    Generally speaking if you retain a lawyer he/she should be able to file a motion for early termination of probation. At that hearing, testimony can be presented to try to convince the judge to terminate probation.

    I'm assuming that it's the same police department that issued the two tickets (in other words, you are going to the same courthouse), if so....while it may be more convenient to go ahead and pay the tickets, you will probably have a decent chance to get one of them dismissed in court. I would call the clerk of court to find out what the fine is. If the fine is fairly minimal, it may be just easier to pay the fine on both tickets instead of going to court since court may take all day. In most...

  3. I was charged with assault in ohio in 2010 but have since moved to florida. The court set a trial date. What happens now?

    The fact that you moved to Florida is legally meaningless. If you don't appear in court, a warrant will be issued. I'm not exactly procedurally sure what happened in your case since you didn't provide any information, but after arrest there's an arraignment where you plead guilty or not guilty. Based on how you described things, it appears that you were arraigned (but again I don't know since you didn't give a clear explanation). Once you plead not guilty at arraignment, the next step is...

  4. What will happen if you go on the run from probation as a juvenile?

    Don't do it. If you stop reporting, a warrant will be issued and you will be eventually be arrested and end up in jail/juvenile detention. Unless you prefer incarceration over probation, I would suggest you don't skip.

    Unless you were court ordered not to have contact with him (but it sounds like you completed your sentence anyway), nothing prevents you from visiting him in prison. His sentence may restrict him from having contact with you but I doubt that's the case. Check the court records for his sentencing conditions. Some jails/prisons have certain rules that restrict children from visiting an inmate (it may depend on the age and relationship of the child to the inmate). I would call the jail/prison...

    Different folks/organizations have different access levels to criminal records. Law enforcement and prosecutors have the highest and can see all arrest records, convictions, etc. Potential employers, websites...have a lower access level to GCIC. In those instances, someone being on first offender would not pop up. There is a $10-$25 fee, but you can to your local sheriff's office and they can run your criminal history.

    That is probably the worst decision you can make. Leaving the state will not help you at all. A warrant will be issued and you will eventually be arrested and may end up in a worse situation. Contact your lawyer and follow his/her advice.

  8. I was pulled over by the cops and they found drugs included marijuana, mushrooms, and MDMA. Then released after they seized.

    You can get arrested after the initial encounter. Typically, in your scenario (car stop), the police will arrest or cite people at the scene although they don't really have to. What happens from here on, is that the police will forward their paperwork to the prosecutor's office and the prosecutor will decide whether they will formerly charge you (usually via indictment) with anything. Depending on the location of the drugs in relation to the people in the car (and who owns the car and who...

  9. What can I do? Please help

    I would need more information before I can give you an answer. But based on what you provided, in many instances, someone on probation is subject to random drug testing. So it may be that probation has the right to test your brother. If he tests positive then he's obviously in violation of his probation and his probation may be revoked. As to how much time, that decision is up to the sentencing judge.

  10. Do I have a case if I was denied a job due to 1st Offenders Act ?

    I'm not exactly sure what your question is. If you are asking whether you have any rights against a potential employer that is refusing to hire you because you had a first offender case from years ago, the short answer Is no. But again I'm not sure if that answers your question.
