While driving my girlfriend's car in Utah I was pulled over due to license plate light being out when the officer smelled unburned marijuana. He searched the car and found a few grams and paraphernalia. He allowed me to leave with just the citation.
You should speak to a criminal defense attorney licensed in Utah. There are likely several options for dealing with the case depending on the circumstances and it might even be possible to deal with the case without you having to come back to Utah to do it. An experienced Utah criminal defense lawyer should be able to help you out.See question
I am under a plea in abeyance for domestic violence I forgot to pay a court fee and was issued a cash only bail can that violate my plea in abeyance
Yes. Generally speaking, if the unpaid fees are for the plea in abeyance costs, the court could likely violate that agreement. If the fees are for a different case, being late on those fees would not generally be a violation of most plea in abeyance terms.
You should talk to a lawyer about the specifics of your case and figure out the best plan of action to get the warrant recalled and keep the plea in abeyance.See question

I would advise anyone in your situation to hire a competent experienced attorney. But since your job and potentially your real estate license are at stake, you absolutely need to find and hire a good attorney to assist you. Voyeurism can be an offense requiring sex offender registration in Utah, (depending on the level of offense). A good lawyer ought to be able to help you avoid or at least minimize the serious consequences you mention.See question

Over 35 years ago I received a fine in Utah and my probation officer actually told me if I leave the state that they would not only not come after me but not ask for the fine...is this right
It certainly may be right. Often what happens is that courts issue warrants for failing to comply with their orders like paying a fine. If a warrant was issued for you years ago, that warrant has to be periodically reviewed by the court that issued it and the court has to decide whether to reissue it. The court could very well have given up on reissuing the warrant, the court could have sent an unpaid fine to the state debt collection office or the court could have re-issued the warrant. To know for sure what was done, you would need to contact that court and see if they have any information. Given the age of the case, they probably will tell you that they don't have anything on your case. To know if you have any warrant outstanding, you can also search online to see if there is an active warrant issued for you.See question
What jail sentence does this carry? He has a $20,000 bail. And is this considered a federal crime? He also mentioned something about getting charged with "conspiracy of distribution" in Wyoming and came back to Utah...Thank you!
"Fugitive from Justice" is listed as a charge so that a bail and be set and a court can hold a hearing for a person who appears to be wanted in another state before that person can be returned to the demanding state. There is no prosecution for being a fugitive and he would not ever be sentenced in this state for it. The court in this state has various steps it needs to take before a person can be returned or extradited to the state where the person is wanted. Your friend may want to fight extradition if he believes he should not be wanted in the demanding state or may decide it is in his interest to waive extradition. Those decisions should be made after consulting with a lawyer. As for the conspiracy charge, it could be a state charge or possibly federal. Either way, it is likely serious and he should speak with a criminal attorney in Wyoming.See question

Most prosecutors and most of the courts in the state will work with people who have the sort of charge you describe and there are ways around the driver license suspension. I would suggest speaking with a lawyer about your specific case and would recommend that you plead not guilty until you have done so. I would be happy to speak with you about your case.See question

Your son should talk to an attorney before speaking with the police. And it is very possible that the attorney will tell your son that it is in his best interest to not speak with the police -regardless of how professional or non-intimidating they may seem.See question
