Why are all 3 cases set for Trial together when the 3 cases have nothing to do with one another? ~ Chosen as "Best Answer" by Asker on AVVO ~ Call Michael A. Haber, Esq. @ 1-888-SHARK-8-1

Q:     Why are they trying all 3 cases together when the 3 cases have nothing to do with one another?  My  fiancĂ© was arrested for fleeing/eluding in 3/2015. He was in jail for approx. 1 week. For the week that he was incarcerated, he was charged with grand theft. The theft was of a motor cycle & allegedly this theft happened 10/2014. They said they found his thumb print on the decal of the license plate. we bonded him out after about a week. We had been going to court about once a month, where his p/d would keep getting a continuance. We show up 12/3 for court and he gets arrested on an active warrant for sales of a control substance& goes to jail. problem now is he is scheduled for court on 1/29 and from what I am understanding, they are trying all 3 cases together even though none of the cases have anything to do with each other . I want a lawyer that will help with the last charge, which is the one that he will face the most time for, especially because they charged him with first degree felony of sales within 1000 ft of place of worship. But if they are trying to put all three cases together , how is that justified? i get taxes and the end of month to pay a lawyer. That might be too late if he scheduled 1/29. Why aren't we getting the same amount of time for his last charge?

Answered They are not putting all 3 cases together; rather all 3 cases are printing out at the same time for the convenience of the court. This way the Court can determine which if the 3 will be tried 1st (they cannot try them together), if any, and whether or not a global resolution (i.e. a way to resolve all 3 w/o a trial) is possible.

If you are looking to retain counsel then you should consider that no one case is more important than the other (yes, I know that one carries more time than the rest)(, but if he is dead on the facts and law on the "less severe cases" then he's going down, and with the combo of cases and charges I suspect that if that happens he will go down fast and hard.

Still, your fiance may or may not enjoy viable defenses to the charges, affirmative or otherwise, or there may be factual, legal, procedural or substantive mechanisms by which to attack and beat the charges in his unique case, I do not know and the forum to find out is NOT on line; rather it is in the sanctity of attorney's offices, where statements are privileged and cannot be used against anyone.

My advise: GET OFFLINE (caps intentional) and into a skilled and experienced local criminal defense lawyer's office. Make an appointment, show up on time, bring whatever evidence, documents or witnesses that you may have, engage in a meaningful face-to-face consultation and get yourself some advise which is legally sound and has been custom tailored as possible to meet your specific reasonable needs in your unique case.

I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
