    this is his first ever offense, family violence. he was mtr because he missed a class more than 3 times but he was going to this class he never came up dirty on ua and actively participated in hir probation classes and requirements.

    Ernest’s Answer

    More information is needed to accurately answer your question. If he is waiting on a bed because he has been ordered to attend a lock up probation facility he might have to wait. There is a chance that the judge might be convinced to allow an alternative sanction if the facts are as you say. Your best bet would be to hire a lawyer and have him look into the case.

  • Can a 16 yr old guy have sex with a 18yr old girl

    Like a 16 yr old have sex with 18 yr old is It ilegal

    Ernest’s Answer

    Can a 16 year old guy have sex with an 18 year old girl? Yes, it has happened many times throughout history. The second sentence seems to ask if it is legal. In Texas it would be legal for an 18 and 16 year old to have consensual sex. The question you should be asking is "Should I?" Sex poses many risks. You would probably be better off focusing on your education right now based on the form of your question.

    The statute of limitations for welfare fraud is 3 years. If the cases were dismissed and they happened 4 years ago you should be able to get them expunged. Contact a qualified San Antonio lawyer to discuss the specifics. We offer a free consultation if you are interested.

  • Can my deferred adjudication be completely expunged?

    can my Deferred Adjudication from 10 years ago be expunged? (it was a class c misdeamor that was dismissed)

    Ernest’s Answer

    If your plea was for a class C misdemeanor and if the case was dismissed after successfully completing deferred adjudication you may have the charge expunged. This would erase the record of your arrest and you would be able to legally deny the event ever occurred. Call me if you need any assistance in this matter.

    Ernest’s Answer

    You may not have it expunged because you did get deferred adjudication. You may be eligible for a non-disclosure 5 years from the date of discharge of your probation if you qualify otherwise. Always make sure to talk to a qualified lawyer regarding these issues.

    Ernest’s Answer

    For the State to win they have to prove your son knowingly had possession of the drugs. It sounds like he has defenses that might allow him to win the case. You do not get to pick your court appointed attorney, but you can hire any lawyer you like. I would suggest you speak to a qualified lawyer familiar with the court and the prosecutors.

    Ernest’s Answer

    The state appears to be charging you as a party to the theft. They can do this legally, but they must have evidence that you knowingly participated actively in the theft. There are many ways in which this could be resolved favorably. You should hire someone who is familiar with your court, prosecutors, and defenses to this case.

  • Will a dismissed case show up on a background check?

    I was arrested for possesion of marijuana and the case was dismissed.Will this prevent me from getting a job?Will it show up?

    Ernest’s Answer

    The arrest is a public record. If a person searches for it they can find it. If they find it, it will show that you were arrested and the case was dismissed. If the case was dismissed you can have it expunged once the statute of limitations passes. For a misdemeanor the limitation is two years. If you get the case expunged all the documents regarding the case should be destroyed and you can legally deny the case occurred. Talk to a good lawyer for more advice.

    Ernest’s Answer

    There is not enough information in your question to answer fully, but in Texas to be guilty of theft you have to knowingly steal the books from a person or store to be be guilty of theft. It is also a crime to knowingly buy or sell stolen merchandise. If your friend found the books and did not know they were stolen there is a defense to a theft charge. Your friend should speak to a qualified attorney before he answers any questions from a police officer.
