I got a PBJ in MD in 2008 for Disorderly Conduct (CR), Fleeing arrest (TRAF), and DUI (TRAF). Are any of these felonies?
I got thirteen citations and all but these above were "nolle prosequi". I just want to know if any of these above count as felonies? I can see all of my information on the Maryland Case Search site but they do not label whether they are felony or misdemeanors and I have to tell a new job what misdemeanors I have been convicted of. Thank you.
It is best if you consult with your attorney in MD to answer this question. In the alternative, you can contact the...
Can my DWI case be dismissed if the officer did not cite me for what he originally pulled me over for? (Texas)
I was originally pulled over for speeding and although I had a couple of beers a few hours before he arrested me for DWI. I was never given a citation for the speeding though. Is this grounds to dismiss my case?
Not at all. It is actually often that once an officer is going to make an arrest for a criminal offense that they don't...

I hired an attorney for a DWI case and a resisting arrest case. The 2 charges happened at the same time.
My attorney stated that he would charge me $2000 for each offense. He never showed up or often showed up after the pretrial hearings. We had 3 pretrial hearing and he was on time in only 1 hearing. I paid him a total of $4000 to represent in my cases. In the end he advised me to take a plea bargain in which i pled guilty to DWI and the resisting arrest would be dropped. My question is did I overpay my attorney for accepting the plea bargain? I never received a copy of the agreement or letter of engagement that I believe they had me sign. Can I ask for some of my fees to be reimbursed since he didn't fight my case and instead offered me to take the plea bargain? Or will it be more costly if I sue for misrepresentation?
You can ask for fees if you want to but I doubt you'll get them. It doesn't appear to me that you're entitled to them....
When can my husband apply for naturalization citizenship if he got a Reckless Driving in 2012 and a DWI in 2014?
My husband wants to get his citizenship so I can get my green card. But the problem is that he got arrested on 2012 for reckless driving and recently got a DWI. My question is when will he be able to apply for citizenship to the USCIS? And also will I be able to get my green card if I'm living here illegally, even though I entered the country with a tourist Visa? Or there's nothing to do about it.?
Five years of Good Moral Character are required. The rest is a matter of facts including whether you would be able to...
I got arrested for DWI, but no alcohol was found in my blood or breathalyzer. I was not drunk either. What happens next?
I got pulled over for speeding 15 miles over the speed limit, but I still got arrested for DWI even when I passed the Breathalyzer test and had no alcohol in my system. I also had a specimen of my blood taken. Will there be other substances found in my blood even when I did not admit to taking any drugs in my system? This is also my first offense. What happens next?
A full tox screen will be run on your blood and if you show any positive finding for a narcotic drug or pot in all...
