Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney Gregory Caplan explained that earlier this year, I noticed an increase in clients seeking immediate help to clear old bench warrants, such as traffic tickets and low-level misdemeanor warrants. Although a case may be 10 to 20 years old, the bench warrant will appear on most pre-employment criminal background checks because it is still active in the police warrant system. Many employers will revoke a job offer upon discovery of an active bench warrant in a background check.

Criminal Defense Attorney Gregory Caplan further noted that my clients needed help to quickly have the warrants quashed and recalled so that they could be considered for prospective employment. And they were rightfully concerned about walking into court without an attorney, to attempt to resolve a warrant on their own, not understanding the courtroom procedures, and potential repercussions.

Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney Gregory Caplan found a way to help these job seekers resolve their cases. He promptly brings the warrant cases into court and emphasizes the importance of clearing them out of the system. I find that most judges and prosecutors are open to resolving these cases, giving my clients opportunities to obtain gainful employment in this challenging job market.

Once a warrant is resolved, Caplan begins the next step of the process by preparing a motion to expunge the criminal charges. Expungement is a legal process through which an arrest and conviction may be cleared from a person’s criminal record. While in many cases, a judge has discretion whether or not to grant an expungement request, Mr. Caplans strategy is to emphasize his clients positive characteristics and meaningful efforts to regain good standing in the community, providing a valid basis for a judge to expunge the record. Once an expungement is granted, in most cases, a California job applicant can truthfully answer No as to the expunged conviction when asked, Have you ever been convicted of a crime? Further, California law prohibits most employers from asking about expunged convictions in the hiring process.

In a recent Los Angeles Superior Court case, Mr. Caplan persuaded a judge to terminate a probation order two years early, and then grant an immediate expungement. This allowed the client to immediately be considered for meaningful employment. In other similar cases, Los Angeles Criminal Defense Lawyer Gregory Caplan quickly responded to clients requests to resolve Los Angeles Bench Warrants; he was able to clear two cases where the clients serious charges were dismissed, and the charges were resolved for minor, infraction-level violations, which the clients did not have to disclose on job applications asking about misdemeanor and felony convictions.

In many instances, Mr. Caplan has seen that his clients, who had been concerned about returning to court because of potential repercussions from the warrants, were pleasantly surprised with the efficient and effective outcomes he was able to achieve. While no attorney can guarantee the outcome of a criminal case, Los Angeles Criminal Attorney Gregory Caplan substantially prepares his clients cases for court, and provides experience and professional guidance along the way, to help resolve these charges. People seeking to resolve bench warrants, expunge criminal records, or determine their employment rights, should seek legal counsel from a local attorney.

Santa Clarita, California (PRWEB) August 21, 2008

Class 3 Entertainment has acquired the life-rights to the true story of Rolando Rodriguez, an Illinois man who went underground for twenty years to protect his young son. When Hal and Cheryl Croasmun, the producers of Class 3 Entertainment, first heard the story, now marked for upcoming film or television development, they recognized something special.

“I can’t imagine what it would be like for a college-educated father to pose as a minimum-wage earning illegal immigrant just to keep his son safe,” says Hal Croasmun. “And the son, nineteen out of his twenty-year life was spent as a fugitive. That’s intense. But even more intense is how this all began.”

Its beginning was a child custody case that led to a murder and ultimately to Rolando and his son becoming fugitives.

According to Rolando’s attorney, Tim Mahoney, on June 8, 1987, he should have died. “A bullet meant for me killed my law partner instantly. It was a terrible tragedy,” comments Mahoney. “One day, I’m laughing with my best friend, and the next, I’m a suspect in his murder.”

Rolando recalls his worry, “When my attorney’s partner was murdered, I knew who did it and I knew that I was next.”????Rolando and his son were on a plane that night. Naturally, that meant that Rolando missed the upcoming custody hearing and lost custody of his son. A few days after that, a warrant for kidnapping was issued for Rolando’s arrest (stemming from Illinois divorce case 86 DKA 733).

Eighteen months after the shooting, Rolando’s ex-wife testified against the shooter, Bill Nally — the man who was convicted for killing Tim Mahoney’s partner (People of the State of Illinois v. William Nally 88 CF 1371). But according to her own testimony, she brought Nally to the attorneys office and provided escape after the shooting — all in an attempt to scare Rolando into giving her custody of their child.

Even though the murder had been solved, the kidnapping warrant was still in effect.

“This man sacrificed his whole life to protect his son,” said producer Cheryl Croasmun. “While on the run, he fell in love, got married, had two daughters, and managed to keep the entire family under the radar for 20 years. Talk about family secrets!” (How does someone hide that long with a family of five?)

After two decades, the kidnapping warrant was finally quashed. Rolando and his family are making adjustments to return to normal life.

Hal and Cheryl Croasmun of Class 3 Entertainment, own the life rights to the project. Development partners are invited to contact the producers. Additional info can be found at Rodriguez case info.
