I am wondering about how courts are dealing with this COVID mess and the required hours for community service. Instead of doing Sentence-to-serve, I have been approved to do community service but have been having a difficult time fulfilling my hours. My deadline has already been pushed back twice...

First offense. First ticket ever, actually. I am not sure if I need to bring my court paperwork and paperwork from the program, both inpatient and outpatient I went to. It is impossible to find out what I need to do. I found one site that says completed court requirements, but I am on self... Read more »
DVS controls getting your DL back. There is at a minimum a reinstatement fee of $680.00, proof of insurance and you will need to take the DWI written test. There may be additional requirements. Check with DVS.

There is no way to answer this question given the information in this question. I understand that this is your recitation of what occurred in the trial. I presume that the county attorney would view things much differently. The only way to assess the legitimacy of your conviction would be to...Read more »
My mother passed away Nov 16th my brothers were supposed to give me 300,000 so I if a divorce would not be homeless it was a personal wish of my mother. I even hired an attorney but my brother with the funds the most said I don't care about you And I wrote one more letter for him to explain... Read more »
None of that has anything to do with the validity of the citation. It sounds to me as if you are providing reasons why you might not have been watching your speed. None of these are defenses to the charge. It might be that the prosecutor will agree to negotiate the speed down or keep the ticket...Read more »
I was behind the bus but passed it before it started to slow down or put on it’s lights. I received a call for cop who told me the bus driver gave them my plates but I could fight the ticket in court. I have no witnesses as I was alone in my car. Is it possible to fight and win this? I was... Read more »
Paying the fine is a guilty plea and it will go on your record. It will also likely affect your insurance rates. You should consider challenging the ticket. An attorney can help make success more likely.
Paying the fine is the equivalent of a guilty plea. I would contact the court tomorrow and set something up with a hearing officer. The court won’t do anything with the citation today because it’s Sunday.
I am being told you can and I am being told you can't from 2 different people. One is saying Minnesota doesnt have castle law or stand your ground law so you have to flee first. The other is saying you can just pull out gun and kill the person without trying to flee.
This question is not particularly clear. If you are asking about a prior used to enhance to a gross misdemeanor, all they need is the fact of the conviction. The state doesn’t have to reprove the prior offense. Contact me directly if this does address your question.
The fact that they did nothing illegal. They were accused of pointing a laser pointer at a police officer, but from what we've found so far, pointing a laser pointer at an individual is not recognized as a crime in MN by any means. It is a felony to point one at an aircraft, we know. They are... Read more »
So it is difficult to know what the legal basis for holding this individual might be without seeing the police reports. O would presume that if your friend is charged with assault 4 that your friend is accused of doing more than simply pointing a laser pointer at someone. There is not a ton that...Read more »
My fiance was booked on a false domestic violence charge and all day today I've been trying to get it where he gets released he was booked yesterday for and he was processed yesterday but didn't have court today he has court tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. and I told them that it wasn't a... Read more »
Yes, you should be able to turn yourself in earlier. The turn date is usually a deadline as opposed to a date certain. I would contact the appropriate jail and let jail staff know that you would like to turn yourself in early. That should not be a problem for you.
Not sure if CO means Colorado. If so you need to ask the question in a Colorado forum. If you mean county, they can hold you until the county with the warrant picks the person up - usually a couple of days.
Of course officers make mistakes. It's hard to know why it is listed as your second violation without more information. I'd suggest getting an attorney on board and the attorney can help sort this issue out. You certainly don't want something to show up, particularly if it wasn't you.
See to my left because of the sun glaring in my eyes. So I proceeded with caution by letting my foot off the brake. I didn't even touch the gas peddle yet when the other car hit me. A witness said I ran the stop sign going over 30. That's a lie because I stopped for longer then required... Read more »
It’s unclear to me whether you are criminally charged or just dealing with the insurance aspect of this. The insurance company should not be contacting you directly, instead their insurance company should be discussing the matter with your insurance company. Ultimately, the decision of who to...Read more »
I have a violation for a medicine I was prescribed showing up as methamphetamine. I am prescribed adderall but I'm a veteran they give multiple brands of dextroamphetamine which is active ingredient in adderall. The VA has well documented uas when I went for PTSD therapy. So they know what... Read more »
You should directly contact a criminal defense attorney. There are times when probation can be extended. A violation can also be filed up to sixth months after probation has expired. But you cannot be violated for substances that you’ve been prescribed.
There isn’t really a question here. But domestic assault can be charged based on statements from other witnesses, the 911 call, and the physical evidence. It is not up to the alleged victim to “press” charges. Get an attorney.
