I received a status hearing letter from judge sent out on second year anniversary for my 2nd dwi arrest?
The only thing that has happened with the case, is that I was granted my occupational license, ( I refused to blow, therefore suspension on license). I have a blower on my vehicle as a bond condition. I received a letter from judge dated on the anniversary of my arrest, stating a Status Hearing was set for 2 weeks away. Is it possible that they can still charge or sentence me? I thought there was a statute of limitations?
