It would normally require an examination of the hard drive of a computer associated with you to determine if any internet postings/emails came from your computer. But with remote access devices and the possibility that other individuals have access to your computer that still raises the possiblity someone impersonated you.
If your email system has been compromised, I would suggest you take some protective measures such as getting a new password or even a new email account.
It is very difficult to prove a person received a summons for jury duty. I know of only one case (in another state) in which a person was prosecuted for failing to respond to a summons. The person in that case had told a subordinate she would be fired if she answered a jury summons and mentioned how he had ignored a summons. The subordinate did show up for jury service and was fired--and the media made quite an issue of this and then it crossed the prosecuting authority's mind to prosecute the...
Many courts will, upon request, appoint an attorney at public expense for a material witness. I think this is an avenue you should explore--at least with a phone call to the administrator that handles public defense appointments in the jurisdiction your warrant was issued from.
I think you are providing too many details about your case in a public forum. To answer your last question first, it is unusual for the prosecutor to drop a charge based on an unwitting possession defense unless you were to take and then passed a polygraph test. In respect to your other question, credibility is a key component to the answer to this question and that is hard to judge without meeting someone. Are your passengers willing to fall on their sword for you or are they going to refuse...
First, you have to ask the court to get the case out of collections--which some courts are reluctant to do. Second, if you can convince the court to take it out of collections then you can ask to have the interest and penalties waived--which some courts are also reluctant to do especialy if you paid nothing in 4 years. Third, it is a joint and several obligation so the restitution order remains in effect until it is satisfied.
The Pierce County Superior Court in Tacoma expects you to serve the prosecutor with a notice of a motion to qaush a warrant and then there is a confirmation process. The notice will be genrated by the clerk's office and can be taken to the prosecutor but then proof needs to be returned to the clerk.
I am reluctant to offer any advice without more information but I think you have to act fairly quickly. Certain U/As can test for alcohol/drug consumption for several days and may rebut the insinuation from a failed ignition interlock. U/As can be easily doctored and I don't know how much weight your particular judge would give a U/A because of this.
Blood tests are probably more relaible than U/As and cost about the same.
Some hair follicle tests can now check for up to 3 months of...
A theft conviction has the criminal consequences that were addressed by a different lawyer but also can make it difficult to find employment since it is a crime of dishonesty. I think hiring a lawyer or, if you can't afford a lawyer, using a public defender is the prudent course.
There are no real hard and fast rules about what requires a judge to recuse himself or hereself from a case in our state. Canon 3 subsection 4 of the Code of Judicial Conduct, however, prohibits ex parte communications being initiated or considered by a judicial officer in a pending proceedings. The judge, therefore, should not tell a probation officer outside your presence that you are on a short leash if that judge ishearing your case.
