    I tried to get it sealed but I was unable because of the driving with suspended license was on my background is there another way I can get this of my background it's really hard to get a job with this on there please help

    Yekaterina’s Answer

    You were likely denied because you were adjudicated guilty on the Driving on License Suspended or Revoked. You need to contact an attorney to see if you can find a way to have adjudication withheld on the DWLSR charge, than you should be eligible to seal the petit theft.

    Yekaterina’s Answer

    I agree with the above answers. Unfortunately writing a letter will likely not do the trick. If you have an attorney, it will be easier. However, if you do send a letter, you may want to consider sending in some character letters, along with copies of completion of all conditions.

  • How much time do you get for burglary of an unoccupied residence? He also has burglary misdemeanor charge.

    His public defender said they offered him 30 months. That seems to be extreme.

    Yekaterina’s Answer

    Your question does not provide enough information. You stated that it was unoccupied dwelling, did you mean structure? If you meant unoccupied structure, the maximum would be up to five years in prison and up to $5000 fine. However if it was a dwelling, it would be a second degree felony, up to 15 years.

    The answer will also depend on the person's criminal history and and other factors.

    You need to speak with an attorney.

  • Felony probation

    my boyfriend is in jail for vop but it is a technical violation, this is his first violation , and he is almost done with probation . will they give him house arrest or time served or make him continue probation ? and how fast will he get out ?

    Yekaterina’s Answer

    I agree with the answers below. Every situation is different, but it always helps to be able to go in front of a judge and say that despite the violation, client has paid all of the costs and fines and completed almost all of his conditions. As pointed out before it all depends on the charge, prior criminal history, and the nature of the violation. I would suggest you call a local attorney and find representation quickly.

  • I have a local capias or warrant in Duval county that is over 5 years old. How can I have this removed without jail time

    Dates back to 2007

    Yekaterina’s Answer

    It depends on what the warrant is for. If it is a misdemeanor charge,most likely, when you hire an attorney, they can call it up for hearing without you being arrested. The other option, of course, is to turn yourself in on the warrant, and wait for a court date. It is unclear when the court date would be. It is a much better option for you to consult with a local attorney and figure out how to best approach the situation. Otherwise, you may be stopped one day for traffic ticket and will go to jail.

  • Collecting a judgment

    I won a small claim and is starting the collection, but the judgment prepared by my attorney does not have the defendant's address. I have been trying to contact my attorney but it took him 6 months to response that I have to pay him a fee for the...

    Yekaterina’s Answer

    The defendant's address needs to be in the judgment. You may want to consider getting an amended judgment. You also need to make sure to record a certified copy of the judgment in the county where you think the defendant has real estate. Additionally, to properly perfect the judgment you need to file a judgment lien certificate with the secretary of state. This will place a lien on the personal property of the debtor.

    I agree with the answers below. It sounds like you need your presentation as quickly as possible. If your charges are dropped then the case can be expunged, assuming you otherwise qualifying don't have any other criminal history.

    Yekaterina’s Answer

    I agree with the answers below. You need to seriously consider hiring an attorney for your brother. An attorney may be able to schedule the VOP for a hearing without your brother turning himself in on the warrant.
