Charges are filed by signing an affidavit(sworn statement),and once filed an arrest warrant is issued by the court(presiding Judge). This warrant is active until served,or,an appearance is made in court by the person who signed the warrant to withdraw(drop)the charges.This procedure is formal,and can not simply be done when an officer "says ok". Now your brother needs legal counsel to handle this matter in open court and before the Judge. Good Luck!
When you are arrested,your record of arrest is with the local law enforcement agency,the state agency(mississippi crime information center) and the national agency(the national crime information center).This record of photographs,fingerprints,reports,ect,remains on file forever,unless action is taken to close/seal said records. In addition,almost nothing happens automatically with cases remanded/dismissed. As you have stated,ALL EMPLOYERS now require you to disclose prior records/convictions...
Your case will be tried in Hattisburg City Court.This court has three judges and they hear cases on a rotating basis.Your best bet would be to take pictures of the entire area at the time you were cited for the violation and bring them to court with you to show that no one was present.Hattisburg police set up at school zones in order to monitor traffic when school begins and lets out for the afternoon.As a fallback approach you might talk to Sally O'Flynn ,the prosecutor about driving school...
Under Mississippi law all convictions become a permanent record,unless steps are taken to expunge them from your record.These will show up every time you try to get a job.Upon arrest a record is started with the local law enforcement agency.the state of Mississippi,and the FBI.The act of expungement is processed through the local court where the case was tried or pled,and is discretionary with the judge, further the Mississippi Legislature/courts have enacted certain provisions (new laws) which...
You should hire a Lawyer!!!! An Arrest is not a conviction.The only reason to plead guilty is because you are if fact GUILTY. All the arresting officers need to arrest you is mere probable cause,a very low amount of proof,but the level of proof for a conviction is much higher,it's called beyond a reasonable doubt ,which is a much higher amount of proof. Good luck !
While your question has many varibles,I will try to provide some assistance.I must first presume that your son was convicted of an adult DUI,due to the fine amount.He is now facing a DUI second offense within five years,which carries up to one year in Jail,a fifteen hundred dollar fine,a two year license suspension,impoundment of his vehicle for two years,and an ignition interlock on his vehicle,plus up to a year of community service.The charge of driving while his license is suspended is a...
Most municipalties have Mayor action lines or a recognised method of handling citizen complaints.As you know dog attacks have been a high profile problem for a long time,and as such,once you have used all the regular ways to deal with this probelm,I suggest contacting the local news media,or your state senator/repesntative for assistance.

Generally the arresting officer only has to have probable cause to arrest.This is a very low amount of proof which in your case might be a as little as the description by the officer of the recovery of a small bag of a green leafy substance which could be marijuana.However more proof such as a crime lab report of a test result may be needed for conviction
The best answer it to check with an Immigration Lawyer in your state either by calling the local bar association or on line by searching immigration Lawyers.Both the prior DUI's and the prior deportation will be substantial barriers to overcome.
