Customer Question

i have a non violent felony that is about 9.5 yrs old, but paperwork i have is confusing. One says its a forgery and one says misdemeanor. I am wanting to start Nursing school and need this removed.. Trying to figure out if any new laws in texas has been passed for this , so i wouldn't have to go to court or pay a butt load of money to an atty
JA: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.
Customer: ok
JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?
Customer: I live in Louisiana but charge was in Texas.. I worked for this real LADIES man as ya say. He was or is a bail bondsman in Marshall, TX. He wanted me to move to marshall so I could be his asst and relieve him on some weekends with bails... So he loaned me the $1800 or $2200 can't remember been so long.. We set up payroll to deduct each wk til paid in full. But when I did not accept his sexual favor advances i was fired and next thing I knew I had deputies at my apt arresting me for theft.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: I was tooo broke to hire an atty back then. So had to use the Free One and of course that got me no where..
JA: The Criminal Lawyer's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.
Customer: No mam I have not... talked to an atty.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: I just want to be able to enroll in Nursing school and have my gun rights restored.. My fiance' is after me to get a concealed carry permit.. I told him I didn't know if i can....
