    Default How to Reduce a Conviction Charge to Qualify for Expungement

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Ohio
    9years ago I got a hit/skip traffic ticket when i hit someones mirror without knowing it, in Cleveland Heights ohio. I went to traffic court plead no contest paid court cost and fines. Now in 2008 I got a theft misdemeanor in columbus and I wanted to get it expunged the prosecutor used the hit skip and said it was a criminal offense therefore the misdemeanor was not my first charge. My public defender suggested I drop the expungement and try to get the ticket in cleveland heights argued down because of lack of representation of attorney and because of the type of charge. I cannot not get a job with this on my record and I can not pay an attorney for assistance. What can I do?

    Default Re: Expungment

    Property-damage-only hit and run is a misdemeanor, then you're not eligible for with multiple criminal convictions. I don't know what "public defender" you're currently talking to but it would seem unlikly that you're going to get a nine year old guilty plea dismissed whether you were represented or not.
    If there's any hope at magic on this, it will take a lawyer that you have to pay for.
