I am accused of "Interference with a peace officer" in

I am accused of "Interference with a peace officer" in Wyoming, citation code no: 6-5-204. This is the definition on the Justia US Law Site: A person commits a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than one (1) year, a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000.00), or both, if he knowingly obstructs, impedes or interferes with or resists arrest by a peace officer while engaged in the lawful performance of his official duties.I received a citation for fishing without a WY fishing license, and I then provided false identity information to the officer (name, address, phone, dob). The following day the officer then discovered I had lied. I am guilty and intend to plead guilty.I have a hearing in Jackson Hole on Thursday, 7/28, and need to know if I should have an attorney present. It's considered a misdemeanor.Please don't answer if your response is simply, "yes, it's advised that you have an attorney present."Thanks!Michael

If Doe is accused of a crime that he is innocent of, and

If John Doe is accused of a crime that he is innocent of, and only because he gets scared, he does all of the following: Resists arrest and hits a police officer, when in jail, knocks a guard unconscious and escapes from jail, when in court after being recaptured, he knocks a bailiff unconscious and runs out of court and escapes, when recaptured, he knocks a guard unconscious and escapes jail again this time stealing a car to do so and leaving it abandoned in a vacant lot undamaged, when recaptured and in court again, it is discovered that he is innocent after all. Will all the assaults, escapes, and the grand theft auto and stuff be forgotten about because John Doe should never have been arrested in the first place because he was innocent and it was the error of the law, or would he still have to pay for those charges? (For the states of Texas and Indiana) Thank you.

How can I prove that because of my mental health conditions

How can I prove that because of my mental health conditions I at times of feeling threatened or in danger my defense mechanisms kick in an I do and say things that I should not be accountable for along with being under the influence, I have been diagnosed with both Bipolar disorder and PTSD. I am charged with two counts of retail organized theft in each case the amounts were less than 200$ per case. I do admit that I was shoplifting but am being charged for organized retail theft because at some point of questioning I said I was going to sell the things I had to my friend but then I go on later to say that I wasn't charging her I was going to give them to her because she gave me 500$ a few weeks before. that was a gift so I told her on the day of arrest that if she went into store an got the stuff I would get it for her no money had been spoken about because there was not going to be I was doing it to help her save money.I did not even know what I said till shown the video

Is it possible to have my criminal record completely

Is it possible to have my criminal record completely expunged in the state of Alabama? I am now 37 and when I was 18 (two weeks after my birthday), I took a dare from a friend and shoplifted a stick of deodorant from Walmart and got caught. When I was 22 I got a charge of resisting arrest and public intoxication during a night at Mardi Gras. I went to court and had those two Nol Prossed but they still show on my record. I work internationally and each time I renew my visa and for any background check I'm always having to explain all three of these charges. I just would like for them to go away..., a clean slate of you will. Is it possible?

My boyfriend and I were arrested in South Gate last October

My boyfriend and I were arrested in South Gate last October we were staying at a hotel that was paid with cash i was at work all day and when i came back at around 7 pm we went to get food and when we came back he went to the front desk and out of no where the cops surrounded my boyfriend and arrested him a short while later the approched me and ask me some questions i stated to them that i was at work all day and didnt know what was going on they stated they were just doing there job. they asked if the vechile i was next to was mine i told them it was a rental and not under my name they then took the key from my hand and began to open the doors and search it i stated it wasnt under my name and i didnt give them permission they told me to "shut up" or i would go to jail. After they told me that they were going to write me a ticket and site me out. while my boyfriend was at the station the cops beat him up pretty bad i got the info to a girl that was also there and heard everything and is willing to testify. when my boyfriend went to court he case was rejected. about a month ago they refiled charges they are trying to charge my boyfriend with assault on a police officer evading and some other charges and they have 10 counts of identity theft i dont understand how they can do this i understand they are cops and can pretty much do as they please but honestly i didnt have anything to do with this. when my boyfriend went to court he told his pd that he would take the deal that they offered him if they would drop charges on me since i didnt have anything to do with it and they said no so i dont know what to do i am freaking out i cant afford to go to jail i have 5 kids and literally die if i go to jail.
