I had a DUI that resulted in a probation before judgment in Maryland. It has been 3 years since the end on my probation. Can I get it expunged, at least in the records potential employers would have access too?
As my colleagues have said, unfortunately, for the last ten years or so DUI/DWI PBJs are no expungable.See question
My Probation expired on April 5, 2015. In February 2015 I got charged with Failure to send child to school, which I still haven't been to court for. My PO didn't file the VOP report against me until April 15, 2015, after the probation had expired....
Unfortunately it is valid. Probation has 30 days from the end of probationary period to file.See question

You can, but do you know how? The prosecutor is a lawyer and has been trained to try cases. If you haven't discussed your case with a lawyer, or just have concluded you ca not afford a private attorney, apply to the public defenders office. You apply not less than ten business days, not calendar days before court.See question
My girlfriend has a violation of probation from over 3 years ago and is scared to appear in court that she may go back to jail for it. I am looking into options for her, and I have told her she needs to go back, but want to get a lawyer for her fi...
Being found in violation of probation is indeed serious. But not going to court is not going to make it better, it will only get worse. There is no "guarantee" of jail time, but failing to appear will make it much more likely because she will not be able to avoid the VOP forever. She needs to retain an attorney ASAP to represent her in this case. If she is unable to afford a private attorney she should apply to the office of the public defender. Don't wait until the day of court. Good luck.See question

You must certainly discuss this matter with your attorney. You have the right to have a prompt reply. As others have said you may have to consider a new attorney - if so seek out an attorney that concentrates. On. DWI/DUI.See question
I posted this yesterday but have more information. It was in 2002 for false statement. In court I remember pleading not guilty and the case was dropped. I a recent interview for the Sheriff Department I found out I have a nolo plea. I got a co...
Mr. Scherr is correct. I would also recommend getting a certified/true test copy of any and all papers the court my still have, even if it is only that page, and I agree that you should request a copy of any recording to the court proceeding.See question

You will receive a notice to appear in court. Since you live in Severn, I assume this was on Ft. Meade? If, so you will go to
Federal Magistrates court in Baltimore. You may qualify for a public defender as Mr. Oakley said, if not try to retain a private attorney. Cooperate with your attorney-jail is very very unlikely, but you don't want to be saddled with a theft conviction.

The Virginia court he appeared in may have set a time limit. Even not usually he will be brought to Maryland within a week to ten days. Can be longer, frequently shorter.
Once he is in Maryland he may be taken before a district court judge for a bail review; if it is a circuit court case he or his attorney may have to petition the court for a bail review.
Whether he is ultimately permitted to post bond and rereleased is up to the judge, who will consider a number of factors, including the seriousness of the alleged offense, his prior record if any, ties to the community, and others.See question
I live in Delaware but got busted in Maryland for a DUI. This was my first DUI. My MVA hearing is coming up. Can I get a restricted license so I can continue to work 2-3 times a week in Maryland? The cops never took my license because I'm assuming...
I agree with the analysis by both Attorneys Scherr and Oakley. I have seen the MVA here grant a modified restriction to permit limited driving in Maryland. However, as with so many things in life, the "devil is in the details". Whether or not there was a breath test, the result of that test, whether the result would potentially require installation of an ignition interlock, etc. You will need the assistance of competent attorney to evaluate those details and find a way through. It is not hopeless, but retain an attorney as soon as possible to protect your interests.See question

Yes, you can be charged. I would think the court may be skeptical about "permission". Lawyer up and don't post additional facts.See question
