Q. I am in the process of getting my Second Amendment Rights restored.< VA > I have 2 dismissed Domestics. Possible prob?
A: This perhaps may be problematic for you if one of them was dismissed according to a deferred finding statute. I would talk to a local attorney or a firm like ours that specializes in gun rights restoration. There is a difference between what a domestic violence charge could mean for state restoration of rights versus federal restoration.
Q. How much time does an officer have to file a reckless driving/speeding ticket from the date the ticket was written?
A: Mistakes in the system happen. The officer has technically until the court date. Your summons is your notice to appear. However, obviously this could cause some issues for the officer if it does not appear in the court's system or on their docket. This doesn't really mean your charges will then be dismissed. I would speak to a local attorney to assist you if you feel this is a serious Reckless by Speed charge. The judges in VB like to give jail time for driving over certain speeds.
Q. My son is 17 and recieved a ticket for failure to yield what can be done
A: Your son will go to juvenile and domestic relations court. I would seek out an attorney who is local to you that practices in that court frequently who can give you an idea of what the judges are like in your area. Obviously you and your son will potentially fair better if you have an attorney but one will not be potentially necessary. Perhaps your son should try taking a driving course before attending the hearing. Good luck!
