1 Answer | Asked in Civil Rights, Constitutional Law and Criminal Law for North Dakota on
Answered on Jul 24, 2017

I will address your question and add additional information that may be helpful. However, as a criminal defense lawyer who offers services throughout North Dakota, I strongly caution you not to handle a criminal case on your own. Criminal law is among the most complex areas of law and, consequently, it easy to accidentally damage your own case. With that being said, you will need to make a Rule 16 Discovery Request. This is the type of request that attorneys make to obtain the evidence against...

Answered on Jul 21, 2017

If you had an attorney, get his or her help to take the issue back before the Judge, as to your efforts to do as told, but impossible. Rural communities have far fewer community service alternatives.

The conditions of probation typically must be done long before the end of probation. I can't tell you the policy of your court and Judge.

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law, Constitutional Law and Wrongful Death for Pennsylvania on

Q: How to get a Terroristic Act that someone else admitting to doing at the trial, sealed from my record?

1 Answer | Asked in Civil Rights, Constitutional Law, Libel & Slander and Criminal Law for Arkansas on
Answered on Jul 12, 2017

If it is a misdemeanor conviction you have at least 90 days of waiting after you file for the expungement (in this case, a seal) before it is granted, if it even would be with pending charges. If it is a felony then you might have other issues you will run into that will prevent you from sealing it.

Hire a lawyer and have them figure it out.
