Abuse of an elderly person over i think $500. My parents had wrote me a check and had forgot about it, they are both disabled and my father has dementia. I was out of town and they called the bank because they were missing money from their account. They filled out papers from the bank and they got their money back. Well, even though, my mom finally realized she had wrote the check, it was too late and I had been charged. There are only the two violations, there had been another because I hadnt reported to probation right after i was charged because my mother was in ICU almost near death, but i did make contact to let them know that.
I had an unpaid ticket in indiana, which i finally paid once i realized theyd suspended my license (that was because I was pulled over for a broken tail light and the officer let me know). But because of the broken tailight, he charged me with driving on a suspended license, which was settled. I haver an inidiana license but was pulled over in kentucky, so kentucky had my license resuspended apparently. Well, after all this was cleared, and was supposed to be settled, i was pulled over again in the car with wrong registration in which they informed me it was still suspended. Indiana has my license suspended because kentucky suspended it. Ive been trying for two months to get it fixed and indiana says talk to kentucky, kentucky says talk to indiana. its absolute insanity
it was like a domino effect and now neither BMV knows what to do, so ive thought about going to Dept of transportation to see how to resolve it
Thank you so very much for your input. You're response and answers have helped very much. I wish i had you as my lawyer because i have a public defender and no offense to attorneys, but she is just terrible, every public defender ive dealt with has been terrible. I have all of that information that i am going to take to court with me. My judge and prosecutor are pretty harsh people, but i was hoping to say in court on tues basically "Ive gone through a rough patch in my life, which is no excuse for what I have done, i had a few violations of the agreement we had for diversion, but since that, i have been on the straight and narrow, I do completely understand if its the courts decision to give me a felony charge, but i plead to give me a second chance and let me prove the court wrong...that i am not a criminal". i understand they hear stuff like that everyday, but being that they know how to read people and will know its sincere may help i would hope. Could there be anything else i could offer to them that may help? weekly probation appointments, etc?
