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 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!).
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.
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.
You should certainly have an attorney for this type of case. The Courts will often give a few days in jail for speeds in the 90's. It will help if you really do have a clean record, but an attorney will be able to guide you with other steps in mitigation of this case.
No, that sounds like a permanent dismissal but there is a record of the traffic school dismissal, so you won't be able to get another one of those for a while. Also, you probably have Court costs to pay, and if you don't pay them, your license to drive in virginia will be suspended.
You will get the revocation for 3 convictions within 10 years, even if they are all called DUI 1st by the court. You can petition for a restricted license after 3 years if you complete probation and don't get caught drinking or driving for the whole time.
I'm not sure why counsel says that they won't have a right to appeal-- I think that is still there for 10 days, but maybe I'm missing something.
If this is a serious charge, then you should try to consult local counsel-- either tonight or early morning.
If you go to court for your friend, you can explain the situation and ask them to postpone it. That might work, but it might not. That would depend on the judge.
