    Courtney’s Answer

    While the information that you have provided is vague, I would assume he is at the residential center in Johnson County. If he failed to return from the residential center on a pass, then the residential center will contact the District Attorney's Office and a new charge of aggravated escape or escape (depending on the conviction that placed him at the center) may be filed. The new charge could have significant implications. He should speak to an attorney immediately to discuss this matter with greater detail.

  • Do u think they will violate my supervised bond in johnson county, kansas for a ua positive for marijuana?

    I have doctor recommendation for marijuana in ca and informed them I would not be clean prior

    Courtney’s Answer

    It is likely that your bond supervision officer will file a non-compliance report with the Court if you are to test positive for marijuana after being placed on bond supervision. If the marijuana was in your system prior to being placed on bond supervision, then the officer will monitor the levels of THC in your system to ensure the levels are falling which would be to your benefit. The doctor recommendation for marijuana will have little weight in Johnson County, and could only be addressed by the Court as bond supervision will not recognize that as a valid prescription.

  • My boyfriend beat me up the reduced his charges from aggrivated battery causing great boddily harm to simple battery

    he has a felony drug charge on his record and a misdomenor retail theft what is sentencing on the battery to me

    Courtney’s Answer

    Misdemeanor battery is a class b person misdemeanor. The sentence shall be a definite term of confinement in the county jail which shall be fixed by the court and shall not exceed six months. The maximum fine is $1,000. In most cases, the Court will grant a probation rather than confinement.

    Certainly, the attorneys in this matter will have specific and detailed advice on the potential sentence given his specific history. I would suggest asking the attorneys involved in this case.

    The Kansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers is a 250 member, non-profit organization of criminal defense lawyers and related professionals. The website is located at http://www.kacdl.org/ This website may provide guidance to attorneys practicing criminal defense in Wichita.

    Additionally, if he is unable to retain counsel, then he will be able to request court appointed counsel to assist in this matter. He would likely need to complete a financial affidavit to determine if he qualified, and if he does, then the court would appoint an attorney to assist him.

    Wisconsin laws regarding expungment, juvenile records and the decay of such records would apply. A Wisconsin attorney would be better suited to advise you on the status of the law as it pertains to this issue.

  • Once the diversion period is over and the charge is dismissed,can any body see the charges admitted during the agreement?

    I was charged with patronizing a prostitute in Overland Park. In order to get diversion, my understanding is that I need to admit certain charges against me. Assuming I complete my diversion period as per agreement and the charges are dismissed, ...

    Courtney’s Answer

    Even though the charges are dismissed pursuant to the diversion agreement, many background checks will still show that you have been charged with an offense and the disposition is dismissed. If you are concerned with the original charge being located, then an expungement would be needed.

  • Is there any best authority to find out what will show on your criminal background check?

    I have a misdemeanor about 20 years ago. Will it still show on a background check, that using your fingerprinting?

    Courtney’s Answer

    The misdemeanor may be located on a background check. If you are concerned, then filing an expungement petition in the court of conviction would be a safeguard against the location of the conviction. If you recall the court of conviction (ie. Overland Park Municipal Court), then you can contact the court clerk and determine if the court still has a record of it.

  • Is it enough evidence for the court to convict me for saying yes to a question regarding wearing a condom in a sting operation?

    Courtney’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    You need to speak to an attorney regarding this situation. The case will likely involve more factors than just the condom. The prosecutor will likely rely on more evidence than just that point. The exchange of money and the method of meeting may be factors. It is important to review the police reports and your recollection of the events with your attorney so that you may make a decision on the strength of the case and how you wish to proceed.
