    If, what you are asking is whether you can seek to have a bench warrant vacated or lifted when a presiding judge issues a bench warrant for failure to appear, successfully arguing such a motion is possible depending on the circumstances. I would recommend you retain an attorney.

    With respect to your question of "what is the punishment for "intoxication" burglary, in SC burglary generally falls into one of 3 categories, 1st degree, 2nd degree, or 3rd degree. Potential sentencing varies dependent on the charge. 1st degree is clearly the most serious with a potential life sentence. Your friend clearly needs experienced legal counsel. With respect to your friend's level of intoxication, voluntary intoxication is generally not a defense.

    In certain situations there are ways to petition the Court to set aside such guilty findings. The process for advancing such requests can be complicated and should be made fairly quickly. I would recommend you hire legal representation as soon as possible to evaluate your case, and if appropriate under your facts, seek your desired relief.

    I agree with both prior answers. While participation in PTI by a person accused of a qualifying offense is completely voluntary, the requirements imposed on participants can be significant. Having an attorney argue for your position is likely your best option if you are seeking to stay in PTI.

    The answer is fairly dependent on the facts of your particular case, the charge you were convicted of, and the nature of your sentence. There is also the possibility of petitioning for a pardon. I would strongly recommend you seek out the advise of an experienced Attorney.

    I concur with the other opinions given, an Alford plea is subject to the same 10 day notice of intent to appeal as a regular guilty plea. Strongly recommend you seek counsel right away.

    The other answers provided are correct. Diversion programs such as the Alcohol Education Program or Pre Trial Intervention provide opportunities to avoid a conviction which could have potential long term consequences for you. I strongly recommend you seek out an attorney to assist you with this matter.

    It depends on why that original ticket was dismissed. If the police lacked reasonable suspicion to stop your vehicle at all, and the Court determines that the basis for the stop was illegal, it could be possible to have subsequent unrelated charges assessed at the same time dismissed on constitutional grounds.
