Q: 

Where Do I Turn?

A:  "I was arrested, but never arraigned." That usually means the state refused to prosecute at that time. "No grand jury has heard my case, there have been no hearings, nor will the district attorney drop the charge." If you don't have pending court dates, there's nothing to drop. The event would be in the investigative stage, or closed, and they don't have to tell you what is going on. "The school board found the charges false, but demanded my resignation." If you had contracted employment, consult an attorney. "There has been no investigation by the DA." First, that's because cops investigate stuff, not the...

How to move for Dismissal?

A:  you kidnapped a woman and took her across state lines. you''re lucky there were no federal agencies involved. dude you''re going to trial. i hope for your sake your wife supports you. Why were use arrested with kidnapped charges if your wife is sticking by you? Who called the police on you? Or did you really kidnapped her and now she is changing her story? good luck!

Involuntary Unpaid LOA/Terminated--Q

A:  For any type of background checking, I now have this arrest on my record - showing three felonies.

Do you think I have a legal case to seek damages from my employer - lost wages (past and future), attorney fees, damage to my reputation, etc? Yes. Sue everyone involved.

Q: 

Public Defender won''t subpoena witness or get report I need

A:  First, the PD can't get the report any other way other than requesting it from the DA. Assuming he's served a discovery request, it's just something that you have to wait on. It's not clear what you think the benefit is of bringing in the dispatcher. They weren't present so anything they say would be hearsay and not admissible. Second, PD's are really, really busy and often don't have time to return calls as quickly as people think they should. For all you know this guy is in trial and that would be his focus for the moment. Third, the PD's office has secretaries that send out letters so if there's misspelling, etc., that's not the deputies fault. He puts in on the desk and says send a letter and the rest is up to staff to handle. If you are having a...

Q: 

district attorney filed criminal complaint on me

A:  so im wondering if they can do this? Sure, they did didn't they. This is the way most charges are brought. The police submit a report and the DA issues charges. Consult with a local criminal defense attorney. If your child is old enough to play paintball, you probably shouldn't be spanking him... A complaint normally results in either an arrest warrant or a summons. If the complaint has been pending, there's probably a warrant. Apply for a public defender. Bruises that result from punishment are going to allow a conviction in many states. Yes he/she can. As you have probably heard, a picture is worth 1000 words. In order the have the picture admitted, they normally...

Q: 

Restraining Order violation charge Colorado

A:  So you are saying that the restraining order expired and the district attorney is still charging you with violating this order? the motion to dismiss that we filed in 04 was never answered so we filed another. the d.a. is pursueing him for being with my daughter who is now 19. but my kids were only protected for the first 180 days that the p.r.o. went into effect that is the colorado law. the d.a. told us it is her job to pursue charges not drop them and because my daughters name still appears in the ''notes'' she can still convict him for violation....

Q: 

Calif Penal Code

A:  I'm not in CA. "Sometime later the letter was given to a local district attorney and he said the attorney committed a felony making that a part of the settlement discussion." If that was true, the prosecutor would likely be seeking a prosecution. You don't have much ability to "drop charges" in the first place. The state prosecutes for the good of society, NOT for the vicitm. >>>>Sometime later the letter was given to a local district attorney and he said the attorney committed a felony making that a part of the settlement discussion.
