That depends on whether there has been a hearing. Many cases have been put on hold so you may not have missed anything. However, if you have missed a hearing, there is likely a warrant out for your arrest. It would be wise to have an attorney in MN retained to assist you with this to ensure you...Read more »
I was stopped by a MN state trooper for speeding (69mph in a 60 zone, noting that the Trooper reduced it from 74). From the point that I turned onto this road to where I was pulled over, there were no speed limit signs (I have a dashcam). I have a clean driving record and the vehicle has Ambulance... Read more »
Your best bet is to contact a lawyer directly and have a consultation. I don't recommend trying to handle your case based on things you read on the internet. If your goal is to keep your record clean, hiring a lawyer will give you the best chance to do that.
I recently received this speeding ticket apparently in 2004. I don't understand, why I just got it now? The address I currently live wasn't on my drivers license then. I currently live in a different state from the issued ticket. I'm confused as in what I should do.
I stopped appropriately behind a school bus, and when that one went, I went too. There was a second bus stopped at the corner, let the first bus by, and then put the stop sign out AS I was passing it and started honking at me. He did not put out the stop arm until I was right next to him. And he... Read more »

She recently had a fight after school with a another girl. After the altercation the police interviewed several witnesses and said they will be charging. How can I protect her? What are her legal rights as a 16 year old.
This is a serious felony offense. The best thing you can do for your daughter is help her retain an attorney. An attorney will be able to ensure her rights are protected and may even be able to keep this from resulting in a conviction.

The smart move would be to get a lawyer retained. Crimes of domestic violence require an arrest, but a lawyer may be able to help make that process easier. In addition, crimes of domestic violence carry many collateral consequences you will want to try to avoid.
Several weeks ago my daughter (17) was shoulder-checked hard and intentionally by a coworker (30s) who was upset with her. She told her managers but nothing was done. She didnt report it to anyone else as she feared getting fired (the coworker is friends with the boss). She has recently quit that... Read more »
A common condition of probation for a DWI is that you not have any driver’s license or insurance violations. This ticket could result in a probation violation. I recommend having an attorney assist you to minimize the consequences of this ticket.
I was suffering from a period of Incapacity due to third degree burns, burn surgery, and an eighteen month recovery from those burns and the surgery. I could not adequately represent myself. I had my Constitutional rights trampled all over. They did not provide what was subpoenaed for that trial.... Read more »
It sounds like you have a complex civil appellate matter. You should consult privately with an attorney who handles civil rights appeals. You can use the search function on this site and give a few a call.
If the case really was resolved with a stay of adjudication and you completed probation successfully, a conviction should never have been entered. Sounds like there may be an error by court staff. You should have a lawyer help you get this corrected.
