  • Well Minn go out of state to get you after sentencing on a gross misdemeanor

    sentence was 2 years probation no drinking drugs ordered to get psycosexual eval

    Max’s Answer

    A warrant will def'ly issue. Whether they want to spend the $ to come and get you, IF you are ever apprehended in another state, depends on all the facts and circumstances existing at THAT time. Call an Tough Experienced DWI atty. ASAP.

    Max’s Answer

    What the other attys. said is correct. This is a VERY complicated area of law. The means by which you enter Candada (car, plane, etc.) should not matter. However WHERE you enter may matter bec. for example at Niagra Falls they may be stict or less strict than Int'l Falls, etc. The word on the street is that individual border agents have a lot of discretion or leeway in this area of admitting people w/DWI's.

    Max’s Answer

    You may have to testify, it all depends: depends on a number of things including whether the Defendant/probationer admits the violation at the 1st hearing and whether the Prosecutor thinks the State needs your testimony. If the violation is admitted, then you would not need to testify.

    Max’s Answer

    As the others said, this is a Very Big Deal, and the mandatory sentence is supposed to be 5 years or 60 months, although some judges will sentence people below that if the right circumstances exist and are properly argued by a skilled attorney.

    Max’s Answer

    As the other atty's stated, this case is ripe for an expungement. Under the new law taking effect January 1, you *may* be able to get ALL your records expungesd, including arrest/jail/booking/BCA records Even if you only get an expungement of judical branch records (court records) it should eliminate this "felony probation viol." problem. Call a highly rated Avvo. atty. tomorrow for a consult.

  • Gross misdemeanor 5th degree in January 2012(sexual contact), can it be expunged

    I was convicted in January 2012 of gross misdemeanor 5th degree, I attended a sexual education class and 1 year probation, and 12 days stc. I have completed all that needs to be done and I am filing for expungement right now because I can't just ...

    Max’s Answer

    An offense requiring sex offender registration cannot be expunged. Typically 5th degree crim. sex. conduct does NOT require registration but I would need to know more facts. Also, you have not been off of probation for long enough that it is *likely* that you could get it expunged now. Also, the expungment law is chaning on January 1, 2015 in ways that probably both help and hurt you. Since this is all obviously complicated, you need to consult w/an atty. asap by phone and/or in person.
