I am a Registered Nurse, 10 years, working in the NICU, and need to know what my options are after being charged with theft.
I worked at a hospital for 8 years, with no medication errors or incidents. A neonatal dose of medicine was supposedly missing from a medication dispensing machine during a 3 month overdue audit by a Pharmacy tech. I was approached regarding the discrepancy and stated I did not recall removing said med. I was innocent. The hospital's protocol when a med is missing is not how I was treated. I was ultimately terminated. I was never accused of using the med and offered to take a drug screen 3 times. They simply stated it was missing. Initially, I was denied unemployment, but was reversed after a hearing stating I was terminated without just cause. This same year, it was license renewal. I went before the Board of Nursing and was issued my license "free and clear". I was not aware the police were contacted, but 6 months after, I received a Notice to Appear. 18 months later, 7 depositions all in my favor, and determined to maintain my career, I was coerced into signing a plea 2 days before trial. In hindsight, my attorney made it sound appealing. I received 1 year unsupervised probation with a charge of theft. I have been unable to find a job. Can I ask for expungement after 1 yr?
Before taking a plea, you attorney would have explained your options. No one denies you the right to a trial. If your...

Will a 10 year old DUI conviction affect sentencing for a current DUI case?
My partner is being charged with a Class A misdemeanor for operating with a BAC above .15%. He has a past DUI conviction from over 10 years ago. I understand because the conviction is so old it cannot enhance the sentence, but is this something that would mean he is likely to face the steeper end of 1st time offense penalties? Can a judge consider an offense so far back when sentencing?
Yes. Prior criminal history is one of the most important factors a judge considers in sentencing. This is especially...
