    There are two issues: 1) the current case of Petit Larceny and 2) the Probation Violation (Show Cause) which will result if your are convicted of Petit Larceny. Note that you are under an obligation to report your current pending charge to your Probation Officer. Generally, this report will not lead to an immediate Show Cause as most POs will await the result of the pending charge prior to violating you. If you are convicted of the Petit Larceny in Arlington, expect a fine and perhaps...

    Your query input is cut off so I must assume that your question is based on the upcoming show cause hearing. Generally, the show cause hearings are fair - you will have the opportunity to present evidence of why the alleged facts against you are incorrect. More importantly, you will be presented with the opportunity to present evidence of how you have substantially complied with the probation requirements. The fact that you have enrolled into the INOVA IO program is a step in the right...

    The Interlock device is a commercial commodity. It is distributed by private vendors and is indeed expensive - installation is expensive and there are monthly fees involved. The answer to the question of whether Interlock can be installed prior to the issuance of a Restricted License is yes. If you look on the YouTube video linked below, you will get a list of vendors in Northern Virginia who would be glad to install the device. The answer to your next question of why the interlock is in...

  5. Got pulled over and summoned to court over a foreign driver's license. Does this qualify me for a Class 2 misdemeanor penalty?

    The fact that you were summoned to court indicates you were charged with an offense which in this case is Driving without an Operator's License or "NoOL." The classic defense to a NoOL charge is to generally provide proof that you were properly licensed at the time of driving. In this case, as the officer indicated, you would need to provide a valid license and it may be accepted by the Court: either a valid US state license or a International Driver's License. The Court may convict you of...

    Let's talk nuts and bolts and leave the legalese aside for a moment. Your posting references several elements which target fairness / equitable arguments instead of the issue of truth of the allegation - whether you breached the terms of your probation. Assuming for a moment that the person who blew into the interlock device was you (a fact which is open as there were guests at your home), the next issue is what to do with you. What should the Judge do with you? The Judge has much...

    The airline and the airport do not detain people. The officers with arrest powers normally detain people. The airline must give the passenger manifest to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for screening against no fly databases which is reserved for suspected terrorists and sympathizers of terrorists. Normally, DHS does not conduct a scan of each person for outstanding warrants unless you are clearing Customs and entering the United States. As such, you have a low probability of...

  8. I was arrested and held over night supopsedly for drunk in public. I never was aggressive with officers or resisted arrest.

    As a former police officer, I understand that most persons cannot comprehend the actions of police officers. But, I also appreciate that there are instances when the police act irresponsibly and with too much force. The issue in your potential civil claim against the officers and department will be whether the officers used excessive force against you. The fact that you were found not guilty is a fact in your favor, but it does not go to the heart of the question: Could the police...

    Any "appeal" right you have in an employment setting will be based on your company handbook. The handbook is generally your contract with the employer. Virginia is indeed an at will state - you may be fired with or without cause. However, if there is an appeal process set forth in your company handbook, that will generally dictate your rights to appeal a decision of your employer.

    Let us first begin with the law: § 18.2-96. Petit larceny defined; how punished. Any person who: 1.
