Legal Answers
Q. motion to continue arraignment & trial granted w/out opposition- does that mean case is going to trial w no plea deal?
A: There are a lot of reasons why this could occur, but, no it definitely does not mean a case is going to trial with no plea deal. One reason a motion to continue is filed could be that the AUSA is about to reindict with a superseding indictment and doesn't want to arraign defendant twice and waste court resources. Another reason is that there could be a plea deal in the works and one or both sides don't want any speedy trial time to accrue. Or, it could be a simple as someone is going out of town/doing a different trial and not ready to proceed at all at this time. The only way you can really tell on the pacer docket that a case is going to trial is if you see the R and R, and case is certified and ready for trial. And in reality, after a bunch more time as passed, you see a flurry of activity of filing voir dire, specially setting trial date etc. ... Read More
Q. Is the search warrant valid if it has the wrong address?
A: A lot depends on the specific circumstances surround the situation. If there is a valid issue with the search warrant, we can fight it by filing a motion to suppress in court and hope the judge will suppress whatever was seized during the search.
Q. When a residence is raided by law enforcement they leave behind a property sheet of items they took, at the top it says
A: I would advise that you contact a lawyer to attempt to get your items back. Since there was a search warrant executed where you live, it may mean that there is an active investigation and thus it may not be a good idea to speak to law enforcement without representation.

Charges could still very well be forthcoming. The government sometimes can take a full year after a search warrant is executed to indict.
