Q. What if you weren't stealing but kept it safe because his door was open and couldn't lock it and returned it when he
A: The law is usually defined as permanently depriving the owner of his property or doing something inconsistent with the owners rights. It will be a question of fact based on when you told him what happened. If you told him after he confronted you it may seem likea self serving excuse. If you told him immediately when he got home, it would appear to be more genuine. Other circumstances surrounding your safeguarding the property will also need to be answered.
Q. Good Morning, I have a question for a criminal Attorney
A: In NYS an ankle monitor does not count as incarceration. It is an alternative to incarceration. Therefore he will not receive official credit for that time. It is possible, however, for the sentencing judge to take into consideration the time he was wearing the ankle monitor and reduce his sentence if he is not already at a mandatory minimum.
Q. I was convicted in 1989 for a non-violent felony, did 5 yrs probation, 1 yr of drug rehab. I want my record sealed
A: Depending on the crime and if you have been clean for 10 years you may be eligible to have your case sealed. Your case should be on microfiche at the courthouse and you will have to order it. You need to bring id with your married name. Once you receive the papers... call us and we will review them with you.
