Hello, Will a DUI from June 2006 show up on FBI fingerprint check done this month?
I have an RN license in my current state and am applying for license by endorsement. I have never said yes to conviction question, and have not had a problem. Should I be concerned now? I automatically said no, not even thinking, and it is taking much longer then usual, I am starting to wonder if I should have said yes....I did not even think about it until now quite honestly.

Minor accused of rape while both parties were intoxicated
I have a friend (17 years old) who had sex with a woman around his age while they were both drunk at a party. Unfortunately, the young woman was more intoxicated than my friend realized. She blacked out and doesn't remember consenting to the act. Meanwhile, my friend is adamant he did not rape her or take advantage of her. She has taken the matter to the university they both attend and my friend has had to meet with school officials and give them his recollection of the night in question. It has not yet been taken to the police, but the university intends to hold a hearing and he faces up to a year suspension from school. How should he proceed? Also, the only other relative he has is his older brother. There is some concern that if this escalates, his brother could be seen as his guardian and be held responsible as well. Is that a possibility?

How do I get my car back after an Immediate Roadside Prohibition in Canada, as a citizen of Washington state?
BC, Canada, police say I blew too high in an alcohol BAL device. They then towed my car and physically grabbed my license. I want to appeal but am unsure what to do. How do I get my car back? Washington state already issued me a new license. But I don't want to pay outrageous fees and install a breathalyzer in my car since I don't agree the punishment was deserved. Do I just show up at the tow yard 30 days later asking for my vehicle? Thanks in advance!

I got a review notice for a case from 9 months ago after several months of no contact from the courts.
I was arrested for a DUI in March 2014, and it was reduced to a reckless driving charge in October 2014. I had to do the following to be in compliance, all of which I've done: 1) Pay off (OPD) lawyer fees. 2) 3 days work crew in lieu of jail time. 3) 6 days work crew in lieu of fines. 4) Enroll in/complete alcohol education & attend a DUI victims panel. 5) Not drive with a .08 etc. 6) Not incur any criminal violations. I've not heard from the court since I paid off the last of my lawyer fees, which were on a year cycle starting last April, so it's been four months or so. I've not gotten a single piece of mail indicating I'm not in compliance, and I've not broken the law. Is there any reason this simply would be routine, or is it likely they think I'm noncompliant for some reason?
