DUI / PBJ in MD / US Citizenship / Q for Immigration lawyer
I got PBJ for a DUI in Maryland. The judge gave a 7 month probation without supervision which will expire in Dec 2015. I am eligible to apply for US Citizenship as of July 2015.

I completed all of the VASAP classes and fines and my 1 year court ordered probation ended 4 days ago.
I read about an Exit interview is required for ASAP but was never asked to come in at all during the 1 year probation, I have called and left several messages and never get a call back.....According to the court paper it said I am on probation for 1 year, My year of probation ended a few days ago..... Am I Free and clear now ?? I just do not want to have a beer and get called by ASAP for the exit interview and get tested and fail. - Have not had a beer for the entire year so not rushing out to get it, but wanted to know if I am free and clear now even without an exit interview from ASAP with my 1 year date has passed. -- Thank you for any help ! :)

Will pre-dated violations affect current unsupervised probation that I was just placed on last week?
I got a first offense non-aggressive DUI in West Virginia in January 2013 - I pleaded a conditional guilty charge because WV let me enter their First Offense DUI Deferral Program where I have to do a mandatory 165 days of interlock and ASAP classes. Upon completion of interlock (around September for me), they will dismiss the charges and then a year from that date, I can motion for my arrest record to be expunged. I got a reckless driving in VA in December 2014 and was convicted/placed on unsupervised probation by VA for the period of April 6, 2015 (my court date) - April 6, 2016. VA doesn't know of my DUI because I entered the deferral program. Therefore, am I at risk of violating my unsupervised probation? I am extremely nervous even though the date of my violation is January 2013
You are in no danger of violating Virginia's unsupervised probation because the DUI in West Virginia occurred before...
I was given two misdemeanor 1s for reckless driving and hit and run even though there are extenuating circumstances.
I was given two misdemeanor 1s for reckless driving and hit and run even though there are extenuating circumstances. My lawyer said at the first hearing that prosecuting attorney wanted jail time which scared the crap out of me. I can prove that I was undergoing a bad withdrawal from my Tramadol prescribed by VA as well as the car I hit had first tried to run me off the road. I have no criminal background or driving offenses. Can I really go to jail?
Yes. You can really go to jail. Your lawyer already told you that fact.
