There were no fees or court cost....just concerned it might remain on her driving record.
The ticket will show up on a background check, e.g., for employment, etc. It will show up as a dismissed case. An expungement seals the record so that it does not show up. The real question is whether it's worth the time, effort, and money to seek an expungement. Most people would not care about a speeding ticket, but might take a different view of either reckless driving or DUI. You might want to speak with an Alabama attorney about the pros and cons of expungement in this individual case.See question

Have to take alcohol test today
It depends on the type of test they use. It is very likely that a metabolite of alcohol is still in your system. However, it is less likely that there would still be significant alcohol in your breath.See question
I have a warrant in the county
I assume you are asking if a warrant will show up on a background check. The short answer is "usually." It all depends on the company doing the background check. With that in mind, a warrant can make your life a constant struggle of looking over your shoulder. You should speak with an attorney about getting the warrant resolved.See question
I went to my arraignment and the judge said the arresting officers did not turn in their paperwork on the case so the judge dismissed the case and said he would not allow the case to come back through. So is the case completely over or can I still...
If I understand your question, the District Court judge determined that the paperwork necessary to support the charge against you was not filed in a timely fashion. Based on that, he or she dismissed your case.
THIS IS NOT THE END OF THE CASE.
The District Attorney can still present your case to the grand jury for consideration. If the grand jury hands down an indictment, you would be re-arrested and set for further court proceedings.
Sometimes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. You may wish to speak with an attorney before any type of indictment issues so that you can move forward immediately if there is an indictment.See question
I'm in Alabama and I am awaiting trial. What if I'm supposed to be deployed soon to. In the armed forces and I have a job and got my ged. Will that look good to the judge. Will I be tried as an adult
It is not possible to answer your question completely without knowing more facts about the case. Obviously, a felony conviction will prohibit you from serving in the military, but in certain circumstances, even a youthful offender adjudication may complicate your plans for the military.
You should speak with an attorney who is experienced in criminal defense about your case. Once that attorney understands the nature of the charge, the underlying allegations, your criminal and social history, and the other "intangibles" that come with every case, he or she can best advise you as to what course of conduct to take.See question
I didn't have the money at the time
Like most courts in the state of Alabama, the Baldwin County courts will consider a missed drug screening to be a failed drug screening. It is likely that they may seek a sanction. Depending on your probation order, which you received at the time of sentencing, you may qualify for a minor sanction or a full probation sanction. A full probation sanction may include termination of probation.
I strongly suggest you contact an attorney to assist you with this.See question

Convictions cannot be the subject of expungement. Expungement in Alabama is limited to cases which terminated in dismissal, no bill, acquittal, or successful drug/veterans' court completion.See question
I have a friend that was just charged with first degree hindering prosecution for helping her son escape how much time can she get for the charge
As mentioned before, Hindering Prosecution in the First Degree is a Class C felony which carries up to 10 years imprisonment. More importantly, a felony conviction will follow your friend for the rest of her life. Even a charge, without a conviction, can be damaging to reputation and cause difficulty with background checks. It is extremely important that your friend speak with an attorney immediately. In most cases, the sooner an attorney gets to work on the case, the better the eventual outcome. Moreover, things in Baldwin County are probably going to get a lot tougher in the immediate future. I strongly recommend that your friend consult an attorney immediately.See question

It is possible that the clerk of court will assign you a new court date. With that being said, it is always better to have the assistance of an attorney in any criminal proceeding. If you cannot afford attorney, in other words if your are indigent, the court may appoint an attorney to assist you. If you are not indigent, you should hire a local attorney to assist you with this.See question
