Some Legal Advice Please And Thank You.?
I Am 18 Years Of Age, And Before This I Have Never Been In Any Trouble With The Law. I Was Arrested For Lying To A Police Officer And Lying On Legal Documents. I Am In The State Of Georgia, And I Lied Because I Was Robbed Of Marijuana And I Told The Police I Was Robbed Of Money. I Called The Police Because I Was In Need Of Medical Attention. I Can Not Afford A Lawyer, And I Am Not Fully Aware Of My Rights. I Was Wondering How Serious Of A Crime This Is, And What Can I Do To Keep From Going To Jail?
Chances are fairly good you would not get any jail time for this offense. Frankly, jails are over crowded and they simply don't have room for a first time, non-violent offender.
As far as your rights? You have the right to remain silent. Exercise that right and don't discuss this with anyone. If you are charged (meaning you get a court date), you will go to court and plead "not guilty." Then you will probably have the opportunity to apply for a public defender. If you get an envelope from the prosecutor's office that offers you something like a "deferred prosecution" you should take the paperwork to the public defender's office and apply for assistance. You need to fully understand the ramifications of pleading guilty to this offense.
That you will not do any jail time is the least of your worries - long term, that is. Providing false information to a police office and lying on a legal document is a crime of moral turpitude. This will have serious and potentially life long ramifications for you. You will probably NEVER be able to get a job that requires any type of security clearance or background investigation. In a he said/she said situation in court (small claims court, divorce court, etc.), your word will simply not be good enough.
Need Attorney Advice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?
I Am 16 Years Old And I Buy And Resell Electronics On Craigslist.
I Bought A Laptop From Someone That Was Password Locked And Had No Charger.
I Got A Charger, Reset The Password And Listed It On Craigslist.
Apparently I Sold It Back To The Original Owner Who Had It Stolen From Him.
A Few Hours Later As I Am Driving I Get Pulled Over And Arrested For Possession Of Stolen Property.
I Explained The Story To The Cops And I Voluntarily Let Them Search My Car And I Return The Money For The Laptop.
The Police Said That They Put In The Report That I Co-Operated.
Now I Am Faced With Trafficking Stolen Property In The First Degree.
I Still Had The Address Of The Guy I Bought It From And I Gave That To The Police.
My Court Date Is In 2 Weeks, In The Mean Time I Am Sure That There Will Be An Investigation.
Now, My Question Is That Should I Pay For An Attorney Or Will A Public One Be Enough?
I Also Heard That You Can Get Your Record Sealed At 18?
I Just Need Some Advice. Thanks Ahead Of Time.
It sounds like you are doing your best to cooperate fully and didn't intend to do anything improper. Unfortunately, I believe that the stolen property charge is a strict liability crime, that is, one that applies regardless of your intentions. Nevertheless, your good will can only help you.
I do think that you should plan to find an attorney. If you qualify for a public defender, they generally are quite good, although your mileage may vary based on where you live. Most public defenders have a great deal of courtroom experience and often are quite skilled. I can't pretend to give you expert legal advice, but it doesn't sound like your case is terribly complex. You shouldn't go it alone, but a solid public defender probably will be able to do right by you.
I'm sorry that you're stuck in an unfortunate position here, and I hope it works out all right. Good luck.
Does Usa Justice System Provide Free Lawyers?
If I Own A Publishing House In The Usa That Has Put Out A Book About Some Religious Organization That Is Now Suing Me For The Defamation Of A Character In That Book, And I Have No Money To Afford A Lawyer, Can I Have A Right For A Free Layer Then?
In this particular case, no, you do not have "a right for a free lawyer".
You only are eligible for a public defender (free lawyer) if you are facing criminal prosecution from the Government. This is a private civil lawsuit. If you want a lawyer, you have to hire one. You have no right to a free lawyer when being sued.
Where To Find A Lawyer That Deals With Identity Theft?
I Live In St.Louis, Mo And Need A Lawyer That Deals With Identity Theft. I Have Had My Licsense Suspended Due To Someone Having A Wreck And Saying They Were Me. No Police Report, I Have Never Been Served Papers. There Was A Court Date Where I Never Showed Up Due To Not Knowing, With A Decision Against Me, Which Wants Me To Pay $5000 In Damages To Reinstate My Licsense . I Am Having Trouble Getting Work Due To The Suspended Liscense. I Didnt Do Anything, I Have Insurance And Had No Wrecks In Years. How Do I Fix My Life?
You need to start with your insurance company. If someone is claiming to be you, the chances are that your insurance records will show up, and they may get a claim for an accident that you were not involved in. They need to be made aware of the problem immediately.
In addition, since their interests are the same as yours here (you don't want a claim and they don't to be asked to pay a claim), they may be willing to provide you with assistance in cleaning up your records, which would save you the cost of attorney's fees.
If you do hire an attorney, anyone who is accustomed to defending motor vehicle violations (dui, speeding tickets, etc.) should be able to handle this for you. All you would really need is someone who knows his way around the motor vehicle department offices. But first see if your insurance company can help.
Dwi Help Between New Jersey And Texas! Will My New Jersey Conviction Be Discovered By Texas?
I Have A Dwi Conviction In Nj And Received One In Tx-- Awaiting A Court Date.. Will My Record From The Previous State Show Up? I Have An Attorney But I Don'T Want The Information To Come Out If Possible--What A Nightmare:(
It is highly probable that your NJ conviction will show up. Most states report all criminal convictions to the FBI thorugh their computerized criminal history files. The D.A. will run you through this and find the conviction.
And here is why it is importnat for you to make sure your defense attorney knows. Texas law allows the use of DWI convictions from other states to upgrade the penalty of the Texas DWI conviction. The attached link shows that your second DWI (this is at least your second now) has a minimum time of 30 days in jail. Note the definition to include the other state conviction in it. You may be able to get a plea bargain if your defense attorney knows, but if he is surprised, you will get the shaft.
Question Regarding Drinking And Driving Laws In The U.S.?
I Have Been Told That If Anyone Under 21 Takes A Breathalyzer Test And Blows Anything Above 0.01, Then Get A Dui. But I'Ve Started To Wonder: Let'S Say Someone Who Is Under 21 In The United States Has A Beer Or Two To Drink, Waits Several Hours Until His/Her Blood Alcohol Level Reduces Entirely, Then Drives Somewhere; If This Driver Was To Be Pulled Over For Something And The Officer Smelled Beer In The Driver'S Breath, Yet The Driver Submits To And Passes A Breathalyzer Test, Could They Still Get A Dui?
Legal limit in most all states is .08 If you ain't at that you ain't drunk and will just win in court. However, you may get a different ticket for underage drinking except in Louisana or Wisconsin. Where you can legally drink if you are over 18 in LA or accompanied by a parent in Wis.
Some states issue a driving while ability impaired, lesser charge than drunk driving and that kicks in about .05
