I have done everything I am supposed to do while on probation and completed everything the court has asked. But recently I borrowed 100$ from a friend and I am a few days late paying her back. She has threthened to call my PO and I need to know if...
The failure to pay a personal debt would not violate your probation. The only things like this that can violate probation are failure to pay fines, court costs, probation fees, or restitution.See question

Request a trial and not a waiver hearing. If the police officer does not appear, you will be acquitted. You gain nothing by requesting the waiver hearing. Even if the police officer does appear and you are convicted, the judge can still give you probation before judgment.See question
I got involved in employee theft and agreed to make payments to the company but then recieved a letter in the mail stating that i needed to pay way more than the company and I agreed on.
The civil demand has nothing to do with criminal charges that may be filed. Maryland law allows them to sue for up to two times the amount taken. The reality is that companies rarely sue for the civil demand and many attorneys tell their clients not to pay it. You will have to decide whether to pay it.
You should check Maryland Judiciary Case Search periodically to see if criminal charges have been filed. If you have been charged with theft, contact an attorney to represent you.See question
Son was in auto accident, where car in front was being reckless and tried to pass in a no passing zone. Seeking consultation and services for this case.
If your son was injured, he should consult with an attorney that handles automobile accident cases. Your son could make a PIP claim for medical expenses and lost wages assuming the coverage was not waived by him. He also has a bodily injury claim against the other driver.
The owner of the car (presumably you from your question) can also contact the other insurance company to repair the vehicle. They will send someone out to do an estimate of the damage. If they accept liability, you can take the estimate anywhere you want to have your car repaired and they will pay for a rental car while your car is in the shop.See question
I am already incarcerated and I get in trouble in prison, Do my lawyer still works for me.

It is a factual question for the judge or jury if the case goes to trial. Maryland is a contributory negligence state which means that if both parties are negligent, both claims are defeated. A judge or jury may find that you both contributed to the accident.
Your best option is to let the insurance companies sort it out.See question
Me and another individual in a separate vehicle were engaging in road rage, after he cut me off and tried to run me off the road. When I was able to get free from his reckless maneuvers I drove up beside him and yelled out my window. He then spit ...
Yes, it can constitute second degree assault, but an attorney would be able to help you. Do not post any more details on AVVO since this is a public forum and anything you post can be used against you. Discuss your case with an attorney in a confidential setting.See question
I was driving in Garrett county Maryland a couple days ago and was cited for exceeding speed limit - 59 in a 50 zone. The area where the police officer's cruiser was parked is private property (looks like an entrance driveway for a business) and ...
The fact that the police officer was on private property probably will not help you. Only the owner of the property or its tenants would have standing to complain about the police officer being on their property. It does not give you a defense to the speeding charge since you were on a road used by the public.
Maryland will notify Virginia of the conviction if you pay the fine. I do not know what Virginia will do with the information. If a Maryland resident got a ticket in Virginia and paid the ticket (the reverse of your situation), the conviction would appear on the Maryland record, but no points would be assessed. You should contact a Virginia attorney to see what would happen in your situation or repost your question to Virginia lawyers by listing the location as Virginia.See question
I have a friend that has a court date in Annapolis for a citation, but he lives in a different county. Is there a way he can get the case moved to his local courthouse? Or can he find out if the citation is payable and pay it?
Any charge is brought in the county where the offense takes place. It will not be moved to a different county unless he can show that he could not get a fair trial which is not the case here.
He should consult with an attorney to see if the citation can be paid and whether he should pay it. If it is a criminal charge, he will be required to appear in court.See question

It sounds like some of the charges were dismissed and some new charges were filed. No one can tell you what will happen in court because we know nothing about the case.See question
