I got a PBJ in MD in 2008 for Disorderly Conduct (CR), Fleeing arrest (TRAF), and DUI (TRAF). Are any of these felonies?
I got thirteen citations and all but these above were "nolle prosequi". I just want to know if any of these above count as felonies? I can see all of my information on the Maryland Case Search site but they do not label whether they are felony or misdemeanors and I have to tell a new job what misdemeanors I have been convicted of. Thank you.
It is best if you consult with your attorney in MD to answer this question. In the alternative, you can contact the...
Can my DWI case be dismissed if the officer did not cite me for what he originally pulled me over for? (Texas)
I was originally pulled over for speeding and although I had a couple of beers a few hours before he arrested me for DWI. I was never given a citation for the speeding though. Is this grounds to dismiss my case?
Not at all. It is actually often that once an officer is going to make an arrest for a criminal offense that they don't...
Applied for a GOES/SENTRI pass for MX & was denied to due a prior DUI Misdemeanor in WI Can hiring a Lawyer help. thx
DUI is a misdemeanor in the State of WI and not a CRIMINAL offense.
You need to contact an attorney in Wisconsin. I don't know of anywhere that DUI/DWI is not a criminal offense.
So I'm on probation for a DWI and POM. If ive never been tested for alcohol, will they test me randomly at court?
Never been tested for alcohol once in this whole year. Split a bottle of wine with my Mom today and I'm a tad buzzed. But didnt think if they'd test me for alcohol(since they never have) until my grandpa started talking about it. Could the court test me for it? Even though it wasn't court ordered to do at the beginning? I have court tomorrow morning.
Yes they could test you . I would keep my mouth shut and get out of your appointment as fast as you can,
Probation Violation
I had a DUI in Hidalgo county and was given fines and 1 year probation. 1st offense. After about 5 months I was violated for failure to show. That was almost a year ago. I am going to turn myself in I just want to know what to expect? Or any advice? I'm currently not working, I am a student, and I have no prior record of anything before this.
Sounds like the risk is up to six months in the county jail and a fine not to exceed $2000.00, depending on what your...
In 2012 I was cited with my first DWI ever. In Dec. 11, 2013 I was given 12 month suspended sentence. In Feb. 21, 2014 I was
falsely accused of assault. Point being that I immediately notified my PO who decided to wait until Nov. 2014 to file MTR in county where I was given probation (1 month prior to end of probation) because I have ye to go to trial on false charges. MTR was timely filed but no capias was ever issued, I was simply sent a letter to attend MTR hearing. Today was my final hearing and judge extended my probation by 6 months. I asked my court appointed attorney who happened to be an ex-ADA at this county about Article 42.12 Sec. 21(e) because capias was never issued. He simply told me that it was a given that any time probation is revoked a capias is issued but you get sent a letter instead. I spoke to the county clerk's office and they assure me capias was never issued. How can I prove this?
Do you have any idea what the capias is? It doesn't look like you do. It is a warrant for your arrest. Did you want...
