Do I have to get interlock on all vehicles under my name, or just my main vehicle?
I have court February 23 for driving on a revoked DL. I have to get interlock to get my DL, but I have never complete my alcohol treatment that should have been done 3 years ago. Now my ASAP officer is violating me for non compliance which I have a hearing for on March 2nd. I will apply for a RDL on Friday, will I be able to beat the driving on revoked on February 23 with just a RDL? According to the DMV all I need is my interlock installed and I can get my actual DL. I have completed 75% of what I need to be in compliance with the DMV in the last 2 days.
You may be able to beat this if you hire a competent attorney. ASAP probation should be over by now. Was it a 3-...
As an illegal immigrant, what should I expect at my hearing for 6 tickets?
I got 6 tickets in one night, some being -driving without a drivers license, -driving under the influence, -driving with open alcohol in the car, -lying to the officer about my age, -underaged drinking and a few more. I am an immigrant, unfortunately I haven't been successful of getting my papers. I am 20 years old and have a court hearing to attend soon. What should I expect when I attend my hearing with 6 tickets? I am not sure if my citizenship will have anything to do with these charges but I want to be prepared. Can someone please tell me what kind of things I should expect as an immigrant?

I overstayed my visa for 3 months and got arrested for DUI 0.13 bond for 100 Then 2000 ice & waiting for my court day! Help! :(
I was arrested three days at the county jail because it happened on a weekend the officer that arrested told me a thousand times that he was sorry he asked the magister to right down that I behaved extremely well. Then at the ice they were really! Nice! They gave me a 2000 bond without the bracelet that by the way I asked them not to use it on me. I have a bf & we were supposed to get married we were not expecting this to happen we were watching possibilities because his house it's from his parents and needed to find out more about that. The immigration officer gave me his # he was so nice and told me that I might get a date for January or the end of the year. I'm so scare though! What are my chances??? Plz help!

Why am I receiving a letter from my ASAP probation officer if it's been almost 2 years since my conviction??
I recieved a 2nd DUI almost 2 years ago. I lost my Liscense for 3 years and I was ordered to do ASAP an additional counseling. I completed all the requirements and finished everything just fine. I have now recieved a letter from my ASAP probation officer stating that I have to come in for a monitoring meeting. Now if my probation was only a year then why am I being asked to go see her? Another problem is I revised a driving on revoked 3 weeks ago in a town about 3 hours from where i live. Can I be violated and I still on probation if I'm being called into her office?? Help I'm worried and scared as I thought I was only on probation for a year.
