  • Does person need a lawyer to represent him at court for shoplifting under $50 at Macy's? What is the worst and best scenario?

    He paid $250 to Macy's and $350 bail to the police Was arrested for shoplifting 20 years ego for shoplifting under$10. Charges were dismissed because it was a mistake. He is an adult.

    Timothy’s Answer

    I would highly recommend getting an attorney. Stealing an amount that low is generally a class A Misdemeanor which carries with it a maximum punishment of one year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. He's probably not looking at anything like that but if he hires an attorney, it's possible that he could get the charge amended to something less serious or could receive an SIS (suspended imposition of sentence) which results in no conviction so long as he does what he's required to do while on probation. Realize he can probably get free consultations with local defense lawyers to determine which one he wants to hire.

  • Convicted of dui in 2012, completed satop as condition of probation, obtained sr-22, now I am finding out i have to get iid why?

    this was not part of the sentencing, or probation. My attorney doesn't seem to think it's a big deal, but another attorney wants 2000.00 dollars to look into it. I don't understand why I am having to do this in the first place when it wasn't part ...

    Timothy’s Answer

    Without more details, I can't say for certain why you need it but $2,000 is more than the IID should cost you. My guess is that this is your second DWI conviction. If that's the case, then it's required. You can call the Missouri Department of Revenue for more details.

  • If I violated my probation for not taking my SATOP classes is there a warrent out for my arrest or wi I serve jail time?

    First careless driving offense

    Timothy’s Answer

    There could be a warrant for your arrest and you could serve jail time. That will really depend on the Judge's decision. You should consult with a local attorney asap (ask for a free consultation) and get SATOP completed. Additionally, I would highly recommend you contact the Missouri Department of Revenue at 573-751-4475 and verify your driving status before operating a vehicle if you had an administrative suspension arising from this event.

  • Will my background check.come back good?

    I have 2 year SIS probation I started November 14th I have a really good job interview that will help me better my nursing career plans will my record show this when I have my back ground check

    Timothy’s Answer

    The other attorneys are correct. It depends on the thoroughness of the background check. The fact that it is a stealing charge will not make it easier to be found compared to other charges, if that's what your asking in your comment to one of the other attorneys. However, it could definitely make a difference on how your employer views it if seen since it's a crime that could impact your employer if they feel you might steal from them.
