    Hey there neuman,

    Just to let you know, you've come onto an advice site here for 16-25 year olds in the UK and unfortunately we're not able to offer legal advice.

    I'm sorry to hear it sounds like you spent time in jail unnecessarily and you could certainly do with some advice. If you're based in the UK then we'd suggest speaking to the CAB as a first port of call, you can find your local bureau here: http://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/index/getadvice.htm

    You can also use out Local Advice Finder to find other legal advice services near you: http://www.thesite.org/community/localadvicefinder Just enter your postcode and select Legal & Rights from the drop down menu :thumb:
