I would like to know if there is any way I can pay a traffic violation fine (Follow too Close) and any other fees by mail. I was told over the telephone that I have to appear in Court because my money order was received after the Court date. I liv...
Dear Sir or Madam:
For those of us that practice in Monroe City Court, we could probably all agree that it may matter a very, very good bit depending on which judge is assigned to your case. That said, if you are able to provide documentation regarding your unexpected surgery as well as your rehabilitation/recuperation orders, you may be able to provide that documentation to one of the city prosecutors and have your matter placed back on the docket so that you can get the money to the Court in what would be considered a timely manner. That would be where I would start!
I'm 20 and was arrested and charged with felony theft after confessing to stealing $700 from a previous employer. My bail was set at $1500. My arraignment is tomorrow morning. I have no prior criminal history. •should I plead guilty being that ...
Gosh, I guess this answer is late in coming, but here are my answers (with only limited knowledge of your case):
1) Definitely not.
2) Probably. A felony charge is very serious and could amount to something that will haunt you for a very long time. (But, if the value was only $700, it should have been charged as a misdemeanor.)
3) Yes. (If you did not plead guilty earlier today)
4) If the charge is indeed felony theft (value over $750, but less than $5000), then you're looking at a potential sentence of up to five years and/or a fine of up to $2,000.
5) Since you have no prior criminal history, it is almost a certainty that the State will be seeking any true jail time, but may offer you a suspended sentence. Regardless, if you do plead guilty with a sentence involving jail time, most judges will allow you to plead guilty and be sentenced on another day so that you can get your affairs in order (or report to begin your sentence on a particular day).
they have lost my file no records for me or know what i was arrested for, nothing. How long do they have to continue delaying a araignment
Well, article 701 of the Code of Criminal Procedure provides the time delays for the State filing a bill of information (which actually makes formal charges against you) or a bill of indictment. If the defendant is not continued in custody following the arrest, then the State has 90 days for a misdemeanor and 150 days for a felony. Then, the State has 30 days after filing the bill to have your arraignment. (But, I'm talking about these two issues, and not going into the time frames involved for instituting prosecution against you, which vary by the severity of the offense, and I'm definitely 'nutshelling' my discussion of these two issues.)See question
I have the DV and resisting arrest on my record. Probation ended last year and I'm eligible to have it expunged. All fees are paid, I've been good haven't picked up anything since. Should I be concerned that it could still be denied for any rea...
Please note that I am a Louisiana attorney, so my response is based on the state of the law in Louisiana. In Louisiana, "no person shall be entitled to expungement of a record" for [several unrelated things] and also for a misdemeanor conviction for domestic abuse battery.
I don't know about how the judges are apt to decide in California, but there are numerous other crimes that while eligible for expungement, the judge might decide to deny if he or she believes it is in the public interest to keep that crime a part of that person's public record.See question
I was on a 5 year pretrial( not allowed to work in medical feild) no arrest for medicaid fraud while working two jobs. I was overpaid by the state and paid back $500. My completion date is January 2018. I also have a county misderminor from 2004 f...
An expungement isn't actually sealing your record since law enforcement (and several other mainly professional entities) will continue to have access to your entire criminal record (with some additional requirements for how and when the information is divulged). But, that said, if you complete your diversionary period in January of 2018, that is when you can start the process of having that matter expunged. (And, please realize I am kind of reading between the lines on this one.) With regard to the 2004 misdemeanor, assuming that you've completed the full terms of whatever sentence you obtained, you can petition the court to expunge the record of that arrest (and conviction) five years from the date of the completion of sentence (with certain exceptions).
I know this response seemed kind of wishy washy, but without additional details, that's pretty much the advice I'm able to give.
Best of luck!See question
