I'm 21 and was recently caught with 2 grams of marijuana. I live in the state of Kansas and his is my first offense. I am wondering what to expect in terms of sentencing and what my consequences will be. Should I get a lawyer?
Kansas still treats Marijuana offense very seriously. I'd recommend speaking with an attorney that practices in your area.See question
65 dollar item, no criminal record, high gpa in school, cop kept saying since I was a first time offender I was going to probably get a diversion, I got a ticket with my court date on it
You need to speak with an attorney. The Judge will allow you a continuance if you tell them you're trying to consult an attorney about your case. Diversion might be the best way forward, but you need to explore all of your options first. A diversion isn't something that should be taken lightly either, there are lots of requirements and other obligations you'll need to meet.See question
My child's father has a few DUIs, and I am not able to see the details about them. I can see very little online, but I did notice that the latest DUI was marked "transferred to felony court." Does this mean that he is going to go to jail?? He ...
It means this is at least his 3rd DUI and it will be transferred to the DIstrict Court.See question
Depending upon the court your case is in, you can generally obtain the discovery, if you don't have an attorney, through the court clerk, or the prosecutor's office. If you do have an attorney, ask them to review the discovery in your case.See question

From my experience with Ellis County District Court, they do not often deviate from their policy of 15 mph over. I would advise you speak with an attorney in Hayes for a second opinion, but I don't think your odds are good.
Best of luck.See question

I was arrested for a DUI in April of 2015 in Kansas. I have completed my diversion and had an interlock device in my car for the required amount of time. Since I have completed everything will it still show on my driving record that I was on diver...
If your license was suspended as a result of the DUI, then yes this shows up on your driving record.
Your criminal record is another thing entirely, and if you completed your diversion it will not show up on your criminal record as a conviction. You can also look into the possibility of expungement of the diversion with the court.
