I was charge with a dui. Can I try to get it off my record even though i have not gone to court yet?
No, you cannot clear your record until your case is completed. If you are convicted, then you would have to wait until you complete your probation. However, if you are not convicted, then you have to wait until the prosecutor's office drops charges or decides not to file. You can also attempt to terminate your probation early so that you can clear your case sooner. You can easily determine if your case is eligible for expungement or some other type or relief by taking our online eligibility test.
I can not believe that I am convicted of grand theft on person for breaking my fiancee's cell phone that I bought her; I did not steal it I broke it because she took mine and had it all weekend and besides that her phone cost less than $100. They also imposed a restraining order on me and she just had my baby and was living at my house with me even after I went to jail she stayed at my house until she had the baby then she went to stay with her mom. Now her Mom is dying and I just want to take care of them and it's nearly impossible to get a job with that on my record. What I really want to do is join the military like my brother. He got killed in Afghanistan in 2009 he was a SF Green Beret and I'm not a thief but this trumped up charge sure makes me look like a real loser. Besides I thought that something had to be worth $500 or $5000 before it could be considered grand theft? Can you help me please?

The answer really varies by court. In most courts, one or two judges are assigned to handle expungement matters as part of their duties. So, there is a chance that the original sentencing judge could be the judge who makes the ruling on the expungement, but unless it is small county and court, it is highly unlikely.
