Hello friend. My name is Ely, and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies.

I am sorry for your son's situation. Can you please tell me if he actually received a conviction for this matter, or not?

This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.

THE JUDGE SAID THIS ALL IN COURT IN IRELAND. MY SON LIVES IN IRELAND AND WANTS TO GO TO FLORIDA WHERE HE WILL HAVE A JOB

Expert:  Ely replied 4 years ago.
Martha,

I understand all this. However, someone who was charged with a criminal matter may either be found guilty or not. Being found guilty carries a conviction. Was he convicted? This is important.

Or, you are not sure?

I AM NOT SURE. I SUPPOSE THE BEST THING IS TO ASK HIS SOLICITOR THE EXACT OUTCOME. DO YOU AGREE?

Expert:  Ely replied 4 years ago.
I agree. Can you ask and get back to me?
