  • Will a pending felony charge show up on a current background Check?

    Felony and misdemeanor charges pending trial

    Robert’s Answer

    It depends on the background check. Who is doing it? Operate under the "better safe than sorry" presumption. I got fired from circuit city in high school because I failed to disclose a misdemeanor, don't be that guy (or girl). Hire a lawyer, address the case, put it behind you, be honest.

  • What does a motion to compel mean in a criminal case,especially for the accused in a criminal case?

    my friends incarcerated and his attorney filed for a motion to compel in a rape case where he is accused,is this a good step for the defendant?

    Robert’s Answer

    Likely discovery related. Often times (unfortunate and unbelievable as it may sound) the state is a little lax/lazy on handing over information. The lawyer is likely addressing that.

    Robert’s Answer

    Were you represented? It is unlikely that a judge will overturn an 8 yr old plea. Not liking the deal now isn't grounds to reverse. Hire an attorney to look into it for you, but know that the odds are not in your favor.

    Robert’s Answer

    This is better posed in the immigration forum. However, $1700 is a steal and hiring a lawyer to assist you in your preliminary examination with a criminal history under your belt certainly couldn't hurt.
