    • Selected as best answer

    Contact an attorney in Virginia. They would be able to know the specifics in that jurisdiction. That attorney should be able to assist you and possibly fight the ticket also. Us TN attorneys wouldn't be familiar with the procedures in Va. Unless they are licensed there also. Good luck to you.

  • Mandatory jail time for first time felony introduction into penal facility

    Over the counter medicine 3pills and 1 prescription pill the prescription was in my name

    William’s Answer

    You could be incarcerated for over a year but there is only a charges that carry mandatory jail time. I doubt that you will get jail time for the offense but without looking at your entire case there is no way to answer your question definitively. Get an attorney to assist you. It will be worth it. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    You could get up to six months in jail but that is unlikely. It always helps if you are able to get your license reinstated prior to court. If you can the court will normally just change it to a traffic ticket. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    It does sound like he may be in federal custody. If not then he has multiple warrants that he must answer for in the multiple states. Many times counties and states contract with the federal government to hold their prisoners. Hope this helps.

    Do I have to be a US Citizen to be a federal criminal investigator?

    William’s Answer

    Yes. Go to USAJobs and make a profile. The minimum requirements of each job is listed in the announcement and I believe all investigators positions require you to be a US citizen.

  • My uncle is 19 and his girl friend is 16 ,she may be pregnant,if she is what can he get charged with?

    I basically just wanna know because I dont think her parents like him too much?

    William’s Answer

    Nope. He is within the law but if her parents don't like him then his life will be miserable trying to spend time with his child. If the child is born out of wedlock he needs to make sure he legitimizes the child and gets a parenting plan in place unless they get married.

    William’s Answer

    Probably not. Go to the tN Department of Safety website and you can see the amount of points that you could lose. You may still be able to go to a traffic school in Wilson County. Call the number on the ticket and find out. Good luck!

  • What are the consequences for violation of probation for juvenile

    I'm 16 I cop for the first time I wanna know what the consequences are for that

    William’s Answer

    The court could incarcerate you for the maximum time allowed by your original charge. Let's say it was a misdemeanor charge, the court could place you in custody for 11 months and 29 days. Will that happen, probably not. The point is do your probation and stay out of trouble. The court can have jurisdiction over you until you turn 21. Do you really want that? Good luck to you.
