I got a traffic ticket reduced after hiring a lawyer and the charge is now a non moving violation. The court fees were due within 20 days of the court date. Today, is the 20th day. I am a teacher and with the crazyness of exams 20 days slipped by ...
It's possible, but not likely, that a warrant went out. As a practical matter, someone has to issue it, and frankly most clerk's offices have too much work going on to issue noncompliance warrants right when the office opens.
It's more likely that you will be reported to DMV for noncompliance, which means that you will have an additional $50 fee to pay, in addition to the court costs and the $20 installment fee for not paying immediately.
Send your friend to pay it off, and have him/her ask about whether that satisfies everything. I would then double check it a week or so later with the clerk.See question
First time for anything on my record. Why are the charges still there? It was 10 years ago.
You may be eligible to expunge the arrest record. I wouldn't try to do it myself. Most lawyers would charge a reasonable fee for that. I've seen too many people try to handle things themselves over the years with unpleasant results.See question
This was my daughters first fight and here in Nc they make you talk to a juvenile counselor who determined on the spot that this did not need to go to court and was very impressed by my daughter. Once everything was done at the juvenile office...
A subpoena is just a mechanism to summon a witness to court; it doesn't reflect badly on your daughter or mean that she's in any trouble. Take a look at who issued it; call that person (likely an assistant district attorney) and find out more about what is needed. It's good to make contact in advance so that they have your phone number etc. and can call you in case a case is rescheduled.See question
i had a larceny charge drop a few months ago and i have not been in any trouble this happen in north carolina
You should talk to a local attorney about this to determine whether you have any defenses to the charges. Alternatively, it is possible that you might qualify for some type of diversion program, depending on your record.See question
Could I get my license back by paying those fines and getting new court dates for those Failure to Appears??
I agree largely with Dustin. One thing to consider - and your question isn't clear on this - is what charges you have failures to appear on. I've see people get their license back and then plead guilty to one of the pending charges and lose their license again.
If you plead guilty to Driving While License Revoked, or to any moving violation that occurred while you were in a state of revocation or suspension (for failing to appear, failing to pay fines, or any other reason) then you will have your license suspended again. A prayer for judgment continued may help, depending on your circumstances.
Paying unpaid fines won't hurt you and you should do that as soon as possible. Past that, it's easy to mess up a license - you ought to at least talk to a traffic attorney before you go to court.See question
17 year old boy took 9 checks from his fathers dresser and wrote each of them out for money in a range of 60-100 on each check.
There's no way to say for sure without knowing more about the facts. On a general note, crimes of dishonesty such as these will kill future chances for employment - keep in mind that North Carolina treats those 16 and older as adults. He should talk to a local criminal defense attorney to discuss possible defenses, outcomes, the possibility of a deferred prosecution program, etc.See question
I have 112 hours due by the 4th and its hard for me to finish because me and my wife just had our baby and then a week later our car breaks down. I was charged with possession by false pretense, what do I need to do for an extension?
I'd start by talking to the program coordinator, telling him or her the situation, and seeing whether he or she might help you get an extension given your circumstances. If that doesn't work, you should consult a local defense attorney.
Also, you should try to do as many hours as possible between now and the 4th. If you are showing effort you will be more likely to get an extension.See question
I am on unsupervised probation in NC, for 2nd degree trespass, and resist public officer. I was wondering if there is anyway i can get off early so that i can join the military.
If you've completed all your requirements, there's no rule against it. It really depends on your district's policies regarding that. I've done it for clients without much difficulty; however, other counties may have different policies.
The best thing you can do is talk to an attorney in the county where you are on probation.See question
I've been charged with "assault on a female" and "false imprisonment." This happened when my ex attempted to take my dog. I told her not to leave with the dog. When she tried to leave with the dog, she tried to run across the couch. I grabbed her ...
Yes, imprisonment is possible for this, even with a clean record.
You need to get an attorney as soon as possible. Don't assume that because she privately tells you that some of the accusations are false that she will admit this in court. Also, be careful what you post online in describing your situation; grabbing an ankle as described would possibly be enough of a factual basis to support a conviction for assault on a female.
Take these charges seriously. Talk to a lawyer tomorrow.See question
What type of lawyer do I need to hire due to the harassing of my ex wife? If she does not get her way we are bombarded with angry, nasty, name calling emails and phone calls. My wife and I have had enough. We wish that any contact be only about...
I suggest either talking to an attorney. Also, document all contact from her - keep the texts, voice mails, etc. At some point you may want to talk to a magistrate about whether or not the harassment rises to the level of certain misdemeanor offenses such as communicating threats or harassing phone calls. If so, the magistrate can issue criminal process for her and will assign a court date. The district attorney's office would then prosecute the case.See question
