    Do not handle this alone. Go today to your county,s public defender if you can not afford private counsel. Best advise I can offer. Good luck!

    Attempted theft is a 2nd degree misdemeanor. Your friend ought to find a criminal defense attorney to lead him/her through the process. Chance to do a diversion program exists. If successful charge will be dismissed. Worth the effort. Hope this is helpful.

    Call a good attorney. Hopefully this is a first and only violation. Your attorney may well arrange your surrender and a prompt hearing date. What happens to you depends on the facts of your case, the Judge, and your record. Your case is important and needs proper care.

    Everyone makes a mistake in life. Fortunately as you state there may be a diversion program available to you. Hire a good attorney locally. He or she will guide you through the process. In essence you probably will have to admit the offense, but your guilty plea will be held in abeyance pending your successful completion of the requirements of diversion. Once completed, the charge is dimissed and you may seal the record of the arrest. Good luck, I hope you find this helpful.

    Yes, provided however that one year has passed since your conviction or the termination from probation whichever is later. The process is not complicated. There is a filing fee due the Clerk of Courts, an application for expungement is filed, a report on your eligibility is prepared for the Court and there is unusally just one hearing. Hope this is helpful.

    The decision is up to your sentencing Judge, who, in turn will likely consult your PO for his/her recommendation. Do not try to file this yourself as it is unlikely the Court will grant it.

    The Court has the power to recall the capias. However you should contact a good criminal defense attorney who knows his/her way around this Court. It is likely there is a cash bond, and the Judge may want a good explanation why it took six months. Good luck.
