It sounds like the judge was correct. It is not enough to testify that you were assaulted or that it was caught on camera. It has to have happened within that local court's territory. Some prosecutors are paranoid about this technical point and ask where it happened or if it happened within this county multiple times at the beginning and at the end of the direct examination. Other times, that question seems to get glossed over.
Unless there was a median separating the two lanes of travel, you must stop regardless of whether children are present on the street. You might want to talk to a lawyer in a confidential setting for more information. Many offer free consultations.
A criminal defendant has a right to confront and cross-examine his accuser in court. To that reason an affidavit cannot replace live testimony. In my jurisdiction, we do not have an option of testimony by WebEx, but I hear some counties allow it. I would recommend speaking with your victim witness rep if you have one or the Commonwealth Attorney office if you don't have victim witness helping you with your case.
Hollywood is the biggest liar. Miranda is not something that is required to be read as part of the arrest process, but it sure looks that way in the movies. Admitting to drinking didn't help you. A DWI case turns on the details of what you said and did, as well as your physical appearance. Most police departments use body worn cameras that a lawyer will be able to watch. Until then, we can only speculate as to how good or bad your case looks. Get a lawyer as soon as possible.
I think you mean code section 19.2-270.4:1 (there is no 2704:1). That statute was last revised during the 2021 special session of the legislature. You can see the statute on the Virginia Law portal at https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title19.2/chapter16/section19.2-270.4:1/#:~:text=%C2%A7%2019.2-270.4%3A1.%20Storage%2C%20preservation%20and%20retention,of%20human%20biological%20evidence%20in%20felony%20cases.
You should be able to file a written motion to rescind the Protective Order and have that motion docketed. The date the motion can be heard may be a bit far out though, because many courts are even more backed up then normal due to the COVID-19 shutdown last year.
You don't actually ask a question here. I strongly recommend you consult with an attorney in a private setting rather than write about what happened in a public forum. It sounds like you may find yourself facing charges if you aren't already.
You are correct. If you successfully completed the first offender program for drug cases, the case was dismissed and you have not been convicted. However, the fact you were arrested still shows up on your record and can easily be discovered by anyone who runs a background check.
Talk to a lawyer in your area about whether you should demand a jury trial in circuit court.
I agree. You really need to discuss this in a secret setting with an attorney. Do not post any details to this forum. Many criminal defense attorneys provide free consultations. If you cannot afford to hire an attorney, ask the court to appoint someone to represent you.
