From my record permanently
I would need to know much more about your situation before you could be given any type of reliable answer to your question. Prior record? Amount of loss or damages? What county and who is the judge?
No matter what the answers are to the above questions, getting one or more felonies reduced to a misdemeanor is an uphill battle. Your best hope is with a great criminal defense attorney. Avvo is an excellent place to locate a 10.0 rated criminal defense lawyer and many of us will offer a free consultation.See question
I don't know cause I didn't go to any of the classes but I got court soon should I go or not go
You already know you made a big mistake by not complying with the terms of your probation. The only question is whether your next move is going to be to make an even bigger mistake or not? If you made the right choice and deal with your situation by facing the judge, you will be able to get on with your life sooner rather than later and from an even worse place.
The second question is whether your going to face the judge alone or with a lawyer. A good criminal defense lawyer gives you your best chances of minimizing the damages. If you cannot afford a good attorney, you can and should ask for a court appointed lawyer right away.

Hello, I recently found out by going to Secretary of State to get my license that I had a misdemeanor traffic ticket warrant in Detroit from back in 2008. I live in Bay City and have absolutely no way to get to Detroit to clear this up in order to...
If there is a warrant in Detroit (36th District Court), there is likely an dollar amount that is associated with the bond. If you hire a lawyer, he or she can post the bond for you and get the warrant set aside. After that is done, the lawyer can talk with the City Attorney or Wayne County Prosecutor (depending on whether it is a state or city case) and negotiate a resolution. Pleas on misdemeanors in most district courts can be done through the mail if a mutually agreeable resolution is reached.

I got a traffic ticket recently for speeding up to get through a yellow light. Someone told me to plea NOLO when I appear in court to avoid getting points on my license. Is this true? And if not, what's the best course of action I could take in or...
Pleading NOLO is the same as RESPONSIBLE for all intensive purposes. You get the full points and fine. Your best bet is to have a lawyer who is familiar with that court and handling traffic matters attempt to get rid of the points and attempt to have the ticket changed to something that does not go on your motor vehicle record (so you do not get increased insurance rates). Although it is unfortunate to have to hire a lawyer, the cost of the attorney will be less than the cost of the insurance increase and the traffic record that will prevent you from getting any decent deals in the future.See question
My grandfather was on hospice and other members of my family we're taking prescription medication. I went to visit him the day he died, subsequently said medication came up missing. I have a criminal history, so naturally my family banned together...
The attorney who gave you the advice to talk with the detective without counsel gave you very bad advice. Any lawyer with any experience in criminal defense would strongly advise you not to do anything without the advice and assistance of qualified, experienced criminal defense counsel. If you are being investigated for the theft of controlled substances, there are several felony offenses that are potentially being considered. You need a good attorney right away to help you.

Yesterday I was arrested for shoplifting. After I got to the police station but before I went to the jail I admitted I had Xanax on me. Today to my total shock the released me PFI. They said "the detective who arrested you is not pressing charges"...
Your only hope of not being charged or being charged with an offense less than what you would otherwise be charged with is if you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney right away to try and intervene.See question

What about this? How about getting the case in Ferndale taken care of so that this is no longer an issue for you. If you get stopped anywhere, the officer will have discretion to take you into custody on the Ferndale warrant. Just hire an attorney and get rid of the improper charge.

Very unlikely that any lawyer would take a case like this pro bono. When an appointed lawyer can be paid by the court, it wouldn't make much sense for an attorney to do a case like this without charge. Your brother has 42 days from his sentencing date to request court appointed counsel.See question
