I had a warrant so at first I gave the officer my sisters name then after he ran everything I complied.. so today I went to court and heard for the first time I will get a disorderly conduct along with hindering and not having a valid license present. I don’t know what to do this would be my first time having anything on my criminal record. I panicked at the time I wasn’t thinking clearly because I was scared.
With experienced counsel, the criminal charges will be dismissed. You did well to come here to AVVO--many of us give free consultations.
With a good lawyer and no prior criminal offenses you would probably qualify for a program where the criminal charge would eventually be dismissed, but this may not be in your best interest. especially if you're not a citizen or if you work in certain jobs etc. You need to discuss this matter with an experienced criminal defense attorney to determine what your best course of action is and what is you best defense. Most of us criminal defense lawyers offer a free in office consultation, you should definitely set one up ASAP.
I do not understand where the disorderly conduct comes from. More information is needed. That offense must be done in public. Sounds like this was a traffic stop or in the station. An experienced criminal defense attorney can minimize the damage. The hindering will be the tough charge to dismiss. Most of us offer free consultations.
No criminal attorney can guarantee a dismissal of charges, no matter who they are. To do so is an invitation for serious problems. Anyone who guarantees anything more than aggressive proper professional representation is providing a false and misleading response.
