    I'll just stick with the initial question. 4th Amendment Issues are my favorite. Stopping somebody for driving 55 MPH is questionable. Beyond that, I'll have to know more, but I'd tend to agree with the other answers--- You need a Top Local DUI Attorney.

    This sounds like the case went to Virginia DMV before you had it modified by the Judge. You will need copies of everything that happened in Maryland and you should contact a Virginia attorney. I really don't think you should have a suspension if you are not going to be convicted in Maryland, but it won't be easy to get the DMV to reverse their position.

    I agree with the other attorneys. You should certainly consult counsel. Consult local counsel, directly and during business hours, and try not to post any details of your case on-line. Sorry to answer your on-line question by saying, "stay off-line" but that is the nature of the beast.

    I agree with Mr. Oblon, but I think your question is missing some key facts. If you have NO PRIOR CRIMINAL RECORD, then there is a strong presumption, but you don't exactly say that. You also don't say whether you have an attorney already. As it says in the statute, a petitioner is ENTITLED to an expungement for a dismissed misdemeanor and no prior criminal record, unless the commonwealth shows good cause to the contrary. (To the contrary of What? The law doesn't say!). This...

    Dmv will suspend for a second conviction. Sounds like you probably had one earlier and it was suspended by dmv. Not the court. Young drivers don't get as much slack.

    Your roommate should seek legal advice if he/she wants to assert his/her constitutional rights under the 4th amendment. You should stay off of the internet and only talk to your own attorney by phone or in person. Just take some time off from the computer.

    These questions certainly do seem unfair. They certainly can become an obstacle, as they will obviously be used to sort out students in a very competitive process. You might retain counsel to specifically inquire of the admissions folks as to how they want these things answered. An attorney may be able to get an answer without revealing "who is asking". Many types of things are important to disclose, because "they already know". This would include almost anything that the high school...

    If this is a Fairfax County case, I would always recommend taking a safe driving class prior to Court. Moveover, I would suggest hiring an attorney if you want to keep it off of your record. There are a few ways to do that, but only an experienced local attorney would be able to do it. Of course, the facts of the case will be a big factor in determining whether anything can be done, so contact a local attorney and discuss this.

    Yes, in theory, it could be the subject of a Pardon, but those are not routinely granted after a finding of guilt. You should consult an attorney who handles pardons. You can always file an application but you may get an opinion that it is likely to be a waste of resources.

    The old saying is "15 will get you 20". Do you know that one? There must be some nice college girls around. You live at the Beach!! Try not to post online about what you have done in the past, especially if you think it might be illegal.
