    No because not everyone is arrested for petit theft. You would know if you were arrested. If you have not been to the jail then you can answer no to the arrested or conviction questions.

    Yes, the prosecutor can amend the charge. Look at the statute on your ticket. That is what controls right now. DUI is a bit of a hybrid as it is not a true first or second degree misdemeanor. Here is a link with some of the more common questions from someone in your situation. Good luck. http://www.brycefetter.com/DUI_FAQ.html

    Yes. But that doesn't mean the state has an open and shut case.....they have to prove that you knew the cops were trying to pull you over...as you can not flee if you don't know you where being stopped...a lot of facts go into this...distance, time of day, did you run into your house, etc. Good luck.

    No, they can't force anything. That decision is solely up to the State Attorney's Office.

    Pre-trial diversion (PTD) is offered by the State Attorney's Office. Each State Attorney creates and administers their own program. So it depends. 6 months in Orange County and 9 months in Seminole County. That is from when you sign your contract and the approval process can take up to 90 days. Good luck. www.BryceFetter.com

  7. I would like to get Felony charge expunged ( and yes it is Adjudification Withheld ) even though i have a minor charge.

    Your defense attorney should have inquired about your prior record before advising you of expungement. Any attorney that practices even a little amount of criminal law would have done this. This is a very basic step in sealing/expungement eligibility. And even if otherwise eligible, you can only seal a charge that you plea to, not expunge it. . Fleeing requires a mandatory adjudication so at least you are not a convicted felon. You could try to vacate your plea but that is not always the...

    Your probation can be modified or terminated at any point but as a general rule you have to complete half of your probationary sentence before the judge will terminate your probation. Community control is more restrictive than probation so stick with probation. Good luck. www.BryceFetter.com

  9. Will a Wisconsin DUI (1st offense, which is only a civil matter) show up on an out of state employer background check?

    It depends on what kind of background check they run and where they pull the information from. There is no single database where information is pulled from so there is no way of knowing with certainty. If this was a Florida offense then I would have you run your own background check with FDLE. If there is a similar statewide agency in Wisconsin then run your record there to see what shows. Good luck. www.BryceFetter.com www.BryceFetter
