I was pulled over for "disregarding a red light" in Virginia. The roads were covered in sleet and as I approached the intersection the light turned yellow. I attempted to brake however my brakes gave out and I slid over the white intersection line...
You will need to go to court in Virginia to fight the ticket. A guilty finding in Virginia will result in a 180 day suspension and start the nine months over again. You should discuss how to fight the ticket with a Virginia attorney and see if you can get the case postponed. .
A conviction or PBJ if Virginia has such a thing would count as a violation. One strategy is to attempt to get your regular license before you go to court in Virginia if the nine month waiting period is up in time. However, the MVA will still attempt to suspend you for 180 days for a third offense on a provisional if you are convicted or receive a PBJ. You can fight the suspension at a hearing.See question

There is no way to know. There could only be one officer if the underlying charge was relatively minor. You can look up some warrants at Maryland Judiciary Case Search. Note that arrest warrants will not appear there.See question
I have an FTA in MD for a court date I have a medical reason for missing. I also moved out of state before the court date was set, and had no knowledge of missing the date until a sheriff's deputy called me. He suggested writing the judge (the or...
Your best bet would be to hire an attorney to file a motion to recall the warrant. The attorney can contact the State's Attorney before filing the motion and request that they consent. The State's Attorney is more likely to respond to an attorney.
If the State consents, the judge is likely to grant the motion especially if you are represented by counsel since it shows the judge you have gone to the expense of hiring an attorney.
If you cannot afford an attorney, the only thing you can do is to call or fax the State's Attorney asking for their consent and explaining the situation.See question
My husband has a ticket he needs to get taken care of in Maryland but we live in NC. Could he get added on the court docket to take care of it early?
Generally, he will not be able to get the ticket added to the court docket. The only exception is where the State's Attorney agrees to drop the charges and agrees to add it to a docket. This is rare and is usually done where the State has insufficient evidence of the crime.See question
My HUSBAND got a Fta for a DWLR in 2007 and is trying to get his license back and needs to find out the best way to take care of this ticket in one day? He does have a warrant now but since we reside in NC we only have 1 day to take care of the ch...
I am not sure what DWLR is, but it is a serious traffic violation that carries possible jail time because there is a warrant. He can hire an attorney to file a motion to recall the warrant. If the warrant is recalled, the suspension by the MVA will be lifted and his case will be set for trial. He will need to be at the trial date, but this would only require one trip to Maryland.
There is no way for him to turn himself in and have the case resolved that day. In fact, he may have to post bond to be released depending upon the circumstances.See question
I had a drink the night before and blew a fail the next morning.
It depends whether anything is reported back to the judge and the nature of the terms and conditions of probation. If the judge finds out that you had a failure and you were ordered to abstain from alcohol, you could be violated. It would be best to discuss with an attorney in a confidential setting if you are concerned.See question
I got a speeding ticket (TA_21-802-1) for exceeding speed in a work zone. I received PBJ about 2 months ago for a previous speeding ticket. I currently have no points on my driving record. What happens to my PBJ if I just pay the ticket?
This is a 1 point ticket unless it contributed to an accident in which case it is 3 points. Unless there were conditions to your prior PBJ for a length of time such as no tickets for a year (which is very rarely done), your prior PBJ will not be affected.
Having said that, you may want to still request a trial and not a waiver hearing. The police officer may not appear in which case you will be acquitted. You may get a sympathetic judge who gives you another PBJ.See question
He is in the Army Reserves he was on leave after graduating boot camp. He was with friends that did this he did not do it he video taped it and posted in online. They also have his race as African American which he is not he is Caucasian does that...
Each count carries a maximum penalty of 60 days in jail and a $500.00 fine. He obviously needs a lawyer to defend these charges. The mistake about his race could help if the perpetrator was African American since it would prove his innocence.
If he was there and videotaped it, they could try to claim that he was a co-conspirator and participating in the crime even if he did not do the damage. He should discuss the charges with a lawyer in a confidential setting.See question
My grandsons mom is accusing my son (the father) of spitting in her face and is saying that she filed charges. She isn't saying he hit her only the spitting which is bad enough. She claims to have filed charges on march 5th. However my son spoke t...
No one can say for sure whether the charge will be by warrant or Summons. Typically, one would expect a Summons on these facts, but you do not know what she claims happened. A new charge could result in a violation. You can check Maryland Judiciary Case Search periodically although arrest warrants will not appear there.See question
Hi , my Aunt will be giving me a 2001 Ford EXPEDITION for a gift. Problem is I have a insurance voilation from way back. I haven't had a car since because of it.. it was high back then.. Can't remember how much. And does it continue to accumulate....
You can try to register the truck with the MVA. If your account is flagged, they will not let your register it.
If that happens, you can fight the insurance violation by attaching proof the vehicle was repossessed and not driven during the time period. You can submit affidavits and documentation from the lienholder and the fines can be reduced or waived.
If they will not waive all of the fines, you will need to work out a payment plan with the MVA in order to get your tags.See question
