James E Hensley Jr's answer You need to talk with a lawyer. You could go to prison from one year to several years. Being revoked means you did not follow the Court's orders regarding your probation. Your question is very broad. We need to know where the case is, the Judge's name, your charges, your name, the specifics of your probation order, etc. Most lawyers will answer your question over the phone. The lawyers listed here are great to help. I'll be glad to talk with you too.
W. Whitfield Hyman's answer If there is a CI you can get their name and let the defendant watch the video, but then the prosecutor has a right to change the offer for the worse or just set it for trial.
You have a right to Discovery but no right to an offer.
James E Hensley Jr's answer Well, gun rights are sort of tricky in Arkansas and some states. The statute of which you speak is drugs. You are probably eligible to have your record sealed. It sounds like your record has been sealed. If so, you can vote and don't have to admit that you have ever been arrested. After you have your record sealed, you can petition the Governor to restore your gun rights.
To have your gun rights restored, you will have to file a clemency action with the Governor of the State of...

2) After you have the order to seal and Arkansas Crime Information Center has sealed your record, you can petition the Governor of Arkansas to...
James E Hensley Jr's answer Perhaps. A mental evaluation is ordered for a defendant when the Judge, your lawyer, or the Prosecutor believe you may not understand the gravity of the situation. In Arkansas, to be fit to stand trial is a fairly low burden. The defendant must 1) understand the charges against him and 2) be able to assist his attorney.
For the most part, when a mental evaluation (called Act III in Arkansas) it is done to ensure the defendant is fit to stand trial. Otherwise, any defendant who is...
James E Hensley Jr's answer This is a criminal law question. Your lawyer will be the prosecuting attorney in the county in which you live. You should start out by calling your local police department and making a complaint. You can also call the prosecutor directly. They have wonderful people who have been trained on how to help you through this difficult time in your life. I wish you well. I'm sure all the people of Justia and the lawyers who help do so also. You keep fighting!
James E Hensley Jr's answer The judge sometimes will consent and take your husband off of probation early. We will need the prosecutor to agree also. You have a very good chance of getting the felony sealed from your husband’s record.
Please realize that even though the record is sealed, other agencies such as private.com is Matt still have the information and use it for a background check. The state of Arkansas will clear the record but these other organizations may not get the message. If one of these people...
