  • Hi, I need a court disposition on a case from 1990 in orlando florida

    I was charged wit DUI , but dont have any paperwork on it and dont know where to go

    Kenneth’s Answer

    You should contact the clerk of courts in the county where you were charged with the DUI/OVI. They will have the documents you are looking for. Since you have not explained why you need the court documents, I cannot advise as to whether or not you need an attorney.

    Kenneth’s Answer

    You have not been charged with a crime. Do not discuss the facts of this case over the internet, and contact an attorney if you want to discuss situation. These are very serious allegations.

  • How can i get a free expungement form?

    petty theft

    Kenneth’s Answer

    You will need to go to the Clerk of Courts for the jurisdiction where you were convicted. There is typically a nominal fee attached. The fee is for administrative and background check purposes. However, please be advised that you are not eligible for an expungement if you have multiple convictions.

  • I was arrested for felony theft and released on personal bond through a supervised release program. will I get drug tested?

    I was arrested for felony thefr, arraigned, pled not guilty and then released on personal bond through a court supervised release program. I have to check in with a probation officer throughout the duration of the trial. Will I get drug tested, an...

    Kenneth’s Answer

    It all depends on the judge assigned to your case. In some jurisdictions, you will only get drug tested while on pretrial release if you are charged with a drug offense. However, in other jurisdictions, you will get random drug screens for any felony offense. You need to discuss this issue with your attorney.

    The same answer goes for whether you will get violated if you "only" test positive for THC. I have had many clients go to jail in Butler County who tested positive for THC. However, those cases were all in front of one specific judge.

  • Ohio misdemeanor charge haunting me

    I was charge with Obstruction of official Business in the year 2000. It was a stupid incident involving my girlfriend at the time being pulled over and being charged and my refusal to leave the scene. Anyhow I paid my $50 fine and did a week of c...

    Kenneth’s Answer

    You should be able to get this charge expunged, as long as the State does not object. Since Obstructing Official Business is a misdemeanor of the second degree in Ohio, you only needed to wait one year from the termination of your case to file.

    However, you need to be aware that if you are going to be working in a field that involves patients, children or students, your expungement will probably have no relevance, as employers in these types of professions will be able to locate the conviction. I had a past client that found this out the hard way.

    Kenneth’s Answer

    You should be fine regarding your juvenile adjudication; as that is not a criminal conviction. As far as your adult criminal expungement; as long as your future career does not involve children, patients, or law enforcement, you should not have to worry. If it does, your future employer will more than likely find out about your prior history if they perform the appropriate criminal background search.

    Kenneth’s Answer

    I think the first questions you need to answer are( is he mentally capable of committing the crime. You state that your son has issues. Are these issues the result of low IQ, i.e., mentally retarded; or is this the case of an axis I diagnosis, i.e., bi-polar, anxiety, depression, etc.)

    If your son has such sever issues that he cannot help in his own defense, then your son's attorney may want to look into filing a suggestion of incompetency along with a written motion for not guilty by reason of insanity. The end result is that your son will have a forensic work-up performed by by a qualified court ordered doctor. Depending on the result, your son could be placed in a facility such as Summit, which is a locked down mental facility that your son could be placed for up to 6 months.
