I'm not sure what the current situation is but if it involves a prosecutor, then you should have your own attorney, unless you are making the mistake of representing yourself. The prosecutor should not be able to use any conviction overturned on appeal. He should know the status of the convi ction before trying to use it against you. You or your attorney can certainly bring that to the attention of the court. You need counsel, so get one if you haven't already done so.
The attorney representing your friend/acquaintance can handle the process of having the bond revoked on the 1st case so that the bond is released and he gets credit for the time he is spending in custody on both cases.
When you pled to this charge you agreed to pay joint and several restitution with the co-defendants. What that means is you are responsible for your part, and the whole. As it turns out, your co-defendants have not fulfilled their part of paying the restitution, so you are now on the hook for the whole. It's unfortunate, but an appeal will not bring you relief. The law recognizes that victims are to be made whole as part of the sentencing process.
A first violation hearing is usually just an arraignment hearing. If you do not admit the violation, it will be set for an evidentiary hearing ( like a bench trial) in the near future. If you have a new law violation or just a technical violation, that can impact how you choose to handle iit. You should consult with an attorney right away to understand your options and make a decision on how to proceed.
It sounds like your cousin already resolved his case with a plea since he is obligated to pay restitution. There is little to be done now that the case is resolved. He should have fought the charge as self-defense initially.
You should be notified in writing of a new court date regarding any PTI rejection. There is a reasonable chance of getting back into PTI if you are addressing your substance abuse issues voluntarily. A lawyer can advocate for you to get you back in PTI but if that fails, your alternative may be to plead to the charge and accept probation. I would talk to a lawyer about your options in that particular county and the regular practice of the courts there.
Most likely your son will qualify for a juvenile diversion program which will result in dismissal of this charge. It will not follow him as juvenile cases drop from his record at age 24. Otherwise, his juvenile record is not open to the public. He likely has more of an issue with the high school transcript and the suspension which will affect his college choices.
If your Mom was found guilty and adjudicated by the court, she cannot seal or expunge this arrest. If, however, she received a withhold of adjudication, she might be eligible to seal the record. She must not have any other criminal conviction or local ordinance violation as an adult or juvenile anywhere in the world. If she has something else that resulted in an adjudication, she cannot do anything else with this record. Talk to a lawyer experienced in doing sealing and expungment work to...
Your question does not indicate which arrest you are seeking to expunge? You can only seek to expunge or seal one case, either the 2009 or 2010 case, not both because there was an intervening arrest. I would suggest you try to expunge the theft since that is likely more detrimental to your future than the marijuana charge. There is a $75.00 application fee, plus a filing fee paid to the clerk of court in the county where the case originated. The costs run about $150 to $200 or more...
