Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered
Q. Recently applied for expungement and received a denial letter. Says 77-40-105(5)(C) can anybody explain?
A: Depending on your history, you could file motions in those class B cases to reduce them to lower level offenses and become eligible for expungement. It’s called a 402 reduction. An attorney could definitely help with this and might be preferable, as this involves a lot of paperwork and court filings.
Q. I was protesting recently and got arrested and charged with indecent public display.
A: The answer would depend on which municipality issued your SOB license. It also depends on what exactly you are being charged with. An arrest or conviction could possibly impact your license. You should contact an attorney immediately if you have been charged in connection with the recent protests. Many lawyers, myself included, are offering no-cost consultations to people arrested or charged in the recent protests.
Q. PO Violation due to COVID: Had to violate No Contact PO due to exposure of minor son to COVID.
A: Based on these facts, you could have an excellent defense. If your only communication was regarding a potential emergency (exposure to COVID-19), I suggest hiring an attorney to explain this to the DA and fight the case, if necessary.
