My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist you in your legal question today. Let me ask you, however, were you on any time of supervised release or probation for the federal matter at the time you picked up the criminal case on that state level? If so, that may be a filing for a revocation of probation. Do you happen to know what the exact filing on PACER was?

Hello, it is me again. I may be able to search PACER for the exact pleading filed. However, the system will not allow me to accept your phone call request. If you can make another phone request, I can accept it, obtain your information over the phone, and search PACER for the pleading as I have a PACER account.
