Find out if Wyoming ticket was reported to Illinois.

If not, then you have no convictions on your record and need to contest the new ticket.

You can't shoot them (I'm assuming you are not in your car). If you did you need to ask that this be taken down by the website, avoid any questions on social media, and contact an attorney at once.

If he doesn't know how to plead, he should probably plead not guilty. It is generally not wise to plead guilty at the arraignment. If he is not happy with his public defender, he should seek private counsel.

In many states, a severance package is not required. As such, a company may have no obligation to pay out a severance package even if it is the right thing to do. Consult with a Wyoming employment attorney to find out your rights. Good luck.
