Legal Answers
Q. I would like to know how it is possible to be charged with felony assault from a compulsive liars "word" no Witness
A: Unfortunately, this happens a lot. Especially if the accuser is in an intimate relationship with the accused person and the allegations involve domestic violence. A case like this, with a significant lack of evidence, is very defensible. Consult with an attorney ASAP to assess your best options.
Q. If you are going to court for a probation violation and you hire an attorney, do you still have to talk to your
A: If you have a pending violation of probation and have hired a lawyer to represent you on the alleged violation, you are still required to continue reporting to probation - that obligation doesn't change. The fact that you have a lawyer on your probation matters does not then automatically mean that you have a right to your lawyer being present for all meetings and/or communications with your PO. However, you do have a 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination and a 6th Amendment right to have your lawyer present if you are speaking about, or being questioned on, the pending violation proceeding. Talk with your lawyer further about this because there are complicated confidentiality/privilege considerations at play.
Q. if I was never pulled over for speeding but was arrested charged for speeding & other charges is this Legal?
A: This sounds like a terrible scenario that you experienced. So sorry you lived through that. If you were parked and only stopped because of suspicion that you committed a traffic infraction - an infraction for which the officer's story is not credible if he waited a significant amount of time before stopping and even bought a drink in a store in the time in between - then you have a valid argument that your 4th Amendment rights were violated. If you can adequately demonstrate that in Court, you could have all of the evidence against you potentially be suppressed. That would likely result in a dismissal or serious reduction in charges. You should definitely hire a lawyer who is experienced on 4th Amendment issues - like myself and other lawyers on here. At least, call for a FREE consultation to assess your best options / defenses / rights.
