The officer that saw the alleged traffic infraction would have to sign a supporting deposition saying so. If there was a trial, the officer who witnessed the infraction would have to testify. If the government just brought in the cop that wrote the ticket, but did not observe the violation, his...Read more »

If you do not already have an attorney representing you, consult with one immediately. If you do, speak to them about these issues. Your version of the events and the police version I am sure are going to be completely different, but that's what suppression hearing are for.
Depending on what the felony convictions was for and any other past criminal history, you may be eligible to seal that conviction pursuant to CPL Section 160.59. You should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney in regard to this matter.
You would need to go the clerk's office of that court and ask to see the court file (chances are they are going to have to order it from records for you). If the matter was not yours and the case was sealed, you will not be allowed to review the file.
If the Felony conviction was in NY, the answer is YES. There is a way to seal that conviction (depending on what is was) if you meet certain requirements. See NYS CPL Section 160.59 or contact an attorney to see if that can be accomplished.
What county is this case pending in? I would try and retain an experienced criminal defense attorney for proper representation. Legal Aid attorneys are very good. The only draw back is the tremendous case load they may have to carry. So, they may not be able to give the type of attention to...Read more »
It's quite possible you could be arrested for petit larceny if your employer realizes that you stole $$ and called the police. If contacted by law enforcement, do NOT make any statements to them and contact an attorney for proper representation immediately.
I was overseas from 2007 to 2018. Never knew about that speeding ticket. My license expired since 2012. When I went to renew my driving license thats when I found out about the incident. In the system its say COURT APPEARANCE . Will I be arrested ?
If you are not served with the subpoena, how would you know when to appear? Is this a felony or misdemeanor matter? Are you the complainant? Call me, if you want to discuss the matter at (516) 766-1878. -Mike.
Most cases can't be prosecuted without the complaining witness (you). So, if you really do not want to pursue it, do not sign the supporting deposition. If you already did that, do not show up in court or speak with the ADA again.
I am a first grade teacher and a parent dropped off a check in the office that was supposed to be made out for 6 dollars. When I finally got to the bank, it was deposited as 60. I didn't notice until weeks later. This check had sat in my desk and in the Elementary office for weeks before I ever... Read more »
Where did this occur (What County)? Who is accusing you of doing this? Was it deposited in a school account or your personal account? A lot of unanswered questions. Consult with an attorney in regard to this matter if you are being accused of a criminal offense.

If you were already sentenced on the DWAI, that can not be vacated by the court. You could however be sentenced up to 15 days in jail because of an alleged violation of your conditional discharge. What county is this case in? Consider hiring a lawyer to try and keep you out of jail.
