I have a warrant for FTA for DUI that was dropped to Reckless driving. Judge says I didn't do my Victim Impact Panel & Alcohol
Awareness class but I did do it & gave the paper to my public defender, who was a fill in for my original PD at the time. Judge said I didn't need to come back to court as long as I turned in the paper. What can I do? How can I prove that I did that? It has been 1 1/2 years ago & I just recently found out about the warrant.
You can contact the PD office to get your file, ask the clerk for a copy of the court file, or you can try and get the...

What can I do to try and get my inter lock taken out early?
I had an inter lock installed in February of 2014 and the DOL told me I had to have it till may 2016. I called them to see if I could have it taken out early and was told to call the court. The court told me my case was closed and that I needed to talk to the DOL. I called them back and they said I had to have it for five years which doesn't make sense since it comes out in May 2016. I feel like no one really knows and no one cares to direct me to someone that does. Do I need to get a lawyer involved or am I just stuck with it till May 2016? I've had 2 DUI's and its been over five years since the last one. I've also had two years of alcohol class's. Please help
Unfortunately the you might be stuck with it for 5 years. If you were required to keep an interlock in your vehicle for...
