    Your PO can violate you but it rest with the Judge in NC to revoke your probation and send you to prison. Most POs hold off until there is a conviction or acquittal since your probation is stayed (put on hold) at the time the new charge is brought against you.

    Yes. The State can proceed with alternative evidence such as the doctrine of recent possession if the property was found in your possession shortly after the robbery. Direct evidence is not always needed if there is enough circumstantial evidence that will support a reasonable inference that the suspect was in fact the robber. Also, compassion for certain victims I.E. the elderly in these cases may allow weak evidence to stretch further.

    Refer to your judgment and any judgment modifications ordered by the Court. If you do not already have a copy of the judgment you generally can get a copy from the Clerk's Office in the County in which your case was resolved.

    The 16 year old would have to emancipate in NC. Civilly, until age 18 one is considered a minor. Also, would be wise to sit down with a criminal attorney to get advice and consult on any criminal concerns if the relationship has been ongoing before the age of consent.

    If it was reduced to 15 or less then it is no longer a traffic misdemeanor. Likely not to cause you to much heartburn in your job search, unless you would be driving a company vehicle. No way to wipe it off your record, IF it is in fact there and that is a big IF. Pull a current driving record and see if it appears. Good luck.

    Going to tough for the State to prove the 99 in 55 mph. Fleeing to elude, yeah, that will cause forfeiture of license and the Judge could possible impose his/her own period of suspension as conditions of judgment. My advice, slow down. And hire a local attorney.

    There is no remedy in court in the way of a limited privilege that you could normally get post conviction with no priors (DWIs) in the past seven years. You are considered NOL (i.e. driving with no operator's license) when you violate any license restriction. I would petition NC DMV through counsel to see if a voluntary interlock period on your part may suffice as supposed to an outright suspension. Good luck.

    Generally, you would be eligible for parole after 25 years under NC Fair Sentencing Act for a life sentence. No guarantee of release. The parole board would make a determination. NC Prison Legal Services may be a good place to contact to get some help and further clarification.
