Now the probation officer claims, after the fact, that the judge didn't know about the bond violation and so she is pressing for a bond violation more than 2 months after sentencing. I assumed (and was advised by lawyers here) that the judge would know about the bond violation when he sentenced me but I am not sure he did. Can he impose sentence now on a bond violation despite the bond no longer being in effect? Or can he say it is a probation violation despite the fact that I wasn't on probation yet? I am really confused and concerned about the repercussions and I still have to face sentencing on the new charge.
Did you have an attorney for your original case? Was he/she aware of your new charge? This could be a major issue for...
I was stopped by the police because someone (they gave their name) said they witnessed me driving erratically. The police report never states that they the police witnessed me driving erratically and only followed me half a block.

Is there anyway to go after drunk driver, insurance company to cover loss of totaled vehicle?

Is there anywhere I can look to get an idea on what my probation my require? I am facing an owi 2nd.
I am considering taking a plea on my 3rd Owi to an owi 2nd. My attorney is supposed to get back to me by Friday, I am just anxious and I found this site. Can anyone tell me what the probation and license restrictions would be if I pled to an OWI 2nd? Jail time? These are the only criminal charges I have faced....meaning the owi's.
This is a question that will be best answered by your attorney because that person has or should have your unique...
I was arrested over 2 years ago for a DUI, and the case is still pending. I am searching for a new lawyer and should be going to trial within 2 months. I paid my attorney a good amount of money as a flat rate to include everything up til trial, with the agreement that if the case goes to trial, another flat rate would be paid. We were able to suppress a lot of key evidence, including all of my statements and the breathalyzer. The prosecution offered a plea bargain (careless driving), and I refused, because I have a very strong case that might actually win at trial. My attorney thought I should take the plea, and asked to be removed from my case (which the judge granted). It this reasonable and normal, or a violation of ethics?
Yes an attorney can move to withdraw at any time and if the judge allows it, which in your case they did. Are you...
My pretrial is still going on. My lawyer told me about this reduction today and I have to decide whether I accept it or take it to Jury trial that is scheduled in 2 weeks. I have a meeting with my lawyer next week, but I would like to ask other experts on this matter. Should I ask my lawyer that I can get reckless driving instead? If there are two options, impaired and reckless, Is reckless driving better option to take? One more question! (please answer this one as my lawyer says he is not sure about it) I'm in the process for my green card, is either OWVI or reckless going to affect my green card? Thank you.
Most Prosecutors/City Attorneys will not offer a Reckless on an OWI unless there are special circumstances (e.g.: low...
