A: You just need to own up to it and if there is something outstanding get it taken care of. Hire a lawyer to go with you if possible and let them deal with getting you the best outcome possible. Good luck.
Q. pulled over, cop chase's passenger who ran. how long am I supposed to sit there and wait for cop not being under arrest?
A: You can't leave. However don't make any statements to the police as they may have identification issues etc if the passenger ran and they aren't able to identify you.
Q. What happens after pressing charges through the magistrate's office?
A: No need to worry about subpoena it's beyond your control. The warrant would have been issued by the magistrate, or not, if there was no probable cause.
Q. Hello so me and my boyfriend got in argument and no physical contact or any hitting was involved but how ever he left
A: It's up to the prosecutor to move forward or not. If you are the only witness then they would need your testimony to convict. It's best for you to probably retain a lawyer for an hour to go over everything with you.
Q. In the Commonwealth of Virginia, if a school bus is in motion and is approaching with the red lights flashing, and the
A: The bus has to be stopped read the statue. They must be alleging the bus was actually stopped.
Q. If the attorney don't show up on a court date for a reckless driving in VA, who will be at fault ?
A: Your lawyer should advise you if you need to appear in court or not. Since courts require your presence even with a lawyer. Get it in writing from your lawyer on whether you need to appear or not.
Q. Is it possible to get my speeding ticket dismissed due to missing information?
A: If you hire a lawyer they might be able to help get it reduced or dismissed.
Q. Could i get out of a ticket if the officer put the wrong color car on the ticket?
A: Give it a try and see you never know.
Q. What are my chances?
A: Every court is different at that speed. Talk to a traffic lawyer in the location you got the ticket. Where I practice some judges give you the chance to do 100 hours of community service to stay out of jail and avoid a license suspension. Other judges you are going to jail for 1-30 days no matter what you do and getting a license suspension and high fines. The best courts will consider reducing with a lot of community service.
