and hit a car. He is looking for a driving job and a potential employer said you have 1 1/2 points. Isn't this too long to matter?
That doesn't sound right to me. He should pull his DMV record as those points should have come off the report years ago. Maybe the employer is using some type of unofficial record.See question
He was allowed to catch his flight after being cuffed, search, the whole nine. But he received in the mail to appear on or before a certain date at the criminal clerks office. Since this is the clerks office, does this mean its a big fine he ha...
I expect he will be referred to court from the clerks office. He may wish to contact the District or City Attorney prior to the date to check on the status of the case. Or he can ask a lawyer to do this for him.See question

Your brother might want to speak with a lawyer. From what you describe it sounds like his prior conviction is a felony and a strike. And, although felon with a firearm is a wobbler, this sounds like it will be a second strike offense.See question
What can I do to better my chances of a no plea diversion as an immigrant? If I plead guilty or no contest I may get deported. I have no criminal history in either country. This is a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
A more likely outcome to this situation would be a reduction of the offense to a non-domestic violence related charge. I am often able to reduce domestic violence charges to disturbing the peace and sometimes we can even get them dismissed all together. Call a competent local lawyer today.See question

A lawyer can often appear without you in the case of a misdemeanor. I make the vast majority of my misdemeanor appearances without my clients being present in court. In many cases I can make all court appearances without the client ever appearing in court.See question

While there are many attorneys who would be willing to talk to you for free regarding your brother's case, you might consider saving your limited financial resources and having him talk to the public defender when he gets to court. The services of the PD are free or very close to free. This sounds like a serious case. You are not likely to find the quality of lawyer you need with your limited resources.See question
