    Carl’s Answer

    If there is no credible evidence against you then you may want to take the case to trial. As you already know this can be a troublesome conviction to have on your record.

    Carl’s Answer

    You or your attorney can contact the court administrator to advance the case. If the court advances the case it will appear on the calendar. If that should happen then you will have to appear in court and speak with the prosecutor. If you show up to court on a date that your case is not scheduled the prosecutor will not speak with you.

  • Restitution Payment Question

    (I am on probation) Does NYC send a letter notifying you that you need to make your payments if I am not making them like I am supposed to? Or do they just violate you and throw you in jail? Or how does it work.

    Carl’s Answer

    I you are not making your scheduled restitution payments you are not likely to get a notice to pay. You are likely to get a violation of probation notice to return to court.

  • Is DISORDERLY CONDUCT considered a crime

    I am completing a job application and I am not sure how to answer the question "Have you been convicted of a crime?" A few months ago I was charged with disorderly conduct a violation. So should I answer yes or no to this job application question?

    Carl’s Answer

    It is not clear from your question whether you were convicted of the disorderly conduct or are still fighting it. If you plead guilty to the disorderly conduct you were not convicted of a crime.

    Carl’s Answer

    You should go down to the court and ask for a copy of the summons. Perhaps there is some mistake that you can speak to either the prosecutor or the judge to get the summons dismissed if it was not you.
