    If you don't remember the specifics of your prior charge, you shouldn't make any assumptions. It is up to the government to prove if you had any prior. Even if you do have a prior Reckless, this still only counts as your first DUI. Regardless, with proper representation, you may avoid sentencing all together, let alone jail. You can't get jail, or any other sentence, if you are not convicted. A good attorney will utilize your due process rights to maximize the chance that the case gets...

    You should hire an attorney as soon as possible. It sounds like you were given a Notice to Appear in court for an Arraignment. The police will forward your paperwork to the State. Ideally, you should have an attorney advocating for you during the intake of the case, which may affect whether you are charged. The State may file a first degree misdemeanor P.Theft charge. This is punishable by up to 1 year in jail, a $1000 fine, and 1 year probation. That doesn't mean you will get these...

    It will be to your advantage to expunge your record, assuming you are eligible. Fortunately, this is a relatively low fee/cost service. Whether you are eligible for expungement of your record, or to what extent this will help you, depends on many factors. You may call my office to discuss expunging your record, at 407-426-5757. Whether it is worth putting a deposit down on the apartment depends on your willingness to risk the loss of the deposit if you are declined. Please note, an...

    You will want to hire an attorney to do this for you. It is relatively inexpensive. Your attorney can apply for early termination of your community control portion of the sentence, usually after 6 months, so that you can commence the probation period. At about the half way point of the probationary period, you can again apply for early termination of the probation. This assumes you are at least current or have satified all conditions of probation, and are otherwise in good standing with no...

    The type of charge you may face is a felony and is punishable by prison. But, with good representation, you may avoid a conviction and not get any jail/prison. Nothing can be done to you if you aren't convicted. You need to hire an attorney to give you the best chance of not getting charged or convicted - or at least get you the best plea resolution possible. If you are convicted, much depends on your score sheet. Feel free to contact my office at 800-426-5758, or go to our website at the...

    You are not likely to get jail, but you might. Even still, you are setting yourself up for problems if you don't get an attorney to help you. Without representation, you will definately be missing out on getting the best outcome for you. The charge is Petit "petty" Theft. For a first offense with an amount under $100, it is a second degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to a $500 fine, 60 days jail, and 6 months probation, as well as a 6 month driver's license suspension, if you are...

    We can help you. It appears you are being investigated for a possible DUI charge and that you have been provided with the notice required by law before the State can subpoena your medical records. We can object to the issuance of the subpoena for your records and seek to quash it, but must act within 10 days. We can determine what the status otherwise is of the criminal investigation. We can work to prevent you from getting charged with a crime. We can let you know what is going on if you...

    A record is a recording of events. It is a public record, unless you are a juvenile, even if the court withholds adjudication. What many people mean when they ask whether they have a record is to ask whether they have a criminal conviction. If the court withholds adjudication, you are not a convicted felon, per se, but it is on your record. You should consult with a health care licensing attorney regarding the ramifications of such on your career plans.
