A: It is certainly a good idea to check and have backup in these situations. First off, with all of this you need to ensure you have the documents handy, as you may need them if there are issues.

Orders and sentences expire according to their terms, and when they expire they become void absent some other overlapping order or other instrument to supplement or replace them.

That being said, it is unwise to play with fire as repeated allegations with the same subject aggravates potential charges IF new allegations are made.
