My question involves criminal law for the state of: Michigan
Long story short I was at a point in my life a couple years ago that I simply had no concern for myself and honestly didn't care about anything while eatting hand fulls of pills daily.
Stole from Wal-Mart 3 times and was on probation. Had classes 2 times a week & fines. Instead of being responsible I simply moved 1200 miles away.
I need to make it right, there was a bench and arrest and search warrant issued after of the residence I lived at. They learned that I left. For some reason I was able to find my criminal background before and now it's just gone. My name doesn't show in a data base etc.
I am getting ready to attend college for a degree in substance use and abuse and social work to hopefully help a mis guided person like I was. But I need to fix this.
Even though it's not showing up I know it's there but I really can't afford a lawyer or a trip all the way back to simply turn myself in and do the time.
What should I do? I called the county but they won't release any info via phone. I would imagine since its all petty they would want me to pay my dues via fines if I'm not sitting in jail to close the case.
My public defender wanted to take it to trial for temp insanity as my doc had me on, clonazepam, depakote, Serequil, something else and clonazepam. All high doses. Aka careless and wreckless but nobody held a gun to my head I agreed to continue taking the meds. I just had to get away.
Now that my heads on straight, I work with a great drug free psychiatric. I don't know where to start to get this done and over with. Also don't know why my criminal record was once there and has seemed to vanish. I can't start school until I fix it so it doesn't effect future employment.
