I will make this a short as possible. Two years ago my

I will make this a short as possible. Two years ago my daughter was pulled over for speeding. The police officer was behind her but did not activate his lights until she turned onto a second road. He issued two speeding tickets since it was two different roads. When she went to court, they said she could lose her license. She agreed to a non moving violation... which was a misdemeanor. They said it was no big deal just pay the fine. Fast forward two years, she went for an apartment, and the landlord asked her if she had an altercation with police because it says non traffic related misdemeanor. Is it true in Pennsylvania it will leave her record after 3 years or should we try to have this expunged? I'm afraid this could even put her in danger if she is ever pulled over by police.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PennsylvaniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: This is already on her record. It happened in Feb of 2015JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That's it thanks

Previous employee attempted identiy theft against me. Used a

Previous employee attempted identiy theft against me. Used a forged drivers license with my info, but her picture , to rent a van with my stolen credit card. She didn't return the van. Owner of business that rented the van recognized her in a photo, and identified her. The detective is dragging his feet to do a 'line up' since he says that ultimately the above crimes would just be a misdamenor in California. Is that true? Would the combo of those crimes mentioned just be a misdamenor, I thought most certainly a felony..JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: California...rented a Uhaul van....but the rest of the story is she spent 6000 in credit card bills, BUT the Best Buy store's surveillance cameras playback hasnt' been able to download to the detective's equipment, and she had her hand over her face while walking thru the store, so that would be a harder thing to prove....but we have a witness for the first crimes...JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: There is a police report, and I have been working with a detecti eJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No that's it....this person, a Medical Assistant also stole money from a patient while she was in the restroom.....no charges filed for that though...
