In Michigan people are often given jail for DUI offense AND placed on probation. When they get out they still must abide by the terms of probation or they could get additional time in jail. Talk to a NM attorney to find out if this is the case in your state.See question
my boyfriend was put on probation in one state and then was extradicted to another and never has been released but now the first state has viiolated him and yet hes still incarcerated what can he do now?
You would want to review the order of probation. In Michigan, in my experience, if you committed an offense before you were placed on probation for another offense, the first offense will not be a reason to violate your probation for the second offense. Once your boyfriend is returned to the first state to face the violation charge, a good attorney should explain to the judge the reasons for the violation, that it was anticipated, and that he would have likely complied with all of the terms of probation if he wasn't locked up in the other state.See question

I was included as a creditor on a chapter 7 that has now been closed without discharge. Can I contact them again for repayment?
Once a bankruptcy case is closed, the automatic stay for collection of debts is lifted. You many want to check to see if they re-filed, or the case was possibly converted to a Chapter 13. If so, there is still an automatic stay preventing from contacting the debtor to attempt to collect a debt. As always, it is best to contact an experienced bankruptcy attorney before you go forward with the collection of your debt.See question

If this is in Michigan, you are looking at a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. You also could get probation or minimal time in the county jail, depending upon the facts and circumstances of your case. I do not know what the penalties are in Indiana, so your best bet is to hire an Indiana criminal defense attorney. Do not talk to the police or anyone else about your case and consult with an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible.See question
My Husband has a felony conviction class 4 for trespassing & can't find a job because of it. We live in Illinois is it possible to get it expunged?
Possibly, depending on your state laws. In Michigan, for example, you cannot get a traffic conviction or DUI expunged, but you can get a trespassing conviction expunged, but only if you have no other misdemeanors of felonies on your criminal record. Your best bet is to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney in Illionois to discuss this matter with you. Some professions, such as police and other government work have access to non-public records, even if you do get your public record expunged.See question

An experienced DUI attorney could possibly get the DUI charge dropped if you were pulled over in violation of your US Constitutional rights. A DUI attorney will most likely challenge the reason you were pulled over by filing a motion to suppress the evidence against you. This will likely trigger an evidentiary hearing where the police office will have to testify to explain why he pulled you over and describe your driving. If you can get a police car video of your driving and the video does not show erratic driving, this could be used to impeach the officer's testimony, making him appear dishonest. You should consult an attorney in your state that is familiar with DUI defense and who knows the procedures for handling these types of cases. It is a very specialized area.See question
