My Court appointed Attorney says that he can not get my DUS charge dropped at all, to driving without license or anything I guess. I have sent in everything needed to get a hardship license. DMV told me they have everything that they needed, just ...
If you can get your license reinstated within 60 days of the driving conduct, you can move the Court to dismiss the DUS count. Sometimes if you get your license reinstated after the 60-day timeline, the prosecutor may amend the charge to no license in possession under NDCC 39-06-16 ($20 traffic ticket, no points) or no license in possession under NDCC 39-06-01 ($20 traffic ticket, 4 points). If you can't get your license reinstated, there are very few defenses to DUS. Either you were driving or you weren't. Either your license suspended or it wasn't. The only other real defense is if you were driving to prevent serious bodily injury or death. If none of those defenses apply, then your lawyer is 100% correct.See question

You have two options: (1) do nothing - let the warrant linger. Undoubtedly, they will catch you when you least expect it and when it is the least convenient for you. You will be arrested. Your bail will be high. The longer you're an absconder, the more difficult it will be for your lawyer to get you a relatively favorable outcome. (2) turn yourself in. Face the music. Make a warrant appearance. Your bail will still be high, but probably not as high as it would be if you abscond for a lengthy period of time. Your attorney may still be able to explain the non-reporting conduct, depending on how long you didn't report as directed. There may be options that don't include jail. There may even be options that don't even involve a formal revocation of your probation, which will result in the loss of any dispositional benefits you obtained at the time of sentencing (e.g., deferred imposition of sentence or misdemeanor-by-disposition).
The two most serious violations a probationer can have are committing a new crime while on probation or absconding (failing to report or blowing off probation). You need to take care of this sooner rather than later. Good luck.See question
Was found guilty to these charges. Plea bargain was five years in prison. Was not told this judgment was considered aggravated, but now that in jail considered medium security because they say the reckless was aggravated. Doesn't say violent o...
If you're asking if they are 85% crimes under NDCC 12.1-32-09.1, the answer is NO, they are not 85% crimes. With the reckless endangerment charge, there are two versions: a class C felony for cases involving "circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to the value of human life." Otherwise, it's a class A misdemeanor. In that sense, the felony reckless endangerment is "aggravated." The criminal vehicular injury is either an A felony or a C felony, and carries with it a minimum mandatory penalty of at least a year, but in some circumstances, at least 10 years. It looks like the conviction was for the C felony version with the 1-year minimum mandatory penalty. A person typically won't be parole eligible during the minimum mandatory period.
As for the medium classification, there are a number of factors that weigh into that decision. The single most important consideration is the LSI-R score. That may or may not be a result of the current conviction as opposed to prior criminal history. The classification may move depending upon completion of treatment, etc. Good luck.See question

I have a non extradition felony warrent out of California from six years ago. Doe's it bar me from having firearms. I know I can't buy one from a dealer, but what about private sale. Me and my wife wanted to go hunting this year. She owns a rifle.
Under federal law, yes, you are barred from possessing firearms as a "fugitive from justice." Clear up the warrant if you want to possess guns.See question

i am 16 years old my boyfriend is 21 im am almost a senior in highschool and i was wondering can he still get in trouble if we get married and can we get married?
A 5 year difference may not seem like much if you're 40, but at age 16, it matters. Wait until you're at least 18.See question

Trying to apply for citizenship. I checked my records and found that I have 9 on my file. Petty misdemeanor and a misdemeanor.
Immigration law is complicated. You need a good lawyer to help you navigate this issue. Whether your petty misdemeanors and misdemeanor on your record will give you problems will largely depend on what they were for, when they occurred, how they were resolved, and what your current immigration status is. Certain crimes, even misdemeanors, can make you inadmissible and potentially removable. Others can affect your "good moral character" for a period of time but not necessarily your admissibility. Find a good immigration lawyer and talk BEFORE you submit an application.See question
