My DUI was dismissed; can the DA re-file charges in the future?
In July of 2013 I rear-ended a car at a stoplight and was charged with failure to reduce speed and a DUI (this is in North Carolina.) After two years of this being continued by the state, due to cops not showing up and blood results not being back yet, the DA dismissed the DUI and I pled guilty to the accident. I started thinking though; when my blood results do finally come back from could the DA re-file the charge? Also, how would I go about getting the charge expunged from my record? Would I need to hire a lawyer again?

DUI and visa revocation
I got DUI last year and after 2 days i recieved an email from consulate sating that your visa has been revoked and you may not be elgible for the visa and send me the link to reapply . My case is still pending not convicted yet . My I 94 is valid till sep this year but when i checked my arrival departure history it shows exit on the date when i recieved the email from-consulate for revocation. Questions 1. Any problem in visa extension which is due this year and what if i get convicted during extension. Should i continue fighting the case till i got my extension. 2. As my visa is revoked so do i have to travel to india before september for stamping irrespective of my extension . 3. Should i tell my employer . 4. It is for sure that visa revocation and DUI will lead to RFE.
