I was caught with petty theft at Nordstrom and I was handcuffed to the rails. I had to signed a juvenile paper what does it mean. What will happen to me? This my first crime I ever committed in my life. The item I stole was 89.99
You are best advised to contact a criminal attorney as soon as possible. If you are a juvenile, you may want to tell your parents about this issue as they will find out if this matter proceeds to juvenile court. From experience, it is best to tell your parents bad news yourself (framing it in the best light you can) rather than allowing them to find out from someone else. All the best.See question

Hire an attorney to help you with this case. If you have any immigration issues, there could be many complications that you are unaware of. Representing yourself on a criminal case is tantamount to performing surgery on yourself, even the most skilled surgeon in the world would never dream of doing that himself. All the best.See question

Cops can and routinely do lie to, deceive, and "harass" criminal suspects and witnesses. Generally speaking many of these investigative tactics are not illegal and regardless the fact of their occurrence will often not be brought to light or proveable given that it will be a criminal suspect's word against a police officer's (police report which will surely exclude the nature and content of the questionable interaction). Everything you say to cops can and will be used against you (the suspect/defendant), nothing you say to a cop can help you given that your admission is only admissible (at trial) by the prosecutor who strategically would only introduce said statement if it's on balance more inculpatory than exculpatory. Talking to cops is tantamount to playing with fire: silly, a recipe for disaster, and inadvisible in all instances. Hire an attorney. All the best.See question

1203.4 relief can be obtained which is essentially a post-conviction dismissal (some inaccurately refer to as an "expungement"). This relief will have no effect on immigration but will be helpful for employment purposes. Undocumented persons can, among other things, legally practice law in California so there are few real restrictions on undocumented persons. All the bestSee question

You should look into hiring an attorney to help you through this. I assume you've filed a restraining order against your husband because he's engaged in domestic violence against you or threatened to do so. This behavior isn't appropriate, maybe illegal, and puts you at risk of being seriously injured or worse. All the bestSee question

You'll need an attorney to review all the facts who can then present the matter to the DAs office. Sometimes the DAs Office will agree not to oppose the motion in which case the judge will almost certainly grant the motion. Other times the DA will oppose the motion in which case the court will hold a contested hearing. All the best.See question
