Lisa’s answer: it is possible that the other tickets were in a different jurisdiction. If so, you would have been expected to appear on those too. Since you didn't, you have been held in contempt of court and will need to unravel a mess. It may also be possible that the tickets were from the same incident to which you already pled. Under this scenario, you may be able to be release from any obligation under them since you already plead to some of them but only in very limited circumstances. In all honesty, there are too many variables for you to try to tackle this on your own. You should consult with a great criminal defense attorney for more insight.

Why am I being charged for felony forgery, when I did not commit any act of falsifying documents or forging anyone's name?: A check came in the mail via Fed Ex with my name on it, I took it to a local place to cash it and they did. A few months later Im being arrested for felony forgery. Im totally lost!!

Lisa’s answer: Felony forgery can involve not just forging someone else's name, but tendering a in instrument (a check) which purports to be a real check, when it is in fact a fake one. You do need to consult with a great local criminal defense attorney asap. This type of case is not uncommon but more detail is needed to be able to give you a more specific response and the internet is not the best place to post details of a pending criminal case.

Proving good moral character with traffic violations in N400 application.: I have 14 tickets total which include speeding, red light photo enforcement, and parking (meter expired) tickets. On one of the tickets I didn't pay it on time which led to my license suspended for one day. It was reinstated the very nexy day. What can I do to prove good moral character with this many tickets. I am planning to do in class drivers improvement course. I am thinking will getting letter vouching for my character from my employer and/or doing volunteer work in my county will help me prove good moral character? What are my chances of getting approved for Citizenship with this. Thanks

Lisa’s answer: Traffic tickets are not generally considered crimes of moral turpitude for the purpose of immigration eligibility. That said, the sheer number of them could have a negative impact on your case. I highly suggest you look for an immigration attorney who also handles criminal cases. Arturo Corso, in Gainesville, GA, is one attorney I know of who does both off the top of my head.
