Every inmate has a counselor that assists them with questions like these. I assure you he can find his present "wrap date" or date of release. These sometimes change with credits, depending on length of sentence, but if it's this close he should be able to find out the date through his counselor.See question
I got pulled over for driving uninsured. Is it an automatic license suspension?
In cases like this it is worthwhile to have an attorney with you at court to work out the charges with the DA. As the others have said, most DA's will resolve the case with court costs. Having someone know what to ask for and how to present it is always helpful. Try to have proof of insurance with you on the court date.See question
When I was 17 I purchased cars and attached plates instead of registration since I had no license .
More than likely you will have to deal with these if they are open cases. Most often the RMV puts a hold on license renewals when you have open cases or warrants. I suggest that you hire a lawyer or contact the court to see if they were dismissed or are still pending.See question
The cop clocked my speed by driving close to me. It was night and hilly area. I was in the left most lane but there were people ahead of me in the same lane and the police officer was driving behind me. I saw someone following so moved to right la...
Arguing that you were not speeding, I agree, is most often a losing argument. The best place to win any speeding ticket is at the first hearing before a clerk-magistrate (in Massachusetts). An experienced attorney can craft a defense for you at that level and ask that you be found not responsible (dismissed). If you lose at that level you can appeal to a Judge and then you would have an opportunity to cross examine the officer. In Massachusetts (not sure of other states) the officer who cited you is not even present at the first hearing, Bottom line is your odds are much better with an experienced attorney at the first appeal.See question
son is in prison, his mother wants to see him but is denied visitation. son is in protection custody.
Chances are he is in segregation for his own protection or for a violation. Contact the prison officials or advocates to see when he will be available. If he is in protective custody because of a charge against him then his attorney should be able to assist you. Each jail has advocates that can assist you so if you don't want to contact the lawyer then use the advocates.See question
Something popped up on my phone just last night telling me that I was being charged with child pornography and they blocked my phone. I would like to know how and why this happened, also how I can fix this problem before it gets worse
This is a VIRUS and and internet scam. Social apps suspend your account for child porn and then notify the police who come to pay you a visit. They will question you and/or seize your phone and other devices. They would not notify you this way.See question
My grandparents are going away this winter and their house will be unoccupied with the car in the garage. I'm thinking about driving it to school every day while they are gone. What would happen if I got pulled over driving their car with only a p...
You are operating without a license and subject to arrest and your vehicle will be towed by the police. You will have to get a licensed driver to recover the car, your grandparents will lose trust in you and you will need to pay a lawyer some money to get you out of this. Finally your insurance will increase. Glad you asked before you did this because it's just not a good decision any way you look at it.See question

You are correct in thinking that the officer's first impression is that the person who called the police is the "victim". Fortunately well trained police officers will immediately split the two of you up and question you separately to ascertain the true story. You will have an opportunity to tell your side of the story at that time and then, if arrested, your attorney will be able to poke holes in the the other story and solidify yours through cross examination of the officers who will be testifying.See question
I receive a speeding ticket in Fairfax County Virginia which I heard is notorious for giving out speed tickets. I am from Alabama, and I am only here for my pre-deployment training. I was driving 49 mph on a 35 mph zone. I was hoping that the o...
I advise all of my clients to contact their insurance company and ask them how much this ticket will cost them in increased insurance premiums over the next few years if they do not contest it. That should be your first call. In Massachusetts you lose good driver credits for certain offense and it ends up costing you literally THOUSANDS of dollars over the next couple of years in increased premiums. If that is the case in your state then it is absolutely worth it to hire an experienced attorney who handles traffic ticket defense. All too often people rely on "internet questions" that get them nowhere with the court. A local attorney can be very helpful in your defense and knows what it takes to get your ticket dismissed. Do the math and then make your decision. A decent attorney runs between $750 to $1250 depending on the charge. Be careful of internet attorneys who take your case and then "farm" you out to inexperienced attorneys to handle your case. Ask your attorney if he or she will be the attorney that will be with you in court. Talk to the attorney and ask them what kind of results they have and beware of anyone who "guarantees" you a victory. If you are not satisfied then keep looking for the local attorney who will be standing next to you when it counts. It's your money and your driving record.See question
Our son takes a Schedule II medication to control his ADHD. We have reason to believe hes selling it to a dealer. He's had to have it refilled early 2 months in a row, and he received a text yesterday that said, "are you bringing the 5 tomorrow?" ...
Your son is committing the crime of distributing drigs and the best thing you can do is to contact a reliable attorney who can sit down with both you and your son and explain the consequences to him before he gets caught. Police officers routinely check text messages and track the supplier of the drugs and people arrested are often quick to give up their source to help themselves. Your child obviously has not thoought this out and an experienced attorney can stop this before he gets arrested and charges with a drug crime. Call an attorney BEFORE you call the police.See question
