Are all infractions supposed to be treated equally in our court system? My cousin failed to appear for DUI court & no warrant:
I was scheduled to be in court on 8/5/13 at 10AM. My grandma was my ride to court & she'd had a stroke just before. I called the Marshall County State's Attorney to let them know I would be unable to attend court & was told it would be alright if payments on my fines were made and that the date would be rescheduled. My arrangement was $20 per month & $60 was paid on 7/10/13 - I thought I was covered. I had a probation appointment on 10/2/13 in the Marshall County Courthouse building & had seen on my file on judici.com that there was a review that same day. I asked my probation officer if I should be in the courtroom & was told no. I had my next probation appointment on 11/4/13 at which time I was arrested & discovered a warrant was issued on 10/2/13.

My misdemeanor DUI was raised to a felony because of a class 2 felony in 8 years earlier, not a DUI.
i was passed out in my car with keys in ignition, in front of my house. The car was not running and i was charged with r dui. That was later raised to a felony. 17 months later The charged was reduced back to a misdemeanor because of, what i was told, by the States Attorney the case was to old for the charge. They had changed the class-2 from 2007 to a burglary from 1978. But their still treating it like a felony, with felony probation. My lawyer sucked.
