  • I want to do a criminal check on myself. where can I get one done?

    I believe the charges were dropped or expunge. If that is the case, do I still have to mention to an interviewer? Especially a government job

    Harvey’s Answer

    To do a criminal background check, I would hire a private investigator. They can do a comprehensive investigation. If you had something expunged there are a few exceptions where you still must disclose. For example going into law enforcement or trying to become an attorney. Good luck.

    The form says providing your SOC Is voluntarily but not providing it would delay the processing time of the application

    Harvey’s Answer

    Already takes about 6 months to process with Social Security number. Do you really want to delay longer?

  • Do I have to stop behind a marked stop bar when approaching a red light.

    I was stopped by an officer because the front wheels of my vehicle went beyond the stop bar at traffic light. There was no crosswalk at the intersection nor any other vehicle traffic for me to impede.

    Harvey’s Answer

    Unfortunately the answer is yes. There is caselaw in Pinellas County that is directly on point.

    You have an excellent chance of suppressing the refusal but the prosecutor can still proceed with trial if the video arguably shows impairment. Good luck.

  • After charges are sealed does an arrest still show on my record?

    If I successfully seal the charge against me- will my arrest still show? I am confused because on the form to seal it just says list the charge(s) against me and makes no mention of the arrest.

    Harvey’s Answer

    Once sealed for 10 years you can have expunged which destroys all records.

    Harvey’s Answer

    You can view the Clerk of Court records online. Search the county where this occurred and then you will know what is showing. Expungement is an option to explore if you don't like what you see. Good luck.

  • Is a photo of marks from choking enough evidence to get charged with domestic violence?

    My ex boyfriend choked me during an argument a month ago to the point where I could not breath and was afraid for my life. I took a photo of my neck and the marks that were left from his hands, I want to report it to the police now that I got away...

    Harvey’s Answer

    The police will speak with you and look at the photos. They may also talk with the Defendant to get his side of what happened. Then they will decide if they have probably cause to bring charges. The ultimate filing decision will be made the prosecutor. Good luck.
