    If you received one year probation, I am assuming you we're in district court. You can search www.oscn.net and it may tell you why you the violation was filed. It may be as simple as you didn't send in the final report or pay your monthly probation fees. Depending on what it is, may be relatively easy to clear up. Good luck

    If strictly failure to pay, the court will ant it caught up or some type of valid reason why it hasn't been paid. Most courts are not going to send someone to prison over a first time failure to pay if that is only issue.

    The purpose of paying a bondsman is to post the bond for you. They do this by posting a surety with the court. The bondsman charged you 500 fee to do this. That is their fee and how they make money. You would owe the bondsman the 5000 if sister no showed for court and the bondsman had to pay the court 5000. As she is back in custody, the bondsman should not have had to pay anything else so you would not owe the bondsmen anything else.

    Not sure which college you are referring to but most of the private campuses in OK have signs posted at verious places. If it was Oklahoma City University on 23rd, their police department is actually state certified as a police agancy and as such, have the same abilities as any other police department. Their jurisdiction extends beyond their campus all the way from penn to near classen and 23rd up to NW 30th. The OCU police are very aggressive in contacting people on their campus.

    Based on your post, i am guessing this is what happened from the information provided. If your husband was suspended for three years, then he would of have to of had two prior license suspension for DUI or drugs within the previous 10 years. (A first time suspension only carries 180 days and a second suspension carries 1 year DL suspension and the three year suspension is for third or more revocations). As it was a third, OK DPS deemed him a '"Excessive User' which required the additional...

    Each case is different but with priors, it is harder to get a reduction or dismissal. Also, each set of facts and different jurisdictions can change the price as there may be more issues that need to be explored or more motions to file. Although the Tulsa market is a little different than OKC, $2k is very low for most DUI cases if being handled by an experienced DUI attorney. Most DUI qualified (ie...have attended DUI seminars, are field sobriety trained, are certified on the Intoxilyzer,...

    I'm not sure how you know the DA thinks it is Thursday but shouldn't matter. Most DA offices, including Pottawatomie County, pull the daily dockets for the judges they appear in front of so should get caught by the staff. It is possible to file the charges right before court. If the DA is not present, the judge's office will call over to the DA's office and have someone come over. They are next door in the old Carnagie library. If the charges are not filed yet, the judge may give you a...

  8. Can my lawyer quit my case after i have paid him in full upfront

    1 lawyer answer

    Almost all attorneys will use a contract for legal services. Refer to your contract to see the terms of the contract and whether the fee is refundable and under what circumstances. There are reasons for an attorney to withdraw from a case even though the fee may have been paid. (ie...course of action by client that is unthical or illegal or if you create a conflict between you and he). If there is no contract, then he may be in aposition that he has to defend his fee by showing that he...

    Keep in mind that the PD will only handle the criminal case and will not handle the civil aspects of preventing license suspension or getting you modified driving privileges. When you consider the hidden costs of a DUI like higher insurance, etc, the cost of a private attorney makes sense. Make sure you find someone that is a member of NCDD as they will be dedicated to DUI Defense, John Hunsucker www.okdui.com

    You will need to look at you fee contract with the attorney. Also, it will depend on the amount of work he has done and the type of case involved. I agree with the previous poster that you need to contact the attorney. Two weeks is not a lot of time depending on the type of case. Also, there may be work going on behind the scene that you may not be aware of (requesting medical records, accident records, police reports, demand letters, etc). Some of these documents may be necessary before...
