Well, it certainly sounds like (at this point) this are accusations only, so the court cannot 'make' you pay restitution. You definitly need to get a good lawyer involved immediately, before this goes any further.
But to answer your question, the law does allow a person who is convicted of a crime to be ordered to pay restitution for 'uncharged' crimes in many circumstances.
There are a variety of legitimate, successful ways to challenge speeding tickets, school zone or not. Going in and testifying about what happened, with a general "I don't think the officer is right" argument doesn't work very often. The officer's report will contain the details of the type of speed measuring device (SMD) used, where he/she was parked, how he/she was able to view your car and determine speed, etc. Those details can be very compelling to the judge.
More success is normally had...
The sentencing guidelines can be tricky. It appears to me that the person would have a prior sex offense. Assuming no other felony history, he would be scored a "3" for sentencing purposes. A defendant with an offender score of 3 faces a standard sentence range of 26 - 34 months in prison.
If you meant "SODA", the juvenile court sentencing alternative, then the score would be calculated differently.
I don't see why not. It's a class C, eligible after 5 years from time of discharge from probation. Make sure all the court's costs / fines / restitution is paid, the 5 year clock can't start until all requirements are met.
Well he certainly should have an attorney. There are other concerns besides the fines. I would worry given your description of his health about other potential probation obligations a judge might impose if he isn't well represented. It is common for judges to order years of probation and ongoing requirements of treatment, classes, probation meetings, home monitoring. A judge may also order travel restrictions, including the chance to leave the state.
You may be right, that he won't drive more....
There are some good answers here. In a nutshell, if the State can connect impairment of the ability to drive with the substances in your system, then a jury has evidence with which to convict you. Doesn't mean they will, but they can.
Your question doesn't tell us anything about the evidence that your ability to drive was impaired. If you crashed your car, the State will undoubtedly point to that. That is why they ask you to perform the roadside physical tests, so they can argue your...
I won't say it's 'common', but it certainly happens that prosecutors file bail jumping charges even when they couldn't prove the underlying case. Often bail jumping carries more jail than the original charge did.
Whether bail was forfeited doesn't matter, the statute says "Any person having been released by court order or admitted to bail with knowledge of the requirement of a subsequent personal appearance before any court of this state, ... and who fails to appear ... as required is guilty...
I agree with that calculation on the unlawful possession. Range is probably 72 - 96 on the theft of firearm charge. I would need to review the Information to be sure.
But be aware that if he has more than nine points, a judge gets much more latitude to deviate from the standard sentencing range and exceed it, AND be aware that the law presumes that the court order consecutive sentences on the firearms charges.
Certainly you want to go in to court with a lawyer. Call whoever represented you originally. Since the change in the law last year, most courts aren't prosecuting marijuana related misdemeanors anymore. If that is what the drug was in your case, that may help.
I agree with the others, but 'deferred' can be used a couple of different ways. Make sure you fully understand what is being offered when they say 'deferred'. In my experience, it almost always means a dismissal at the end, but make sure you know exactly what you have to do to get that dismissal, and what can prevent it from happening.
