My probation revocation hearing and aisle fed license hearing is in courtroom 201 today at 8:30 am can I be arrested if I plead not guilty to new charge. Also how can they give me a prob hearing if I haven't been found guilty of new conviction? Th...
It's pretty common to file the probation violation while the new charge is still pending. You're right, normally the judge won't take any action until they see the final result of the new charge.
It is theoretically possible to do the PV first, but it's extremely uncommon.
I have arraignment tomorrow. Pleading not guilty.
There's no one answer. Depends on the type of case, and the court that it's in. In reality, a very small number of cases actually go to trial.
Usually there is arraignment, then a pretrial hearing of some kind about a month out. At that point, if the case is going to trial, that gets set in another month or two. Complex cases may take longer for preparation.
It's not uncommon in the courts where I practice for a misdemeanor to take 4-5 months to get resolved.
I got cited with DWLS 3rd and driving on a suspended and driving without insurance. I'm on probation for DUI and DV assault 4. What do I do to have jail alternative I have an 11 month old and a newborn.
Sounds like you understand there is a mandatory 30 day probation violation penalty. Many or most judges will allow an alternative, like home monitoring. If you are able to get your license back, that would certainly help. Make sure you respond to the insurance ticket, that is an expensive ticket and you don't want it going to collections.
Speak to your attorney in advance of the hearing, and make sure you are doing anything you can to put yourself in the best situation. If you need more time to work on the license, your attorney can probably get you some time.
I'm not sure if I have a warrant out for my arrest what happens if I call and I do?? Do they send cops out to arrest me?
They won't, but I agree that you can just have someone else make the call for you if it would make you more comfortable.See question
I got cited March 28th still not in system. When will it be? It was a criminal citation.
In that court, it probably doesn't mean anything. The officers sometimes cite, but still refer the report to the prosecutor to make a charging decision. In most cases, they can take up to 2 years to decide whether to charge. In that situation, the citation becomes pretty meaningless.
I would recommend you make sure that the court, and the DOL, have your mailing address. If they do send you a summons for court, you want to get it so you don't miss a court date.
It is also a good idea to get a lawyer involved before charges get filed. They can sometimes influence that decision in a good way for you.
I just found out in 2013 I was issued a felony warrant for Unlawful issuance of bank checks and at the bottom it says that all Wash peace officers are ordered to arrest, I moved to CA before it was issued does that mean they won't arrest? Also it ...
Technically warrants don't have to expire, but judges tend to give them expiration dates to force the court to review the warrant periodically, to make sure they don't just linger around forever. You are subject to arrest while the warrant is active, and at the end of the ten years the court will likely re-issue the warrant for another ten years.
You should contact a lawyer who practices in that court, so they can work with you to get the case cleared up.
The tickets are from years ago but I don't have the financial means to get them paid off as they have been in collection for a long time. My husband left me (& out 4 daughters), won't pay child support and I can barely make ends meet as it is. Ple...
In light of some recent changes in the law, some courts are offering forgiveness programs on outstanding fines. Some courts also will pull the fines back from collections and set you up a payment plan, so you can avoid the collections fees and interest. If all else fails, you are left having to negotiate a payment plan with the collection agency. They will remove the hold on your license once that is done.
You may want to call the Northwest Justice Project, or Kitsap Legal Services; I think both agencies have resources that would be helpful to you.
I speak on my behalf (pro se ) the prosecution requests a motion in limine to barr the defendant from discussing the validity of license suspension and is granted by court over my objection , My obvious defense ...
Nothing you have described sounds unusual in a suspended license case, as frustrating as it is to you. Generally if the state can prove a suspension and that notice was sent, the court is going to disallow any argument about the reason for the suspension. It goes both ways, the state can't discuss why a person was suspended either, and for the same reason; it is not relevant to the factual question at issue for the jury, and may tend to influence their decision making improperly.
I agree with the others, it sounds like you would benefit from the assistance of a lawyer; not only to get you a better outcome, but also to explain what is happening in the process so you can understand the court's rulings and see that you aren't being railroaded.
I just found out the citation also had violation of ignition interlock written on there, what does that mean? That I was supposed to have an ignition interlock still installed in my car? I had the DUI last January... it was only for a Year that I ...
Unfortunately the IID requirement doesn't just expire; the machine has to actually be installed for 12 months, and there are some instances which can extend that time frame.
To get a reliable answer to your specific situation, you really need to talk to lawyer and let them go through the exact dates and facts of your case. That is the only way to get reliable advice.

When the officer submits his report to the prosecutor, they can file additional charges (DUI) if they think the evidence supports it. But based on what you have said here, it certainly does not sound like it could happen here. If the officer thought you were DUI, you'd know.See question
