West Valley City, UT asked in Criminal Law and Probate for Utah

Q: I was in probation when I was 17 I ranawayand I’m 20 Haven’t had any problems am I good?

When I was 17 I was on probation I did good till about the third month and it kept getting worse and worse living with my dad(he’d get in my face yelling, threaten to hit me, constantly would kick me out then threaten to call my PO for running away constantly degrade me cause my weed charges(2)) so I brought it up to my PO and tried to talk to my dad and PO to live with another family member at least till my probation was over. After months of trying and being denied cause my dad “knows what’s best” I ran away. I was still 17. I’m now 20 years old almost 21 and I haven’t gotten in any trouble actually living on my own in my own place, have a job and finally got my license back. When I get jobs and get background checks nothing shows up. When i search my name in the warrant thing I don’t have any. So am I good? Can I keep living my life or do I have to turn around a face something that I tried my best to succeed and I wasn’t given the right tools. I haven’t been in any trouble since.

A: You should call an attorney who can look up the case in the CARE system. It seems unlikely that the Court would have any interest in pursuing the case; but, there is no way to know if you are good without determining what occurred in the case.

A: Since this happened when you were a minor you need to consult with a juvenile law specialist.
