Can I get probation for a first time offense of POSS CS PG 1 >=4G<200G with no prior drug charges? (second degree felony)
My wife was pulled over and went to jail for suspended drivers license. Three days later I took her up there to pay the tickets she received and as I'm waiting for her in the truck they come back outside with her in handcuffs and tell me she was seen on camera hiding things in the back seat of the cop car three days prior when they arrested her for the suspended drivers license. I asked what it was and the officer said cocaine. She has never had a drug conviction. Will she be able to get probation or is it guaranteed jail time?
With no prior convictions or probation, she is eligible for probation and jail time is not guaranteed.
Do I have a wrongful termination, breach of agreement, anything to stand on?

How long will it take to see the judge again after your bond has been set?
My boyfriend got a DUI over a year ago (Jan/Feb 2015 time frame) and was order to complete weekend service...which he did not complete. He recently turned himself in hoping to take care of his legal problems. He was booked on July 7th. He has seen the judge once...(I'm assuming that was pre-trial) at which time he waived his right to an attorney and his total bond was set at $3500. Although his original charge was DUI. his charges are now. Capias Profine, Escape from Custody (class A), and weekend service. Is there a max time they can have him sit before seeing the judge again? Our son is set to have surgery in Aug, and I'm not sure if he is looking at any serious time...or if he will even see the judge by then. If he does not bond out will he be able to see the judge sooner than he would if had bonded out? We are trying to get this behind as soon as possible which is why he has not been bonded out yet...but if it will be an extended period of time before he can see the judge again I would like to bond him out so he is available when our son goes through surgery.
Too bad he waived his right to an attorney because you would already have the answer from his Attorney. The Judge's...
Can I get one, is a DUI considered domestic violence, is the 5 years almost over and is a regular AR15 considered a rifle?
I would like to buy an AR-15 in the state of Texas. However I was under arrest in 2012 but placed under court supervision for a DUI in the state of Illinois before moving to Texas. Court supervision ended May of last year. My research (though possibly wrong) has shown that I should be able to purchase a rifle. but I am not 100% certain that an AR-15 is considered a rifle because I have seen some pistol versions of the carbine upper receiver design. All I am interested in is a regular AR-15 medium barrel. I am having trouble finding out if a DUI considered a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence in anyway and if it is, if that changes if you are given court supervision. I also can't find if the five year waiting period for handguns/CNC begin from the date of arrest, or the completion of the supervision.
The first question is whether the DUI was a misdemeanor or a felony. Almost all first offense non-aggravated DUI's are...
Can hospitals hold you against your will do to suicidal thoughts? Can your statement be countable if taking while intoxicated?
I'm extremely curious if I have a case against a Hospital. This situation is very personal. But I would like to speak on it because I felt like I was done wrong and my rights were violated. I would like to explain what happen step by step then maybe you can help see if there is any wrong doing. I called 911 July 14th drunk and crying stated I had 2 loaded guns and I was having suicidal thoughts I didn't click the guns safety was on I did not put guns to my head nor face or body as they stated . At the time my daughter was in her room asleep. Cops arrived shortly after, the ambulance was then called they took me to ER soon as I got in the ER my statement was taking while I was drunk my mind was not clear at the time. From the drunken statement they took out a court order to hold me there against my will even though I was considered voluntary because I called for myself. I stated over and over that I was voluntary. Nobody statement was taking until they calmed down, sobered up then someone would enter to speak with them. I was not giving that chance. I am a 25 f single mom who was grieving deeply over family lost. I was forced to take meds that made me sick! So much more! HELP
Under the facts you describe, they could keep you against your will. Sounds like you are out now, so hopefully able to...
