At what point is it safe to assume it's not going to show up?
I was convicted of a dui in MD three months ago however there is no record of it on my va license or driving record.

Should I be worried and can I still receive a summons for possession of marijuana?
Can i be charged with possesion after the fact? Here is the deal. It was me and 4 people who go to my school and I was parked at a 711. All of a sudden the cops pull up and they pull up to the passenger side window and ask him to roll it down. Long story short they detain the 4 of us. Last guy is still in 711 when the cops pull up. They ask if they can search the car and the passenger says feel free. I have nothing to hide either. They find a bottle in the backseat of the vehicle with some marijuana in it and instantly question the passenger In the back. He gets charged with possesion of marijuana. The officer let the rest of us go and uncuffed us while he got the other guys court date. I was the driver and it was my vehicle but I had no knowledge he had drugs on him and I know now I shouldn't let people in my car. My question is if he blames it on me or Claims it is not his will I be summoned to court? Or will the case be over and done with? Should I hire a lawyer? I really don't want to get busted. The cops let us go and did not issue us anything but they did take down all our info and the guy who had the weed was issued a summon for possesion
The code says specifically that owning the car is not evidence that you possessed the drugs. I never saw police go...
I caught a Dui in April of 2014, I completed asap classes and 5 of the 6 months of the breathalyzer in my vehicle.
I had to salvage my vehicle so I couldn't complete my last month with breathalyzer. So fast forward to February 2015, I went and paid a reinstatement fee to get license back. The dmv did reissue me license. So in July 2016 I got in a domestic dispute and had to call the police, they got my report and then told me that my license was still suspended and took my license. So I call the asap office to find out what's going on. They tell me I had to complete the breathalyzer another 6 months. My question is ain't there something I can do about this, because if the dmv knew my license was still suspended they shouldn't even took my money and gave my license back, and also my car was salvaged I don't think it's fair I have to do the breathalyzer all over again. I think it's all about getting hard working citizens out of their money. What can I do.
The short answer is that I certainly feel your pain, and the DMV should have caught this, yes, but you will have to...
If I got a drunk in public in Virginia, and I had to spend 8 hours in jail, but they never gave me a breath test, can i fight it
I received a drunk in public one night in Hampton, Virginia, while fighting with my wife in the street. I know I smelled like alcohol, but that could have meant I only had one beer, and they refused to give me a breath test and I had to spend 8 hours in jail before being released. My court date is tomorrow, I'm assuming for a lawyer, and I was wondering if I even have a case, or if I just don't show up because I don't have a fighting chance and will be wasting my time, will I get a failure to appear or will they just find me guilty in my absence?
Anytime you face criminal charges you should consider hiring an attorney. Given the facts surrounding your case it...
