Another good thing about a deferred sentence is that after you have completed the probation period, and paid all the costs/fines associated with the sentence, then the charges are dropped and you don't have an official criminal conviction.
I wish you well in 2010.

The problem is I just scared as heck from talking to my lawyer and just need some inside advise. He is charging me a mint 12,000.00 for 2 counts of embezzlemet that occured over a 18 month time. The total amount was on 15000.00. Like i said i can do the defferred charges because this will never happen to me again. I guess my question is this
1 Why is the charge so steep for my attorney?
2 Is my chance of getting deffered charges really that good?
3 Will my 25 years in the military help and be taken into consideration

With a deferred sentenance will this stay on my record after the defferrement is over?
While I suspect that you may have more questions as regards XXXXX XXXXX as time goes on, under the rules of JustAnswer, users are supposed to ask only one question per question thread. While your many follow up questions do relate to the facts you have initially stated, they are in fact new and different questions and should be placed into a new question thread.
Have a great day.
