    Your best bet would be to speak to a lawyer to assist with the probation transfer, then if that does not work, to assist with a modification of your probation terms OR a sentence modification to end your probation early.

    I agree with what has been said by others, but if you have a month to do 10 more hours of community service --- JUST DO IT! Go see the bail commissioner or probation if you need help finding a place. You should be able to find a place that can accommodate you over the next month to do 10 hours. Then you can avoid the whole topic of asking for more time and risking the judge saying no and avoiding another court date. Attorney Mark D. Colson Colson Law Firm, LLC 40 Russ Street Hartford,...

    I agree with what was said above. I would first look into the conviction history to determine exactly what happened to the assault case many years ago and whether it is still on your record. With that information, you should re-apply and disclose. An attorney can certainly help you with this process, especially one familiar with the pistol permit process and the board of firearms permit examiners (appeals) process. Good luck! Attorney Mark D.

  4. A pending case in court (assault 2nd) will show in a background check?

    While you do not have a criminal conviction at this point (and may or may not ever depending on the circumstances of your case) the pending case will likely show up on background checks. Unfortunately employers might not understand or care about the difference between a "pending" case and a "conviction" even though there is a substantial difference. My best suggestion to you is to speak to an attorney in your area because Assault 2nd is a felony and can have very serious consequences beyond...

    I was in court when this happened, it is a court I appear in frequently. Because of the specifics of what happened, there is not an easy answer or explanation. Your friend has a very competent attorney and I am sure they are discussing appropriate next steps.

    This information is available through a FOIA request directed to the Department of Corrections. They will likely require the request to be in writing, but they are usually really great about turning around responses for requests of this type. Good luck!

    You need to contact a criminal defense attorney who routinely practices in your local area. This should be the next thing you do. After that, and going forward, you should stop posting about this incident online and you should not dicuss this matter with anyone but your attorney. Good luck!

  8. I live in a illegal basement apartment, can I sue for relocation fees as well as utility bills?

    You can certainly ask for money at the eviction mediation - a stipulation (if reached at the mediation) is essentially a private agreement. As long as both sides agree, you can agree on just about anything, including money. The judge in the eviction court is not going to award money for things like you have mentioned if you fail to reach an agreement that includes money. If you are entitled to compensation for the things you mention, you should file a small claims case as well. Good luck!...

    The length you can stay in your residence depends on a lot of factors as others have said. If you are interested in paying the back rent, you should contact the landlord NOW and see if they will reinstate your lease if you make full payment. If you wait until the trial starts, it could be too late. Good luck! Mark

    It's a little unclear, does the bank now own the property? Are they the ones trying to get you out, or is it the former owner? Speak to a real estate/housing attorney in your area, there are plenty of good ones, and run your plans by them. Good luck! Mark
