Legal Answers
Q. How can I get this 4 degree assault charge dropped?
A: This sounds like a very frustrating situation. The prosecutor is the only person that has the authority to dismiss a criminal offense. You need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you and see whether he could persuade the prosecutor to dismiss. This isn’t easy! This is why you hire someone that has experience because these type of arguments or negotiations are delicate! Good luck
Q. I was arraigned on 3/19 and my trial was set for 6/28. Does that violate my speedy trial rights?
A: I am assuming you are not counting any time that was under the trial suspension due to Covid. Talk to your attorney.
Q. The right to travel does that mean it is legal to drive without a driver's license?
A: Of course it doesn’t. Get a valid license from your state of domicile to drive a vehicle.
