Gracious, don't mess around with that. We've seen people charged for driving to DMV on a revoked license. Although never personally hearing of an arrest in those circumstances, it certainly wouldn't be difficult to find.
Furthermore, obtaining an updated license or ID requires an updated permanent address. People serving process on an OFA consult a wide range of computer databases. One of the easiest places to check for information is DMV.
DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE ORDER FOR ARREST....
Good question! There are a few different things that can happen:
1. Most importantly, the failure to comply with the judgment, even regarding alcohol assessment and/or treatment, may result in an order for arrest.
Mecklenburg County has what is referred to as the post judgment center. It has staff who spend their entire day making sure people comply with judgments.
In fact, Charlotte is pretty quick in determining whether or not someone has done community service or treatment or...
That's frankly not that uncommon.
My wife recently was involved in a minor fender-bender and the insurance carrier for the "adverse" side called and pressured for a recorded statement. It made even her nervous. . .and I had warned her in advance.
More information would be helpful regarding "paying off the vehicle" and the specifics of where the case is regarding presentation of a claim. As you may have read in a prior posting, one should not sign any documents releasing liability...
Call the Probation Officer. Depending on the type of charge, and obviously the Judgment entered by the Court, treatment may already be a condition.
I don't think I ever seen problems with someone seeking help. I HAVE seen problems when people don't keep in touch with Adult Supervision and/or trying to avoid other conditions of probation by running to a treatment facility.
Again, ALWAYS a good idea to contact probation without delay.
Great question though!
Good question! That happens more than expected and is sometimes associated with the State's ability (or inability) to make a "prima facie" case. Operation of a motor vehicle is what is commonly referred to as an essential element of any DWI DUI Impaired Driving case.
Put simply, they're complicated and sometimes involve a "Trexler" issue, associated with North Carolina v. Trexler.
Given all the different possible fact scenarios, it makes sense to consult with an experienced attorney...
Sometimes people don't fully understand the hows and whys of a settlement, especially as it pertains to legal fees. There tend to be a LOT of moving parts when it comes to presenting a claim for damages, injuries, lost wages, etc.
In many instances a personal injury attorney will have established the different percentages and terms of representation via a written contract. You may benefit from taking a closer look at the agreement with the firm / attorney. If that still doesn't answer...
Need more information.
Normally one must first be "charged" with offenses prior to the appointment of counsel process. Assuming he qualifies, having been found "indigent" after preparing an Affidavit of Indigency, the Court would appoint counsel. . .which may or may not be a Public Defender.
The inquiry did not list a town / county in North Carolina. Some judicial districts appoint private attorneys as counsel. Other districts have a formal Public Defenders office.
Really best to ask your attorney. DWI sentencing is quite complicated.
I feel certain your attorney would be more than willing to explain things. Call ASAP and set up an appointment or phone conference.
Sorry couldn't be of more assistance.
That's a really good question. We get asked that all the time.
The Miranda case applies to custodial interrogation. That means when police question someone when they in custody. A failure to comply with Miranda may result in the suppression of statements made without proper warning.
That does not mean the charges are automatically dismissed. Frankly, that is a common misunderstanding of the law.
Voluntary statements made while in custody, even without Mitanda, may be admissible at...
