  • Can the police do a warrentless search for a person who didn't go to court if I give them consent to come in and talk to me

    They asked to come in and talk to me but started searching my apartment when they got inside

    Zaid’s Answer

    No they can not search your home. Giving law enforcement consent to walk into your house does not translate into consent to search. Whenever consent is given law enforcement must not go outside the scope of that consent.

  • I was cited for the theft of consumable goods. I was not arrested but have a court date pending. Do I need to have a lawyer?

    I was not arrested - no finger prints etc. I have no priors. The charge was retail theft - consumable goods, value $60 Do I need to have a defense attorney with me for my scheduled court date?

    Zaid’s Answer

    You do need a defense attorney. If the charge results in a conviction it will be on your record. With that being said there are ways to avoid a conviction on your record. Deferred prosecution is a program for first time offenders. With this program you may have to do community service and if you complete the community service charges will be dismissed. You can also request court supervision after 2 years you will be able to expunge the offense from your record. It goes without saying that deferred prosecution is the best option.

  • Can a class 3 felony forgery be expunged if it happen over 20years ago. I recieved probation. Completed satisfactory

    Productive citizen every since. I was twenty four and made stupid mistake

    Zaid’s Answer

    It depended on wether or not you received a probation that would allow expungement. If not you can not expunge a felony, but all is not lost. You can apply for executive clemency from the governors office. If you can demonstrate that you have made changes in your life since the felony conviction you may be able to receive clemency form the governors office.
