Re: Can anyone recommend an attorny....

If he can't afford his own attorney the state will appoint one. Do not go it alone. Sounds like they charged him w/attempt to commit a felony (aluminum cans) but then charged him w/possesion of firearm during the commission of a felony. Attempt and commission are not the same...just an example of why a lawyer is best...they look f/inconsistencies.

I agree with you on libys and idiots that run California...and I don't want to insult your friend but, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know you don't carry a pistol let alone loaded into California.

Re: Can anyone recommend an attorny....

update.......he has already gone to court once over this with an attorney he hired from the area. last i heard they had dropped the charges concerning the aluminum cans and were dropping the gun charges to misdemeanors. Bad news is it has cost him over $15,000 so far before any fines. They are having to sell the house they owned there to pay for this.

What part of "shall not be infringed " dont they understand out there? AJ

If anyone has a name and number of a good attorny in the area i would sure appreciate the help. AJ
The good guys get nailed and the bad guys get a free lunch...Sorry to hear about your friend.

The bad guys broke into my shop a month ago, kicked the door in, stole tools and two motorcycles. Two weeks later, the cops caught one of them in a stolen car. The cops then went to their house and found several other stolen cars, stolen guns, tools, other motorcycles and my motorcycles (one of which was on the dudes back yard deck.)

I got my bikes back, but not the tools. Apprently, the cops could not gain entry into the house where my tools were because the thief was just a room mate. The judge would not give them a search warrent cause the thief was not on title with the house.

Two days later, the thief was out of bail working his back yard on other cars. My friend is his next door neighbor. Apparently he caught them stealing stuff from him and he beat the %@&$ out of him. Three of his other neighbors have had break ins as well. In fact one of the neighbors had one of them at gun point and they broke away and ran.

It is sad to hear stories like your friends when the real criminals enjoy our freedoms and they continue their ways even after getting caught.
