First of all, the Tennessee District Attorneys are very against marijuana usage, because it is a crime. If you are young, and it is your first time offence, then there may be the possibility that a good attorney could get you off of pre-trial diversion. If you could do that, then you would have a...

Q: Hello, In 1990 I was charged with A Violation of Custody Order with no conviction. Will this felony ever go away?

I worked for the State of Colorado for 27 years. I’ve never had any further legal issues or arrests. I now live in Tennessee. The arrest was in Colorado.

Thanks.

Mr. Kent Thomas Jones Esq. answered on Aug 8, 2019

I'm not sure if your criminal issue was in Colorado or Tennessee. I would contact an attorney in whichever state it occurred.

If you were not convicted, then I think you have a chance of getting it expunged. If you were convicted or entered into a plea, then you would need to talk with...

Q: If I have a charge partner and I plea guilty to all charges does it automatically make my change partner guilty
Anthony M. Avery
Anthony M. Avery answered on Aug 2, 2019

I do not know what a "charge partner' is, and do not believe there is such a thing. I assume you are talking about Conspiracy, and if so, your guilty plea does not automatically make someone else guilty also. They may be a named or unnamed co-conspirator.

His child support. He also doesn’t have a place to live or a car. He was arrested for a felony drug charge recently. Is that enough to file a request to stop visits or ask for supervised visits?

Leonard Robert Grefseng
Leonard Robert Grefseng answered on Jul 15, 2019

Those are certainly reasons to be concerned, but since your question doesn't mention the age of the child ( and lots of other factors the Judge has to consider) no lawyer can provide a guaranteed result. Will cutting off the child's relationship with her father truly benefit the child? If the... Read more »

You may have a Government Tort Liability Action against the City/County and the Law Enforcement Agency. Contact a competent attorney to file suit, which is not a Jury Trial. However you may not have enough damages nor evidence. You have less than 1 year to build your Case and find an attorney.
