  • Can a 16 year old move out of their guardian's home?

    If a 16 year old and a 25 year old are engaged a sexual relationship, can the 16 year old move out of their parent's home with the 25 year old? Will the 25 year old face any charges?

    Edd’s Answer

    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.

  • How can I remove a speeding ticket citation from my national criminal background check?

    In 2011 I was going 75 in a 55, it was reduced and I paid the fine, also it is the only speeding ticket I have on my record. It still shows up on my criminal background as a "criminal record" without any details explaining to employers it is only ...

    Edd’s Answer

    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.

    Edd’s Answer

    It is a traffic misdemeanor that happened outside the presence of law enforcement which generally don't get charged short of law enforcement involvement. But the video could be troubling. Obviously, it lead to some official bringing a charge against you. I would hire local counsel to help present your side of the events to the prosecutor in effort to get it thrown out.

    Edd’s Answer

    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.

  • Went DMV hearing lost my case is thier any way to get a conditional lisence for work . after my license have been suspended

    I violated restrict back 00.4 I blew 00.5

    Edd’s Answer

    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.

    Edd’s Answer

    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.
