If I'm on conditional discharge for driving on suspended and haven't compleated some things what are the most likley result
I was put on 18 months conditional discharge with fines and community service but I have 16 months to complete community service and no set monthly pay or appear. I have not gotten any service hours done and haven't made a payment on fines yet due to recently finding employment. I checked judici and I had a court date labeled "pay or appear" in October and didn't go but no warrant has been posted. I have a court date labeled "compliance hearing" in about a week. I'm only 5 months into my conditional discharge also. I'd like to know what to expect at my compliance hearing
There is almost certainly a warrant. They don't post them online. Lawyer up ASAP
Did the police have the right to come onto my property and question/arrest me when I was never actually seen driving by a cop?
So I was on way home at about 9am after a night of fun, and I decided to sit in my driveway and have a cigarette before I went inside.

They split my DUI into a DUI and drug case if I plead Guilty to the DUI would the drug case case be dropped? ?
Since I got pulled over and I was DUI on pills and they found my pills and charged me separately that should be one charge.
DUI and possession are two separate charges. Pleading guilty to one won't result in the other being dismissed unless...
