Can I reschedule tomorrow's court date for fines owed on a DUI case?
I have already been charged with DUI 2nd offense last July. I was ordered to attend classes of which I have attended approximately 9 of my 36 that was ordered. I have already completed my 10 day in home incarceration that was ordered. I was not granted a hardship license so it has been a struggle with work. Trying to provide for my family & fines is difficult so I had to take a job traveling which has caused me delay with classes. I still owe a large amount however I'm now an hour away from court tomorrow with work... and my wife's truck is broke down. The company I work for submitted a letter explaining my schedule. I am just really scared I'm going to either go to court be charged with contempt and go to jail immediately. I'm so torn with what to do bc I truely am trying but also need to make sure my family has a roof over their heads as well.

I went fishing with some friends at a pond, the location had no "no trespassing" signs and the front gate was open, there is a abandoned house inside the gate, we were fishing and had a fish and wildlife officer ask to see are fishing license which I have him not knowing it was a couple weeks out of date, and then he said he was going to cite us for trespassing and I let him know we had no idea we were, and if we did we wouldn't have, we weren't hiding and my car was parked out front, the prosecutor said since we went right out and got a current fishing license he wwould drop that charge but the trespassing still stands, I truly didn't know I was trespassing.

Can my charges be dismissed or dropped? Will I have to go to court?
I got pulled over for failure to stop at a stop sign. I had absolutely no idea my lisence was suspended and got charged with operating a vechile on a suspended license. I was never notified that my license was suspended. I also got charged with not having the correct address on my license. I am a student at a university in state and I have an apartment I stay at on weekdays to go to classes. However, my permanent address is my home address. I am just wondering if there is any way my charges could be dropped? Less than 24 hours after being pulled over, I got my lisence reinstated, completed online traffic school and got my address changed on my license. Any advice on how to handle this would be great! Thank you.
Yes there is a way you should hire a local traffic ticket attorney and bring your certificate and address changed...
