Sure you can! You even admitted to it! And you were observed driving recklessly! You best chance now is to keep your mouth shut. You did have a right to remain silent. Say nothing further to anyone except to a local criminal defense attorney! Good luck!

It would not be the job of the lawyer who represented the Defendant to do anything. It would be up to the recipient of the restitution to file a claim for the unpaid amount against the Defendant's estate.
Yes, you can. Is the reason the person is keeping your dog that he or she provided kennel services or medical care? If so, that person can file a claim against you in small claims or circuit court. Still, he or she cannot keep your dog as security against these debts, unless you or your wife, as...View More
Patience is a virtue here! I suggest that you contact your P.O. and be VERY POLITE! Ask for the status. Your P.O. may have submitted the paperwork to the Judge and is waiting on the Judge to sign it.
