Okay, I'm on felony bond. I have to report to a p.o 3 times a week and take a urine test each time I report. Due to work and working overtime it causes me to miss sometimes once a week. I explained to the p.o my situation and he blows me off every...
You should consult the lawyer you have. If you lack confidence in your lawyer, you should contact another lawyer directly. Generally speaking, you are on a pretty tight leash when on felony bond. You need to find a way to not miss your drops. Judge's don't have a lot of sympathy. That being said, if you can show that you are clean and explain your circumstances you may be able to keep your bond as it currently stands. You'll have to change your routine going forward though. Certain drug panels can look backward and you may be able to demonstrate no substance abuse.See question
I was arrested for a dwi. I didn't blow. So I lost my drivers for a year. They took blood test, but I never got a ticket. They said something about getting a letter? I thought they would give me a dwi ticket on the spot? I was released the next mo...
The officer that arrested you should have given you a form 4323- it is a sheet of paper that is both a notice of your license revocation and serves as a 15 day temporary driving permit. Contact a lawyer right away. They can likely get you an order from a judge to keep you driving. You have a limited amount of time to appeal your license loss and preserve video evidence from your arrest.See question

You will need to hire an attorney to appear on your behalf. They can continue the case and help you resolve it once you get back. Generally speaking, it is not a problem for your attorney to appear on behalf and get your court date extended so that you can complete your travels. High speed tickets are more difficult to fix than normal traffic tickets, but they can usually be kept off your record if handled right.See question

Your lawyer did a good job for you. I suggest calling your lawyer before you call the court clerk. Send your lawyer a copy of the letter you recieved, and let your lawyer speak with the clerk. It helps avoid confusion.See question
My brother is in federal custody now. He has back up time for the state and has to be sentenced for federal also.
"Attorney conflict" likely means that the attorney had a trial in another county or other serious matter requiring an appearance at that same time and the court approved a continuance for that reason. "Defendant not available" is not typically a reason given, but if someone is facing federal charges and was not available for state court due to something going on in federal court that may be a likely description.See question
I just received my third DWI and just wanted to prepare myself for the outcome I also have a child that I have partial custody of and was wondering if his father could get full custody if I were to go to prison.
If you fight your case you may not do any prison or jail time. You should meet with a qualified attorney today to determine the past path forward. I also agree with Mr. Fry's answer. You have both criminal and family law concerns.See question

I was pulled over for speeding on US 36 (I-72) just close to Hamilton and called to appear in court in Caldwell County next month. Is there any chance that I will have to go to Jail in Caldwell County? The Sheriff said I passed him at 19 mph over ...
Generally speaking, if you receive a ticket for more than 23 mph over the speed limit there is a chance you could have to do jail time. I strongly recommend meeting with a local attorney experienced in traffic matters. I also recommend not picking the cheapest lawyer. You need someone to work some magic for you. I have had clients in similar situations avoid jail. You will want a lawyer familiar with your local courts on this one.See question
