    Nicholas’s Answer

    It is possible to get an infraction, but it also may be possible to get a diversion program or beat the charges outright. You won't know your best option until you've had an opportunity to discuss your case in detail with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Consult with some local attorneys.

  • Can u expunge 2felonys that came with a strike 10yrs ago for assault on a police officer hapend in l.a county

    Thats the only thing hes ever done finish parole with no violations

    Nicholas’s Answer

    There is most likely some relief available to clean up his record. What depends on what the sentence was. If he was sentenced to probation, including up to a year in county jail, he should be able to get a 1203.4 dismissal, CA's version of "expungement"

    If he was sentenced to a prison term, then the appropriate relief is called a certificate of rehabilitation, which will also serve as an application for a governor's pardon.

    Consult with a local attorney who can handle this matter for you and help you clean up your record.

  • Can I be arrested for possession(not use) of a fake drivers license? What about possession of someone else's credit card?

    Nicholas’s Answer

    Yes. Both can lead to your arrest. Do not make any statements to law enforcement, and you might want to consider hiring an attorney.

  • Should I take a traffic school for campus parking citation after I paid the fine?

    CAL POLY POMONA

    Nicholas’s Answer

    Parking violations don't carry a point. So the reason for traffic school doesn't really apply here.

  • I'm currently on formal probation. Do I need to report a traffic ticket (infraction) I got for failing to obey a posted sign?

    I checked my minute order and it doesn't say anything about reporting traffic violations. In addition, I am currently in the process of transferring my probation to LA County, so I do not know who my new probation officer is yet.

    Nicholas’s Answer

    You will be ok. Once it's transferred, if you do meet with your new probation officer, feel free to bring it up, as it will not trigger a violation.

    Nicholas’s Answer

    Consult with some local LA attorneys. Not only will it save you a trip or two to LA, but hiring an attorney will give you the best chance at avoiding a conviction that will cost you your license. Many of the LAPD officers who come into the Metro courthouse on tickets like this one have bigger fish to fry and are often willing to amend the ticket to a different infraction that will not lead to a license suspension or alcohol-related record.

  • "Medical rule out" in DRE eval does that mean they can't charge me with DUI drugs?

    My DRE findings say that they believe I am under the influence of cannabis but that its a Medical Rule out because of my uneven pupil size. My blood test was a 42 ng THC level ? ?

    Nicholas’s Answer

    If the officer who stops you smells marijuana and a DRE shows up at all, you will likely be charged with DUI. As to whether you'll be convicted, well that's a much more difficult question. There's not any particular level at which an expert can testify that you're impaired, so I suggest getting the best lawyer you can afford and fighting the case. You may be able to negotiate the charge down or beat the case at trial. If convicted, you would lose your license for 6 months and pay fines of almost $2000. Not to mention three years of probation, an alcohol education class and more.

  • What violations/ accidents will show up on my driving record?

    I recently had a really bad week in which I was involved in two at fault accidents and received a speeding ticket. I have been driving for 2 years and am 18. I previously had a spotless record. My question is will my accidents show up on my record...

    Nicholas’s Answer

    Unfortunately, you must report the accidents to the DMV. Your insurance company will likely send you the form that you must submit. The speeding ticket does carry the possibility of adding one point to your record, but since you've got a clean driving record so far, you would seem to be eligible to attend traffic school and keep the point off of your license.

  • Will a Misdemeanor that is set aside show on a background check?

    I had my misdemeanor, that happened 7 years ago, set aside in the state of AZ and I have been told that I can honestly say "no" on applications when asked if I have been convicted yet I understand for licensing board's I have to disclose this info...

    Nicholas’s Answer

    In CA, "set aside" has a specific meaning within the context of DMV license suspensions after a DUI arrest. It does not have a particular meaning within the context of misdemeanor charges in CA courts. Since your question really revolves around what happens under Arizona law, I would recommend reposting your question as if you are asking from Arizona. Arizona attorneys (particularly the one who represented you) will be best equipped to answer your question.

    Nicholas’s Answer

    Avoiding the DV conviction by challenging the relationship is certainly one angle, but may not be your best defense. Consult with some local attorneys, discussing your case in detail.
