Is my friend likely to be questioned after a massage
I have a friend that visited a massage parlor nine months ago where happy endings are known to be common. After nine months isnhe likely to be questioned. The massage was in Texas and we have read a lot of articles about police collecting license plates.
Criminal charges have to be filed within a set period of time. That time limit is called a statute of limitations....
How long should it take from the moment I was arrested for the court to render a decision in a DUI case?
In October of 2015 I was arrested for DUI and a couple other violations after an accident. At the time I was under the care of a VA mental health physician and was on a medication and did not know I was driving. The officers assumed I was under the influence of alcohol and I was arrested. I hired a lawyer, we went to court on three separate occasions between November of 2015 to August of 2016. It is now May of 2017 and the judge has still not rendered a decision. I would also like to mention that each time my court date was rescheduled, it was because the prosecutor either did not have witnesses, the officer did not show up or he needed more time. Never did I ask for a continuance and it has been almost a year and 8 months since I was arrested. The judge had also accepted a document from my mental health doctor stating that I was under that medication under the time. Have my civil rights to a speedy trial been violated? At what point should I consider filing a motion to dismiss because of the time frame?
I'm sure you have an attorney representing you. Discuss the issue with him and see if a motion is appropriate. It...
Can you be charged with a crime if they did not preserve the evidence?
In 2015 I was in a terrible car accident and was medflighted from the scene and the officer "on duty" claims to have "found" a wallet separate from my wallet and it contained .066g of a controlled drug in it. They provided pictures of such said wallet but all the evidence has just magically disappeared. They wait till 2016 a year after to file charges on me. I need help comprehending this please.
You do not need help comprehending this; what you need is a lawyer to fight this. If you have been charged then you...
Just wondering if my girlfriend is gonna get any prison time for getting a DUI while she is on felony probation
My girlfriend was driving with another person one night and got pulled over the officer smelled pot. He kept asking my girlfriend to take a soberity test and she refused by continuing to ask him does it smell like I have been drinking a few times of saying that he handcuffed her and took her to jail. Her friend in the car was the one smoking the stuff and my girlfriend never touched it but her friend got to avoid going to jail. My girlfriend goes to see a PO once a week and hasn't failed a drug test yet. But she is on felony probation and got court in the next few weeks I was just wondering if she is gonna go to prison for violating her probation
Hope not ! but your specific answer will come from asking her attorney who has all the facts and evidence.
When will I know if I have been charged?
I was in a crash and had alcohol with me in my car. The crash killed the other driver. A Blood alcohol level was drawn on both drivers. I was severely injured and don't remember any part of that day. If my alcohol level is elevated when should I hear from investigators or police?
I suspect you will hear from law enforcement regardless of whether your BAC was anything other than 0.00. They'll...
Resident of Tennessee, DWI in Arkansas. First DWI
I am a resident of Tennessee. I was pulled over and issued a DWI in Arkansas, first DWI. They took my license and issued me a temporary one ( a piece of paper good for 30 days). My questions are: - Will TN be notified of the DWI? - How do I get my license back and is it also suspended in TN? - I am on probation in TN, I have 45 days left. Probation ends before first Arkansas court date. What can I expect? Violation of probation? Should I inform them since it was in another state or wait it? Also, I have 7 days to request an administrative hearing for license suspension. Not sure whether to mark the box to fully contest it or mark the one for restricted. Again, confused. I'm licensed in TN and this was in Arkansas. I have reached out to a few AR attorneys but have not heard back. Thanks for looking.
1. TN will most likely be notified of the DWI, because interstate compacts mandate notification so that your home state...
Could a DUI be filed if I simply ask a question about hit and run?
A few nights ago I for some dumb reason decided to drink and drive. Don't really remember the drive home except for a small tid bit. My truck has no damage at all, but my anxiety & driving drunk guilt has made me think about hit and runs. If I call and ask the police department and they say there was no accidents reported, could I still get in trouble if they knew the back story?
Not really. The police have to have more evidence than just a confession. At this late date they can't get blood or...
