    They have several years to file on you, so don't worry about that. Make sure you get an attorney to review any "deals" you strike with them as, most of the time, these deals are largely unenforceable. They'll contact you when they need you.

    From a practical point of view- is it worth fighting, financially. From a legal point, I'm fairly certain that is a valid citation so you might not have much ground to fight it.

    If he pleaded guilty to the theft already, they (the State) can't charge him with theft again. The Insurance company can't charge him with anything as they're just a private company, but they might be able to go after him civilly, for costs incurred in recovering that money. It seems like it would be a waste of time for them, though.

    If the judge requires it or it's part of the settlement agreement, yes. If not, no, it doesn't have to be.

    Appeals are extremely technical matters. Whether there is or isn't something that can be done requires a great deal of research, thought and expertise. I would strongly advise contacting an attorney to go forward with any more appeals.

    It can take a very long time. I have a client that is waiting since January! It just depends on how backed up the labs are.

    While the public defenders are more than competent attorneys, they are very overworked. A good privately retained attorney will likely put more time and effort into your case.

    Well you have a much better chance than not guilty. There are a lot of rules about the admissibility of the portable breath test devices. This definitely falls under the category of "hire an attorney to fight it."

    It might make it hard to prove at trial since officers rely on those notes, but that doesn't automatically create grounds for dismissal, to answer your question.
