Q. Is it possible to get 18 months for armed robbery
A: In order to determine a "range" for a specific crime, you need to look at the sentencing guidelines. You can find them online for the District of Columbia at http://scdc.dc.gov/publication/2014-voluntary-sentencing-guidelines-manual. You need to know both the offense being charged, and any enhancements or aggravating elements that could make the crime more serious. The most common form of enhancement is prior offenses. Like many jurisdictions, DC works on a point system. For example, prior convictions for serious crimes carries a "+ point score" of +3. Misdemeanors are +1. Generally, any conviction AND sentence within 10 years will add points to the score table. Armed robbery itself falls on master group 5 with a range from 36 months to 120 months. Although these are suggestive (voluntary) guidelines, the Court will almost always follow them. Of course, enhancements or aggravating factors will make this much higher. To deviate from this, you need an excellent and compelling reason. Speak to your attorney -- or contact us and we can help.
Q. How do I file Reversionary interest
A: A reversionary interest is a legal right in some sort of property, real or personal. This sort of interest is created at the inception of the property.
Q. What is the amount of time till you can file wrongful death in virginia?
A: You must file a wrongful death suit within two years after the death. However, if the decedent died more than two years after the injury without having brought suit, the action is barred.
Q. How much time is someone looking at for taking indecent liberties with a child in a custodial or supervisory.
A: This is a class 5 felony which carries a maximum penalty of not more than 12 months confinement, but probation can last from 1-10 years. The age of the child will affect your time. If the child was 15 at the time of the incident then the amount of time will likely be from 1-6 months confinement. If the child was 1 at the time of the incident, you will likely get closer to the maximum.
