Yes, this is both a criminal offense and a violation of the Peace Order. Print out the posts to preserve them. You can file criminal charges with the Commissioner and also file for a violation of the Peace Order in the Peace Order case.See question
Never been charged with any criminal charges or felonies. What is my chances of going to jail for stealing money.
It depends on the facts and circumstances behind the theft as well as the amount of money that was taken. Do not post any more details on AVVO since this is a public forum and anything you post can be used against you.

I was charged with a third DUI in Maryland 11/2016. The last DUI was in Maryland also, 4/2002.
The judge can look at any prior convictions or probation before judgment in determining your sentence. It will help that it had been 14 years since the last one, but you could very well go to jail if you are convicted.
You need an attorney to represent you. You also should enter a treatment program to show the judge you are getting help for your problem.See question

If you received probation before judgment, you can get your record expunged. Contact an attorney to discuss the expungement process.
If you were convicted, you cannot get the conviction reduced to a misdemeanor at this point. You could seek a pardon from the governor although these are rarely granted.See question
Didn't know I violated and now want to get a tx dl
First, you should hire an attorney in Maryland to file a Motion to Recall the Warrant. If the motion is granted, the warrant will be recalled and the case set for trial. The attorney can then defend you on the underlying charge. Otherwise, you can be arrested on the warrant at any time and detained in Texas until Maryland decides if it will come and get you.
You would need to consult with a Texas attorney on the issue of obtaining your license there. If your license is suspended in Maryland, I doubt that Texas will issue you a license.See question
I'm now finding out their insurance wasn't enough so now i'm in danger of having my license suspended. What can I do?
I have never heard of a bank taking out their own car insurance. You can check your paperwork to see if it says anything about that. If it is not writing, it will be almost impossible to prove that they are responsible.
If you are being fined for not carrying the minimum limits of insurance required by law, you should immediately procure the necessary insurance and then work out a payment arrangement to pay the fines. This should prevent your license from being suspended. Every day you do not comply with the compulsory insurance law additional fines accrue.See question
My sister signed and deposited my financial aid check into her account without my permission. The check amount was between 600 to 700. She also has a 1 year old child.
Your sister could be charged with forgery and theft which are serious crimes. If there is a custody battle, a conviction might affect the custody decision. Your sister would have to consult with an attorney concerning both issues. You could have charges filed against your sister.See question
I am 18 and I have not been convicted on anything , but I have two open adult cases in Virginia as well but I have no criminal record just juvenile
These are extremely serious charges and you need an attorney to represent you. If you cannot afford a private attorney, you should contact the Public Defender as soon as possible and no later than 10 business days before the court date. The juvenile matters do not affect you and the Virginia cases will only affect you if you are convicted there first. However, a Maryland conviction will affect a potential sentence in Virginia.
There are numerous factors that will affect a potential sentence in this case. None of us know the facts surrounding the charges. You should not post any details on AVVO since this is a public forum and anything you post might be used against you. Discuss your case with an attorney in a confidential setting.See question
There was an agreement to nol pros my case after one year. The complainant said he didn't want it dismissed for three years. The ASA refused to honor the agreement.
You need to get a CD recording of the original court proceeding. If the State's Attorney promised to nol pros the case after one year on the recording, then you should hire an attorney. I assume a stet was entered in your case. Your attorney may be able to reopen the case to force the State to honor its agreement.See question
