Michael’s answer: Unfortunately if the officer arrested you for dui, the officers version of facts he reports to the court will be different from yours. You will need to find a dui attorney that will help you navigate the problems you will face.

Michael’s answer: For the speeding- a fine and 2 points. The DUI- a mark on your history, increased insurance rates, stigma and a laundry list of other issues. Call an attorney and discuss your case in detail. You also need to do a ALS letter to save your license from suspension.

What are my rights as a defendant charged with driving on a suspended license, second offense (Georgia)?: In 2016 I was pulled over for an expired tag, and when the cop ran my license, to my surprise it came back suspended. Come to find out the suspension was a result of a FTA for a long-forgotten unpaid speeding ticket from NC in 2012. I was arrested, went to court and pled nolo to DWLS. The judge gave me fines, community service, and 12 m. probation. Subsequently I complied with all those terms. In May I spoke to my PO and she said I was all done, so I went back to life as normal... Until days later I came to a roadblock, provided my ID card and explained to the cop that I had been suspended but recently completed all requirements for reinstatement. Well surprise again, it came back as still suspended!! I was arrested for DWLS, 2nd offense, and given a new court date. Apparently, even though I completed the terms, NC still had a hold on my license for the FTA. I realize it's my fault for not knowing this, and not going to the DMV for a new license before driving. Regardless, what rights do I have going into the courtroom? I cannot afford a lawyer, but I doubt that I'm eligible for a PD. I need to avoid jail time... I'm the primary caregiver of my 2 small children. What can I do??

Michael’s answer: Step one- get your fta lifted in North Carolina. The probation had nothing to do with that. Step two get your license reinstated before court. Only after those two items can you try and negotiate in court.
