Mr. Klitz is correct that you will be eligible to expunge the conviction for retail fraud five years after your release from probation (or jail if you never served probation), provided that you have no other convictions of any kind on your record.
Be aware, however, that you must petition the court to expunge your conviction - it is not something that simply happens automatically. When you have reached five years from the date of your release from probation, contact an attorney to learn about the process of applying to set aside your conviction.See question
I was dating a 15 year
If you are convicted of a CSC in the 3rd degree, prison is likely. However, there may be other ways to resolve the case, and prison is not necessarily your end result. You need to consult with and hire a good attorney who is experienced in defending sex crimes.See question
Can a soon to be 15 year old date an 17 year old the soon to be 15 year old will be 25 on January 23 and the 17 year old will be 18 in November. What will the parents think? And should they date?
If by "date" you mean "have sex," it's a terrible idea. The age of consent in Michigan is 16, and so having sex with anyone under the age of 16 is a felony. If by dating, you mean, go to dinner and a movie, the only thing stopping you might be the parents, who are likely worried that dating will lead to more.
Also important to keep in mind is that while you can legally engage in sex with a 16 or 17 year old (unless you are in a position of authority, etc...), you cannot exchange naughty photos with anyone under the age of 18, which would also be a felony.See question
My son received a speeding ticket, did not pay the fine, was pulled over by the Portage, MI police and was told if he paid the fine, plus $10 handling, he would be released. We paid the money and he has a receipt. Is this legal?
A police officer can collect a cash bond or the fine so that they could avoid having to take your son to jail on the warrant. You may want to contact the court to verify that he has been given credit for the payment. However, your son was fortunate that he was given that option rather than being taken to jail.See question
I was driving home and a deer ran out in front of me, I ended up swerving and by the time I could correct it, I got into an accident and rolled. I smoked my head on the window, and I don't remember the accident at all. Only people helping me out a...
You may have a defense to the ticket based on your medical condition after the accident. More details about the case would be necessary to make that determination. I would recommend contacting an attorney so that you can have an in-depth discussion about possible defenses.See question
I was charged with m.d.o.p of plants, shrubs, trees... Ect.(turfing)200$-1000$. I spun a few donuts in a field. I took a plea of less than 200$. And plead no contest. I go for sentencing in a few days and was wonderin if i will get drug tested.
You should always assume if you are on bond or probation that drug testing is a possibility, and you should refrain from the use of any alcohol or illegal substances. Whether or not you will go to jail is a difficult question to answer without all of the facts - there are many factors, such as the judge, your prior criminal history, employment, etc., that will impact whether or not you are jailed. If you are represented by an attorney, I would recommend consulting with them prior to sentencing about the things that you might do in order to avoid incarceration.See question
I was drunk don't remember much but I know I wasn't give a ticket or put in a jail cell 3 weeks later I get something in the mail about it!
It is not unusual for charges to be issued days or week after the actual incident occurs. If you received a ticket or notice that a warrant has been issued, you should turn yourself in immediately, and hire an attorney to defend you.See question
I need to know, why is the judge that gave up my case to another judge because he was busy, is coming at me for court cost if he isnt the sentencing judge. My trial was in another courtroom and i was found not guilty on four felonies. So my questi...
Your question doesn't contain enough details to give a solid answer. What were you being sentenced on if you were found not guilty? Were there other counts for which you were convicted? What is the basis for ordering you to pay money? Were you represented by an attorney?See question
I have a year of probation and can not be bound by unnecessary rules for a mistake I made
You can always reject probation, but you would potentially be subject to the maximum jail (or prison, if a felony) for the offense.
Making a decision to reject probation is one that should be considered carefully based on the facts of the case and your criminal history. I would recommend consulting with a lawyer first.See question
And, I am married to the felon, but I have no criminal record, and have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
I don't know that you can be charged for merely residing with someone who possesses a weapon as a felon, but he surely could be charged. If the police ever question you about a gun, you should simply remain silent. Do not say anything. It is far better to remain silent than to lie to the police. (Which, in Michigan, is a crime in itself.)
I would, in your position, encourage your spouse not to possess a weapon as a felon. The penalties at both the state and federal level are quite severe. Depending on your spouse's record, he or she should explore expunction of his felony, if there is only one, and he or she has no more than two misdemeanors.See question
