I got a DUI in Salina KS in 2012. since then i got approved for a diversion agreement. signed it and made sure i initialed everything correctly. then i was approved to leave the state in 2013. When i went to the DMV to get a copy of my driver's license in 2014 in GA they informed me that it was suspended due to a FTA. so i called the courthouse bc i wasn't supposed to have a court date after the diversion was filed. They told me the diversion agreement wasn't initialed correctly so they didn't file it and therefore i had another court date. Now I'm suck in GA and i'm afraid if i just show up to walk-in court they'll lock me up.
If the diversion was never approved, then you MAY not have waived your rights to defend the criminal DUI by use of a traditional trial (as opposed to a trial on stipulated facts), and related charges in the 2012 matter. Given the passage of time, the Salina court might, possibly, have more difficulty in proving the elements of a criminal DUI - if the matter is taken to trial.
I suggest that you contact a DUI/criminal defense attorney in that location, that regularly appears in that court, to check out the matter, and your options.
Regardless, the court might consider setting aside any, potential, warrant that may have been issued - upon the entry of appearance of an attorney. You need to resolve this matter in order to work toward getting a valid driver's license.
