  • Can my son be detained after I post bail he has a hold in another state. He was been detained for lewd behavior.

    He has a second charge for lewd behavior and I just want to know how long can they hold him. Having sex in a car with someone or urinating in public without out him knowing does this warrants the treatment my son is receiving. They are not giving ...

    Mark’s Answer

    The bail frees him from the NJ charger but not the Pa. charge. The bail has nothing to do with representation. The jail should tell you where the Pa. charge is and then call and get the bail amount from them.

  • My 17 year old granddaughter was drunk driving her car and had only the license that says she can drive from 6am to 11pm.

    She hit a parked car in a residential neighborhood, kept going and stopped in the middle of street blowing her horn and neighbors called police. She got 9 tickets. Under age drinking, Dui, unsafe lane change, leaving scene of accident, and a few m...

    Much more information is needed to answer the question. She cannot get out of this unless she is not guilty. They will likely not dismiss everything regardless of her mental condition. She was not charged with DWI from your post so she may have blown under .08. The leaving the scene is the big one for her license. Underage drinking is a DP and would be on her criminal record the others not.

  • My friends dog was stolen and the person was charge with theft. And when she asked the judge to have her dog returned to her

    The Judge stated a dog is property and she doesn't have the authority to order them to return the dog. Does that make sense ? It is Municipal Court.

    Mark’s Answer

    Until there is a decision that it was theft the court will likely not act.

  • Will this show on a backround check in nj

    I was a gen manager or a large retail chain and was accused of theft I was never arrested or formally charged but plead no contest and agreed to pay restitution that I could not afford this was 4yrs ago will it show on a background check

    Mark’s Answer

    More information is needed. If you paid something, unless it was a "civil demand" from the store, you were charged with something. NJ does nor have a "no contest" plea. You can run your CCH with the State Police for a small fee. If you went to court there is likely at least an arrest entry on a complaint.

    If there is a warrant the NJ police can arrest you and hold you for extradition.. You may want to retain a NY attorney and find out whats up.

  • What is the process of getting a non felony charge on my record expunged?

    Charge is over 10 years old and I am eligible for expungement

    Mark’s Answer

    You file a petition pursuant to 2C:52-1 et seq in the superior court. You file a verified petition and get a hearing order and serve it on all parties. Then get an order and serve it on all parties. If your petition is wrong, you file wrong, you miss a data base, you miss a party etc. you mess up the deal. Use an attorney.

    Mark’s Answer

    You can pay the $85 and take a safe driving course. Or you can go to court and get a 0 point ticket. the most normal reduction is 4-97.2 that is $439. But there are cheaper ones. The prosecutor may not give you those though.
