    It appears you have a misdemeanor conviction along with a felony deferred, the conviction prevents you from being able to seal this case.

  • I am on probation for a DUI and of course i can't drive... i just got pulled over? can i go to jail???

    i am on probation for a DUI, and i just got pulled over and the officer gave me court.. can i go to jail for that i am not legal in this country and am afraid to get deported. can someone answer my question please??? did i violated probation??

    Christopher’s Answer

    Yes you can go to jail on either the new case or on a probation revocation for the first case. One of the standard terms and conditions of probation is no new law violations. You need to consult with a criminal defense attorney for both of these issues.

  • Charged with fraud and record was not expunged!

    Record was not expunged and cannot get a job with the criminal back ground checks.

    Christopher’s Answer

    We need much more information to help you. We know you were charged, but we do not know the outcome of the case. We also need to know what jurisdiction your charge was in and when.

  • Its my son's first offense, clean record and is being charged for violation of colo rev statue 18-4-204, what could happen?

    The charges are 2nd degree burglary, class 4 felony

    Christopher’s Answer

    A class four felony carries a presumptive range sentence of 2 to 6 years in prison and or a fine of $2,000 to $500,000. A sentence to prison is not mandatory and probation is also available to the judge if a conviction enters. In addition to possible jail time and fines a felony conviction has many collateral consequences: anything from difficulty with finding a job to be unable to obtain life insurance. I tell you this to let you know this is a very serious case that should not be handled without proper representation. I would suggest talking with a couple of defense attorneys and finding someone you and your son have confidence in and retaining them to walk you through this difficult process.

  • What consequences am I looking to face?

    I was arrested for failure to obey order last night. I was also charged with public place under 21 and drug paraphernalia. I am wondering if I should hire a lawyer and what punishments am I looking at? Will I face possible jail time (again)?

    Christopher’s Answer

    I agree you need an attorney to help you through this case. Most of us offer a free consultation so you have nothing to lose by talking to a few attorneys and deciding if in fact you need to hire one.

  • If i have a colorado license and got my license suspended in CA, can i drive my car in CO?

    I was back home in california for a little when i got an minor in possession of alcohol infraction. At court I got my license suspended for one year. Also i am a resident of colorado and have a colorado drivers license. Because colorado does not s...

    Christopher’s Answer

    You are allowed to drive in Colorado as long as your Colorado license is valid. Make sure Colorado DMV has your correct address because they will send notice to the address that they have on file for you if they are going to suspend your license, not getting the notice is not a defense to driving with a suspended license.

  • Possible punishment for bringing alcohol into a major league stadium while on probation

    About 6 months ago I received a charge for "illegal consumption of alcohol underage" (Basically an MIP) They gave me 1 year of probation and a fine. Since then I've turned 21 and yesterday I got caught with a flask in a baseball stadium. This is a...

    Christopher’s Answer

    You should consult with an attorney. The new charge may cause a revocation of your probation to be filed. Usually the court and prosecutor will look at any past criminal history in deciding what type of plea bargain to offer and what kind of sentence to impose. For a class one petty offense you could be fined up to $500 and or sentenced to up to 6 months in jail.

    Not long ago i recieved a ticket + court date which is coming up soon. The sercurity people at the store said that they will show the video tape at court. Is this true? Will they show the entire video? And will there be a jury? I am under 18 a...

    Christopher’s Answer

    if your case proceeds to trial they will show the video tape, You may be eligible for a jury trial but you probably need to make a written demand and may need to pay a jury fee depending on what court your case is in. You should consult with an attorney.

    Christopher’s Answer

    My Colleague is correct unfortunately the way the law stands if you were an adult and were convicted of the felony offense you can't seal or expunge the records. If you received a deferred judgement and successfully completed it or you were charged as a juvenile you may be able to seal/expunge your records.

    Christopher’s Answer

    You need to get an attorney on board immediately. If an investigation is pending someone is going to want to speak with you and you do not want to do this without the assistance of an attorney.
