Were you arrested and charged with anything? If charged with underage drinking the outcome depends on what your other...
My boyfriend got arrested for driving on a restricted license while trying to rescue his dog from an animal shelter. He is a habitual offender and he just went to court over it. His lawyer told him it is considered a felony and the DA wanted to persue it as the felony. They wanted a plea bargain of 12 months in jail, or he would have a trial and would most likely get more, maximum of 5 years. Well we go to court and last minute his lawyer tells him the plea is now 2 years, 12 months suspended and 12 months probation, with little time to think about it because they were already infront of the judge he agreed but plead no contest. Can this be appealed?
If he decided to plead guilty to a crime then it is NOT able to be appealed. I assume the Judge sentenced him within...
Can a father with a non serious criminal background (theft, drunk in public) receive unsupervised visitations after his release?
I am a foster mom of a 9month old baby girl whom I have had since she was 5 days old. both parents were incarcerated and the father was released when she was 6 months old. he now wants unsupervised visitations . I have witnesses to his drug use and alcoholism since his release three months ago. he has a lengthy criminal background but no assaults or anything serious - mostly thefts, drunk in publics, public swearing, forgery etc. Is it possible for him to get no visitation because of his influence on her as she grows up?

I was charged with assault on an officer for pushing him extremely intoxicated. How do I keep myself out of jail? What do I do?
I was drinking wine with my mom last weekend and drank too much. I wound up blacking out and had been fighting with my boyfriend on the phone. I was upset and hysterical. My mom locked me out of the house and called the police. They showed up and I was told that I pushed the cop. I don't have a criminal history and am not a violent person. I didn't know if there were any chance if I got a lawyer and got involved in aa, anger management, therapy, and wrote the officer a formal apology if I could keep myself out of jail. id be willing to do probation or anything. I just am terrified to go back to jail after spending a week there. I am really trying to turn my life around. Please help!!
You really need to consult an attorney. And I am somewhat confused, you state you do not have a criminal history but...
My son's mother came home drunk and the police arrived shortly after. What do I need to do now to file for custody
I received a phone call from my son to come and pick him up. He informed me his mother came home drunk, wrecked her car, and the police were there. She had ran a car off the road, almost rear ended another, and swiped a guard rail. The police showed up at her home after a call was made regarding her erratic driving. They did not issue a DUI because she was in the home when they arrived. How should I proceed from here to gain custody or temporary custody if she agrees to rehab?
This is a custody issue. Contact a experienced family law attorney.
