    Philip’s Answer

    It's too late to do anything about a guilty plea unfortunately. That's why your choice of a good DUI lawyer is so critically important from the beginning of the case. I'm sorry I don't have better news for you. Get a second opinion but I believe you're without any options.

    Philip’s Answer

    I need more information to make a complete answer - you should ask your lawyer who is familiar with your case to better explain it. It is not uncommon for prosecutors to send a case to grand jury for indictment if a judge dismisses a warrant however.

    Yes. They need to let the jail personnel know that they want to waive extradition if that is their decision. Whether is is the right decision is something that should be discussed with a lawyer in the state seeking extradition.

  • I live in New Hampshire and I am 16. The man I am dating is 22, is it illegal if we have sex?

    Age of consent in New Hampshire is 16, I am 16.

    Philip’s Answer

    Assuming that the age of consent in your state is 16 then it would not be illegal. It may be unwise, but not illegal. You should consult a New Hampshire lawyer to be certain.

    Philip’s Answer

    The short answer is no - once your case is completed you are no longer on bond / bail and therefore it cannot be revoked. You are obligated by contract to pay the bonding company as agreed but you are no longer on bond.

    Philip’s Answer

    Regardless of your age, a DUI is something to avoid whenever possible. Although Reckless Driving carries substantial penalties for a driver who is under 21, it is still better than a DUI conviction. You'd be wise to contact an experienced DUI attorney as soon as possible. If your license was taken by the police at the time of your arrest, you only have 10 business days to submit an appeal from that administrative action or you will have waived your opportunity to do so.
