Does the traffic ticket for a DUI that the officer issues with a date. Is that the date you actually go to court??
I ask this because my loved one has already been to court over the weekend with his 48hr jail visit for a 1st offense suspicion of dui/other. He went in in on Sunday and was released Tuesday after seeing judge. He had 2 other tickets that were already taking care of 1 was proof of insurance, Seat-belt. The court said they would send in the mail a court date. Why would they still give you these citations with a date and time at the bottom of the citation/ticket??
It sounds like this person will be facing prosecution in the Madison County JUSTICE COURT, located off of Highway 51 in...
Regarding a DUI what is the difference in non adjudicate and expunge?
3 yrs ago my daughter got a DUI. We hired an attn to get it off her record. She fulfilled all requirements but when she applied for a job it showed up. Attn blamed it on slow courts and now says it has been Expunged . But when I ask for Documentation he said there is none because it was expunged. I called justice court and was told it has been non adjudicated but not expunged. Is it off her record or not?
Talk to her attorney. If it has not been expunged, there was no non adjudication 3 years ago unless a minor in certain...

Also charged with No seatbelt and No insurance. The person does have insurance but didn't have the correct card in the the time. The deputy said Court is on Tomorrow and I am bringing the proof of insurance on his behalf. What will happen next since we couldn't pay cash bond for the 1,500.00 (Madison County MS) Will they let him make arrangements on this fine??
Call a bondsman and hire an attorney.
What questions should you ask an experience lawyer/ Attorney besides what he specializes in and how many cases has he won.??
I ask this because we have spoke to 3 and all of them seem very eager. My loved one has been extremely quiet about this, as it has been mentally draining , scary with all the things going on with the law and enforcement. For hard working tax paying citizen you feel that you were taking advantage of for much needed revenue for the state.. We are just taking this all in slowly.

I was arrested with dui other, failure to control my vehicle, and paraphinalia.
I went to the emergency room 4 hours after the accident to get a drug test because the police did not administer one. It came back negative for everything. The paraphinalia is the plastic wrapper off of a cigarette pack. The Dr said it was a seizure which runs strong in my family. I have an appointment with a neurologist now. What are my chances of beating this?
None of us can tell you what your chances are based on this little information. However, we can all agree that your...
In 2006 I received a nonajudicated dui sentence. However it is seen as guilty and is still on my record within the court. why?
I was sentenced to a non adjudication dui on 2006 for having a bac higher then .02 but lower than .08. However today I called the court where it happened and I was sentenced and they said it was not labeled as non adjudicated but rather guilty. I have the court abstract and it says sentenced to non adjudicated, however it says my plea is guilty and the judge found me guilty. This abstract is signed and has a raised seal. I was told that after I completed the necessary task it would be dismissed. I then called MDPS and they said in their records it is displayed as non adjudicated. My question is shouldn't this have be changed to dismissed and the conviction removed from my record? also this information was released to a state I moved to by the municipal court, not MS DPS. Any advice?
You need to contact a local attorney to review the sentencing documents. It may be necessary to hire an attorney to...

Sorry to hear about this. The best thing your loved one can do, besides hiring an experienced DUI attorney licensed in...
