I asked for my blood to be drawn, which came back negative for everything. The possession charge is for synthetic, I understand that certain chemicals have been made illegal but I feel that the strand I had on me wasn't one of them. With trial so close is there any way for me to ask that the evidence(synthetic) be tested by a chemist?
In order for the State to prove that you're guilty of possessing synthetic marijuana, they would HAVE to have a chemist...
My son was driving with a suspended drivers license and evaded arrest. In trying to evade he ended up hitting a pole, ran by foot and the police caught him and took him to jail.

I was on felony probation and managed to get a second dui in CA. One of my last remaining relatives got extremely ill so I had to come to texas. I also had no safe drug free place to live in CA so I had no choice but to leave since I'm sincerely set on doing the right thing and I basically don't want to die . I have no reources just yet and am wondering where to go to get things straightened out to help myself and my relative live a decent life without fear of a catastrophic arrest. I lack the resources to travel so am looking for some solution I can do here from texas.
If you qualify for a public defender, go there. If you do not, I would start rounding up family and friends for loans....
I was on felony probation for firearms posession and also had a second dui in california. A caregiver for my now deceased parents got my mom to sign a legal power of attorney while she had dementia and literally stole everything I had. I have no place to live in ca and few assets to fix all this. My aunt in texas also needed my help because of her health. I'm totally sober now and sincerely trying to do the right thing and have no idea what to do to get my life in order to get on with the type of construction I am skilled at.
Maybe - maybe not - but you will be arrested eventually and held for days or weeks until California decides whether to...
I was arrested in Memorial weekend of this year 2013. I need to renew my visa and I am worried that I might have trouble doing so since my DWI was categorized as class A misdemeanor. Since my arrest of one day and after 2 months I travel outside the US, I was re-admitted into the country and the officer asked me if I had taken care of my DWI, I said it was in the process and I came back for school; now I am traveling again to renew my visa, and I do not know if it is going to affect me since I plead guilty and I am on probation.
Possibly? Yes.
