Should I retain my lawyer? What steps should be taken to correct the situation below?
I was arrested for a DUI and retained a private lawyer. I attended the initial court date @ 2nd court the Judge allowed a continuance based on finalizing a plea agreement with the prosecutor but it wasn't finalized yet. At So judge set the next court date, @ that moment I told my lawyer I couldn't be present that day because my wife's final interview with immigration was the same morning, he said not to worry and because we should have a plea agreement and it was fine. Outside the courtroom i explained I couldn't make the court date again, he said he could be there in my absence to explain we were going to change the plea and it would be fine. I returned from our trip and found that my friends bail had been forfeited and a bench warrant is issued for me bc my lawyer didn't go...

I missed a felony dui court date back in December 2008.
Sometime back in 2008, I appeared in court for a felony dui and the Judge dismissed the case with-out prejudice. I was parked, inside of a bar drinking alcohol and the bar tender held on to my car keys but 2 officers showed up and gave me a field sobriety test. the officers purported that I was drinking and driving earlier...which was a complete lie. They did not know that I overheard the bar tender call them. I was planning to drive off but he wouldn't hand over the keys so I pissed him off and he called the cops. I was not aware that the court brought this matter back due to I was off island and that the police served one of my family members who forgot to inform me about it. It has been a little over 5 years now. What can I do? I can't afford or prove my innocents.
Consult with a criminal defense attorney to resolve the warrant and begin the defense of your case. If there isn't a...
What is the statue of limitations for felony dui?
The Judge dismiss the felony dui case with-out prejudice back in October, 2008 and I heard thru a friend that the Prosecuter brought it back in December of 2008. I did not appear in court for the initial due to off island at the time and i'm just wandering if there's a statue of limitations for this?
The statute of limitations for a felony dui is generally three years but it probably does not apply in your situation....
My boarder refuses to move out even after an eviction notice, keeps bringing home drunk people
I recently bought a home and am renting a room in the house where I also live. My boarder has been bringing home very drunk men, being loud at all hours, damaging property, serving minors alcohol and making false police reports on me (luckily, the police never believe her as she is always drunk). I wrote her an eviction notice of 10 days citing: Hawaii Tenancy Law Term of Rental Agreements - Section 22. “. In the absence of a written agreement, the tenancy shall be month to month or, in the case of boarders, week to week.” She however is refusing to move out, saying she wants to stay as long as she can to make me miserable. I feel unsafe and would like any advise on what I can do.
You should make sure that you can show you delivered the 10 day notice required under Hawaii Revised Statutes section...
What happens if the probable cause citation is dismissed by a judge which led to an arrest for a higher charge?
I was arrested for a DUI when officers pulled me over for failing to make a left hand turn. I mitigated the failing to signal ticket and a judge dismissed it. Would this affect the DUI arrest in court, meaning could I fight the charges since the judge dismissed the reason for their probable cause to pull me over?
While it could bode well for you, the dismissal of a civil traffic infraction usually doesn't really mean anything...
