Obviously this is a North Carolina matter, so you need a competent North Carolina attorney. You definitely need an attorney today, and someone to drive you to Court. Try to get your License reinstated immediately. Take Insurance, Registration and your TNDL to Court with you.
They say 3 witnesses say I did it but I have 5 witnesses that can say I didn't and the video footage they have from my neighbor showing a vehicle leaving my driveway not being drove by me can show that I left 30 mins to an hour before it did what can I do when they seem determined to arrest me for...

It is not illegal if your neighbor thought you committed a crime involving his property. If there is a warrant then you are going to need to call the Sheriff's department and see if they want you to turn yourself in. Because of COVID-19 , people with warrants are being booked then released on a...Read more »
Depends on the charges and situation. A lawyer can discuss his case with the district attorney and possibly negotiation reinstatement of probation. Without knowing more information about the case it's hard to give you a definite answer. Maybe you could ask the question again with more detail.
Depends. If there were illegal drugs around you when you overdosed then you can be charged with simple possession and possibly drug paraphernalia. A new charge will violate your probation. Depending on the drug, there could be mandatory jail time on top of the jail time you might serve for...Read more »

I do not believe there is a Statute or Case Holding as you state. However it appears that the State was not prepared to prosecute your Boyfriend, so the Case was Dismissed. Statute of Limitations can vary from 1 year to several, as it depends upon the Crime alleged. It is odd you are concerned...Read more »
If you were following too closely then the police had a right to stop you for a traffic violation.
Once stopped , the police needed a reason to search your car. If the police saw drugs in plain sight, smelled possible marijuana, you consented to a search of the car , (along with a couple...Read more »
It helps to support a Motion To Suppress for an illegal stop. But issuing the Citation then is not absolutely dispositive. Suppression Motions are difficult. If the Defendant is still at Sessions, then his lawyer needs to get ready for a thorough Preliminary Hearing.
I filled for a concealed carry permit through the state of TN. After my background check was conducted they found that I was convicted of criminal damages to property- misdemeanor when I was 17, this was 14 years ago.

You will have to provide the State the requested documents. The Department of Safety issues the HCP, and if they do not want to, they don't. If denied, you can file a declaratory action in General Sessions Court very soon after the denial. Denial of a HCP does not mean you necessarily have a...Read more »
You will serve 30% of 2 months ( 60 days) before you will get work credit (two days credit for every one day served, if you qualify). The sheriff at the jail is the official calculator of your "out date" . You should receive that out date within the first week of being in jail. . It will...Read more »

Hire a competent attorney now, no PD's. Do not plead guilty to Domestic Violence under any circumstances, unless there is Diversion.
