Legal Answers
Q. Are police officers required to report monetary gain for a reporting victim?
A: A benefit to the named victim in a case for filing an allegation against you would be considered a possible motive to lie. This information, particularly if known by the government, should be discovered to the defense.

Each case and scenario must be reviewed individually in relation to current case law, statutes and rules of criminal procedure.

Hope this is helpful.

Q. Do i need a lawyer everytime iam in front of the judge
A: I agree with my esteemed colleague that you do not always need a lawyer, and most judges will give you an opportunity or even multiple opportunities to obtain counsel or apply to the public defenders office for representation. As a general rule, it is best to obtain counsel at the beginning of a case or once you learn you are under investigation for criminal allegations. Do not forego your right to legal representation if at all possible.

Any criminal case, big or small, can impact your life for years to come. You cannot take back ill advised comments once made before a judge or to a prosecutor. The prosecutors use laptops in most jurisdictions in court. They will take notes on a defendant’s behavior or comments during court. I have had prosecutors recite to me comments they noted made by a client prior to obtaining legal counsel.

Take care. Sean Harrell
