    You are responsible for registration, plates and whatever you signed in the written contract. Not reading your obligations is foolhardy.

  • How to answer a question about previous arrests if the record was sealed?

    My son was arrested for a misdemeanor when he was 15. Went through a diversion program, never was charged or convicted. The record was sealed. Does he have to disclose his previous arrests if he is questioned by police?

    Stephen’s Answer

    There is no reason ever to reveal a sealed juvenile detention it is as if it never happened.

  • How much jail time would i be likley to do for a term of 6 months in jail

    i am wanting to serve out the rest of my felony probation in jail

    Stephen’s Answer

    The judge does not have to give you 50% good time. Also have your lawyer check the original judgment and sentence. If the time was suspended, you only owe 6 months. If it was deferred or a conditional discharge, the judge can impose the entire sentence for the probation violation with no credit for time served on probation. I can't imagine why jail is better than probation!

  • How do I get credit for my in house parole good time that was not taken off my parole after I got out of prison in n.m.

    I was supposed to get out on August 23 2013 dint get out until December 10 13. Good time sheets from facility shows when I started in house parole but parole papers didn't show any credit for my inhouse time or good time of 50%

    Stephen’s Answer

    I'm not sure you get good time credits for 4 months of paroling in. You may end up on parole a little longer than you expected, in which case those 4 months were dead time. no harm in asking your parole officer.

  • In Federal Court if the Prosecution moves for dismissal can a judge deny it?

    Charged on superseding inditment. Did plea bargin was denied. Prosecuter moved to dismiss charges. can Judge deny motion to dismiss

    Stephen’s Answer

    In some federal plea agreements the prosecutor agrees to dismiss some charges if the defendant pleads guilty to others. However if the judge refuses to accept the plea agreement, then everyone is back to square one. All the charges are there and you are presumed innocent with all the trial rights. The first questions to ask the lawyer is why the judge threw out the plea and is there anyway around the judge's objection?

    Stephen’s Answer

    No court date will be set until you are arrested or your lawyer schedules an arraignment. It's best to hire someone soon. Any traffic stop will result in your arrest and extradition to Albuquerque.
