Yes you do need help. What you need to do is contact a local attorney who regularly defends clients facing criminal charges. Do not post any further information about your case online. What you post online on a public forum such as this can be read by the police and others who may wish to do you harm. Only a criminal defense attorney can analyze your situation and determine the best possible strategy for you to follow.See question
My boyfriend and i got into some legal trouble together. And at that time the officer said i was to have no contact with him. They did NOT tell him he couldnt see me though.... i have no idea if it is in effect or even binding. He is in county ...
More information is needed to answer your question. Analysis of the issue depends on the nature of the no contact order you have been issued. Was it merely an order from a police officer? Was it part of a release agreement you were issued by the jail? Was it an order from a judge? Is there a restraining order against you? Were you convicted of a crime, and have a no contact order as part of your conditions of probation? Are you facing any criminal charges?
Please DO NOT answer these questions online. Anything you post online can be viewed by people who do not have your best interests at heart.
You should consult a criminal defense attorney confidentially to find out where you stand.See question

In Juvenile Court, there are many options. If your son has not had previous difficulties with the law, it is likely your son will be offered a deal that will enable him to earn dismissal of the charge, and expungement of the entire matter. Consult an attorney who handles such matters. And do not post anything else online about your son's case.See question
Yeah i want to hunt but since i committed felony (at 18) i hear I've permanently lost my rights to hunt or to the second amendment
The best way to accomplish what you are seeking is to get your conviction set aside pursuant to ORS 137.225. This process, commonly called expungement, enables many people to clean up their record. Many class C felonies, as well as misdemeanors, qualify for expungement in Oregon. You did not provide sufficient information to analyze whether you qualify for expungement. You should contact an attorney who handles criminal matters to find out whether you qualify for expungement.See question

Oregon law authorizes expungement of juvenile and adult records. You should contact an attorney who practices in the State where your case was handled to get advice on your options. As a first step, you should obtain whatever documentation you can get from the court where your case was handled. Your attorney will need to look at the paperwork in order to evaluate your options.See question
In the US, the age of consent is 18. In the UK, it's 16. How does this apply to "cybersex?" For example, if a person who is 18 in the US engages in sexual roleplay over chat with a person who is 16 in the UK, would this be a crime? Assume no p...
In addition to the criminal penalties that apply to people who engage in sexual contact with minors, even online sexual flirtation that dies not turn into any physical contact, anyone who engages in such activity exposes himself to potential extortion. The risks to this activity are enormous. The person you are flirting with might in fact be a government agent or a blackmailer. Don't ruin your life. Find someone your own age and leave the children alone.See question
I have 2 sexual conduct with minor felonies, 1 in Ga in 1977 and 1 in Az in 1990 . There is currently a CPS investigation based on a recent allegation that allegedly occurred over a year ago
Oregon law has very harsh consequences for situations like this. Under Ballot Measure 11, a person can go to prison for many years for certain sex offenses, even as a first time offender. You need to consult an attorney who regularly defends clients facing charges like this. Do not talk to the police, or anyone else investigating the matter. If you are contacted by the police, the only safe thing you can say is that you WILL NOT SPEAK WITHIUT YOUR ATTORNEY PRESENT. That is exactly what the police do when they are under investigation. The reason is that the police well know that the legal system is not fair to people who do otherwise. Be smart, and consult an attorney immediately. And no not post anything else about this online. What you post on a public forum such as this can be read by the police and others who may wish to cause you harm.See question
I was arrested last weekend with a group of friends for disorderly conduct. We were being taunted which ended up leading to a fight (we were much more on the defensive side of the fight and I got beat up pretty good). We did react to the taunting ...
Normally, at your first court appearance you will find out what charge the prosecutor intends to prosecute against you, and you enter a not guilty plea. There are some exceptions to this, however. For example, some courts offer reduced consequences for those who are charged with low-level offenses and wish to resolve their case quickly. You should not plead guilty without first consulting an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, the court will appoint one for you. Just be aware that sometimes the option that seems most expedient may end up causing more problems for you further down the road. For example, if you seek to expunge this matter from your record, or the previous legal matter you spoke of in your post, you need to be aware that Oregon's expungement law (ORS 137.225) creates lengthy waiting periods for people who have multiple convictions. The consequences to a criminal charge can be long lasting. Therefore, be sure to get advice from an attorney before you decide which way to proceed.See question

I think it was a class c felony
Oregon's expungement law is found in ORS 137.225. The statute provides that many (but not all) misdemeanors and class C felonies qualify for a motion to set aside. The requirements include:
1. Compliance with all requirements of the sentence,
2. Waiting period of 3 years from the time of conviction.
3. No other convictions (except for traffic infractions) within the 10 years prior to filing the expungement motion.
4. No pending charges.
You should consult a criminal defense attorney for specifics as to your situation and guidance on the process of clearing this conviction from your record. Many defense attorneys offer a free and confidential consultation to evaluate a person's eligibility for expungement.See question
