What are my chances of jail time for careless driving in New Mexico?
I was driving at night in new mexico and almost missed getting onto my exit ramp. I made the exit and continued to brake, but suddenly my tires skidded and i jerked the wheel a bit too far. My car was fighting me and i tried to straighten it out. It flipped once and the ambulance came to get me. I got a citation for careless driving, and i have to appear in court in front of a judge. What are my chances of fighting this or is it likely I'm going to jail? I am also fromout of state.
Jail is not very likely. You mostly should be concerned about the insurance rates going up. Careless driving puts a lot...

Can I get legal help from a legal aid in New Mexico to help me with warrants I have in arizona?
I have 2warrants from Arizona. One for not going to a driving class and paying my fine because I was homeless, jobless and had to move to New Mexico to get a roof over my head. I also have a warrant from Arizona because I wad evicted from my apartment, my sons were abusing me and I had to leave the state. I spent 24 hours in jail, went to court and the charges were dropped. The charges were reopened once I was in New Mexico and I have no money to go to Arizona to go to court. My license is suspended and I have warrants. What should I do?
Whatever the reasons you did not take care of court matters, you will not get a valid license until you take care of...

What can we expect from the arraignment?
My son was arrested last night for drag racing, speeding and aggravated fleeing. He is currently waiting for arraignment. What can we expect for bond? He's 23 and this is the first time he's been arrested. The officer told him he didn't pull over fast enough and that's why he was charged with fleeing. He has to drive as part of his job so I'm praying that his license isn't revoked or suspended. Also, his car was impounded and since it was just purchased a week ago, we can't get it out until the registration from the dealer arrives.
