    Although I don't see a question I will offer some advice. First, stop offering statements about your case in a public forum and consult a lawyer. If you were my client I would have advised you not to talk about the specifics of your case, especially regarding your intent on the day in question. Secondly, misdemeanor theft in Tennessee carries a potential punishment of 11/29, and the two can be run consecutively to one another. Not to mention this is a crime of dishonesty which will affect future employment opportunities. Resisting in Tennessee is a B misdemeanor with 6 months' exposure. Consult a lawyer and try to get these off your record.

    Yes, if not the only way. Your issue is not uncommon but slightly complex, and you'll need to hire an attorney familiar with both areas to navigate the legal waters. It may not be too late, depending on the circumstances. Good luck!

  • What kind of time would you get for a second offense criminal impersonation and second offense driving on suspended

    I said that I was my brother when I got pulled over twice , I already got in trouble for the first one and now I'm going for the second one, the exact same charges. Driving on suspended and criminal impersonation, what should,d I expect

    Chase’s Answer

    Time to lawyer up in Bristol. Once again you're facing a 6 month jail penalty and fines for each new charge, as they are both B misdemeanors. I'm also concerned as to whether or not you agreed to a probationary period for the prior charges, which would increase you exposure. Bottom line, with repeat charges dealing with "crimes of dishonesty," you need to hire a lawyer or make an appointment with a public defender soon. Good luck

  • What is the fee and will i go to jail?

    I was caught shoplifting for the first time and so I received a misdemeanor citation and was given a booking date to attend court.

    Chase’s Answer

    You're potentially facing 11 months and 29 days in jail, not to mention a conviction on your criminal record. There are ways around this, with greatly improved chances if you hire a lawyer. The fact that you have no record helps take some of the sting away. Give a lawyer a call in your area. Good luck!

    Chase’s Answer

    Careful about saying too much in this public forum. Your best interests include contacting a lawyer soon if criminal charges ensue. As you are already aware, you're likely facing 11 months and 29 days in jail, but apart from that you're also looking a crime of dishonesty on your record.

  • I got a misdemeanor citation....on my court date it says I will be booked, does that mean I will be taken to jail?

    It was for theft...total was $159.00

    Chase’s Answer

    The booking process itself is nothing to fear. You simply arrive with your citation to have your prints and photo taken so that they may update your information in the system. Failure to show up for this process, however, will result in a warrant for your arrest. Conveniently, Knox County allows you to get booked and manage your charges both in the same day. For this reason, you need to have a lawyer in your corner before your booking date. Theft under $500 is an A misdemeanor carrying up to 11 months and 29 days in jail, not to mention a "crime of dishonesty" that will haunt your resume.

    Chase’s Answer

    Discuss this situation with your PO first - he or she may have some favorable options for you. Otherwise you'll be issued an arrest warrant for violation of probation if you leave the jurisdiction.
