    In Michigan, at age 15 or younger, the person is unable to provide legal consent to sexual contact. Even if the person, age 15 or younger, consents to sexual contact, the other party may face charges of criminal sexual conduct. You are urged to reconsider this course of action and hopefully your parents are aware of your circumstances. You are also urged to personally consult with a private attorney so that you are fully advised.

    There are several possible scenarios which are all misdemeanors and means you should hire a lawyer: -License never acquired -No valid ops on person -Driving while suspended or revoked If you merely did not have your license in your possession, an attorney may be able to get the offense dropped or amended to a non-criminal violation. If your license is suspended, the court will be less sympathetic and you will want an attorney to try and negotiate a deal for you.

    You would be well advised to contact a lawyer to walk you into the court and have the warrant set aside. The lawyer will then look into the notice issues to make sure the court has complied. If notice was not provided according to law (mailed to your last address or not provided on your ticket or paper work), you may have a statute of limitations issue (6 years) or due process/manifest injustice grounds to dismiss for delay in prosecution. However, you must have known that your license was in...

    Plea bargaining is the terminology utilized when settlements are achieved in criminal cases. I have attached a link below which discusses the subject of plea bargaining with respect to drunk driving cases. OWPD (drugs) carries the Sam penalties as OWI (alcohol). If there was no accident, no injuries, no prior similar cases on your record; you should be in good shape to seek a plea bargain to the lower offense of impaired driving. In exceptional cases, am attorney may request a deviation to...

    Was this a traffic stop? How did the police find the gun? Did you admit that you had it in your possession or did the police conduct a search on some grounds? This is a case where an attorney might be able to keep the felony off your record depending upon the circumstances. ABDO LAW Criminal and DUI Defense Lawyers

    An out of state conviction still counts. In the old days, before the internet and computers, there was sloppy reporting to other states. Now, when you apply for a license in another state, your prior residences are easily ascertained and in many cases have to be revealed when you apply for your license. If this is an OWI with no prior offenses, it is manageable if you get a lawyer to help you. Don't do anything crazy or permanent without talking to a lawyer. ABDO LAW Phone 586-412-5555

    You should contact a lawyer for strategic moves. If you are on a paper license, you can continue to re-new it while you are waiting. You cannot get a paper license unless the police agency files a notice with the SOS that they do not intend to prosecute this case. However, a lawyer can advise you whether this is a good move or whether you should wait until you have a better argument to have the case dismissed on due process grounds for failure to prosecute within a reasonable time frame.

    If you plead to something, a transcript of your plea can be obtained. The transcript will provide you with the terms of your plea and any special deal such as delayed sentence or HYTA. I never tell anyone that there will be no record. Records never vanish. First of all, your original warrant and arrest can be on different lists or private sites that collect information. In addition, the courts, state police and FBI keep records of everything forever, even cases dismissed pursuant to HYTA....

    A discharge of probation is what you are looking for. The discharge will usually say ""with compliance" or "with improvement" or " successful fulfillment". You should ask the court for this since you we're compliant and such a form may be needed in the future to prove your cooperation and rehabilitation. Congratulations.
