    Mark’s Answer

    You should be able to access the investigative reports or warrants to uncover the facts surrounding your arrest. trafficking does not require you to be in physical possession of illegal substances.

    Too many unknown facts to advise you effectively but the charges are serious enough you should avoid doing anything and consult with an attorney. There may be legal issues that would otherwise be overlooked if you try this yourself.

  • Will I get jail time for violation of felony probation. It's 10-11 yrs old and it's for 2 counts of class d check fraud.

    I was placed on 2 yrs probation for class d check fraud on 2 counts. I moved out of state. It was 10-11 years ago. I really want to clear this up without doing jail time. In cases like this what is the likeliness of me not having to do any jail time?

    Mark’s Answer

    What did you do that would cause you to be revoked? Did you fail to report or complete your conditions? Is the probation still open (has it been tolled)?

    Mark’s Answer

    Sounds like they have already charged you; you have plead guilty and been sentenced. The answer to your question appears to be a resounding yes. How it happened is likely a question that only your attorney can answer accurately.

  • I'm on nonreportin probation got a new charge of theft & a warrant out- will I have a bond- Dekalb- will probation know?

    I have a felony 2003 and a mism of theft. Im on non reporting probation. Was told Dekalb is slow do I could bail out on new charge without probation knowing. Is this true. How do warrants work. I was told I could not have warrant lifted. Why not? ...

    Mark’s Answer

    You have a lot of questions that cause me to believe it would be much better for you to sit down with an attorney and go through all of these questions and determine your next best step. If you truly cannot afford to hire an attorney, a public defender will be appointed to represent you when you are in jail. I would not expect the warrant to get lifted. How warrants work; well that might take a while but the bottom line is an officer (or not) swears before a magistrate to certain facts that cause a judge to sign a warrant. Preset bond: determined by the charges, amount of theft, judge, and other factors. Higher than normal, it depends.. I guess I could go on with this but suggest you speak with someone to get the help you need. We are all here to help. Best of luck to you.
