I paid all court costs but never finished satop a $700 3 day program... HELP
A: You need a lawyer who can meet with the judge and prosecutor in an effort to get the previous deal reinstated before you surrender yourself. You may be able to achieve the same result on your own, but it is doubtful. Call me or another lawyer for help. Jeff - firstname.lastname@example.org, www.criminallawyermissouri.com
