    I agree with the previous answer. Worst case scenario, the judge could put you in jail for violating the terms of your probation. The best thing you can do is to take of it. Good luck to you.

    If you have paid the bill or otherwise made payments, you should be able to provide proof of payment. This is not an unreasonable request. However, when bills are large, it should be sufficient to simply show proof of the amount owed. If father owes you the money, and you are unable to pay the bill, he still owes the money. Give them a copy of the bill and demand to be paid.

    You are going to need a defense attorney to represent you. 28 mph over the limit is no simple matter as you have left the realm of minor traffic infractions. Pursuant to Sec. 20-141(j)(1) you are charged with a Class 2 misdemeanor. Depending on your criminal record, a Class 2 misdemeanor can mean anything from community service to six months in jail. Further, under this charge you are not eligible for a Prayer for Judgment Continued. You likely will need to attend traffic school or perform...

    The answer to your question depends on whether total abstinence from the use of alcohol for some period of time was ordered as part of your probation. If it was not, then you have nothing to worry about. If it was, and you have violated that restriction, then yes, you should contact your attorney for advice. Good luck to you.

    Your friend is responsible for his citations and the payment of those costs. Likewise, you are responsible for yours. If you were not charged, that is your benefit. In any event, you are not obligated to help your friend pay his costs.

    Your chances of the judge continuing your case for another six months are not good. Your case has been pending since April. It's time fish or cut bait, i.e. you either need to enter a plea or go to trial. Regardless of whether you decide to plead guilty or go to trial, you need to have some serious discussions with your attorney well before your next court date. If you plead guilty or are found guilty after trial, there are some things you will need to do. You will need to get an alcohol...

    I agree with Mr. Seifer, but would add that it is also possible that the State took a voluntary dismissal without prejudice and has simply reinstated the charge.

    Yes, you do need help. You need to hire a DWI defense attorney to represent you. A DWI is not a matter that you can handle yourself. DWI's are complicated and must be handled correctly. I assume, based on what you have said, that you did not take a breathalyzer test, and even if you did, it should have been negative (unless you were drinking as well). I also assume your blood was taken. Whether or not "crystal" will show up on your lab results I have no idea. But even if something does...

    First, good for your parents for not bailing you out. Second, hire a defense attorney to represent you. Third, take responsibility for yourself and find a way to replace your neighbor's golf cart. You are 24 years old, grow up.

    Simple enough, no one will rent to you because you are a known drug user. It really just becomes an issue of liability. As a landlord myself, I can tell you that I will absolutely not rent to someone that I know uses drugs. Having said that, I do have a suggestion for you. Consider taking a drug education class or get involved with some other type of rehabilitation. First, perhaps you will stop doing drugs altogether. Second, you will show prospective landlords that you are at least...
