Customer Question

I live in Florida, and have an Arizona 13-1203.1 charge from 2008- guilty, fine and counseling completed.
JA: The Criminal Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: Two questions: One is the considered a first level misdemeanor, and two is there any recourse to getting it expunged.
JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?
Customer: Have not contacted an attorney. I live in florida, the charge took place in AZ in 2008
JA: Is there anything else the Criminal Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: Obviously this affects my ability to get a job. This was a single punch altercation with brother in law who had subsequently asked for charges to be dropped.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Criminal Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
