    My fiance was in jail for two weeks sentenced for probation violation so the judge imposed his original sentence. After two weeks in jail he was relased and told he was free to go. After two months they came and picked him back up and told him he ...

    Larry’s Answer

    Your fiancee should at least get credit for the time he has already served on the probation violation. You should seek an attorney that practices in the sentencing court on a regular basis and have him get credit for the time served and he may also seek to get him released for other reasons. The facts and paper work will dictate what remedies he may have but do at least get the public defenders office to review the matter. Good luck.

  • 1994 I was convicted of petty theft and if recently came up I was 19 @ the time can this be expunged

    mishandling use of property was the final charge

    Larry’s Answer

    In Ohio you can file a petition for expungement in the same court that you were convicted. You have a waiting period but t in your case you have already waited the required period. As long as you have not been convicted of another case or have one pending, you can have the record sealed. Get a lawyer in your area to do this for you, it should not be very expensive . good luck.
