Appointed Attorney, As Most Of You May Know Is Total ****. He Has Stated If I Bring It To Trial, I Would Lose Since I Cannot Prove Anything. But This Is Not My Question.
My Question: My Dad And I Have Made Ammends, He Is Very Sorry About What He Said, Obviously.. He Has Already Been Charged, He'S Almost Off Probation From It (He Got 6 Months). He'S Not Worried About Getting Charged Again, Since Its Double Jeopardy Etc. He Is Worried About Coming To Court And Stating Something Different Then The Police Report. I Did Some Research, If He Were To Get Charged With A False Police Report, The Crime Is That Of The Charge. Which Would Be A Felony.

I Have Already Discussed With My &Quot;Lawyer&Quot; About My Dad Obtaining Immunity, Which Would Free Him Of Any Prosecution, He Has Stated That Only The Prosecutor Can Offer Immunity, And In A Case Such As Mine, There Is No Chance In Hell He Would Do That, Seeing As It Would Help Me And Not The Courts. They Obviously Want A Conviction. I Have Heard From A Few People (Which Is My Ultimate Question), That By Using A Lawyer To Make A Statement In Court, And If You Remain Silent, They Cannot Prosecute You For Anything The Lawyer Says. However, Someone Else Has Told Me, That They May Not Be Able To Prosecute You For What You Say In Court, But If The Police Report Were To Be Found False In Any Way, Shape Or Form, That They Can Go Back On The Police Report And Charge You Separately That Way. So My Final Question I Guess Is, Is There Any Loopholes, Or A Way That My Dad Can Come Into Court And Tell Them I Had Nothing To Do With His Plants Without Facing A Prosecution For A False Police Report? We Are Both Caught In A Catch-22..
"I have already discussed with my "lawyer" about my dad obtaining immunity.... I have heard from a few people"
Public defenders are, almost without exception, the most experienced trial lawyers in any jurisdiction. In addition, because they are up against the same DA's, in front of the same judges, every day, they know what DA will go for what plea bargain, or under what circumstances he will offer immunity.
I can guarantee you that his legal knowledge and advice is better than what you'll get from people whose knowledge is based on the fact that they've been caught themselves in the past.
"He has ALREADY been charged, he's almost off probation from it (he got 6 months). He's not worried about getting charged again, since its double jeopardy etc."
Wrong. It isn't double jeopardy, and he can be charged with a different crime from the one he was already charged with. If he'd been acquitted on the possession charge, or charged with manufacturing and acquitted, trying him again on those charges would be double jeopardy.
Now, normally a DA must charge all crimes arising from the "same series of bad acts" at one time. This would usually mean that he couldn't charge your father with possession, then come back later and charge him with manufacturing. BUT... When the decision not to charge a more serious crime was based on the accused's own untrue statements, that is an exception to that rule.
Because the DA decided not to charge him with manufacturing based on his testimony that the plants were yours, if the DA becomes satisfied that he lied, and the plants WERE his, the 'same series of bad acts' rule is waived, and your father can be charged with the manufacturing. (AND the false police report)
Your father cannot testify at your trial through a lawyer so as to avoid having to perjure himself, or avoid admitting that he perjured himself in the police report. "You" cannot be required to testify at your own trial, and under some circumstances you can have your lawyer make a statement. however, a lawyer cannot make a statement that he knows, or believes, to be false.
If the DA wants your fathers testimony then he will subpoena him, and put him on the stand. Once there he has three choices.
1) He can testify that the plants were yours. With your own father telling the jury that, you'll probably be convicted.
2) He can admit that they were his. If the jury believes him, you will likely be acquitted. The DA will then almost certainly charge him with manufacturing, and probably with the false police report as well.
3) He can take the 5th, and refuse to testify on the grounds that his testimony might incriminate himself. The DA will introduce the police report as a prior inconsistant statement, since it did 'not' incriminate him. The jury might then convict or acquit, based on what they believe is true.
Be aware that if he takes the fifth, then even if you are convicted, nothing stops the DA from deciding that the two of you were both involved in growing the plants, and charging him anyway.
You are right about one thing, though. The DA wants a conviction. He most likely doesn't really care whether he hangs the plants on you, or on your father, so long as he gets one of you. He's not going to allow you to get off on the basis that the plants were your Dads without then hanging them on him.
Do You Think That People That Have A Dwi Arrest Are Generally Sketchy Or It Depends On Other Circumstances?
I Had One 10 Years Ago, Right Out Of College. Since Then, I Have Gotten An Mba And Earn Six Figures In A Corporate Job And Have Two Kids And A Wife. I Rarely Have More Than One Drink A Week As Getting Drunk, To Me, Was Just A &Quot;College Thing&Quot;
In A Case Like This, Am I A Sketchy Person?
Is This A Really Bad Thing, Could It Be A Problem In The Future, As Far As Climbing Further Up The Corporate Ladder?
your dwi and your success have nothing to do with each other.
one would think that with all that education you should know the answer to your own question. in fact if you were paying attention in your dwi classes you would know that a dwi can happen to anyone AND you don't even need to be drunk to get one.
your one drink a week can land you in the hooskow just as quick. all it takes is one drink to get you a dwi if you are involved in ANY kind of accident (even if it is not your fault it will suddely become your fault) you don't even need to be at .08 to get a dwi. .01 will do it if there is an accident involved.
so no it does not mean a person is sketchy. it can and does happen to everyone. including the cop who got pulled over in roseville california the other day. yup got his just desserts

Car Accident Injury Settlement?
I Was In A Car Accident In March Of This Year. I Had A Compression Fracture On My T-11 Vertabrae Along With Some Soft Tissue Damage To My Lower Back. I Went Through 3 Weeks Of Physical Therapy, A Er Visit Were They Took Xrays, Two Follow Up Appointments And Was Prescribed Conflicting Medication (Vicodin And Soma Along With Vimovo. Anyone Who Knows Medication Know That Vicodin And Soma Should Not Be Taken Together). I Still Have Pain Every Now And Then. I Stopeed Treatment Because They Places I Went Started To Ask For Money Up Front Which I Just Dont Have. I Talked With A Legal Consultant About Options I Have As The Insurance Company (Mercury) Should Be Calling Me Tomorrow For An Offer. The Conultant Says &Quot; Mercury Insurance Is Very Notorious For Giving Very Low Numbers. They Will Probably Start With A Little Below $10,000.&Quot; I Asked Him If I Was To Take It To Court What Am I Looking At. He Responded &Quot;If I Was To Take It To Court I Would Go For No Less Then $100,000.&Quot; Now I Know That Is Most Likely A Sales Pitch Number To Have Me Choose Him. But What I Am Looking Into Here Is What Should I Be Looking For? What Number Is A Real Number That I Should Be Negotiating For?
What you should ask for depends on what your specific circumstances. 3 weeks of physical therapy plus an ER visit, xrays, etc can cost a lot if you don't have medical insurance. If you used your medical insurance then you are only entitled to what you put out of your pocket. Then there's the issue of your car. I will assume that the accident was not your fault. If you had your insurance take care of your car then you are entitled to the deductible you paid. Now lets talk about you. Are you feeling 100 percent again or has this injury caused you to not be able to work or do what you normally do. This is definitely worth something and only you can answer that question. Do you plan on continuing physical therapy? If so that's gotta be paid for so I would ask for enough to cover it until you make a full recovery. These are the things that you should consider when talking to the insurance agent. Don't forget pain and suffering, that's worth something too. Lawyers ask for a lot because they take at least a third of what the settlement is. Is your case worth 100,000? Only you can answer that but from what you have said in your question I would ask for at least half that.
