Hi. I was applying for an uber job as a driver. However, they denied me because of my background check. They sent me the report and the resisting arrest was misdemeanor. The DWLS, however, was the clincher that got me denied. Now, those two charge...
In order to expunge your record, the charges you wish to have expunge must have been dismissed. In addition, if you've ever been adjudicated guilty (convicted), you cannot seal or expunge your record. I suggest you contact an attorney and review your record and background with him in order to determine what, if anything, you might be able to do to give yourself the best opportunities to succeed in your job search.See question
A buddy of mine recently got arrested for 6 counts of armed robbery with a deadly weapon, what kind of time is he facing? By the way this is his first offence but would that matter considering he has so many counts? and what is the best possible o...
Robbery with a deadly weapon is a 1st degree felony, punishable by life in prison. In our criminal justice system, it doesn't get much more serious and the punishment rarely gets more severe. What he's actually facing and what his options are is a far more complicated and lengthy discussion that ought to take place between your friend and his lawyer. If he doesn't have a lawyer, he needs to secure one as soon as possible.See question
I have a dv charge that was dismissed after a completion of anger management. I also have some misdemeanor traffic violation, I want to expunge the dv. Would I be able to do this?
Several factors determine eligibility for sealing or expunging your record. First, the offenses you wish to address must meet the eligibility requirements. Second, you can’t have any convictions on your record from prior offenses. Third, to have your record expunged, the charges must have been dismissed. To have your record sealed, you must have received a withhold of adjudication. An adjudication of guilt (a conviction) will disqualify you from the process. If the charges were dismissed, you’ll want to have your record expunged, not sealed. Expungement is the deletion of the record and it offers you better protection from prying eyes. Finally, you can’t have applied for a sealing or expunging in the past. You’re only permitted to do it once in your lifetime, with the only exception being a juvenile matter that was administratively expunged following a diversion program.See question
and only filed on the misdemeanors...but i read about if the case is over 90 days old it will be dismissed, so since the felonies were not filed on , and i just have the misdemeanors, and speedy goes away nexy week monday will my case get dismisse...
You might have an argument that the charges are belated and should be dismissed if the misdemeanor charges were filed 90 days or more after your arrest. If you have a lawyer, speak with him or her about your options. If you don't have a lawyer, I recommend you consult with a few and hire one so you can give yourself the best opportunity to resolve this case in your favor.See question
Im looking to find an attorney that offers payment plans.
Yes, it is possible to secure a bond even after being denied one at First Appearance. A bond motion will need to be filed and set for hearing before the judge assigned to the case. This can usually be done within a matter of days, so the sooner you decide on legal counsel, the sooner you'll be able to have the hearing scheduled. Many lawyers offer payment plans. Avvo does not permit us to get into payments/fees on line so you'll need to contact the attorneys that you are interested in speaking with separately to discuss those issues.See question

As for how you go about it, I recommend hiring an attorney. Even with a lawyer, the process is likely to take roughly six (6) to eight (8) months. That said, a lawyer will know how to best handle it and prevent it from taking a wrong turn.See question
Will clean work in office anything available she's not working and can only do hours while her daughter is in scool
Typically, here in Orange County, you can do community service hours at any nonprofit agency or entity. You need to make sure that she has her hours documented by a supervisor or they won't count. She cannot do community service hours for a business.See question
When I called my Bf phone, a cop answered and said he was being arrested for a warrant. However online it says there is no warrant issued.
Yes, not all warrants are available to the public. I suggest you keep an eye on the jail website & within a couple hours, you should be able to see him in the system. You can also contact a lawyer to help you look into it.See question

What may or should happen is purely speculative at this point, as there is insufficient information about the facts and circumstances of your case to have a meaningful conversation about it. I recommend you speak with several lawyers that practice in the county where the case is pending and hire the best one for your case. With more information and a better understanding of your case, an attorney should be able to give you a feel for what you can expect. No one can guarantee you a dismissal.See question

Two issues: First, you posted this question under criminal defense and it's a question better posed to a Person Injury lawyer. Second, the disposition of the citation should have no impact on the insurance company's ability to address your claim. I suggest you speak with and if possible, retain a lawyer to assist you. I have marked this question as a Person Injury matter so you might get more direct, qualified replies.See question
