I have an unpaid probation fine from 14 years ago in NC for DUI. It was a misdemeanor. Would I have a warrant for my arrest now?
I got a DUI in NC 14 years ago. I was put on probation and later moved back home to VA. I never paid my fines. I was a kid then, but it still worry about it. If I was to get pulled over in NC now would I go to jail?

I was recently charged with a drunk in public at my local college. I was told it is a class 4 misdemeanor and that if I pay the fine, it will appear on my record similar to how a speeding ticket would. However, I am actually underage (was not charged with underage possession) and was wondering if it is worth it to go to court and try and get my case dismissed? If I do go to court, though, is there a possibility I can get charged with the underage possession as well, even if I did not originally acquire it? Also, is there any way this can be removed from my record before I apply to jobs (I am currently 19 and will be graduating when I am 22)?
Criminal convictions cannot be removed from your record in Virginia. Therefore, if having a criminal conviction will be...
Arrested for a drunk in public. No other charges associated with it. I was guilty.
Is there any chance I can go to court (Fredericksburg, VA) and get it dismissed or mitigated to something less by offering community services hours or something else? I have had no prior arrests for alcohol-related events.
Every jurisdiction is different but in Rockingham County you cannot get this charge dismissed absent some sort of legal...
How can I know, if I feel that my Civil Rights have been violated during the process of being tested for a DUI??
Recently, I was charged with a DUI in the State of Virginia, in the County of Patrick, on an August afternoon of this year. After I had two sobriety tests, in which the Deputy was asked by me, in front of another assisting Deputy, which one of the sobriety tests I failed, was answered that I failed the third one. He only gave me two. I was then arrested. After my arrest, the deputy drives me to the hospital instead of the jailhouse where I was given three consecutive Breathelyzer tests ( each one was a new tester ), because he did not have any accessible at the scene. Deputy commented that he could not get a reading and said that I registered 0.09 on one of them. Even after all of that testing, I submitted to a Blood Test. I want to plead Not guilty because I am a Caregiver who was en route to a Dying Client, the car I was driving is a New Used Car that I was not used to driving, and in good conscience know that I was not impaired to operate a Vehicle. I also feel that the deputy was unprofessional and too casual when he began to question me about people I know and insulted them out loud in my presence with allegations that I knew not of. Are these procedures legal and okay?
Which of your civil rights do you feel was violated?
Most of what you have described sounds like a routine DUI stop.
