Legal Answers
Q. 18 year old son charged shooting paintball gun on college campus- charged with firearms/MV, reckless endangerment,
A: You should absolutely hire an experienced criminal attorney. These are serious criminal charges. And, you're correct, that your son's future will be detrimentally affected if he suffers a criminal record. Take care, Sal Bonanno.
Q. Need urgent help
A: You should clear the outstanding arrest warrants by turning yourself in, then bond out, hire a criminal defense attorney and enter the program. Otherwise, you may find yourself arrested while your in the program. Best of luck
Q. I was arrested Sunday and released on a DWI charge and now they want me to come back in. What should I do?
A: I don't believe that you will be getting rearrested. What has likely occurred is that you were given a court date (or court location) that will not work due to the many COVID-19 court closures. Go to the police department to get the updated paperwork (with date and court location) and do NOT discuss the DUI case at all. If possible, go with a family member or friend. After that contact a good criminal defense attorney.
