Legal Answers
394 Questions Answered

Q. on unsupervised probation in MN 4 speeding ticket. can get no same or similar. Got a speeding ticket in NE. Will MN know
A: Yes. But depending on timing and other factors, luck might favor you. There would be more incentive to delay and fight the NE ticket, in that situation, with or without a lawyer in NE.
Q. what can be done about a theft of $65 that happened a year ago
A: Assuming the person who received the citation is asking what to do: First, respond to the citation. A citation is a Summons to court. It requires the person named to respond to arrange a court date. Failure to do so, will lead to a default conviction of a petty misdemeanor; or an arrest warrant for a misdemeanor (depending upon the charge). Either way, bad. Instead, call to set up a court date. Once that's done, most set a goal of avoiding a conviction record. A criminal conviction can be extremely costly over time, especially for theft. It's much easier to avoid; but quite difficult to attempt to fix after too late. So make best efforts to avoid "conviction" now. A criminal defense lawyer will help you get a better outcome. If you're unemployed or in poverty, apply for the public defender.
Q. If I’m underage minor who is sober and I’m driving a minor who has drank alcohol and we get pulled over
A: Based on the information provided, the answer should be "no." But furnishing liquor to a an underage person can be charged as a crime, for example. Drive carefully.
