    Section 63-3-515 Mississippi Code 1972 gives the authority to set speed limits in school zones to cities and counties.I do not know whether the officer knew the vehicle speed to be fifty (50) in a fifteen (15) school zone,but the issuance of tickets for speeding is within the discretion of the officer.Should you have a complaint about the officer not writing a ticket ,you could complain to the local police chief or sheriff

    Probation Officers generally have reporting requirments as a part of the suspended sentence,and once the probation agreement is signed and entered into by your friend,the failure to comply with this probation agreement will cause a probation violation to occur. The court where the sentence/probation occured will be notified and the court will have your friends name and other identification placed on a national law enforcement web site for pickup and return to Florida for a revocation hearing....

    There are places around military installations where jurisdiction can be shared with local law enforecement agencies.When this sharing occurs the agreement will be in writing and on record,both with the base and in the local city/county government.If this agreement is valid for the time period when you were arrested then the military can arrest you for a DUI.

    Your answer requires more informaqtion to answer.Were you on base and went out near the gate? Did the military police ever see you on base,or did you tell them you were on base? perhaps the military has concurrent jurisdiction with the local police.

    I must presume that your charge has not been to court and you have not yet been found guilty of anything.Before you consider expungements,which are purely discretionary,consider hiring an Attorney and defend these charges in court.

    This is a question for your lawyer.You should understand that a mere charge is not a conviction. Charges are not proof of a crime,and all charges must be supported by evidence which should be brought up in either pre-trial motions by your Attorney. I presume that you have fully advise your attorney of all facts in your case,and if not then you must meet with your legal counsel to discuss these matters to your satisfaction.

    Mississippi is a two level court system.A conviction on any DUI is stopped when taken on appeal to the next level of court. Some counties have sufficient population to have a county court,and others are to the circuit court of that county.This appeal is accomplished by posting an appeal bond and filing a notice of appeal to the next court.I have authored Mississippi DUI Law And Practice by Thompson west and this procedure is outlined in my book.Please call my office for any further information....
