    Keep in mind that while jail is not likely (as long as this is your only arrest), a fine is likely and so is restitution. Restitution means you will have to pay back Target for the value of the items they say you stole.

    If your probation is terminated, and your convictions are what you listed, you should be eligible to have both "expunged." In other words you file a petition with the court that convicted you, that asks the court to dismiss the case because you successfully finished probation. This depends upon your history, whether you've been arrested or convicted for other charges. It also depends on whether you finished probation without any issues -- arrests, late payments, no payments, etc. I'm talking...

    Are you asking about the statute of limitations? B&P 25658(a) is a misdemeanor, and most misdemeanors have a one year statute of limitations for filing charges.

    The only thing I can tell you is, I've seen cases filed for under $75 at a Target. And that was for a 1st timer, not someone with priors. I think it's safe to say you could see charges here, along with PVs if you're still on probation ot parole. You should contact an attorney or stay up on whatever address your possible IDs could link to. That include fingerprints and other cards. Not saying it's guaranteed they'll find anything but you need to think ahead here.

  5. Expungement CA

    If you were placed on probation and finished it, you should check the 1203.4 box, Question 3. Also check one of the three boxes below it (probably the first one, but read the form carefully and decide.) Because you were convicted of a felony, also remember to check the box in Question 2 because you need to have the court reduce the felony to a misdemeanor first. Good luck!

  6. Can I be present for the supervised visits between my husband and my kids?

    This is impossible to answer for sure without seeing your restraining order paperwork. However, usually the "brief and peacuful contact" condition includes just that only: brief contact. Normally the point of professional supervision for visits is that the other party to the restraining order is not present. Only the parent having the visit, and the professional supervisor are present. The point is to protect the protected party on the restraining order. I'm curious that you say you have...

    I am a CA lawyer and I know very little of MN state law. However to directly answer your question, you need to consult with a criminal writs and appeals specialist. Many criminal defense attorneys specialize in trial work. Ask about their writ experience and their appellate experience. You need an appellate specialist to raise any challenge to the trial court's sentence (and after a guilty plea, your outlook is not good). You may need to seek out a writ, or habeas corpus specialist to...

    I have had clients make deals in the past that sound similar to your situation. (Although I can't say for sure because I don't have your facts.) If you have completed your probation term successfully and are not currently on probation or facing new charges, you may be eligible to file a petition with the court to reduce your felony to a misdemeanor, and then expunge the conviction under 1203.4. You should call a criminal defense attorney who is experienced with these kinds of cases. You can...

    Your question is a little bit confusing to me. You said you blew your 21 day deadline. Does that mean you did not appear in court on the day your citation said you needed to appear? If that's the case, then a bench warrant may have been placed. You may have lost a chance at having the bench officer (the judge) offer you a reduced fine. However, it is absolutely in your best interest right now, to go to the courthouse and appear in front of a judge. The longer you wait, the more the ticket...

  10. I received an open container ticket (25620 b&p) in Hollywood, Ca. The officer circled it as a misdemeanor. Is that correct?

    As an attorney who takes Hollywood B&P cases I agree completely with Mr. Haggerty. Often these cases end up in an "office hearing" or not filed at all. If you really want to help your chances of getting a dismissal you should contact a criminal defense attorney and consider doing some AA classes (get proof you attended) before the date on your citation.
