What to do if my 2 older sisters brought false charges against me?

They filed warrants for my arrest; 20 minutes later I was locked up with no proof of anything. The police got me out my bed and didn’t read me my rights; they just locked me up. I have no criminal record at all but I spent 13 hours in jail. I got bonded out before I got booked. Now I’ve failed my first pre-trial drug screen and my PO is going to violate me.

Given the difficult situation you have written about and seemingly gotten yourself in, I suggest that you immediately consult with a competent criminal defense attorney in your community as to what you legal options are. If you do not know of one, I suggest that you look on attorneypages.com for one.

Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
