Q: My child's mother made a false report on me landing me a misdemeanor class A, she admitted to me she lied, What to do?

I have a warrant for the charge but have proof text messages that she lied? What can I do about this? She admitted that she did it to have my rights terminated.

Grant St Julian III answered on Sep 12, 2019

The warrant needs to be recalled first. Unfortunately, you are not going to be able to walk into court, say "my ex lied", and have everything dismissed.

Get with your attorney ASAP. Good luck.

Q: can a charge be dropped if coerced into a search when I said no more than once to enter my home?

Cops show up at my house on a tip there were drugs inside, without a warrant. They asked to come in, I said no. They said we’d be detained (there were 3 others there) until they got a warrant. I said no. Then they said we’d all be arrested if they couldn’t come in. So I reluctantly agreed.... Read more »

Any case CAN be dismissed, but just because the police lied to you will not automatically cause the matter to go away. Start talking with local lawyers. Good luck.

Q: Suspended license in different state?

Unpaid speeding ticket in Oklahoma, was sent a letter that says my driving priviledges are suspended in Oklahoma, but I have a Texas license, what happens if I get pulled over in Texas? Will I get arrested? Or is it only in Oklahoma?

Eventually Oklahoma will notify Texas about your situation, and your Texas license will be suspended. Contact an attorney in Oklahoma to see what can be done to avoid a conviction on the tickets in that state. Good luck.

Grant St Julian III answered on Sep 5, 2019

There must be more to the story; what you describe doesn't detail a criminal offense. Why are you "hunted by the police"? What charges are you facing? Is a warrant outstanding for your arrest? Get with an attorney. Good luck.

Q: Court order for Deferred Disposition for Misdemeanor C charge. Is this real dismiss if I completed my community hours

Is this real dismiss if I completed my community hours by the court assigned date? What shall I put when I apply for new job? I have no priors.

Thank You.

Grant St Julian III answered on Jul 27, 2019

If you successfully complete deferred disposition on a class c misdemeanor case, it will be dismissed but that does not mean all existence of the matter disappears. You can truthfully state you have not been convicted of the offense, but you were charged even though the case was dismissed.
