Can You Be A Prosecuting And Defense Attorney?
Not In The Same Case, Of Course! Lol (Although That Would Be Interesting)
I'Ve Been Watching A Lot Of Pheonix Wright (Not Playing, Because I'M Poor) Games Lately, And I'Ve Just Been Wondering If You Could Have Both Jobs. Ie. Sometimes You Defend And Other Times You Prosecute.
Sorry If This Is A Weird Question, This Is What I Think About.
It would be impossible to be both a prosecutor and defense attorney in the same jurisdiction at the same time. Ethical obligations would not allow it. As a prosecutor you would be privy to information that a defense attorney would not normally be privy to, and vice versa.
Generally, being a prosecutor is a full time job that would not allow you to be a defense attorney as well. However, there are part-time prosecutor positions that afford attorney's the opportunity to do private work on the side. Most often, those part time prosecutors practice civil law as well (ex. wills, estates, elder law, etc.).
It is conceivable that one could be a part time prosecutor in one jurisdiction and do some criminal defense work in another jurisdiction. I guess one could work part time as a US attorney, prosecuting federal crimes and still do some private criminal defense at the local level, for example.
Ok, I Was Arrested On October 3Rd For Domectic Violence And Possesion Of Analogues, The Analogue Was Xanax, Which Was Given To Me By My Mother For A Panic Attack, But The Police Took Me In For That, Which Is Understandable Due To It Not Being My Prescription, Because Mine Ran Out And Wasn't Filled Yet, But The Domesti Violence Was For Me Pushing My Father A Month Before, The Officers Asked If I Ever Done Anything And My Father Just Said He Pushed Me, And Said It Was A Month Prior, But They Still Arrested Me For It, Is It Legal To Do So? Or What? I'm Now On Probation For A Year, Pleaded No Contest For The Possession, Which Was Dropped To Attempted Possesion And Plead Guilty To The Domestic, Hich Will Now Remain On My Record, Any Help To Resolve This And Possibly Have It Removed Would Be Greatful.
Well, it is a little too late to figure out what you can do now as you've already plead and you're on probation. They can arrest for a push or a shove a month prior, but it's not typical unless your dad wanted to press charges. (At least that's what I've experienced here in CA-- there needs to be visible proof something happened like bruises or scratches.) You should talk to a lawyer about the possibility of getting your record sealed or expunged; if you don't currently have one, you can try the Legal Aid Society. Word to the wise-- law enforcement prosecutes elder abuse just as fiercely as child abuse in some areas, and it doesn't have to be physical violence (financial abuse counts as well) so you may want to either improve your relationship with your dad or stay away for a bit.
My Friends Broke Bus Windows And Caused $40,000 Worth Of Damage. The Cops Interigated Me And I Asked Them If My Friends Would Be Arrested. They Said They Wont Be Arrested If The Coraporate. Is This True?? Did They Lie? Is There Any Way To Get Them Out Of This? What Would The Punishment Be? I Need As Much Information I Can Get. Please Help Me. Don'T Judge. Thank You.
It is called destruction of private property. And at 40,000.00 that could constitute a Felony. They are in trouble and if you had anything to do with it, you also. Even as a bystander you could be implicated. You need to come clean now. Talk to the Parents. Get a lawyer and legal advice now. I am sure there will be other charges. This is serious. And please do not runaway. It will make things 10 times worse. When the police talk to the other ones involved they will point the finger at each other including you so that they look better in the eye's of the police.No honor among thieves. Hang in there.
What is going to happen. They will gather all the facts. Then they will go the the prosecuting attorney and certify charges and present it to a judge or the magistrate to issue a bench warrant for the arrest of all that were involved. They will turn to the judge for a bond hearing. If you are a juvenile they can hold you till trial or they will ask for a bond. "Bail" till trial. That means someone must come up with money to get the person out of jail. Sometimes they will release you on you're own reconnaissance which means you are released to the parents. they will do a back ground cheack to see if they have been in trouble before. They can talk to the school to see about attendence/ grades. They can talk to the neighbors. Another words nothing is safe when they get on youre case.
How Much Representation Does A Common Person Get In The Formation Of These Laws, Here In America Our Representatives Hardly Represent Their Constituencies, Why Should I Ever Respect Theses Laws? Sounds Like Just An Excuse To Tax The Worker For The Rich To Make More Money, Am I Wrong? If Yes You Better State Why Without Some Dumb Answer Like Because, It Is Called Backing Up Your Point With A Basis.
International law is not created by "common" people as you put it, but it is very important, as it legislates relations between states, and also statutes/charters of international organizations are a part of it.
It is certainly not a waste of your money: For instance it is often argued that forcing the communist states to sign the Declaration of Human Rights in the seventies encouraged civil groups in these states and helped end Cold War. Lives of millions of people were effected. Bans on certain kinds of weapons, landmines, nuclear proliferation, these laws effect the relations between nations. So do trade agreements, they determine often the degree to which a country is open to international trade, e.g. how many Japanese cars can be imported to the US annually and such. They determine who can enter for example European Union without a visa. They handle if you can have a dual citizenship, should you decide to leave your country. There is international law that defines who terrorist is versus a legitimate freedom fighter. They are the laws that determine when to use an embargo against a UN member state. They are the laws that ideally, strive to make a better world for the mankind: as international law is the basis for tribunals for war criminals such as the villains from Kosovo or Rwanda. So no, it is not a waste of taxpayers money, and even though they may not be tangible in your daily life, they have an impact on it.
What Is The Benefit Of Dividing Canadian Law Into Civil Law And Criminal Law?
I Was Also Wondering If The Court Procedure For The Civil Law Only Has The Defendant, Plaintiff, And The Judge, Or If It Also Has The Prosecution Like In The Courts For Criminal Law?
Criminal law has a very different purpose than other sorts of law. We as a society have determined that there are some acts so undesireable that people who commit them should be punished. The criminal justice system is designed to see appropriate punishments administered. It's about the blameworthiness of the criminal.
The civil courts, on the other hand, are designed to provide a remedy to individuals who have been wronged. Under most circumstances, it's fundamentally about the entitlements of the plaintiff.
Under the vast majority of circumstances, there's nobody prosecuting anything in a civil court. You're not there because an offence has been committed.
Mind you, there are also "quasi-criminal" laws in Canada, usually enacted by the Province. The Provinces don't have the constitutional power to enact criminal laws; however, they are empowered to regulate a great many things. Thus, they regulate your activities on the highway...so when you're charged with going 130kph in a 100 zone, it's not strictly a criminal offence, though you will be prosecuted for it in a model very similar to the criminal model.
Under 18 Assault/ Battery Charges?
Im A 16 Year Old Female.
Tomorrow Im Probably Going To Be Getting In A Fight With A Girl Who Beat Me Up A Few Months Ago. This Is My First Chance To Redeem Myself. At The Last Fight I Said I Was Gonna Call The Cops But Later Didnt Cause My Boyfriend Talked Me Out Of It.
And Since She Won She Didnt Call The Cops.
But Tomorrow, I Know Ill Win.
And I Have A Feeling Shes Gonna Call The Cops
My Question Is What Would The Charge (If Any) Be On Eiter Of Us?
And Would That Be A Misdemeanor Or Something More?
Note: Ive Been Arrested Before
Wow. You would be so incredibly stupid to attack someone tomorrow or ever. Preschoolers understand that you are required to keep your hands to yourself.
Oh yes, it will be something more than a misdemeanor - because you are PLANNING this. This isn't going to be a spur of the moment situation. You are plotting and planning the assault and battery of this other person. Even if you lose the fight tomorrow, you would still be facing a felony charge.
And if you think that because you're a minor that your record gets wiped clean - you'd better think again. In most states, felonies committed by a minor don't automatically get sealed. In my state, you would have to wait ten years after you were completely done with your probation, etc. to APPLY to get your record sealed. This means you would have a felony conviction on your record until you were 28 - and that only assumes that you are able to stay out of trouble for that ten year period. And you can kiss college and good jobs goodbye when you have a felony conviction for assault.
Also, are you hoping to get married and have children some day? The divorce rate is about 50% so it is very likely that you will be in a custody battle with your future ex-husband over your children. You had better believe that an assault and battery conviction will be used against you for the rest of your life.
