Hi Is stealing 160 Tylenol with codine a felony.? They were stolen from the pharmacy while working at Walgreens . NY STATE
If the value exceeds $1000 stealing it is a felony. Otherwise, it is a misdemeanor. Codeine is an opiate and a controlled substance. Unlawful possession, whether you steal it or not, of 1/2 an ounce or more of a narcotic is also a felony.See question
Im on 3 years mistometer probation and i am accused of filing false documents in new york dose anyone know what the new charge may be and how will it effect my probation i have done a year already no trouble
Any conviction is grounds for a violation of probation. Hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to represent you. Your attorney should be able to speak with the judge who placed you on probation and/or your probation officer to assess the impact of any plea of guilty on the new charge to your status on probation.See question

These cases are complicated and take time to resolve. Right now you have three different lawyers negotiating with three DA offices, complicated by the logistics of having him physically brought to court.

Would a judge likely prevent a prosecutor or defense attorney from asking a witness other than the defendant about prior convictions? Why would the judge prevent the use of such convictions? Should attorneys also be allowed to ask witnesses about ...
Questioning a witness about a prior conviction is generally fair game as relevant to the witness' credibilty. The judge could limit the questioning depending on the nature of the conviction or the subject matter of the testimony. Questioning about an arrest that did not result in a conviction will probably not be permitted, and if permitted, limited in scope.See question

She was charge with a felony D
If she was sentenced to 8 months, she will get out after 5 months 20 days (approximately). If she was sentenced to one year, she will serve 8 months. There is a provision that exists under PL (penal law) 70.40 which allows an inmate to apply for local conditional (early) release but I have never actually seen it applied. If you Google it, you can find the application on line.See question

Judicial Diversion is a wonderful opportunity for a defendant with a substance abuse issue, but it most commonly requires a plea of guilty to a felony and has serious consequences for failure to comply with the terms of the plea. He needs to review all his options with his lawyer.See question

Only your lawyer can answer this. You clearly face a challenge in avoiding jail but it sounds like there may be significant mitigating circumstances. You need a good lawyer. Good luck.See question
