If your probation is revoked for a charge that has been threw out. Will they did reinstate or revoke and incarcerate
My boyfriend is waiting to go to court for probation revocation. But the charge that intentionally revoked him has been dropped. So I was just wondering if they would just reinstate his probation or possibly give him jail time
These are questions he should be asking his lawyer. No one here has enough information to even guess. That the...
What happens when you're pulled over and find out that your license has been suspended for a previous DUI, but were unaware?
My brother was convicted of a class c misdemeanor dui a while ago and has almost completed his probation. Just the other day he was pulled over and was told that his license is suspended for a few years. He says that he was unaware of the suspension, and now he has to go back to court. What kind of consequences could he be facing, and is there anything he can do to avoid further legal trouble since he didn't know about the suspension?
In this situation, the first thing to do is get the Disposition or Final Order/Sentencing Order from the Clerk. You...

My son had his license suspended for 5 yrs. He had 2 yrs left.
He hasn't been in trouble for 3 or so years. Was not on any probation. He had a moped that was a 150 cc, instead of a 49cc. He had been stopped 3 x by police but they only stopped him to check for drugs like they everyone here. They turned a blind eye to the fact that his moped was more than a 49cc and he wasn't supposed to be driving it without a license. Scott was driving this moped for 2 years with them knowing it and never saying anything. However, the police Dept decided to crack down this week and start arresting people. He was one. Now he's in jail facing a felony and a habitual traffic violator charge. How much time is he looking at doing? Can this successfully contested? It's Jackson County, IN.
If he's being charged with the offense of Habitual Traffic Violator, as a Class D Felony, he is facing a sentencing...

Illinois DUI alcohol and drug evaluation, but I live in Indiana....
I'm am taking a DUI plea in Illinois for a DUI charge I received recently. I need to get an alcohol and drug evaluation for the court to accept the plea. I have entered an Intensive Out Patient program here in Indiana, where I reside, however the assessment paperwork I received from this treatment center does not suffice for Illinois my lawyer says. He informed me that I need to get an evaluation that categorizes my risk level (miminal, moderate, etc) however I'm not sure where to get that done in Indiana that will satisfy the Illinois Courts. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Illinois's alcohol and other drug abuse ("AODA") requirements are very specific/stringent. Your best bet may be to...
