If the crime is designated a federal offense the state has nothing to do with whether or not charges will be brought against the alledged perpetrator. Since the person has a previous felony conviction it is very likely charges will be filed and the person will face trial or possibly be allowed to plead to a lesser charge.

In Oklahoma how many preliminary hearings can you have before if goes to trial?

About 8 max, but it is better to take a bargain if the accused makes it to 5 preliminary hearings. His/her chances of getting charged guilty after this is high; especially with felony charges. After this amount of time, the prosecutor has plenty of ammo -so to speak- to take the defendant down. Not to mention the tax dollars being wasted; the defendant's lawyer would also be buying time to pocket more money from the defendant!

Who is at fault if a unlawful u turn and someone else made a right turn into the back of your van?

Most likely this is 50/50 fault, since you made unlawful U turn. It means you contributed to the accident. Question is, did the person making the right turn have a green or a red light. If the other person had red light, you have better chances, since he was supposed to come to a complete stop before executing the turn.

Will the eviction show up if you don't owe money?

Yes! An unlawful detainer judgment will show on a credit report despite the fact that money is not owed. Generally, when you apply for an apartment, you fill out the application and the property management company runs a credit report check that includes your "TRW" and a tenant/resident screening service now owned by First Advantage Saferent. In California it was called "The U.D. Registry, Inc." which was acquired by First Advantage in 2004. Some landlords use a single agency which in turn does the dual check, but the process is the same. Your application can be rejected because you have an eviction on your record. Being listed on the Registry can result in higher rents and difficulty in finding a decent place residence in the future.In California some credit agencies write down the names of every defendant in an eviction case starting 60 days after the eviction action was filed, and keep the names on their records in order to permanently damage the rental chances of these tenants. These companies make no inquiry into the issues of the case; they just report the named tenants in the unlawful detainer actions filed after the expiration of 60 days (when it was unavailable to the public) as bad tenants who should not be rented to.Pursuant to California Civil Code §1786.18(a)(4) consumer reporting agencies may not report unlawful detainer actions where the defendant was the prevailing party or where the action is resolved by settlement agreement. However, First Advantage is known to omit the record only if tenant shows "judgment for defendant."

The Benefits of Having a Felony Lawyer?

A felony is a very serious type of crime. It differentiates from a misdemeanor which is a less serious crime and carries less severe consequences. States have some discretion regarding what they classify as a felony or misdemeanor. A lawyer is definitely necessary when there is a felony charge, and oftentimes, an attorney is also needed when there are more severe misdemeanor charges. A felony generally carries at least a one year sentence in prison while a misdemeanor carries a term less than one year in jail. A person can be arrested for a felony even before the felony charge is issued. The felony charge is when the prosecutor formally begins legal proceedings against an accused person. Each state has the discretion to choose which way the proceedings are handled. In most cases, there are two methods that are used to bring the charges against the defendant. The federal government and quite a few states use the grand jury. The grand jury is a random group of ordinary people picked by the district attorney. The district attorney will then present the evidence that they have against the defendant. This group of citizens will determine if there is sufficient evidence to charge the defendant. In some states, the prosecutor will simply write a complaint that accuses the defendant of the crime. The prosecutor will then present this document to the judge. There will then be a preliminary hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to proceed with a trial. A person should have secured a felony attorney by this time. A felony conviction will change your entire life, so it is important to have the right representation for a felony charge. It is critical to have someone who knows the law to assist you. Adequate representation makes a huge difference in whether you will be convicted, and it also determines the length of time you spend in prison. Some defendants are able to prove that they are not guilty of a felony crime, but this is done with the help of a savvy attorney. Your freedom is too precious to take chances with it. You must protect your freedom by fighting for your given rights as a citizen of the U.S. You must stay the course even when it seems hopeless. The legal process can be tedious and cumbersome. It takes patience to endure to the end of the process.
