    She cannot be arrested for shoplifting if she was merely in the store and did not attempt to conceal, tamper with merchandise or leave the store with merchandise. She will however be arrested for trespassing.

    Fight. You have to fight the ticket. If indeed you stopped and provided insurance information you should not have been cited. This offense could have serious license implications so be very careful.

    The statute of limitations on most felonies is four years so the fact that two years have passed does not provide a basis for dismissal. Some crimes have no statute of limitations while others don’t start running until the crime is uncovered. There are actions that can be taken to move your case along. You should hire an attorney to help you with this.

    Probationers generally have no say in who their probation officer is. The officers are assigned by courtroom and sometimes by case type and unless their job functions change or they quit you are stuck with them. You can try speaking with the chief but that will likely make things worse.

  6. Is a second DUI or reduced charge to wet reckless driving a crime of moral tripitude ?

    The statutes that govern immigration and criminal cases treat the issue of moral turpitude differently. To be safe, you should consult an immigration attorney to make sure your status is protected. With regard to the criminal case, you should not enter a plea until an attorney has fully evaluated your case and advised you that it is in your best interest to plea. An arrest does not equal guilt.

  7. Does the preliminary breath test count in court if I refused the state test?

    The roadside breath test number is not admissible in court. The officer will instead say you were positive or negative for the presence of alcohol based on the roadside test. A DUI refusal has severe license consequences so you need an attorney as soon as possible.

    I agree with the previous attorneys that it is impossible to provide a definitive answer based solely on the information you have provided. I would have to see the police report before any real advice can be provided. With that said, I always tell my clients that the little crimes that you cave to and plea to today acts as aggravation against you later. You should never plea to anything you are not guilty of or the State can’t prove, regardless of how minor it appears to be. There are always...

    If you fight the charge and win then nothing will happen. If you decide to enter a plea then you would be eligible for first offender probation which allows you the opportunity to keep your record clean if you are successful in the program.
