In the state of Ohio Law, I must plead guilty before I can enter a diversion program. Please advise on that.
The problem is this, my conditional green card expires in August 2014, I don't think I have enough time. If I plead guilty to misdemeanor and the sentence is not more than 1 year and actual jail term is less than 6 month or maybe 1 year probation, do you think I can apply to remove conditions on my green card and get 10 years? Because I must apply for new green card before August 2014. What do you think?
I also had a case in New Jersey that was dismissed without any plea agreement, do you think that is nothing to worry about? It was a pre-trial intervention but didn't have to plead guilty and once I completed the program, it was dismissed.
How can I get the prosecutor to drop 3 charges? Is the something my lawyer can do?
