    A violation may be based on a new case, but it is not necessarily a new case. A violation can result in jail, fines, other terms of probation, etc. You need to consult with counsel immediately.

    When she goes to court, her attorney can ask that bail be set. It will be high, as she has FTAs. She has very few equities on this issue.

    You can mention it in court at the hearing. You should also contact law enforcement and complain. This sounds like multiple crimes have been committed.

  6. What happens at a motion for a finding of factual innocence? I am looking at hiring an attorney to do this, but must know more

    At a motion, the judge will take evidence and make a decision. You can subpoena witnesses to any motion where the judge has to make a factual finding. If objected to, declarations are hearsay and are generally not admitted unless there is some particular reason for the judge to consider them and the opposition allows. Oftentimes, the attorneys don't object to declarations so they come in as if they were evidence. You definitely need to have an attorney.

    You need to talk to an attorney for specifics regarding your case. Do not post any facts or identifying information in a public forum: you may make admissions you will regret later.

    1. Shut up, especially in public forums. 2. Get counsel. They can build quite a case from this. Especially if you have priors. 3. The Rosamond doctors all know the number for the CHP. 4. Diabetic, drinking, accidents, leaving hospitals, with priors? Take a good look at where you are in life.
