Will a negative UA test affect probation?
I was pulled over for DUI. I am pleading not guilty with nonadjudication, therefore must complete certain requirements to have the DUI stay off my record. Upon arrest, I had bond stating I would show up to court in July. My lawyer called and set my court date for November. From him setting a court date, does that mean I am (or was) off bond now? Some requirements of getting the DUI removed is having an interlock system put into my car and seeing a probation officer once a month. Should I expect to be tested upon my first meeting with my probation officer? If I smoked THC prior to my court date will I be held accountable for that?
To answer your questions in here, no a negative UA will not jeopardize your probation, you are supposed to have...
Are $672 and $683 normal fines for a first offense Fake ID and MIP, respectively.
I was stopped by 4 ABC officers in a parking lot because they saw me with a beer. One of the officers then asked for my ID so I took out my phone and looked in my phone case where I keep all of my cards. I then realized that the only valid identification I had was my student ID, so I told the officer I did not have my license on me and handed him my student ID. He then shined his flashlight on my phone and told me he could see the edge of my fake ID and told me to hand it to him, so I did. He then began to pat me down and took me over to their vehicle to write my citations. As these are my first charges, I'm wondering if these are normal fines as they seem a little much, and also the chances of having the fake ID remanded to my file.
The fines a court is allowed to asses depends on the individual state statutes or city ordinance involved. Often there...
