I have a minor domestic charge on my criminal record that I would like expunged, can this be done. It's been over 10 years.
Yes. You should hire a lawyer to file a petition for expungement on your behalf. You will have to have your fingerprints run and provide adequate notice to the Prosecution/Attorney General. An expungement request is not automatically granted. The Judge that will review the request will be the Judge that sentenced your originally, or a Judge that succeeded that Judge if he or she is no longer handling your case. The petition should contain information about the positive things that you have done with your life since the time that you were convicted of the domestic violence. Good luck.See question

You can seek the assistance of a civil lawyer to pursue a lawsuit against her. It will be up to the civil lawyer if he or she will take your case, or you could self represent., You should be very cautious, and you should not self represent in this type of lawsuit. Filing a lawsuit may subject you to interrogatories, requests to produce documents, and depositions. Failure to comply with discovery requests in a civil lawsuit can lead to a dismissal of the case and/or monetary sanctions. Any statements that you make (in a civil lawsuit or otherwise) could potentially be used against you n a criminal prosecution. Just because the prosecutor denied the CSC charge now does not bar the prosecution from pursuing it against you later (up and until the date of any statute of limitation).See question

The problem with Facebook and social media is that it puts your life into public view, which sometimes can have negative repercussions. The use of photographs in the public domain is totally legal. The main job of the police is to build cases from the existing evidence. The discovery of new evidence commonly is a reason why the prosecution will pursue a case that it previously decided to leave alone. However, it sounds like you have defensible issues if your case was prosecuted. My recommendation would be to hire an experienced lawyer, and discuss your case only with the lawyer that you hire.See question

In terms of the result that you get, a lot depends upon the following: the quality of your defense lawyer; the Judge assigned to your case; the county where your case is being prosecuted; your age; your ability to pay restitution; your prior record; the specific facts of your case. The odds are greater than not that you can avoid incarceration.
An embezzlement conviction on your record can prevent you from gaining employment and pursuing certain careers. It seems that you made some bad decisions before, and it is time for you to start making some smart decisions. This whole case can effect your life. Hire an experienced criminal lawyer immediately.See question
Probation Officer said I had forged AA verification, so I obtained proof of verification to show it's legitimate. Since giving her proof she's pointing out more that she thinks could be falsified, dates from two months ago. I feel like since provi...
The probation officer can always amend the probation violation. The probation officer is required to let you and your lawyer know about the changes so that the allegations can be addressed fully with the court.
When it comes to a probation violation, especially allegations such as forgery/falsification you need an experienced lawyer to help you. Often a court will be harsher on an allegation such as forgery/falsification (if established) because the alleged effort of forgery/falsification attacks the integrity of the judicial process.See question
I'm trying to take care of these warrants so I won't have to look over my shoulder and I'm trying to get a divorce also do I have to pay money and if so can i find out how much before I go up there to court
The only way to address a probation violation warrant is to appear in Court. For most probation violations there is a risk of jail if you are convicted of violating your probation. You have a right to court appointed counsel if you cannot afford to hire a lawyer. Hiring a lawyer, if you can afford one, is a wise investment in your future.See question

The Judge may have set a cash bond at the time you failed to appear. The Court where you failed to appear may be able to tell you what your bond amount is. Given that this is a DUI 2nd, you already failed to appear, and you have a lot to lose (your job, etc.) you should hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to help you.See question

Ultimately the decision as to whether or not your boyfriend tenders a plea to the charge(s) or goes to trial is up to him. Your boyfriend is free to disregard his attorney's advice. Your boyfriend should discuss with his lawyer the reasons why his lawyer is suggesting him to plead no contest and decide for himself whether or not those reasons are legitimate. The lawyer should have the objectivity, experience, and knowledge of the law to properly advise your boyfriend.
The rationale that you provide for the prosecutor to recuse himself does not have a legitimate basis to be granted.See question
