    I think your issue is how this will affect your financial aid and the only people who can truly help you with that would specifically be financial aid. As for the court appearance if your record is as clean as you say you may only get a slap on the wrist. You should still contact a lawyer in that area because of the collateral consequence to your financial aid.

    I have to agree with Mr. Buckley. While it appears to be completly unfair it does not appear to be against any statute or law. I am not aware of any law that states the police officers have to be visible in order to give you a ticket. Sorry

    The legality of this incident depends on the legality of the use of the Confidential Informant, which is determined by a number of factors we would discuss. For example, if it can be shown that the informant is not credible or has unreliable information, there may not be probable cause for the warrant and the audio could not be used against you. Furthermore, because the conversation has been tampered with, there may be grounds to suppress the conversation.

    What you need to do is contact both the district attorney in the jurisdiction and find out why specifically you were denied. What you need to find out is the particulars of the case that the restraining order arised from and actually attack those specifcally. You should find a lawyer in the original jurisdiction to help you with this.

    Your Warrant is more than likely still active. What you need to find out is if NC will extradite you back for a DUI. You need to contact a lawyer in NC.

    You can absolutely terminate your lawyer. Regardless if the state hired him or not, a defendant can not be forced to accept represenatation. However if you do terminate your lawyer the court is likely to give you two choices 1.) Hire your own lawyer at your expense or 2.) defend the case yourself. Just something to think about before you dump your lawyer

    You absolutely have a chance at fighting these chages. Remember that is exactly what they are charges. I would take a picture of the muffler with you to court, take a copy of both your registration and insurance with you to court and see if the DA will drop the charges. If the charges are not dropped immediatly you should obtain counsel in your area to help you with this case.
