Generally speaking, not knowing the law is not a defense. You should seek a traffic attorney if you don't know what to say in Court. I will also seek the advice of an immigration attorney to fix your F-1 Out of Status as soon as you can. It is not a good idea to drive without a driver's license.

technically, the charges can come through quite a while after an event, but practically, if you don't get a ticket within a day or two, or at most a week, you are not likely going to get one. From the facts you mentioned, it doesn't sound like you should get any ticket in any case.

If those are his only traffic violations over that period of time he is not looking at a license suspension. However, his insurance is likely to keep going up with each ticket. He should go to court to try to keep this off his record or get a lawyer to help him with it.

If he is going into the service (for real not a "I think I might" ) then cop may move it down to a non-moving violation.

Otherwise, he gets points, his insurance will go up.

Possible a judge could drop it but there was a crash and the judge & cop will be concerned that he may not get the severity and needs the 2x4. The other person may be injured and your insurance has been informed I assume.

Depends on the light at the moment he clipped you.

If it was red, he was to stop.
