Kirk Adams :
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Criminal Law litigation attorney. Thanks for your question. I'll be glad to assist.
Kirk Adams :
Is this your first offense (other than a traffic ticket)?
Yes, this is my first offense
Kirk Adams : Ok. In that case, it is not likely that you really need an attorney - - this is a relatively minor offense and there's jail time possible but not very likely at all.
Kirk Adams : More than likely, you will receive a minimal fine, no jail time, maybe a few months probation and it will be over.
Probation? Like meeting with a probation officer on a regular basis?
Kirk Adams : Also, if you show up for court and you feel like you're in over our head, you can always ask for a continuance for time to get an attorney.
Kirk Adams : Probation would likely be unsupervised.
Kirk Adams : Meaning that you would not have to report to a probation officer on a regular basis.
Okay good! Thank you so much for your help! Do you have any other advice for me?
Kirk Adams : No problem! Glad to help!
Kirk Adams : If this is your first offense, it should not be a big issue - - when you go to court, dress nice, say yes sir/no ma'am and they should let you go without much of a hassle.
Will do! Thank you
Kirk Adams : SURE. THANK YOU for allowing me to help.
