I had an unemployment overage tht I owed 1271. I was charged with TOP1st and it was amended to TOP3rd. I have a review date in January if I have good behavior thecase will be noll prossed.
If you complete the period of good behavior, including payment of any required fines and costs, the case will (apparently, according to your question) be dismissed by nolle prosequi. In a background check, unless your case was handled under youthful offender status, the arrest, charge and dismissal will all show up. The case will show up as "dismissed with conditions" or words to that effect.
If you want to seal the record, you will need to seek an expungement AFTER the case is dismissed by nolle prosequi. Most people ask an attorney to assist them with an expungement, but from the question the case is not ready for expungement yet.See question
I been on pretrial intrevention for a year now and I have to take random drug screens cause of color code. I failed a test back in may and now I have a court date sept. 28th. What is fixing to happen? Do I need a attorney?
There are a number of possible consequences, ranging from entry of judgment and imposition of sentence to intermediate sanction. Without knowing more about your case, it is not possible to predict what WILL happen, but it is safe to bed that you are better off going in With an attorney rather than without one.See question
My wife was arrested on petit theft 3rd in Mobile, Alabama. It's been 4 years since the offense and she just posted a $1000 secure cash bond this weekend. Can she still file a motion with the municipal court judge to withhold or defer conviction?
Withheld adjudication also known as deferred prosecution is not available through a motion by the defendant. What you seem to be referring to is an agreement made between the prosecutor and the defense in which the prosecutor agrees to withhold adjudication if the defendant does certain things. In Mobile, the agreements can include paying court costs, attending theft classes, and even checking in with a probation officer.
You will want to discuss the facts of your case with an attorney to help decide the best course of action in your particular case.See question

It is extremely important that you retain an attorney to assist you immediately. You may need to surrender yourself on the warrant, but you will want the assistance of counsel even before turning yourself in to the Sheriff.
This is a very serious charge, based on the facts you presented. Given your plans for the future, it must be handled with care and consideration. Frequently in the law, there are several ways to handle a criminal case, but the fast or quick way is almost never the best way when dealing with a felony.
Finally, remember that you have rights...exercise them. The first one to exercise would be the right to remain silent until you have spoken with an attorney. Even statements made to explain the mistake you describe can be turned around and potentially used against you.
TLDR: Hire a lawyer and remain silent until you do.See question
Does anyone know if a "CASE ACTION SUMMARY" & "DEPOSITION" are the same thing? This is for a new job. In order for me to be hired on, I must first prove there are no convictions on my record (both charges have been "DISMISSED" &/or "NOLLE PROSSED"...
A Case Action Summary and a Deposition are two very different things. The Case Action Summary is maintained by the court and shows what happened with the case. A Deposition is usually a term used to describe the affidavit of the complaining party which puts the case in motion.
From what you are describing, it sounds like you need the Case Action Summary. I would also suggest you might want to get two copies, one for your records and one for your prospective employer. You may or may not need certified copies, in which the Clerk of Court certifies that they are true and correct copies. Ask your prospective employer.
Finally, you may wish to consider getting the matter expunged from your record. An attorney can answer questions about that, but will need to gather more information than can be properly collected here.See question
Is needed an attorney for this case?
Theft in the Third Degree, which is usually the actual charge, is a Class A misdemeanor. It can carry up to 1 year in jail, a $6,000 fine, or both. The maximum penalties can be less depending on which court your case is in. There are frequently issues in these cases which allow a person who is charged with this crime to avoid a conviction, i.e. being found guilty. Whether this type of resolution is possible is extremely fact specific. You should consult with an experienced attorney. There is really no way to give a complete answer without knowing a lot more about the case, which can only be properly explored during a consultation.
I recommend scheduling an appointment to discuss your case with an experienced attorney.See question
Hello, I'm 15, live in Alabama, and I was convicted of shoplifting a pair of shoes valued at $95. Before this, I had a perfectly clean record until this past June ( I haven't even gotten in trouble at school). I got a paper in the mailbox from a l...
If you are 15 years old, it is likely that your case was handled in a juvenile court. If that is the case, your record is already sealed. As to the $200, that is a separate matter from the shoplifting which is civil, not criminal, in nature.
If you have any of the paperwork from the shoplifting case, look at the case number (usually in the upper right part of the paper.) If it starts with the letters "JU," your record is

Ordinarily, the guarantee of venue would prohibit Baldwin County from prosecuting an offense which allegedly occurred in Mobile County. With that being said, receiving stolen property generally can be prosecuted where the defendant who allegedly received this property is found in possession of the stolen property. My first thought, however, is whether you were arrested in Baldwin County for a Mobile County warrant?
One way or the other, these are felony charges, which are by definition very serious. You will want to discuss these matters with an attorney, who can determine more about the facts of your case, and discuss possible defenses.See question
An old friend is asking because something from her past has come back to haunt her
A validly issued a warrant for a persons arrest never expires. However, in many instances, a judge may be willing to recall the warrant and resolve the matter. If you or someone you know has an active warrant, it is advisable to contact an attorney to discuss whether any relief may be possible.See question

As.others have opined, simply entering a guilty plea is a bad idea. You should talk with an attorney who is experienced with DUI law and who understands both the administrative and judicial procedures involved in defending a DUI charge. It seems that right now you are focused on the result of a test, i.e. 0.18 grams of alcohol per 210 liters of breath. Well, that is important evidence, but it's far from everything. When you consult with an attorney, be prepared to discuss what (if anything) you had been drinking, and for how long. Any medical issues you may have that have nothing to do with the DUI itself may be important. If you know why the officer stopped you, you should be prepared to discuss that as well. You should be prepared to walk your attorney through every stage of the evening from when you took your first drink until you were booked into jail.
DUI seems pretty straightforward, but it is actually really, really complicated. In many cases, an attorney can provide you with a much better result than a straight guilty plea. Some cases, of course, will eventually require a guilty plea. So why retain an attorney if you plan to eventually plead guilty. First, your attorney can assist you in the plea negotiation process, which can save you a lot. Secondly, a DUI conviction is going to absolutely haunt you for years. Ask a friend with a DUI how much extra their auto insurance went up. As the weeks become months, which become year, I would think you'd want to know that every facet of your case was examined and that there simply was not anything that could be done before you pleaded guilty. On the other hand, imagine just pleading guilty and wondering, months later, if there was something you could have done.
I recommend consulting with an attorney before making any final decisions.See question
