  • I was acused of something 8 years ago when I was 14. some kind of sexual act like fondling a yonger kid.

    I went to a detective who asked me these questions and ditermined that there was no evidence and no witnesses so it was dropped. can the family who said this accuse me again for the same exact thing 8 years ago?

    Kristen’s Answer

    I am a little confused about when you spoke to a detective but it sounds like you spoke with him when you were 14 years old correct? In fact, there is no statute of limitations for sex offenses. Even though the offense was allegedly committed when you were 14 years old, the prosecutor still has the ability to file charges against you in adult court. Will that realistically happen? Probably not but you need to make sure to protect yourself. If the family tries to re-initiate an investigation and an officer tries to question you again about his situation, you need to immediately tell him that you will not answer any questions without an attorney. Do not engage in any conversation with the family or supposed "victim." Often, police will try to have the victim call you and they will record the conversation. They try to get you to admit something. Do not engage in any converations about this. Good luck.

    It appears that you did not complete TASC, the diversion program that would have resulted in a dismissal of the case if the program had been completed. Since the program was not completed, the case is reset back in court and you must deal with it in another fashion. You need to appear for the court date and the prosecutor will offer you a plea bargain for the case. Typically in Maricopa County, a misdemeanor disposition is offered for a first time marijuana offense where someone did not complete TASC.

  • Suspended license but paid my ticket?

    I was given a ticket for "speeding" in 2009 (but wasn't) and had a fender bender.. My insurance was a joke and of course i didnt have the receipt to prove I just paid for insurance.. So now im not to sure as to what i should do.. My licence is sti...

    Kristen’s Answer

    You need to go to the court where the ticket was filed and find out what violations you were charged with and how much you owe. If you don't know which court, then MVD has that information from your record. They will not release the suspension without information from the court that you have paid the fines in full. Were you also given a ticket for no insurance? If so, you may want to try to get that violation set aside by the court by showing them proof that you were insured at that time. Good Luck.

    Kristen’s Answer

    You need to contact an Arizona attorney immediately! An attorney here can arrange to get your case reset and have you voluntarily appear rather than be taken into custody and extradited. The court will also probably allow you to reside in Minnesota while the case is pending and your lack of any problems in the last 7 years will certainly work in your favor. Writing a letter to the governor will do you no good. You need to deal with this now through a lawyer because it's not going away. Feel free to call me to discuss this matter further.

    I was recently pulled over and given a ticket for excessive speeding(28-701.02A3). If I plead guilty I will have a class 3 misdemeanor on my record. Will that affect my I-130? Also the I-130 wasn't filed under my name. It was filed for my mother b...

    Kristen’s Answer

    I agree with Mr. Orent that consulting an immigration attorney is important. But also do NOT plead guilty at your arraignment. Enter a Not Guilty plea with the court then your case will be set for a pretrial conference. In many jurisdictions, the prosecutor will plead the charge down to a civil speeding ticket or sometimes allow defensive driving school. Good luck.

    Kristen’s Answer

    You have no liability for the actions of your father-in-law's sister or your husband's ex-girlfriend. Your husband was correct in not signing a letter or affidavit that he knew was false. If your husband's ex-girlfriend signs a letter that she knows is false, she may be in trouble for that in the future. If your father-in-laws sister is submitting letters/affidavits that she knows are false then she could also be an accomplice to perjury.

  • What should I expect?? will I do jail time??

    I was arrested in June 2011, after MCSO raided my home, and the charges were scratched..Now I see on the Superior court website, that they are charging me with 1 count 13-3405 (F6), 1 count 13-3408 (F4), 1 count 13-3415 (F6) and 2 counts 13-3407 (...

    Kristen’s Answer

    Usually, a person gets arrested on the warrant when they are contacted by the police for some other reason. For example, if a person is pulled over for a traffic violation, the police will then run the person's name, see there is a warrant and then arrest the person. You will then be required to post a bond in order to get out of jail while the case is pending. It will always catch up with you. As for whether you would get jail time upon conviction, you may. But there are so many variables and too much information to relay in this answer. You should contact an attorney to discuss all of the factors.

    Kristen’s Answer

    Arizona does not expunge convictions. As far as getting a conviction vacated and set aside, there are some types of convictions that cannot be set aside. Reducing to a misdemeanor is also only allowed for certain levels of convictions. I suggest that you contact an attorney so they can speak with you in depth about these issues.

    Kristen’s Answer

    Any other felony conviction can be used to enhance a sentence in Arizona. It does not have to be the same type of offense. The age of the conviction will affect what sentencing range a person is facing but they are always allegable in some way. There are many factors that come into play. I suggest that you contact an attorney and discuss all of the details so you get an accurate advisement of the range of sentence.
