471 Questions Answered
- Q. Under what circumstances and how likely is that to happen
- A: Please email me directly so you are not putting statements on a public forum that could be monitored by the police or prosecutor.
- Q. I paid off a 9 year old ticket for disregarding a stop sign and as soon as I paid it the BMV placed a pending suspension
- A: First, if you had insurance at the time of the violation, contact your insurance company to send in proof and the suspension will be removed. If you did not have insurance, then your option would be to petition the court for specialized driving privileges, you can do this yourself, but if you do not follow all the requirements of the particular court and the statue it could be denied. Consider speaking with a local traffic law attorney.
- Q. Can a person that allegedly committed a crime as a juvenile be charged with the crime 11 years later as an adult?
- A: If the crime was committed as a juvenile then it should remain in juvenile court, unless waived to adult court.
