Legal Answers
Q. What is the result for a first offense, clean record Minor In Possession (alcohol) received 2weeks before 21st bday?
A: The very likely offer would be a dismissal after he completed some condition (alcohol class, community service, etc.). If you don't receive that offer without an attorney, then you should consider hiring one, otherwise an attorney shouldn't be necessary.
Q. What is a ballpark fee for sealing a misdemeanor in Denver?
A: More information is needed to give you an estimate regarding this cost. The first step is ensuring that you qualify to petition the court to seal your record. For a misdemeanor, this would generally require an acquittal at trial, a dismissal prior to trial, or a successfully completed deferred judgment and sentence.
Q. Okay so I've already been sentenced to 90 days and I was supposed to turn myself in by 4 will I get more charges if not
A: You could get contempt of court charges but your bigger concern is that you will likely get more than your original 90 days. You should turn yourself in as soon as possible to minimize the possibility of a longer sentence.
