H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Depends on what you are charged (violation numbers) but your probably have a criminal complaint and some tickets. The criminal complaint which you would generally get base don your description would have the possibility of up to 180 days in jail, probation and fines, the worst being the criminal record as it can stay with you for life. Get yourself one of the free in office consultations that most of us criminal lawyers offer this way you can learn exactly what you are facing.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Good question, but if your looking to get an l1 you will need to do a lot more than just open a company in the US. First visit the US maybe on a tourist visa and while here setup an in office consultation and speak to an immigration lawyer who also knows business formation law.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer More information is need to be provided to answer your question properly however in general yes the operator would be liable. If ticketed I suggest that you hire a good lawyer.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer I doubt anyone here would remember or even have the outdated books to tell you. I would think your best bet would be to call MVC if you had a surcharge from back in the day
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer More information would be needed, but generally its up to 2 years, but it can be shorter even up to only 90 days depending on who you hit. Speak to a lawyer so you know exactly how long you have, because if you wait too long you may lose the right to recovery any monetary damages.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Unfortunately it may, it all depends on what the officer has to say about it. Take pictures with you to court, however the law states that you must always stay to the right so being in the center of a road is not allowed. If you want to have the best chance of winning I suggest hiring a good lawyer. Most traffic ticket lawyers offer a free in office consultation, I would suggest that you set one up.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer A TRO has a much lower standard than a criminal charge. That being said many reason exist why a TRO could be dismissed where as those reasons have nothing to do and won't effect a criminal charge. Thus I suggest hiring a lawyer because if it doesn't get dismissed you may be looking at jail, probation, fines and a criminal record.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Unfortunately if you were covering for him that would be an obstruction charge and even possibly more. I would suggest that you setup one of the free in office consultations that most of us criminal lawyers offer. You can contact my office to setup one of these consultations at 1-800-9-RIGHTS or visit our website at www.getnotguilty.com. Many defenses exist to these charges which could keep you out of jail, but you need to take the first step and setup the free in office consultation.
