    You know exactly what you have to do. Get an attorney now! You already admitted you drank. You already agreed to write a statement with the admission. They took your blood all with your cooperation. Did any Trooper actually see you behind the wheel? You need a great attorney in your area to get to work on this now. Please, do not help the Trooper any more. He will be knocking on your door when he brings you your blood results, takes away your license and issues you your temporary license....

    Only you know if you were searching for child porn and sharing files, etc. If you were, you are on your way to getting in serious trouble as you don't accidentally click on child porn. Now, if it was a pop-up, I believe you are being scammed. There probably is no evidence on your computer that you are possessing child porn in violation of the code. You probably got a flash of a virtual child, not a real child--followed by the threat which you mentioned--which will be followed by a demand...

    The conviction was stricken under the Criminal Procedure Article 6-220 which means that there is no conviction for the purpose of any disqualification or disability imposed by law because of conviction of a crime. You do not have a conviction so there is nothing to appeal. However, the case remains in the system. Usually in criminal cases a period of probation is imposed and if you violate the probation you end up back in front of the sentencing Judge who can send you to jail and reimpose the...

  4. I was in a car accident in February. I went to court for failure to obey traffic control. The violation was dismissed.

    Well, it depends what you did between February and now. It has been eleven months. Did you see doctors, go for therapy, report aches and pains? Did you do nothing for over ten months and now that your case is dismissed for whatever reason ( no one showed?) you want to sue someone. If you aren't hurt, if you weren't hurt, if you have no injury and you just think the other side is at fault, who cares. That is what an accident is. Before you waste an attorney's time, what is it that you...

    This is probably a theft under 100.00 citation which probably doesn't sound bad to you , but it is. The crime of theft is a crime of moral terpitude. It means basically that you can't be trusted, you are a thief. If that ends up on your record it will hurt job opportunities forever. It sounds like you qualify for a public defender which is an attorney that you do not have to pay for. You need one. Get one now and stop confessing on line. Also, it is possible that the people that are...

  6. I just recieved a traffic citation from the state of utah for driving on a suspended license in 1997.

    Sure they can but I do not think they will because it is ancient. I do not even know if they can correctly link the payment to the citation. The interstate compact allows one state to suspend a license for failure to pay a fine and to notify the driver's present state---that is true. Then the current state may suspend you. I just don't understand why you got notice now and how? If it is not an expensive ticket you can always just pay it but usually driving on a suspended license is...

    Well, that depends: did he pick up new charges in the interim---probably not or they would have attached the warrant; is he working, is he in school, was he injured, did he move, what was the reason for not following the court's orders? Does he have anyone to stand up for him, is he living in the community, did he address the anger issues through therapy or other means, was he a drinker and now he quit, is the woman he battered with him or gone? Does he have a good lawyer? It depends but you...

    If you want your job back and the company is saying you can get your job back you need to prove you do not take illegal drugs. Go to your own doctor and request a full lab work up and check the box for all of the illegal drugs (if in fact you really do not imbibe). Have your doctor who has been prescribing you all of the narcotics, pain meds, etc. and is also aware of the drugs that went into your system through anesthesia (ask him to use Dr.'s medical notes that he can rely on and reference...

    In our jurisdiction the attorney must enter their appearance within five days of being paid. However, sometimes the agreement stipulates the money will be held in escrow until x amount is paid and then they will enter. Due to the fact your attorney accepted money your attorney is now responsible for you and your case ethically. If you stepped foot in the courtroom for a hearing and your attorney was not present you would be asked if you paid her. You would answer yes and then the attorney...

    Attorney Wallach gave you incredible advice for your jurisdiction. It is not for all jurisdictions so any teens reading it should take note. In my jurisdiction the prosecutors do not care if the man is a stand up guy and there was consent. They do not care is he will be deported. They do not care if he will be on the sex offender registry for the rest of his life, therefore, limiting his ability to make a living. In every state the age is different, ours is 16 and the older person must be...
