So I had a background check done for Uber and their background check company found a open warrant in my name from 2004 in the state of Maryland. Currently I live in CA and have since 2004(this is my home state). I have had multiple background che...
You cannot simply get a warrant removed because you do not live in Maryland. It could have been issued because you did not appear for court or violated your probation. You can look it up at Maryland Judiciary Case Search.
You can hire an attorney to file a motion to recall the warrant, which is often granted, and have the case set for trial. You would then gave to come to Maryland for your court date and the attorney would defend you on the charge.See question
Hello, I recently got a speeding ticket (driving 60 in 45mph) zone in VA because it was the first time I was driving in the area. Will this traffic violation give me points on my license? I have a clean driving record.
If you have a Maryland driver's license and you pay the ticket, the speeding conviction will appear on your record, but no points will be assessed. Your insurance rates should not be affected since no points will be issued. However, if you get a ticket in the future and go to court, the judge will see the conviction and it could impact whether you get probation before judgment.
Before deciding whether to pay the ticket, you should consult with a Virginia attorney to see if paying the ticket will cause problems in Virginia. Virginia's laws are different than ours and certain high speed tickets are criminal misdemeanors.See question
My brother-in-law asked me to take him to work which is approximately 5 minutes away. I decided to drive my wife's vehicle and I completely forgot that my wallet was in my vehicle. Police pulled me over because the front tag on my wife's car was d...
You should be able to beat the driving without a license charge easily if you had a valid license. Bring your license to court along with a certified copy of your driving record which will show your license is valid. Driving without a license requires that you not have a license at the time of the stop. (The officer should have charged you with failure to display a license which only carries a small fine).
This should be a slam dunk.See question
In October of 2016 I was arrested for 2nd degree assault. I appeared in court with a private lawyer in January of 2017. My case made stet and i was told to complete anger management. I have completed my anger management. However, I have not been a...
The stet can be expunged after three years. The stet means that the case was placed on the inactive docket and never went to trial. It can be reopened within one year for any reason and between one and three years for good cause. A stet is not a conviction because the case never went to court.
The stet appears on Maryland Judiciary Case Search and can be discovered by others. However, it should not impact your ability to get a job since it is not a conviction and never went to court.See question
Three of my buddies and I were sitting next to the train tracks in Ellicott City. We are all 19 year old males and had opened beer bottles next to us. I did not have a sip of the alcohol and nor did I (or any of us) get a breathalyzer test. This...
Many times the prosecutor will offer community service and/or an alcohol education program in exchange for dropping the charge or a stet. An attorney could attempt to negotiate such a deal.See question
Got arrested for 2nd degree assault for the first time
You can check Maryland Judiciary Case Search or your terms and conditions of probation given to you by the judge. If you picked up a new charge while on probation, you face a Violation of Probation hearing and should retain an attorney for both charges.See question
I received a criminal trespass warning from a large mall for the next year. If I return and I am arrested for trespassing, what is the likely penalty? This would be 1st offense
You will be charged with the crime of trespass and face having a criminal record and possible jail time. You could be arrested, placed in handcuffs, and taken to the police station. If you are on probation at the time of the offense, you face a Violation of Probation hearing for the original charge which can also result in possible jail time. If you were caught shoplifting and the merchant did not pursue charges, they could decide now to pursue those charges. Do not go to the mall.See question
