    Try using the ICHAT system on the Michigan State Police website. Hiring a private investigator for a background check or just a criminal history check should work as well.

    You are asking the wrong question. You should not "fight" the ticket but you ABSOLUTELY should go to court on it. Most city attorneys and prosecutors will give someone a break if they ask for a hearing on a ticket. You are not "fighting" it but you are just trying to work it out. Points alone or even a moving violation without points can have a significant and expensive impact on your insurance and will undoubtedly have a negative impact on the resolution of any future traffic ticket.

    Possibly depending on the charges the person is pleading to. A plea of no contest is exactly the same thing as a plea of guilty as it relates to SORA and your criminal history. A criminal sexual conduct charge is very serious and you should not be representing yourself. If you have the resources to hire a lawyer, it is undoubtedly in your best interest to retain counsel.

    And experienced drivers license restoration lawyer would give you the best chance of success. Most people who represent themselves do not win. The process of petitioning the drivers license appeal division is more complex than most people realize. There are instructions for a DLAD appeal on the Secretary of States website. The truth is that their suggestions are only the tip of the iceberg and there are more unwritten rules then there are written rules.

    Most people do not realize that OWI cases are among the most difficult that criminal defense lawyers handle if they are going to take the time and energy to obtain the best possible result. The issues involved in making a determination of the likelihood that a plea bargain will be offered are extremely complex. No lawyer over the Internet, without sufficient knowledge of your case, can reliably assess the potential of you being offered any type of plea or sentence agreement. Do yourself a...

    If he is merely claiming that you committed a crime and he believes it to be true, the mere statement of his belief is probably not actionable. If, on the other hand, he is threatening to have you prosecuted if you do or do not do something, that could be extortion. Without knowing the specific facts, it is hard to give you advice. It sounds serious enough that you should personally consult with a lawyer. You cannot rely on advice over the internet from attorneys who do not work for you on...

    The reality is that even though you clearly deserve to have your driving privileges reinstated, without a lawyer you stand less than optimal chance of succeeding. If you lose you will have to wait 1 year before you can apply again. Of course you can appeal a denial to circuit court but a lawyer for an appeal is expensive and will be stuck with the less than complete record you are going to create. Furthermore, when you realize you need a lawyer and go back for the second time, after a year,...

    Sentencing is not the same for every case, even when the charge is identical. The actual sentence imposed depends on a multitude of factors including the individual facts of the case, background of the defendant, sentencing judge, prosecutor, quality of the defense lawyer and other innumerable factors. An experienced defense lawyer should be able to predict the likely outcome and protect the client from jail if possible.

    It sounds like you lucked out! Unfortunately, it is still possible that you could be charged. I would not recommend that you contact the police under any circumstances. It may be worth the investment in a criminal defense attorney who can check in the background see what's going on and if something is brewing, whether there's a way to stop it.
