My question involves criminal law for the state of: Ohio
In 2008, at the tender age of 18, i caught a Domestic Violence charge and was arrested. After doing 2 days (Hard Time), i paid my bond and was released. Upon returning to court, i pled guilty to an amended Disorderly Conduct and was sentenced to 30 days in Jail, 2 of which I already had done, and 28 of which was strung above me. I also recieved 2 years probation.
After a rather quick 3 months, i screwed up and my P.O. scheduled a Revocation Hearing. Unfortunately, I wasnt able to make it. Now, its 2015 and I still live in the same house, except its my house now, and Ive since gotten married and have a beautiful 2 year old Son.
I made a pretty big mistake here. I cant get a drivers license, and this kind of thing will show up in a background check for a job when I graduate College. My question is, how should i go about fixing this? I DO NOT want to go back to jail for any reason whatsoever. I havent been in any trouble since, and it should also be noted that the person the Domestic Violence is against is long dead, (Drug Addict) and I have Hemophilia A Severe and my Meds cost about 8-12 thousand a week. (Yeowch)
Recently, Ive been considering Obtaining a Lawyer and trying to get it dismissed or something? I dont know exactly what course to take and what I should expect. Any Takers wanna give me a little smidgen of advice? Please and Thanks.
