    Your probation officer will likely receive a report from the Ignition Interlock Company. You should meet with a lawyer to discuss a possible revocation of your probation.

    Yes, you should get to a qualified civil attorney in your area immediately. Premises liability law is fairly clear about a case such as this, where the person working at the facility INVITED your mother into an area where the floor was slippery and unsafe. Look for the highest rated civil practitioner on AVVO.com, for the grocery store location.

    You will not be punished for failure to appear in Court if you were incarcerated. You need to contact a defense attorney to help you with the actual DUI and the missed court date. Your attorney will be able to navigate the judicial system and expedite the process.

    Depending on all of the details of what the false license purported to be, you will be facing either a misdemeanor or a felony. Your best bet may be to try to suppress the evidence or statements made once you were confronted.

    You can check the municipal court website for a general idea of possible fine amounts. You should speak with an attorney that handles traffic tickets to see if they can assist you in keeping the ticket off your record.

    This dollar amount constitutes a felony in most states. Get in touch with Mississippi lgeal counsel ASAP, and try to find a way to seek diversion or first offender's treatment. Casinos have cameras everywhere, so your actions will be on tape.
