My SIS probation is in another county and I only have 6 months left. I got a citation to appear in municipal court for a possession charge. Is that a violation? Who would report it, seeing as I don't have anybody to report 2?
In general, any violation of the law is a violation of probation, whether it happens in municipal court or county circuit court.
When you pleaded guilty and received the SIS/probation deal, the judge gave you a document stating the conditions of your probation, which may state that you are required to notify the court if you violate probation. If you don't report your probation violation to the court yourself, the court will eventually discover your current possession charge even though it's in a different county. After the Prosecutor discovers that you violated probation, he or she will file a motion to revoke your probation and there will be a hearing before the judge, who will determine whether to revoke your probation and sentence you for the original offense.
In the meantime, I strongly recommend that you hire an experienced attorney to represent you for your current possession charge.See question
My mom's dating this guy who's license is cancelled. He swears up and down that it can be fixed. Is that true. If so, how?
If his Missouri driver's license has been revoked or suspended, he should call the Missouri Dept. of Revenue at (573) 751-4475 and ask why he was suspended, when is he eligible for reinstatement, and what do they require him to do to get reinstated, such as pay a reinstatement fee, pay unpaid ticket fines, complete SATOP, etc. -- it just depends on why he was suspended.
If he is currently eligible for reinstatement but is suspended because of unpaid traffic tickets, he can hire a traffic ticket lawyer to get his tickets reduced to non-moving, no-point violations. In some cases, an experienced traffic ticket lawyer can withdraw a driver's guilty plea for an old ticket and get that ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point violation which will lift the suspension or revocation.See question

I agree with attorney Hardin -- the police don't have to read you your rights even if they arrest you, unless they are going to question you in police custody.

I suggest that you review your court paperwork (plea agreement, order of probation) or contact the attorney who represented you if you have questions about the plea bargain deal. The conditions of your probation probably state that you must agree to submit to random drug testing.See question

I agree with attorney Campbell's answer.
It sure sounds like you are determined to represent yourself at trial, but just FYI - you can hire a traffic ticket lawyer for a relatively low flat fee who will get your ticket amended to a non-moving, no-point infraction that won't affect your driving record or insurance rates.See question

Yes, it sounds like you have been charged with stealing. You did not receive a traffic ticket-- the police issued a citation for stealing. The citation is the same form the police use for other charges such as traffic tickets. The Prosecutor has up to 1 year from the date of the incident (for misdemeanors) to charge you. You will need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you.See question

I am going to court but need to make sure Incase they do I'll be ready.
It's very unlikely that Kansas will come and pick you up for a misdemeanor warrant. But if you have a felony warrant in Kansas, Missouri will hold you until Kansas comes to pick you up. The simplest way to solve this is to hire an attorney (a criminal defense attorney who is licensed in both Kansas & Missouri would be best) to take care of the warrants for you and represent you for the underlying charges.See question
