I met my daughter at a pawn shop she was pawning a gun but had no I'd so she called me to use my I'd and I signed pawn slip I never possessed nor did I hand the pawnshop the item and the pawnshop didn't even give me the money for the item all that...
First of all, you just admitted to making a false declaration of ownership of the item. You signed a "declaration of ownership" which states that you owned the item and know it's illegal to make a false declararion. and your "defense" is admitting that you didn't own it but didn't read the paper? unless you have some evidence that the language of the document was concealed or you weren't given an opportunity to read it, the law (or at least the DA) will assume you should have read it and will hold you responsible. However, if you're willing to sell out your daughter, DA might be willing to work with you.
You realize the reason this even came up is because the item probably turned out to be stolen. pawnshop owners usually have no real reason to care about the declaration until an item is discovered to be stolen. This is why an ID and declaration is required to pawn.
Your daughter was either involved in the theft or trying to help get rid of it and figured she could dupe you into covering for her. The story sounds incomplete. But don't give any more statements on this public website.

Your question is a bit confusing. You mention a prior of domestic abuse and a pending charge. and being on bond for that. Is the incident involving police coming to help a woman leave a separate incident that has occurred while you're on bond?
The best answer that can be given for now is that when domestic violence is reported, police are supposed to make a report and submit it to the DA office to decide if charges should be filed. If you're currently on bond for penindg charges, this new report might promo the DA to ask the court to increase your bond. And he can definitely use it to change any plea offers made.
You need to hire an attorney now to help you sift through this.See question
My daughter is being charged with conspiracy with intent to distribute because her ex boyfriend and father had a package sent with her name when did t know anything about it until the issue a warrent
hire her an attorney that she can speak to in confidence. Only with all of the facts can an attorney properly advise her. Her attorney will get access to the police reports to see what evidence the state actually has. She should not speak to any police or investigators until she has talked with a lawyer first.See question
I was pulled over and had bad tag no insurance no license also had a warrant. after putting me in handcuffs they searched me and took roughly about 13 grams of meth . They charged me with five felonies and all the traffic that they could they also...
police are basically duty bound to arrest when there is an outstanding warrant. with the arrest he can search the car if it was to be impounded. he found meth, which is illegal. so he has the authority to arrest for that too. But police don't hold the final say in what you're charged with. the DA does. it may be he saw a problem with the search. who knows.
However, I caution you to make sure "charges not filed" is the same as charged won't be filed. There is a difference. In some courts you can be discharged from court if DA doesn't file within a certain amount of time but that doesn't prevent him from filing it later (for up to 3 years) Unless you have been told by the DA office that charges have been declined, I'd suggest you search your name on OSCN at least once a month for several months to be on the safe sideSee question
I was in an accident no one was injured but admitted I had been drinking and got charged with a DUI no insurance and an expired tag. I haven't went to court yet and need advice on the best thing to do
You'll need a lawyer. If it has not yet been 15 days since the arrest, you need to request a hearing with the Department of Public Safety in order to have a chance of saving your license. Otherwise you will lose your license for 6 months. This can be modified if you are willing to put the interlock in your car ( a device you blow into to start the car and keep it going) If you refused the test or blew a .15 or more, you will have to have the interlock an additional 18 months (if revoked). The only way to avoid all of that is to request a hearing with DPS within 15 days of the arrest. If a blood test was done, then you can wait until you receive word of the results and then you'll have 15 days.
As for the criminal charges, by law, the DUI will be presented to the district attorney's office. The typical plea deal is a deferred sentence, which is probation. But it will come with a lot of fees and costs and classes, and possibly community service.
A DUI has serious implications to your future. It is more than a mere traffic ticket. How you handle it now will determine how much it affects your future. So this is why it is imperative you contact an attorney asap.See question

it is very typical for the DA office to file an application to accelerate prior to a probation ending if it appears everything won't get done in time, even if there is a good excuse and they know it. Filing the application allows them to extend the court's jurisdiction over you to ensure that you finish. If they don't file it before the probation period expires, then they can't insist on you finishing the classes.
Did they also file a warrant? if they have not, then don't panic. Finish your classes.
If they have filed the warrant, then you'll need to hire an atty to help u through any court proceedings. These are almost always about making sure it all gets done.
Once everything is done, the DA can withdraw the application and dismiss the case.See question

What you paid was not the ticket but a cash bond. Edmond Municipal does not allow payments of shoplifting charges without going to court. Which is what you will be doing. What to expect? if you go without a lawyer, you will be at the mercy of whatever the city attorney offers you and he will not be able to advise you as to what you should do, could do. And everything you say to him could be used against you if you decide to take it to trial.
Taking the online classes is not a bad idea, but the city of Edmond won't recognize them.
If you want to avoid being convicted for shoplifting, you could hire an attorney. If your court is really close in time, you can appear and ask the court for more time to hire an attorney. If you've not had a continuance before, the judge will usually grant you 30 days or so.

Depends on which record you're asking about:
1. driving record: no. if you were not convicted of the ticket, it would not appear on your driving record. To double check, pull your record at a tag agency or through the Dept. of Public Safety's website.
2. court clerk record where your ticket was handled: You don't state whether the ticket was handled in municipal court or state district court (aka county court). Both keep their court records, but most muni courts do not put their records online. So it won't likely come up on any online search. If county court, then you can check OSCN.net to see if it comes up by searching your name. If it is there, it will stay online as a public record unless it is expunged. You should contact a lawyer that handles expungements and see if it can be done. However, the cost to expunge it may greatly outweigh your need to expunge it unless the record of a dismissed traffic ticket stands in the way of a job.See question
I was arrested because I was in a very bad situation with an ex boyfriend. Is it going to show up on my background check
there are different types of "background" records involved with DUI's.
1. The Driving Record. (I mention it first because most likely that is what a car insurance company is concerned with. In Oklahoma, the public (including insurance companies) can only access the last 3 years. So, the DUI should not be visible on your driving record ( assuming your license is fully reinstated)
2. There is the arrest record, which is maintained by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations. If the arrest was posted to the OSBI record 9 years ago, it is still there and will stay there until a court orders it to be expunged. If you were given a deferred sentence and the charge later dismissed, you might be eligible to have the charge expunged now. You could consult with a lawyer that handles expungements. For the sake of any future employment opportunities, it would be worth the cost to have the arrest completely removed from your record.
3. Court clerk record where you went to court. If it was in a municipal court, almost all of them keep their records off the internet. OKC's are online. If you went to a state district court, the charge could still be on OSCN.net. You can search your name on the website on the "court records" page. If it is still there, this can be handled by an expungement, too.See question
