Hospital press charges even with the mothers consent
Your girlfriend's mom cannot prevent charges from being filed if the police are notified and the DA chooses to file statutory rape charges (consent is not a defense). However, your girlfriend and her mom do have some power, i.e., they may have an influence on the DA that could cause the DA to file less serious charges (to avoid mandatory sex offender registration), and to reduce other sentencing consequences. If police are notified, know that neither you, nor your girlfriend, nor your mom, have to speak with them. In fact, you should not speak with anyone in law enforcement unless you have an attorney present. Be very careful of what you say to anyone, including on this forum as this is not a confidential communication.See question
1 years ago I got a dui & I finish all the dui classes & finish my 10 A/A meeting just don't pay the fine , now I got the dui warrant
You will need to appear in court, before the Judge, to have the warrant recalled. Failure to pay the fine on time is technically a violation of probation, but if this is your first offense, and first probation violation, most Judges will recall the warrant, and give you additional time to pay the fine. Depending on your particular circumstances and court, you could face additional punishment. As such, you should consult with an attorney for more specific advice and to help you in court.See question

You cannot prevent a prosecutor from filing charges if they want to prosecute you, but sometimes, a lawyer can assist you and the prosecutor BEFORE charges are filed to prevent charges from being filed. Each case is unique and whether a lawyer can prevent charges from being filed depends on the individual case and the quality of that lawyer.
It is crucial to know that anything you say, whether orally, in writing (in your own diary, in a text, or on a public website such as AVVO.com, etc) it can be used against you and/or your boyfriend to pursue criminal charges and a conviction.
Take care.See question

Consult with an immigration attorney before pleading to anything. While criminal attorneys are supposed to be knowledgeable about immigration consequences, the real specialists are immigration attorneys and they are in the best position to advise you. Some prosecutors are willing to allow pleas to different charges that could help you if there are immigration consequences. A letter from an immigration attorney about those consequences could make a huge difference in the outcome of your criminal case.See question
Ex girlfriend is harassing me and threatening to call my job and get me fired and cause a scene at my work. Also she says she took naked pictures of me while sleeping and is going to post them on the Internet... what can I do??? Can I get a restra...
I recommend hiring an attorney to assist you with filing the restraining order. The sooner you do this, the better chance you have at getting it granted. As for the naked pictures, unless you can prove she did this, as opposed to just threaten that she did this, you do not have a case other than for the harassment - which is primarily a civil matter.See question

There's a chance I'm just going to pay him and go down in flames anyways
Take the wise advise of Mr. Dane.
$2,500 is inexpensive for a felony hit and run . Most lawyers charge much more, but price doesn't always mean you have a good (or bad) lawyer. Just make sure whoever represents you is good. Meet with other attorneys if you aren't sure and do your homework.See question

A field Interview Card is a small card that contains basic information the officer gathered from his/her interview at the scene. It is usually a brief summary. The card remains on file at the police department. If there are incidents in the future, the card can be accessed by the prosecution or defense for information of prior bad acts and/or for a future filing of charges. However, this does not mean that the prosecutor can't/won't file charges against you for this conduct.See question
