It really depends on the value of the motor vehicle. That being said, depending on some factors, you may be able to avoid jail time and even having this put on your record. I would highly recommend that you contact a criminal defense attorney to further discuss.
Depending on the situation and whether this has happened before, you could be facing a fine, a no-contact order, and some jail time. Your best bet is going to be to contact a lawyer to see if there is anything that can be done to either get the case dismissed or take it to trial.
I want to join the NAVY. Im 28 (Joseph Lee Creel). I caught a Grand Larceny, 1st offense, non-violent charge in 2012. Got 4 years, 2 to serve & 2 on probation. Violated by not reporting. Sent back to serve 2 years of which I flat-timed (100% completed). Can I get this lowered to a misdemeanor so I... Read more »
It sounds like you were already found guilty, or at least pleaded guilty. If that is the case, then unfortunately, you do not qualify for it to be lowered to a misdemeanor. You may be eligible for it to be expunged; however, you will have to wait until five years after all terms and conditions of...Read more »

If it is simple assault, then it will be considered a misdemeanor; however, being that there is a deadly weapon involved, there is a good chance that it has been upgraded to a felony, which could carry some significant jail time.
It sounds like you will need to have an attorney file a contempt action against the mother for failure to abide by a visitation order, assuming that there is one. If there is not one, then you will need an attorney to file the necessary petition to establish visitation rights with the child.

A extradition waiver today. He was up for parole in July. So what I'm asking is first can they put another charge on him after he has already done his time in Alabama ? Second will the time he has served in Mississippi count for time served in Alabama? Thank u
Yes, they can charge him with commission of another crime in another state; however, he will likely not receive any credit in Alabama for his conviction in Mississippi, as they are two different states with two different sets of laws.
You cannot collect; however, your son can. Considering that your son is 21 years old, time is of the essence, because if he does not get a lawyer to file the necessary paperwork before he turns 28, then he will never be able to collect the back child support. I would highly encourage your son to...Read more »
He needs to see about trying to contact a private criminal defense lawyer or get with his public defender. Some lawyers, such as myself, work with their clients to figure out a payment plan to cover fees and expenses; however, your brother will need to contact the attorney.
It really depends on the facts and circumstances. From the sound of it, you have a decent defense already lined up, now it's just a matter of presenting the defense to the jury. I would highly recommend getting in touch with a criminal defense lawyer to further discuss, and refrain from putting...Read more »
Unfortunately, because it is considered a violent crime, it cannot be expunged; however, it looks as though you are eligible for a certificate of rehabilitation, which would restore some of your pre-conviction rights. I would encourage you to reach out to an attorney to discuss further.
