    Sounds like your record is already sealed and you're good. When in doubt though, be safe and consult with a good, local defense lawyer to get expert advice, out of an abundance of caution. Good luck.

  • Should i appear court myself or must hire attorney? What is the chances of success on removing these violations specially FTA.

    I have received a DMV notice that my license will be suspended. I have been charged with 21453AVC, 40508AVC, 405095VC and asked to contact court. I didn't receive any traffic ticket/ court notice because those were sent to an older address. When i...

    William’s Answer

    The FTA can place a hold, or suspension, on your license. Sounds like you may have at least a partial defense to this. I'd advise you to consult with a good, local defense lawyer asap and seek representation to go with you to court. Don't delay. Good luck.

  • Do I still have to pay this fine? If so, how?

    I got a truancy ticket back in 2010 when I was 17 I didn't go to the scheduled court date so the dmv sent me a letter saying I couldn't get a license until I went to court and paid the fine ...I was asked to pay $470 I held this off for years...ti...

    William’s Answer

    I agree with Mr. Hill. Go to that county's traffic court and ask the clerks there for a status. I'm sure you still have to pay and thus, i'm sure there's still a hold on your license. The traffic clerk should be able to tell you where and how much to pay. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    Yes, you should attend traffic school, it's well worth it, and can be done online. You should be eligible as long as you've not attended within the last 18 months. The traffic court clerks can provide you with all the necessary court paperwork, fees, and info, etc. Good luck.

  • So will this show up at the airport if im getting ready to fly

    Iam on informal probation and have bench warrent hold i gotta go to court next month

    William’s Answer

    To be safe and sure, contact your attorney to inquire as the status of your warrant. If you don't have a lawyer, contact and hire one to find out for you, and to possibly move up the hearing date to deal with the warrant before you travel. If the warrant is being 'held' by the court, then you're probably ok, but it's always better to be safe, than sorry. Get a lawyer. Don't wait. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    If you can get out of this job by paying back the money and resigning, withOUT them filling criminal charges, you would be lucky and should accept. You should be very careful about what they ask you to sign however, and it's always a good idea to have a lawyer advise you in person, and review anything before you sign it. Good luck.

  • Do I still have warrants for my arrest

    I was arrested on warrants in Las Vegas but my warrants were out of alameda county they told Las Vegas to detain me they were coming to get me but they didn't come I was released from jail after seven days

    William’s Answer

    Unless the released you pursuant to a cite out, or new court date in Alameda, then yes, you very likely still do have active warrant(s) there. You should consult with and hire a good defense attorney who is local to the alameda area and get your case(s) back on calendar to recall the warrant(s) and address your case(s) head on. Don't wait. Good luck.

  • Can you get my charges dismissed?

    I was driving on I-5 near Stockton and CHP stopped me going 90mph. Took my blood and it ended up being a .13 so yeah I had a DUI. However, police officer never read me my Miranda Rights he just arrested me for DUI. I read online that means an auto...

    William’s Answer

    I concur with my colleagues. Miranda isn't required and usually not even done on DUI investigations. This certainly does not guarantee a dismissal. You've got problems here as you were going way too fast, and were over 1 1/2 times the legal limit. You need to listen to your PD or hire your own lawyer asap, and listen to him/her. From what you've said there was ample, legit grounds for the stop (excessive, almost reckless, speeding) and then yes, you were over the limit. You need to adjust your expectations. Good luck.

    William’s Answer

    Mr. Dane is correct. Only if it's set for a 'trial,' and the officer doesn't show up do you get a dismissal. Inquire about traffic school, too, which can be a good resolution. Good luck.
