Im waiting on my bank statements from my bank to present because i know ive paid
A show cause requires you to appear before the judge on the restitution matter. If you can demonstrate that you paid the restitution then the matter should be resolved. If, however, you discover that the restitution obligations were not timely met then have it paid prior to court on the show cause. I recommend that you discuss the details of the situation with an attorney before you appear in court.See question

As a certified pharmacy technician you should be concerned with what your obligations are in referenced to observing and knowing about an impaired practitioner. If you are aware of or concerned a pharmacist is presently impaired then you are likely under a reporting obligation to the Health Practitioners Monitoring Program.See question

There are both federal and state laws restricting the ownership or possession of firearms. Virginia has strict laws governing the possession of firearms depending on your criminal history. A conviction for domestic violence is one of the listed crimes restricting ownership of a firearm. The concern is now an application for a firearm was submitted without all the accurate information. I recommend that you discuss the matter with a criminal defense attorney. I offer a free telephone consultation and my office is located in Norfolk.See question
I was never arrested, the case went to trail and we were on probation for 60 days and then the charge was dropped.
The date, the charge and the dismissal will all likely show on your background check. As there is a chance that the final disposition may not be updated to show the dismissal, you should obtain a certified copy from the Clerk that the charge was dismissed. Depending on the specifics on how your case proceeded you may be able to have the incident removed from your record. Contact an attorney to discuss this option.See question

The judge will consider the criminal history and aggravating and mitigating circumstances. If on bond or in jail pending the case resolution there may be some actions he can take to help put him in a better position for sentencing. If he cannot afford to hire an attorney one will be appointed to represent him. Preparation is important but in the end the judge decides the sentence on a violation of probation.See question

The bond paperwork will state if there is a restriction on travel outside of Virginia while the case is pending. If there is a travel restriction then a judge's permission is required to travel. If the Commonwealth's office is prosecuting the case, the Commonwealth will either need to agree to the bond modification or a hearing held on the matter.See question

Yes, you should contact your attorney and discuss your options for an appeal. There is a limited time to note your appeal to Circuit Court so do not delay. If you change your mind before the case is heard, you can usually withdraw your matter from consideration.See question
I was summoned to court for identity theft. Ended in nolle prosequi and the record was expunged. Will it show up on fbi background check?
My experience is that it depends on who is running the criminal background check. Law enforcement agencies and security clearance with the federal government will still locate an expunged record. Many licensing boards require full disclosure (nursing, law, medical). For the most part an expunged record should not be located on a standard background check.See question
My boyfriend may have violate probation for the first time. And we was wondering what could happen. Would he have to do jail time with it being first time. And would he have to do all of he's suspended time?
There are a lot of factors for the court to consider for the violation of probation; such as the nature of the violation - was it a technical violation, testing positive for drugs, absconding from supervision, being arrested for a new law offense. Depending on the amount of time suspended and the basis for the violation certain programs may be a possibility in lieu of incarceration. It is important to speak with counsel about the details and work together for a positive outcome.See question
