Every County Sheriff and court is dealing with this issue differently. Some are letting defendants out of jail on Home Confinemet depending on the nature of the crime, criminal background etc. You must speak with a lawyer from that county to see if there is a possibility of being released.

In most of the courts they are extending the Supervision dates due to the COVID court closures. If you have already completed eveything and the court has proof of it then there is nothing to worry about as the Supervison will terminate and not be a conviction.
the community service started in 3 weeks and navy relocated him to california two weeks later. He told judge this and he said well dont ever come back to florida or you'll be arrested. California gave him a license and so did illinois where we live now. Now illinois wont reissue his driver... Read more »
It is unclear from your questions whether the hold is in Illinois of Florida. I suggest that you call the Illinois DMV at 217-782-7065, give his Illinois drivers license number and ask what the hold is about and where it is from. Beware, they are closed now due to COVID and it may take awhile...Read more »
It is possible that the Supervision was revoked by the fine not being paid on time. I suggest you either call or go online with the courthouse you attended and see if the Supervsion was revoked and a conviction/Conditional discharge entered. If so, you have to return to court and ask the Judge...Read more »
Because it is over 25MPH over, it is classified as a Class B misdemeanor. I suggest that you contact an attorny in that cuonty and inquire what options are available. Every county and courthouse deals with these types of tickets differently and only a local lawyer can give you an idea about that...Read more »
Last night I got a ticket from Batavia police. My record is decent with no other moving violations for well over a year. Previously I used a lawyer for my daughters violations and it proved useful. But in this case I'm not sure a lawyer could do any better than the supervision option. So... Read more »
I agree that Supervision with that fine is a good outcome. Since you have not had any other tickets for awhile I don't think you need lawyer unless you have a CDL license or the speed was 26MPH over the limit
When reducing an aggaravated speed violation to petty offense with supervision 4 month, is there a criminal record and does this violation affect the immigration status, knowing that I am waiting for an application for permanent residence
it is not a criminal charge if reduced to a petty offense and shuold not have any effect onm your immigration status. If you have an Immigration lawyer you shuld double check with him, but in my expereice a petty offense speeding ticket never effected an immigration application or status. It...Read more »
I would definetly go to court and hiring a lawyer in your county. If you have two convictions (as opposed to Supervision) from the other two tickets a 3rd one can lead to a suspension. If you have a CDL it gets worse
If the timeline to have the class done has passed you have to Motion the case back in court and ask the Judge to vacate the conviction and reinstate the Supervision. That will remvie the conviction from your record. You should have the class done beforehand and provide proof of completion to the...Read more »
A normal petty offense speeding ticket will not effect an asylum case. If you are charged with a misdemeanor Aggravated Speeding ticket I suggest that you talk with your Immigrants lawyer or representative.
I have a CDL and I was pulled over for for a speeding ticket at 18 over.... instead of paying the ticket worried that it would go to my driving record I requested to plead not guilty and go to court in front of a judge not a jury. I drive for a school district and if convicted I could loose my job.... Read more »
I would certainly hire a traffic lawyer from the county where the ticket is from. With a CDL you have to be very careful as they are logged on your drivign record much differently than an non-CDL driver. Hopefully the lawyer can have the ticket amended to reduce the penalty.
I would hire an attorney for the Illinois ticket. If you have three convictions on your record you will get suspended if you are over 21 years old. Make sure whether the Arkansas tickets are logged in on your Illinois record becasue they will count
I paid the additional costs for court supervision and they said I would have to attend a class and they would send out a schedual which I never got and now the ticket is on my record. Is there anything I can do to get it removed
A Motion to Vacate must be filed with the court to bring the case back to court. You can explain the situation to the Judge and ask that the Court Supervision be reinstated and the permanent conviction be removed. You wil have to get the trafic school done. it would be wise to do it before the...Read more »
You can go to a DMV with ID and $120.00 to obtain a driving abstract or go to Cyberdriveillinois.com and search the Illinois DMV website on how to order one by mail A warrant in Indiana will have no effect
