      What is this?

      Why do you keep doing this?

      Yes, any charge can be reduced, but that doesn't mean that it will be reduced.

      Your friend has an attorney. Let them do their job. Ask all these questions to the attorney representing your friend.

      And no, the attorney doesn't have to tell you anything, nor does the court.

      Nor the DA.

      I actually don't know...what exactly is that? Sorry...I'm asking for someone else.
      Look on the charging papers.

      Tell us what the statute numbers are.

      Or, look here:

    • I spoke w/ the DA office and was told there is not a statute code or time frame...tomorrow was supposed to be my friend's last day in court. The gentleman .criminallaw.todaysummary.com. the DA's office said he could give me the state offense code, which is as follows: 22990002

    • Without the statute #s, no one here can make a guess. You can contact the attorney they've hired for 1. the statute numbers 2. the time frames.
