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...
Those hearings are notoriously fraught with problems. Rotating experienced legal counsel would be very helpful.
Normally, the hearing officer is concerned with any level of consumption and/or operation of a motor vehicle during the period of suspension or revocation.
You may wish to contact Sarah Jessica Farber. She handles matters in Wakr County. Please say hello if you call Sarah.
Given the consequences of the hearing, and further considering how long revocations can last, it really...
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...
The most appropriate answer is "retain an attorney immediately." Try not to fret, there may be options available.
Criminal matters, such as the one described in the inquiry, can be complicated. Experienced legal counsel can guide you through the process.
You may wish to call Charles Farris if the case is in Wilson.
Please say "hey" if you call.
First, sorry to hear you're going through all this.
Until it happens to either you or someone you know, it can be hard to truly understand how difficult and sometimes frustrating the process can be.
Speak with an attorney, as the factual basis can be critical to the presentation of a claim.
And probably most importantly, focus on your health and get back to where you were before the loss.
As to property damage, a lot has to do with the particular carrier. Some policies provide...
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.
