Elko Law

My Husband was arrested on a bench warrant no bail for missing his sentenced time for his DUI. How long till he sees a judge?
I was told it could be two weeks. He got a no bail bench warrant and they say there is nothing i can do. Can they really keep him without seeing a judge for two weeks? We made several attempts to contact the judge to arrange a new time and talk to him about why he missed and never heard anything until the cops showed up to arrest him a month later.
Your lawyer should be able to file a motion to place on calendar to post bond/OR release upon 2 days' notice.
How long does Nevada (Elko) normally take to file criminal charges....
Was arrested in June 2012 for driving on suspended license, dui, felony possession of marijuana with intent... was released on ror...since then the court has not filed charges and keeps changing to court date...Is this normal and is there a time frame for them to file ...Being from out of state and have had past dealings with the court this seems abnormal...
keep your fingers crossed, but more than likely your case has fallen through the cracks, make no nuisance of yourselves.

Looking for second opinion... Plea bargain for DUI & Possession - not for sale charges
I have been offered a plea bargain and here is the gist of it: I have to plead guilty to the DUI, I have to plead guilty to the felony drug possession charge (under a gram of cocaine) . FYI, I was under the influence of alcohol, not the cocaine. I have to apply to drug court diversion program. If I am accepted, the felony charge will be ... dropped? expunged? (not quite sure on which) If I am not accepted, I will be required to plead guilty to a conspiracy to possess a controlled substance charge which is a gross misdemeanor. There is no guarantee on the sentencing for either charge it only says that the state will remain silent. I am worried I will not be accepted to drug court, should I try for a better plea agreement, or will this likely be my best option?
