Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
what exactly is the status of this matter? also, was the probation violation alledged while you were on probation, before the case was closed ? i dont know how you can be violated on a probation that there is no record of
hmmm. okay let me ask you one more thing - what are you on probation for now - and how long? is this probation for a violation of the probation there is no record of?
unbelievable and truly interesting - okay thank you for all of that information
now going by what you have told me , what you do need to get this probation vacated because it is based on a non -existant matter - therefore a motion to vacate needs to be filed with a memo of law citing case law in this matter - and, yes, you will need an attorney to assist
so, i suggest that you contact the CO Bar Association and seek a referral of a lawyer who handles criminal defense post conviction matters
use this link for criminal defense - pick the county you need - ask them about filing a post conviction motion to vacate a sentence
