Please read this before answering. I graduated Juvinile drug court in Nov. and it was said that if I stay out of trouble for a year and a half I could get my charges completely wiped after all the fines were paid. I now have a Domestic misdemeanor charges against me. My girl has PTSD and it was just a bad night for her. She didn't press charges but the state is. The charges are hopefully in the process of getting dropped, will I still get in trouble with drug court? Will all my charges from before be pushed on me again even if the charges are dropped? Sounds like a faulting system but I'd like to know before hand.
Family Law Attorney
I agree with attorney Kriegel, at least call your present attorney or public defender.
Please only call me if your case is in California as I am only licensed here and laws of other states may vary. I approach trials and issues from a legal and common sense approach, This is how the majority of judges I have appeared before in 40 years also make decisions. I do not intend by my advice to enter an attorney client relationship and in most cases advise to obtain legal representation. Sometimes if you can not afford it a consultation or limited scope representation is available. As an experienced attorney I can tell you, judges can be impatient, hate emotional arguments and over exagerations or lies. A brief outline of the problems and desired solutions is always best and I often in limited scope representations advise clients on how to proceed at time of hearing or trial and my fees are considerably less when I do not appear in court as it takes much less of my time.
