    Harold’s Answer

    You will need a certified disposition from the court where the case was held, showing that the case was dismissed. If you send it to the Secretary of State, they will remove it from your record. You should also consider filing for an expungement to remove it from your criminal record.

    You are free to retain attorney. In fact, you should do so if there is any possibility that you might be charged with a criminal offense. You are not entitled to a public defender until you have been arrested.

    Harold’s Answer

    Now you know what happens when you miss court. Most likely the judge will vacate no bail warrant so long as you appear on this new court date but you should discuss this with your attorney.

    Harold’s Answer

    You need to retain an attorney to defend you in court. Only after reviewing all of the evidence against you and taking into consideration how that will all play out at trial in front of the judge in your case or before the prospective jurors in your county can an attorney give you advice as to the likelihood of success at trial or a reduction of the charge.

    Harold’s Answer

    Your license was revoked due to the DUI conviction. You will have to have a license reinstatement hearing at the Secretary of State to regain your license. I strongly recommend retaining attorney to help you with this process.

    Harold’s Answer

    You can go to court and either check to verify that the clerk has sent a copy of the rescission order to the SOS or get your own certified copy and hand-deliver the order yourself.
