    In theory, your juvenile records are confidential and can only be disseminated in limited circumstances. Normally employers don't have access to those records, but if you are applying for law enforcement positions, a juvenile adjudication of theft may be discovered. Although record sealing is not automatic, it is certainly something that can be done after your juvenile probation has expired.

    i agree with the above attorneys regarding communicating with your attorney and having trust in your attorney before going to trial. I do want to point out that having a "stand-in" for a criminal court appearance is not uncommon, especially when the court appearance itself does not involve substantive legal issues. Although, it is good practice for an attorney to inform his/her client ahead of time when a "stand-in" makes an appearance and the reasons for that "stand-in" to make the...

    In addition to the answers provided by the above attorneys, you should know that if the witness in question is the victim, and the victim appears but refuses to testify, then the court may hold the victim in contempt. However, unlike any other type of witness who refuses to testify, a domestic violence victim who refuses to testify cannot be incarcerated.

  4. PC 243 (E) (1) Military husband wrongfully charged by the DA

    Answered about 5 years ago.

    The answer depends on a variety of factors, including the county, your husband's prior record (if any), possible witness statements that could be provided in his favor, his service record, etc. I'm fairly sure that the DA will not offer such a charge of his/her own volition, although they may be persuaded to give an alternative charge if the right attorney can convince them. I highly recommend using an attorney (be it public defender or private counsel) to persuade the DA. There's no...

    As Mr. Williamson mentioned, your license will be suspended effective the date of your conviction. However, you are immediately eligible for a restricted license as long as you enroll in a DUI program, obtain an SR-22 and pay a license re-issue fee to the DMV.

    Your situation depends on certain circumstances. First question -- were they misdemeanors or infractions. Infractions can't be expunged. Second question -- was probation granted. If so, have you completed all the terms of probation. You must successfully complete the terms of probation before applying for an expungement. Alternatively, if probation wasn't granted, you must wait at least one year and have led a morally upstanding life since the conviction date. Either scenario presumes...

  7. My bac level was .23? help

    You will most likely be charged with an enhancement to the DUI -- driving with a BAC of .20% or more. If convicted of this enhancement, you will be required to take the 9-month first offender DUI program, as opposed to the 3-month program normally required of first time offenders. The Hit & Run and the accident may add Cal Trans or jail time to your sentence, so it's important to hire an experienced defense attorney to either fight or negotiate on your behalf.

    I agree with the answers provided by the above attorneys. Although it is in your best interest to retain an attorney, especially if you want the best chance to keep this incident off your record, there are things you can do in order to assist your attorney. First, I would ascertain whether any of the witnesses there are willing to cooperate with your attorney. If the police only took statements from some of the witnesses, then you want to compile contact information for all the witnesses to...

  9. What is California pc 12031 (c)(1) and pc 12316(b)

    Answered about 5 years ago.

    1. Niranjan Fred Thiagarajah
    1 lawyer answer

    PC 12031 is possession of a loaded firearm. Subdivision (c) is an exception to the prohibition on carrying loaded firearms that applies to certain people. Your co-worker was most likely charged with 12031(a) as opposed to 12031(c). PC 12316(b) prohibits certain types of people who aren't allowed to own/possess firearms from owing/possessing/controlling ammunition.

  10. What are the arguments to use when contesting a speeding ticket?

    Having done hundreds of traffic court cases (on the prosecution and defense side), I know that it's very difficult to beat a traffic ticket. If you're charged with speeding, you'll want to know whether the officer measured your speed via radar (or lidar) or via pace. If the officer paced your vehicle, then you may want to determine how long he paced for vehicle (time / distance) and when his speedometer was last calibrated, and then argue that he didn't have the time to pace you properly and/...
