Probably not. Expungement is limited to cases that are dismissed or where you win at trial. And then you will probably have to file a motion for a finding of factual innocence, which the DA can oppose. If you plea but the charges are dismissed, that is the best you can hope for. In Sacramento, you can go online at www.saccourt.ca.gov and click on search case index to check and see if your case comes up.
In many instances, one of the conditions of formal probation is that you have to have a job or be in school. In order to verify your employment status, your probation officer may call your employer. I would explain your concerns to your probation officer and see if he will accept some sort of proof, such as a pay stub, rather than calling your employer. I doubt your probation officer wants you to get fired and have no way to support your family or pay any fines or costs the court may have...
You dad needs to talk to a criminal defense attorney pronto. Unless your dad knew they were stolen or should have known, the cops are probably blowing smoke. If they want the guns, tell them to go talk to auntie. Better yet, tell Dad not talk to the cops period. And if he is arrested, tell him to remain silent and demand an attorney. The cops will try to dissuade him from invoking his right to an attorney, but he must be adamant and shut up.
Hard to say if it's a good deal because we know nothing about the facts, Most criminal cases are very fact driven and whether an offer is a good offer depends greatly on what facts and evidence the DA has. Taking a strike is always risky, but if your husband stays out of trouble and takes care of his drug problem, he should be okay. Mot judges will stand by whatever plea bargain has been worked out between the DA and defense attorney unless something egregious pops up.
A minor cannot have consensual sex and a parent cannot consent for the minor. If you are the person you are talking about, you must put a stop to this conduct IMMEDIATELY or you will (1) most likely go to state prison for several years and (2) have to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life, no matter which state you live in. If you or whomever you are talking about continues this illegal conduct and the relationship goes sour, as they always seem to do, you or someone will...
Talk to several criminal defense attorneys in your area because they would be familiar with the DA's office and local judiciary. Most attorneys offer free or low consts consultations and you can get some valuable information about your case. Don't post any additional information on this public website and the best of luck to you.
A 288(a), lewd and lascivious conduct with a child, cannot be reduced to a misdemeanor and therefore cannot be expunged.. On the other hand, a 288a(b)(1) can be a felony or misdemeanor, while a 288a(b)(2), 288a(c)(1), (2)(A) (2)(B) and (2)(C) are straight felonies and cannot be reduced to misdemeanors.
No. You can certainly go to the supervisor, but I suspect that would be useless since the supervisor would not want to undercut his or her deputy. Without knowing any of the facts, it's impossible to know if 80 days is a good or bad deal. I agree that having earned a college degree, being gainfully employed, having no criminal record and no arrests are positive factors for negotiating purposes. However, a sales allegation is a very serious charge, as opposed to simply possession and...
Do not talk to the police anymore. If they want to arrest you, they will. Then stay quiet and demand an attorney. They are trying to get information to make an arrest. If it was such a strong case, you would have already been arrested. It is not harrassment if the cops are trying to investigate a case. That's what they do - question people in trying to figure out what happened.
If your girlfriend keeps quiet and so do you, the cops probably won't even take a report and even if they did, the DA probably won't prosecute . Better be careful until she turns 18. Sounds like her parents are a bit on the protective side which I suppose is understandable. But once she turns 18, they're no longer a problem unless this becomes a long term relationship.
