Was that the only ticket that you received? If so, get a letter from the dealer that it was their vehicle and proof that the car was re-registered. You can have an attorney to represent you and you would not even have to appear.
When I was brought back to the police headquarters the officer instructed me to look at the wall. NOTE: I was not given a clear and unequivocal warning that a chemical test was being performed and the consequences of not performing the test.

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 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.

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.
