A discharge of probation is what you are looking for. The discharge will usually say ""with compliance" or "with improvement" or " successful fulfillment". You should ask the court for this since you we're compliant and such a form may be needed in the future to prove your cooperation and rehabilitation. Congratulations.

I would bet that the police report for the DUI will contain at least one or more other reasons for the traffic stop. It is my opinion that many traffic stops for DUI occur after the bars close, I believe the police pull over many vehicles on a hunch that they will nab a drunk driver. The police report will contain the officers observations and reasons for the stop. A complete in-car police video of the traffic stop may help you though. This is another area where the police control the...
Thank you for your post. Without prejudice is a legal term which in layman's terms means that the case can be reinstated in the future. Your post is loaded with legal issues which I will only be able to touch upon with this answer.
First of all, you may be charged based upon a case that was dismissed without prejudice, even years later. Your attorney arguments may be:
1. Statute of Limitations (usually 6 years for a felony and 2 years for a misdemeanor). However, if you absconded...
This is a slippery slope but you may need a private lawyer (not your husband's) to advise you. Ethically an attorney cannot advise someone to disobey a court notice, subpoena or order. All too often the court's see cases like yours where after a spouse is charged with domestic violence and the other party says it was a misunderstanding and wants it dismissed. As already mentioned, you can be charged with filing a false police report in this scenario. Your husband's attorney may not want to even...

What happens to my record after my criminal charge is expunged or dismissed?
A record on the LEIN system will be suppressed if the criminal charge(s) are expunged or dismissed pursuant to HYTA, MCL 333.7411 or MCL 769.4a. Please notice that I used the word "suppressed", not "erased". When a record is suppressed, there is technically no public record of the case. However, a permanent "non-...
We are criminal defense lawyers at the ABDO LAW FIRM. Ususally we are on the other side of these matters. But, you have stated a very good case to file with the police for possible criminal stalking. Save your emails, texts and phone recordings for the police. Here is a copy of Michigan's stalking statute for your information. Good luck.
(1) As used in this section:
(a) “Course of conduct” means a pattern of conduct composed of a series of 2 or more separate...
I feel your pain. Fortunately, you may be eligible for YTA (Youthful Trainee Act, applies to offenders age 17 but less tan 21) or the Oakland County First Offender Program. Even with these programs, you can expect to be place on reporting probation. If you comply with the conditions of your probation, you can earn a dismissal. The record is not available for public view if it is dismissed pursuant to YTA but I cannot say what will show up on your record if you get the Oakland County First...
In Michigan, a license is revoked upon obtaining 2 drinking and driving convictions within 7 years or obtaining 3 drinking and driving convictions within 10 years. A person who is revoked for drinking and driving is known as a habitual offender of Michigan drinking and driving laws or a repeat offender. For example, if you have a conviction of Impaired Driving and another convction for OWI within 7 years, you face mandatory revocation of your license. A first time revocation is for a minimum...
You should get help with matter from a qualified attorney that has experience practicing before the Administrative Appeals Section of the Michigan Secretary of State. The State classifies you as a "habitual violator" of the DUI laws and will require you to meet a strict burden of proof.
