NC Outstanding Criminal Warrant Charge

When you are given a court date on a criminal charge in North Carolina, you are required by law. If you fail to appear in court when scheduled to do so, you may face a criminal charge for failure to appear in addition to the original offense. If you were notified by mail, such as with a criminal citation, or for a probation violation or related incident, it’s very possible you didn’t get it, and only found out after being stopped and arrested on the outstanding warrant. We can advise you what additional charges you may be facing and how those charges might affect any other criminal proceedings you are involved in. If the underlying charge is old, we may be able to get that dismissed too, for lack of evidence against you. If you have already been arrested for failure to appear, things are definitely trickier, but we may still be able to figure out a way to explain the situation away and keep you out of further trouble and additional charges. The additional criminal charge of failure to appear could potentially keep you in jail throughout the rest of your court proceedings. If you were released on misdemeanor charges and then failed to return, you will face misdemeanor failure to appear. Misdemeanor failure to appear is a Class 2 misdemeanor which is punishable by 30 days to 6 months in jail. If you were released pending felony charges, you will likely be charged with felony failure to appear. Felony failure to appear is a Class I felony which carries a potential sentence of 3-8 months in prison for a first-time offender. So call for a consultation on your failure to appear charge today.

American Aikido Martial-Arts Lessons

Similar to American Mixed Martial Arts fighting, but deadlier and not to be taken lightly. Both are actively used in many security guard training courses across the country, and internationally. S.C.A.R.S – This is a military training anyone can utilize this training and many security companies have requested their employees to take this training. Many police officers I know have trained in Krav Maga, Danzan Ryu jujitsu, Brazilian jiu jitsu, and judo. They are excellent candidates to join my Aikido program, and learn techniques to change aggressive movements of an attack, resulting in a throw or joint lock that yields the aggressor into submission. There are several main attacks that Aikido trains to defend against. The taninzudori, or taninzugake, is an Aikido defense maneuver when dealing with multiple attackers. This takes much mental training, as well as the physical strength, smoothness of movement, and keen reaction time. For security guards, police officers and military personnel, I recommend training in multiple martial arts disciplines. This should be followed by jujitsu, to take your training to the ground so you are prepared for a grapple. All this defensive should be mastered by introducing Aikido into your skill-set, as an Aikido practitioner will learn to take all they have learned and translate into a powerful sense of self-awareness and control over your body, as well as your attackers. Aikido aims to not only protect you in an altercation, but also to protect your attacker from injury.
