    State driving records can be accessed on the FBI's NCIC computer system. Checking out of state driving records is very easy for law enforcement in any state. Hopefully you may get lucky. Its been 11 years.

    You will generally be entitled to any time you spend in jail during which you are being held as a result of the allegation in question. Whether that time is enough to cover what the judge sentences you to is another question. Get a reputable local lawyer who will answer all of these things for you, and advocate for you to make sure any tie you get is as little as it can be. Maybe you can be defended and not have any time to do. Good luck.

    A FL lawyer would need to answer the specifics, but your complaints are probably limited in part by how much time has passed. There are legal deadlines for appeal after you've been sentenced by a court. If your defense is your ability to prove actual innocence, then your basis for appeal would be different, and there are no time limits. The Constitution protects you there. You should have never entered a plea of no contest if you were innocent. Your lawyer should not have allowed...

    You were placed on deferred for a felony under PC 21.12. That means you pled guilty or no contest. You cannot have it expunged. It will always be on your record in some way. If you will be required to register as a sex offender, you will never be eligible to apply for an order of non-disclosure. If you are not required to register, then you may be eligible to apply for non-disclosure after 5 years have passed since the completion of your deferred. This would only establish your...

    Texas law does not limit your ability to document evidence. As far as the camera question, any person may document evidence by photos or video or audio recordings. There is no need to notify the person being recorded as long as a person who is part of the conversation knows of the recording. If the daughter for example sees dad stoned and passed out on the couch, these is nothing illegal about her taking photos or video. Now authenticating the photos or video as admissible evidence in...

    You are charged with Class C misdemeanor Theft. You will have to go to court in either Municipal court or in a Justice of the Peace court. If convicted, you can be fined up to $500. You do not have to worry about jail time, but your criminal record will be permanent. Get representation. It will probably not be terribly expensive. A lawyer who does traffic tickets can probably help you. If the case cannot be defended, the lawyer may be able to get you deferred adjudication. In a...

    Upon conviction for any felony a person is disqualified for life from buying firearms under federal law. Its pretty strict.

    You don't need a criminal defense lawyer. Your boss however, may. You seem to be in an extremely hostile work environment in terms of sexual harassment. I am sorry you are having to experience this. You do have legal remedies. Most of your remedies are through civil lawsuits. You could make a police report, but what he is doing is probably not so much "criminal" as just "unlawful." If you are seriously interested in getting relief from him in civil court, you do need to prove what he...

    If a lawyer has taken fees from you, do not be intimidated to speak with him/her and ask for accountability for what they are doing for you or have done for the money they have taken from you. Many cases do get started slowly and you don't alway see what is happening behind the scene outside of court. Your lawyer may be working to earn the fee. You also may have been ripped off. Make an appointment to speak with the lawyer and ask questions about what is happening. If you feel...
