  1. I have misdemeanor warrants in the state of Pennsylvania, can I get a Tennessee license?

    No. The warrants have most certainly suspended your Pennsylvania license. You go to Tennessee MVA and fill out the forms including the box that asks if you have a suspended license in any jurisdiction and you say NO. Now you have committed fraud on a government document. Next, they run you, see the suspension, the warrant and the fraud and you are arrested on the spot at the MVA. The MVA employs police for this very reason. You are also given new charges for false statements. NO.

    I am sorry but I would destroy you on the stand. What are you asking? If you should put your ex-boyfriend away for life? Here you are on the stand, "I got really drunk". Did he force you to drink? Did someone pour the alcohol down your throat? Do you know your limitations? You don't remember? When you drink do you get excited and lovey-- dovey or do you want to be alone? Have you ever had sex with your ex-boyfriend before when you were drunk? Do you know if you said no to him? Did you...

    The other Attorneys have suggested what you need to do. I will tell you what you did wrong and what you are confused about. First of all, witnesses who are at the scene of the accident get to testify to what they saw and heard you say. That is not Hearsay. Secondly, when you are in an accident, you do not get to make an offer and leave if they don't like it. They are going to use that offer against you as an admission of fault---why else would you offer to pay? Everyone in the car heard...

    It doesn't look like you need an attorney. Your boyfriend went to jail and his bond was released. He paid bond to make sure he would show up for every hearing throughout sentencing. Paying bond allowed him to remain in the community instead of in jail. He showed up, he got sentenced and went to jail. The bond did its job so it gets released. If a bond person paid the full bond, you get nothing back because you paid them to post the full amount. If you paid the full amount, or ten...

    I really don't think starting something with your neighbor for walking behind your car while you are backing up is the way to go. I would make sure that you have notice that you are conducting surveillance and when you have evidence that a real crime is taking place---- and you have irrefutable evidence of the same, deal with it then. A report for walking behind your car and maybe walking on your driveway is petty. Allegations of vandalism with no proof doesn't fly and there is no nexus to...

    Having been a Child Protective Service Investigator In Prince George's County for seven years I know how much you drive and what your salary is. Having said that, you have answered your own question--you "realize 9 points is a hefty amount to accumulate in such a short period" and "If I cannot drive then I cannot work". You need to be aware that notices go out at three points, you have nine. You have a lot to work with but this is very important and, therefore, you need someone who does this...

    These are extremely serious charges and all Maryland State's attorney Offices treat domestic violence like potential murder cases to begin with. You probably already made statements and perhaps he did too. Anything either one of you have already done is locked in to hurt you. If you were treated by a doctor all of that is recorded and anything you said to each person there is recorded. You were probably interviewed by the Detectives in your drunken state and made statements against your...

    No one wants to put in writing that a subpoena in the mail is not good service. Read the rule. It is supposed to be personal service. You will not be held in contempt because no one knows if you were served, or not, due to the fact that you were not personally served. If it were put in your hand by the Sheriff (that is how we do it in Montgomery County) you must appear or you could be picked up and held in contempt; and it does happen. If it was mailed the State will ask for and receive a...

    Your daughter cannot get a sentence of 1 year and 6 months without returning to court on a Hearing to Show Cause whether or not she Violated Probation. At that hearing she would be given the opportunity to have a Public Defender or hire Counsel to defend the allegations. If she were guilty she could mitigate the reasons why the reimposition of the full back-up time is not necessary. Since that did not occur, I believe my learned friend Ed Tidings has addressed what occurred above.

    Unfortunately, I have to disagree with my brother of the bar's advice. In Montgomery County talking to the police NEVER helps, it only hurts. If you say you were there, the statement of charges will say, "HE admits to being at the scene where the crime occured." If you say you saw the irate man, "He admits the man was irate". Why would he be irate if you didn't do anything? The guy took your plate and the cop is investigating. He will be at your home to see if there is paint on any part of...
