Generally, a person has to pead guilty or "no contest" (which is the same thing as pleading guilty) in order for them to be placed on probation. And if you pleaded either of those, I'd say you are really out of luck. Then I would ask why you would do such a thing knowing you were not...Read more »
You shouldn't have to get the claim file yourself. In fact, you probably should not get it yourself.

A woman stealed a photo of me and my exgirlfriend and she uses it as a profile photo in social media to say that I’m dating her while this is a lie.

A person is not allowed to violate the law just because they are a veteran. However, some jurisdictions have a special program to give veterans one chance to avoid a conviction by completing 12 to 24 months of sobriety treatment instead.

Please be more specific. How can you say it is your "first time" if you have 2 previous theft convictions or probations? I'd say if you have 2 priors you are likely to be prosecuted fully, in the sense that you may not be offered probation at all. You should contact a qualified...Read more »

If you were a victim and had your...Read more »
