    This is a class A misdemeanor, but because of your age you are going to be treated differently. I an assuming this happened in Nassau County since you are frm Hicksville. If this happened in Nassau County, They are going to send your case to the Adolescent diversion part known as Adp. You will go before a judge for arraignment and they will conditionally release you to probation and send you downstairs for a YASI screening. Your parents must hire a lawyer or show the court that they cannot...

    If the Nassau case was not reopened, then that was dismissed and void from the beginning as if it never happened (fingerprints destroyed, etc.). Assuming you were still under 19 when the second case happened, you are what is called "mandatory YO". Even if you pled guilty to the charge, the court must seal your record because you are under 19. Technically this is not a conviction, rather it is an adjudication. Thus, if you are asked on a job application if you have any convictions, your...

    An A misdemeanor is punishable up to a year in jail, three years probation, a fine or a combination. In addition, you will forever have a criminal record. In the State of New York, an employer (unless they are a governmental agency such as the police department) cannot ask if you have ever been arrested. They can only ask if you have been convicted of a crime. A record cannot be expunged in NY, thus, once you take a plea, you will be checking that "yes" box for the rest of your life. Time...

    The purpose of bail is to make sure a defendant returns to court on the next date. At the arraignment, the judge looks at his prior record and pending charges and sets bail if he/she determines the defendant is a flight risk. A bail application can made. However, the attorney making the bail application must show that there has been a change in circumstances since the arraignment. It is unlikely that the judge will go from $20,000 to ROR unless there are major weaknesses in the case or he...

    As long as your driving privileges are valid in NY, you should be able to get a SC license. A warrant does not appear on your DMV records, only a scoff if you fail to answer a ticket. In any event, you should hire attorney and address your outstanding issues in NY because sooner or later they will catch up with you.ki
