There is no one answer to this question, way too many variables (in my opinion). I would say call a lawyer asap and talk about the details of what happened, and he or she can talk you through some options.
The short answer is that yes, they do sometimes follow up after paying. From the description, she committed a crime. She might or might not ever hear directly from GEICO (except maybe to cancel her insurance). Much more likely is that if they found out about this, they reported it to the police....Read more »

You can of course report what is happening to local...Read more »
Different courts handle these differently. First if there is a public defender on the case, ask her or him what the process is. If not, or if you don't know who that is, then call the court and ask them the procedure. You can do this without a lawyer and there are no costs. But if there is a lawyer...Read more »

There is no exact answer. Depends on the jurisdiction, who the judge is, and the facts of the case. The most important factor about the facts of the case is probably whether it was alcohol related or not.
If the person appears out of custody, particularly if they appear with a lawyer, they...Read more »
In Washington the short answer is yes, that can be done. There is no requirement for an after hours warrant that the evidence is going to be gone soon. The judge might not be happy about having her evening interrupted, but there's PC it doesn't matter what time the warrant is obtained.
