What Criminal Charge Is She Facing?
So A Couple Weeks Ago My Friend Was Arrested For Theft. The Story As I Know It Is A Friend Of Hers Robbed Someone. Packed Things In A Bag And In Pockets Then Got In My Friends Car. My Friend And Her Fiance Claim They Knew Nothing Until After The Fact. They All Ended Up Arrested For Theft. The Police Told Her If She Worked With Them They Would Lower The Charge To Being An Accessory. Also A Bowl With Week Res Was Found Along With A Bong. She Is In Md. What Kind Of Charges Would She Be Facing And What The Punishment For That.
In MD, residue of marijuana is still Possession of Marijuana, however weak, and the Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (the bong) get grouped together in that charge, both misdemeanors, probation at most unless she has a history.
The rest of your question is a little harder because of what 'robbed someone' means. It sounds like you are describing more of a "burglary". That is that dude entered someplace he wasn't supposed to be without permission and stole items belonging to someone else. Pretty large felony and hes facing 5-20 depending on whether someone was home or he was armed. Your friend has a slightly better chance of saying they didn't know what was going on, but it really looks like a 'getaway driver' scenario to me...and a jury as well.
Now if dude actually "robbed" someone, that is taking property directly from a persons immediate control through force, fear, stealth, or threat of violence while armed or unarmed, it will be harder for you friend to protest her innocence. You can't really be sitting in a car watching someone get robbed and not know whats going on, much less driving away with the robber and saying, "What? It all looked innocent to me!" If that was the case, shes an accomplice meaning she deserves the same sentence as the guy who went hands on to do the crime. Not good, that's also a felony, with 5-20 depending on weapons or injury to victim.
If she's really lucky, the dude "just" broke into a car or took something from a place where he was legally allowed to be, and is only being charged with theft. Theft is taking property that is not in someones immediate control without right with the intent of depriving the lawful owner of that same property.
Depending on the dollar amount of the property taken, it can be a misdemeanor or a felony and your friend has a fair chance of protesting her innocence.
All that being said, years of experience tells me that this crime was done in order to obtain drugs, or to steal property to sell for drug money and your friend and her fiance were in on the whole thing or had a good idea of what the dude they were giving a ride too was up too. They have any money problems? Have they started acting a little different or gotten a new contact? Weed is whatever, but if they have started messing with something harder, it might have grabbed onto them. If they are going this messed up for weed money alone, I don't see there relationship outlasting their drug habit.
If your friend has a chance of turning out alright, tell her and her fiance to cooperate and help the police nail the main guy and they should be able to get probation. Watch yourself around her, she's not telling you the whole truth either.
I Need Help Finding A Lawyer!?
Okay As Of Last Year My Mother Was Hit By A Car...And Killed. The Kid Who Was Driving The Car 19Yr Old In A Bmw ... Struck Her. The Street Lights Were Not Working Where The Accident Happened. There Was Skid Marks Down The Road, She Was Thrown 25+ Feet From The Site Where She Was Hit. The Police Let The Kid Off Free, No Tickets Nothing. But As Of Yesterday, They Would Not Let Me Get The Police Report. I Was Told That An Attorney Would Be The Only Person Available To Get It.
My Grandparents Had To Pay $19,000 For Her Funeral Expenses. Shouldnt The Insurance Have Covered It?
Anyways Im Located In Connecticut. I'M Not Sure What Kind Of Lawyer I Would Need To Find. Im Looking Within The Watertown/Waterbury/Naugatuck ... And Surrounding Areas. Please Help Me!!! I Really Would Like Justice. Im Not Money Hungry, I Just Want My Grandparents To Get Their Money Back, Im Not Trying To Be Selfish!
E-mail or write to the lawyer referral program of the county bar association where you're looking. Also talk to the Legal Aid office there. It could be where you are, but better where the accident was. Remember that, as a rule, you have to sue where the defendant is located, and the lawyer has to be admitted to the bar in that state. Are you in CT but the accident happened in NY?
You will need a tort lawyer - wrongful death. There may also be some official misconduct involved - it looks suspicious that the police let the kid off without any charges, and that they refused to give you the report. Such reports are public records, and there is a right, but never a requirement that you have a lawyer. Don't believe anyone who tells you anything different. Are the kid's parents important? Judging by the car, at least rich. Brace yourself for an uphill battle.
You can try to obtain a copy of the police report by writing to the town clerk. You can also try to obtain any records of criminal charges, or their absence, from the municipal court, and from the criminal part or division of the county court. There may be a charge for copying.

Best Type Of Law To Practice?
I Always Hear About How Some Lawyers Are Miserable, I Mean Working 80 Hours A Week And Defending Crack Dealers But On The Other Hand I Always Hear About Super Happy Lawyers Who Gets The Big Bucks And Still Live A Good Social Life.
There´S Must Be Something About The Type Of Law They Practice In.
So Lawyers, Whats The Best Type Of Law To Practice. (Make It A Top 5 If Its Possible).
To answer your last question first, and I do this as a prior Legal Secretary/Clerk. Those who are happy AND get the big bucks have law clerks/paralegals, etc. that do MUCH of the research and briefing for them. They charge their client their hourly rate usually $250 plus, while the SECS get paid anywhere from $15 to $22 per hour.
As for the type of law to practice that depends on, (if you want to be good at what you do) your passion for a particular area of law.
Criminal Law is still the fastest growing while corporate law is the most lucrative. Employment Law is on the rise of popularity as well. So, it just depends. Tax Law is interesting in that 93 Million Americans do not pay their federal taxes.
Looking For &Quot;Paid To Ask Lawyer Expert&Quot; Questions Website?
I Am Looking For A Website Similar To Justanswer. Particular A Site That Lets You Pay A Subscription Fee To Answer Unlimited Amount Of Questions For The Duration Of The Subscription.
Justanswer Won'T Work For Me As I Am Using These Sites For Research Papers And I Would Need To Cite References Of How I Received The Information. Most Lawyers On Justanswer Use A Pen Name.
I Was Looking At Lawguru But They Don'T Have A Subscription Plan For People Asking Lots Of Questions.
Thank In Advance.
Most lawyers will be able to give you answers that cite to another authority, rather than having to cite the lawyer's opinion itself. Just be sure you don't end up plagiarizing in the process, which can be easy to do by accident when looking at someone else's analysis of sources that you are citing.
