The judge in the case was a friend of the man that accused me. I worked for this man. I thought he was a friend of our family. He kept trying to get me to sleep with him. I played it off as a joke. He told me "one day you will be sorry". I was l...
I am assuming you were found guilty and you have exhausted your appeals? If so, as the other counsel stated, you are not eligible for an expungementSee question
im a 37 year old male. I've been charged with felony distribution of a controlled substance. Schedule 2. This case involves 5 oxycodone pills and 20 dollars. I also have a clean criminal history. This is my first time ever being charged. Am I faci...
Distribution is a very serious charge and you need to hire someone as soon as possible. Also, you should not be sharing you details on line - you are charged with a relatively unique crime in a small jurisdiction.See question
Army. The first time I was hospitalized was because the doctor referred me. I feel like I need to the hospital due to mental health issues but I am scared of being punished by my command. I am in the process of getting out and I do not want to get...
This is a very, very personal question. I think you need more details and you should take advantage of a free consultation. Most of us that practice military law offer them. However, as asked - you should not get in trouble. Also, your life and health are the most important thing. But, just be sure everyone knows your whereabouts. Inform your command. Document whom you call.See question
No prior jail time just cited for excessive noise playing music loudly in my apartment is my only conviction
You need to take some time to find an attorney. They are going to be able to find out what the evidence is against you. In VA a Grand Larceny charge is a 1 to 20 year offense. However, there are sentencing guidelines which advise judges concerning what type of sentence would be appropriate and these are based upon the person's prior criminal record (yours sounds good). However, it is not good to look at sentencing if you are at the beginning of your process. The first step is to see what these charges are about.See question
If I am the victim, can I know the results of the commanders inquiry? If the investigation is taking longer than expected or the results are never known, can the individual who is being affected (the victim) make a claim for failure to investigate...
The inquiry has no specified time limits. But, since you initiated it, you know some of the answers concerning whom you can complain to. But, since race is a factor you also have the unit Equal opportunity representative, who should keep you informed if you filed an investigation through him or her. Also, if things go wrong you can go to the Inspector General's office on post - they also are supposed to have an open door, but will not take a case if another entity, like EO, is doing the investigation. Another concern is if you are being retaliated against. You really need to report that and keep notes on whom you have reported it to. My answer assumes you made the initial complaint against the commander. If someone else made it on your behalf, you do not have as many rights or as many protections and you should consider filing your own complaint with EO.See question
the item is a ladder. I can either get it back or buy him a new one.
Call a local attorney. It would be foolish and probably damage any chance you have with your case to do this alone. If you think you cannot afford an attorney, you might convince the court to appoint an attorney. If one is appointed, that attorney can advise you. But, if you can hire someone now, it may be good to see them quickly so any action an be done before your next hearing.See question
I was recommended for a MEB while on active duty and would like to know if I can reenlist in the reserves with a medical (honorable) discharge. The reason of the MEB was for major depression.
Your question is incomplete. Did the MEB process get completed? We're you medically discharged? Are you currently in the IRR?
Most of the time when you are medically discharged you have a code or a condition which should not allow you to get into the reserves. Your DD214 has the answers in the discharge code section.See question
I recently went to MEPS and swore into the U.S. Air Force. I was 17, and got pulled over in Virginia for Wreckless Driving (Speeding over 80mph in the Interstate). The officer gave me a ticket, and said I had to appear in the Virginia court at the...
Take a deep breath and quit worrying. You Need to out the answers. You can probably find out what the disposition of the case was by doing an on-line search of the virginia courts web site. The correct jurisdiction should indicate whether or not your charge was dismissed. You should look up the jurisdiction where it took place, search your name under traffic or criminal and make sure you don't check "current cases" but check "all cases." This is a quick way to see. However, to be more sure, call the court. You may have to wait on the line a little bit, but they will look it up for you and tell you what the disposition was in their records. If they cannot find the information, you may need some help from a Virginia attorney, but I would try this way first.
While making a false statement on a federal form is a very serious offense, it does not sound like this is what you did. It sounds like you were confused. Reckless driving charges are not the types of offenses the military is concerned about. Also, it is easy to understand that you may have been confused. People often think that traffic misdemeanors don't count.

I had rental property I didn't return so the charge is failure to return rental property
Why don't you give one of the local attorneys a call for a consultation. Many of us will talk to you for free and give you an answer that will be tailored to your facts. I think your question needs more facts to properly answer it and the way you asked it tells me you need someone to ask you the right questions.See question
i was charged with 2 separate charges, both possession of a controlled substance, one charge was for a schedule 3, they other was schedule 1-2. the schedule 1-2 charge was dropped, or at least never went before the judge for it because i helped th...
The attorneys who have answered are exactly right. I just wanted to add that the nolle prossed charge can probably be expunged. But, the charge that was dismissed after you successfully completed the program would most likely not be able to be expunged. This is a hard area for most people to understand, but when you do that program, you normally agree that the evidence would have been sufficient to convict you and there is typically a finding by the judge that this evidence was sufficient to convict. If this is the case, under the current laws this type of dismissal is not able to be expunged.See question
