You should hire an experienced immigration lawyer to help you before you do anything further. If you do not have an immigration lawyer yet, now is the time to find one. As it relates to the DS160 questions: 1) offer to engage the services and disorderly conduct are both criminal offense. 2) As long as you do not have anything else on your record, the answer to 2) is no. 3) The answer is probably no. I obviously don't know your full history. If the uncertainty concerning this question is limited to the plea bargain referenced in your question, my opinion is as follows: as an alleged attempted customer you are not a prostitute. Procuring prostitution is probably along the lines of being a pimp or human trafficking of prostitutes, which probably is not applicable to your situation. Also, in your situation, it probably was an arrest made by an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute (which commonly occurs in Detroit). Probably nothing was procured and the only thing that was probably exchanged were words (again, I do not know the specific facts of your case.. My wife, attorney Sufen Hilf, would probably know the answer to this question. I would defer to the expertise of an immigration lawyer who is made fully aware of your history, conviction records, and the facts of your case. Again, my advise is to hire an immigration lawyer to review your paperwork and represent you prior to submitting any type of paperwork.See question

If the individual who was sentenced believes she was treated improperly by the prosecution, the Judge, or her own lawyer she has a right to seek appeal, provided she files the appeal in a timely manner. The individual in question can hire a lawyer to explore all remedies which she may have to address her circumstances.See question

The only way to address the probation violation is to appear in Court. Both the bench warrant and the probation violation will need to be addressed. The 52/3 District Court is not the easiest court to deal with, and you will definitely need the help of an experienced criminal lawyer.
If the probation violation is established by either a plea or after a hearing, you will be at the Judge's mercy when it comes time for sentencing. The Judge can decide to do nothing, place you back on probation, add conditions to your probation, or incarcerate you. For a DWLS under local ordinance or for a first offense, the maximum punishment is 93 days in jail. If the DWLS was charged as a 2nd or subsequent offense, the maximum punishment is 1 year in jail.
Your lawyer will help you convey any positive information concerning your background which may help you achieve a more lenient result from the Court.See question

You should retain the services of an experienced immigration lawyer to help you wife. There may be more to your wife's eligibility to obtain a green card that goes beyond your criminal history.See question
A probation violation has been filed. I took a PBT test and blew a. 017. I'm 22, female and is 180 lbs. I only had nyquil for my cold. Did I take too much and how long before the test could cause it to get to this level?
NyQuil contains alcohol, so it could be the source of a pet reading. You should carefully read the label of any medication that you take to make sure it does not contain anything that can violate your probation. Since the violation of probation was filed, you need a lawyer to help defend you. If you haven't done so, you should retain a lawyer immediately. Your lawyer should be appraised of any explanation that you have for the violation so he/she can help you obtain the best result. With a probation violation, once it is established by a plea or after a hearing you are at the Judge's mercy when it comes to sentencing. Different Judges have different judicial philosophies when it comes to this type of a violation, and an experienced lawyer can help formulate the best course of action, taking into consideration who your Judge is.See question

You should discuss this matter with the lawyer that represented you at the time you were sentenced. The Judgment of sentence should contain the terms and conditions as to any term of incarceration.See question

My license is suspended in Michigan for unpaid tickets. I just read something that said Michigan is one of the states that doesn't share traffic information (or something like that). I know it's a long shot. Just curious.
I have been hired by people from out of State on several occasions to clear up traffic issues in Michigan that have lead to suspensions in their home State. Your best best is to resolve the tickets to prevent any issues in the future. If the tickets are misdemeanors you should hire a lawyer to help you.See question

It is not uncommon for a lawyer to work out a plea bargain for the charge of "Offer to Engage the Services..." because the local Detroit ordinance calls for a mandatory period of incarceration if convicted as charged. Typically the city of Detroit will not approve statuses such as MCL 771.1 to remove the conviction from an individual's record. Moreover, your case is post judgment, and the applicable appellate period has concluded. You are even less likely to get the city of Detroit to agree to anything post-judgment. A motion for relief from judgment is probably not advisable, because if you were successful (and the odds are long against you being successful), it could lead to the original charge being reinstated. The original charge would potentially create some serious immigration issues. From the tone of your question, it does not seem you would be successful at trial if the case was litigated.
The only relief that I can see is pursuing an expungement in approximately 5 years. There is a possibility that the disorderly conduct will not appear on a record outside of the 36th district court because it is a 90 day misdemeanor offense. If you were not fingerprinted there is a better chance the conviction will not appear in your history. You may want to check your record (or lack thereof) with the Michigan State Police website iChat search.
You also may want to consult with an immigration lawyer with regard to the fact that "now I am looking for other jobs and my previous employer is applying for GC (Green Card)".See question

You need to hire a lawyer and discuss your case in private with him or her - not in a public forum. The best and worst scenario cannot be determined until you discuss the case with a lawyer in private. Possession can be joint (meaning more than one person can be legally prosecuted for possession the same item of contraband). What is you best defense/strategy can only be determined by your lawyer once he/she has all the information about the case.See question
