  • How to get cdv spunged from your records

    A CDV (misdemeanor) over six years can it get spunged off your records..

    Bobby’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    CDV 1st offense can be expunged after 5 years, if there are no other convictions on your record. There is no question about this and we have done it many times. Call any South Carolina attorney who handles expungements and they can help you get this done.

    Do not take legal advice from out of state attorneys. The prior answer, posted by an attorney licensed in Virginia, was incorrect.

    A CDV 1st offense can be expunged 5 years after the date of conviction, if you have no other convictions on your record. In you case, if there are no other convictions, it can be expunged after the date of conviction in 2016.

  • Is it possible to get a manufacturing and delivery of marijuana expunged off a record?

    My fiancée caught the case in 2001 and he is trying to get it expunged of his record. He pled no contest the second day of trial. He is currently in the federal prison on a different charge.

    Bobby’s Answer

    Only if he was sentenced under the Youthful Offender Act (YOA) and he has no other convictions since. If he was convicted since and is serving time on a federal charge, he cannot get it expunged even if it was a YOA sentence. His only option is to apply for a pardon, and he would want to wait some time after the federal sentence is finished before applying.

  • My husband has an ICE hold, has been bonded out, but has not yet been picked up by ICE. He has been in the state jail for over

    a week. How can I get him released into ICE custody to see if we can then get him bonded out of ICE.

    Bobby’s Answer

    They must release him if ICE has not picked him up after 48 hours after posting bond on his state charges. They often will not release him unless an attorney goes down there and makes it happen.

    Bobby’s Answer

    You need an attorney to help you. Also, if you are charged in Horry County you will not get a public defender for a shoplifting 1st offense, so you will need to retain an attorney if you want one.

    Bobby’s Answer

    The disorderly conduct charge can be expunged three years after the conviction. It is not automatic - you have to file the paperwork and make it happen. An attorney can help you with this if they do expungements, or you can get it done on your own through the solicitor's office in the county that you were convicted in.

    Bobby’s Answer

    in general, a burglary 1st degree is not eligible for PTI, although we have had it happen a few times. You need to follow your attorney's advice unless and until you retain private counsel - your attorney knows your case. Attorneys on this forum do not know your case and cannot advise you as to what will happen in your case.

    If you have already told them you did not take the money, stop talking to the police now. Polygraphs are not what you think - they are an interrogation tool and rarely benefit the defendant. Stop talking to the police, stop thinking about a polygraph, and if you think you are going to be charged, retain a defense lawyer in your area.
