Q: Got dui Didn’t complete classes Warrant issued 8 years later caught What will likely happen in court when I show up
Reinstate me or jail time for running 8 years without handling it?
A: Best strategy to hire a local attorney who can recall the warrant. Some courts will vacate the class, others may make you complete it now. Either way, probably no significant penalty, if any.
A: How was the warrant served? Were you driving and stopped by law enforcement? If that is the case you were probably driving on a suspended license which is a more serious offense. You should definitely contact a local lawyer.
