You got charged with theft by deception and found guilty but had nothing to do with that the judge just did not want to hear what you had to say what can you do?
You need a lawyer. Try a Public Defender. Sorry about the judge, man.
If a person confesses to a crime but is found not guilty can someone else be charged with the same crime?
No. In order to be tried with any charge, you must first be charged with it. If you were never charged with DUI you can't be found guilty of that charge. HOWEVER - before you actually go to trial the prosecutor can file a motion with the court to AMEND the charge, and at that time amend the charge to DUI - IF they have evidence to sustain it.
If your not arrested for drug paraphernalia when pulled over in Arizona can you be convicted of such a crime?
It sounds from the question, as if the defendant was charged for TWO offenses. The one for which he was arrested, and the obstruction charge (when he apparently 'resisted' the arrest). . The question indicates that he was found not guilty of the original arrest charge, but WAS found guilty of obstructing the officer.
If you didn't know and found out later, nothing. You'll perhaps be a witness, but nothing will be charged on you. If you knew beforehand, you can be charged with conspiracy; if you found out later and didn't do anything, you can be charged with accessory after the fact. If you helped, you're again an accessory and a conspirator, and get charged with both.
It depends on where you are, whether the person dies, the circumstances, how you are charged, and if you're found guilty. In my state, if you shoot someone in self defense, you probably won't do any time in prison, although you may spend the night in a detective's office downtown. If you shoot someone and it isn't self defense and the person doesn't die, you may be charged with aggravated assault, and if found guilty…
No; but you could be guilty of the inchoate (incomplete) offences of: (i) conspiracy (plotting) to possess, or (ii) attempting to possess. Added: Certainly! That's why people throw away their guns, drugs, etc, etc, when they run from the police. That way they can say, "I didn't have it on me when I was arrested," and try to use that defense in court. Bottom line: If you threw it away and the officer saw you…
No, being convicted is quite different from being charged. When a person is charged with a crime, that constitutes an accusation that is not yet proved. If the person is then tried and found to be guilty, at that point he or she is convicted. A person who is charged with a crime may also be acquitted and therefore would not be convicted.
Three choices: (1) You can fight the charge and hope that you will ultimately be found 'not guilty.' (2) You can admit to the offense and plead guilty. (3) You can try to plea bargain (i.e.: 'cop a plea') with the prosecutor by offering to plead guilty to a lesser crime in exchange for a plea of guilty to that lesser offense.
