My husband was charged with possession. They ordered drug court but since he didnt qualify and after sitting time in jail he plead guilty to 5 years probation with 7 year backup. We looked on casenet Nd on 7/03 it says commitment after jail sentence return- served so we wanted to know if it’s a warrant or what

Are public defenders reliable when fighting a federal case? What are the pros and cons to then?

  

Are public defenders reliable when fighting a federal case? What are the pros and cons to then?

I am currently fighting a federal case with 9 counts and was appointed a public defender because at the time I couldn’t afford a private lawyer. It is a serious offense and seems like it could carry alot of time if convicted. Is it best to try and get my own defense lawyer or can a public defender get the same results?
This is my first offense

Justin’s Answer

It defends on the public defender. In my experience, public defenders typically have much more trial experience than private attorneys, simply because their practice is focused there. The public defender’s in Jackson County are among the best in the state and have recently had a lot of success against the prosecutor’s office.

That said, they are generally over-worked and have much less time to focus on an individual case. If you are worried about this, many private attorneys offer payment plans and free consultations.

Is it legal in the state of Missouri to falsify the year that a home was built?

  

Is it legal in the state of Missouri to falsify the year that a home was built?

I purchased a home in 2013 that had been repossessed by a bank after the death of the prior owners. It was sold to me on a cash-only basis and I was told that the house was built in 1970. My deed of trust says the house was built in 1970 all legal documents specify the houses being built in 1970 but I have found out in the last Almost 5 years since I purchased the home that the home was not built in 1970 but 1949. Is there a statue of limitations on what I can do and is there anything I can do about the falsification of when the house was built

Justin’s Answer

If someone intentionally falsified the records, they could be charged with fraud. However, if the crime dates back to the 70s, the statute of limitations is probably up.

More importantly to you, if the seller falsely represented the year to you, you may have an action against them to recover any financial loss you have suffered. You would have to contact an attorney for more information.

Can my wife agree not to have boyfriend at child exchange then bring him anyway?

  

Can my wife agree not to have boyfriend at child exchange then bring him anyway?

My wife and I separated 2 months ago. She moved 100 miles away. We have been trying to work out parenting time for our 2 children. Boyfriend threatens and taunts so I ask wife if I come to get the kids if she will keep him out of the exchange. Drive 2 hours to meet at designated place just to find out he is with her taunting in the background. Anything I can do to keep him out of exchanges?

Justin’s Answer

If you do not have a court order preventing it, then yes, she can change her mind. However, if the boyfriend is behaving inappropriately, you can possibly get a court order keeping him away from these meetings and away from your child if the behavior is severe enough. You will have to speak to a family law attorney to learn more.

What what can I do?

  

What what can I do?

Last year I had three tickets first tickets ever in my life 2 no insurance and one failure to stop at a stop sign I paid all three tickets off in full before the day of my court date just yesterday I was arrested and taken to jail due to driving on suspended license the reasoning behind that they said was I never paid my ticket when I did I have receipts and confirmation number what do I do

Justin’s Answer

You will need to hire an attorney to help you with this. It’s possible your payments weren’t processed correctly. It’s also possible that those tickets triggered a point suspension on your license, which may be the real reason you were charged. There are too many variable to answer in a public post.

What is the judge going to say or ask me?

  

What is the judge going to say or ask me?

I am 17 and I received a MIP a little over a month ago. I did do the breathalyzer and blew a .058. I don’t know what to say when I walk into court or what the judge is going to ask me. I do not know who my prosecutor is. I also did talk to an attorney, and he suggested for me to do 20 hours of community service before my court date, but now since I waited so long I will not be able to do that. This is also my very first offense of any kind on my record.

Justin’s Answer

The judge is going to inform you of the charge or charges against you and the possible penalties. Then the judge will ask how you plead. The judge will hopefully encourage you to ask for a continuance to contact an attorney. You should do so. In my area, MIP is a relatively easy charge to keep of your record. However, a local attorney can tell you more.

I’ve been on probation for a year and have one more to go. It is for shoplifting. I made the mistake of shoplifting again for 150 of merchandise. I have court in Sept. Am I facing jail time for first offence

Justin’s Answer

Yes. Judges are prone to put probation violators in jail, especially if they re-offend with the same crime. You could be looking at jail for violating probation AND on the new charge.
