In February 2016 I entered into a year long plea in abeyance after driving without insurance. As part of my terms, I wasn't allowed to receive any additional charges for a year. In November 2016, I was charged for possession of marijuana, and in April 2017 entered into and then completed a year long plea in abeyance for this charge. Now, I have an order to show cause for receiving an additional charge during the first plea. As I already paid the $450 court fine in 2016, is it possible that I will be charged again or additionally? I'm assuming that I will be convicted for driving without insurance, but is there anything else they could charge me with that I should get a lawyer for (fines, license suspension, jail)?
Yes, the prosecutor could ask for an additional punishment. That could definitely include more fines.
Every answer is based on the facts given. Additional information or facts could change the answer. This answer does not create an attorney-client relationship.
