Legal Answers
Q. Does the d a need video proof besides just taking a sheriff's word for
A: The DA needs proof beyond a reasonable doubt. That is the standard. Video evidence is great, so is DNA. There is no bright line rule as to what constitutes the amount of proof needed. Taking a police officer's word alone might not be proof beyond a reasonable doubt if your attorney can cast doubt on the officer's testimony. I would argue there needs to be some corroborating evidence to support that officer's testimony.
Q. Hello today the Visalia so-called hope team which they are not hope for any of us came today to where we were
A: The facts as you explain them would constitute an illegal stop. For a detention (less than an arrest which requires probable cause) to be legal the officer must have reasonable suspicion a violation of law has already occurred. An officer cannot stop someone without cause, and then, after the stop, find a justification. If any contraband was found, and charges are filed, a skilled defense attorney would have a compelling argument this evidence must be suppressed.
Q. I was sentenced 5 years informal probation for dui. want to do the jail time instead I go to jail in a week,Next step?
A: Hi. This a good question. You have the right to deny probation and do custody instead. However, if you're already on probation that means you've already been sentenced. You need to consult a local DUI attorney about withdrawing your plea or being re-sentenced. Best of luck.
