  1. Criminal Law Issues: Re: When Will a Foreign Nation Learn About Your Criminal Record if You Visit as a Tou

    You could ask the court that convicted you whether you criminal record has been shared with any foreign authority. I doubt it, but I can see why you'd want to be certain. If you had a lawyer, I would...
  2. Criminal Law Issues: Re: Can You Be Deported for a Domestic Violence Conviction

    If you have an unconditional green card, being convicted of this will not cause you to be deported. Save your money for the criminal attorney.
  3. Criminal Law Issues: Re: How Will Failure to Appear for a Reckless Driving Charge Affect Entry Into the U.

    Your instructor certification notwithstanding, you can't claim with any certainty OP will encounter significant trouble at entry into US. This is due to a variety of reasons, some of which you...
  4. Speeding Tickets: Re: Raising a Speed Trap Defense Based on the Age of a Speed Survey

    It does not. Unless you can state loud and clear that you were not speeding, don't say anything about your speed.
  5. Criminal Law Issues: Re: How Will Failure to Appear for a Reckless Driving Charge Affect Entry Into the U.

    I am aware of how the warrant system works, and I certainly never thought it is faxed "to every county, state and agency in the USA." I also believe the Feds will in fact check their own (national)...
  6. Criminal Law Issues: Re: How Will Failure to Appear for a Reckless Driving Charge Affect Entry Into the U.

    Because "the people working at customs" won't know about his outstanding warrant in California unless California authorities notify them. Obviously.
  7. Criminal Law Issues: Re: How Will Failure to Appear for a Reckless Driving Charge Affect Entry Into the U.

    For reckless driving, in California? Extremely doubtful. California often releases convicted illegal alien felons without notifying the Feds.
  8. Criminal Law Issues: Re: How Will Failure to Appear for a Reckless Driving Charge Affect Entry Into the U.

    It would have been possible to significantly delay your court appearance date. You can do 30 days online. I imagine if you had explained the circumstances it could have been much longer. It is even...
  9. Speeding Tickets: Re: Contesting a Speeding Ticket for 70 MPH in a 60 MPH Zone

    1) I imagine discovery will show this;
    2) https://fortress.wa.gov/wsp/smdsearch/
    3) I don't think this is worth paying an attorney for.

    Folks on this forum familiar with WA tickets will likely...
  10. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Ticket for Driving on a One-Way Road With No Signs Indicating it Was One-Way

    Clearly in this case the particular roadway, and not the highway were designated for one-way travel. However, shoulder is not roadway: NJSA 39:1-1. "Shoulder" means that portion of the highway,...
  11. Criminal Law Issues: Re: Coming Back to the U.S. with Pending Traffic Ticket

    Did you try the online lookup link I gave you earlier?

    You're saying in you letter above that no mail has been received from the court (since the ticket date?) at the address where you lived....
  12. Hearings and Trials: Re: Can I Represent a Friend if I'm Not a Lawyer

    Then we should all stop posting in this forum, except those who are lawyers?

    BTW - all laws are not made equal, and not all should be blindly followed. Didn't certain 18th century rebels violate...

    Re: The Legal Drinking Age Should Be Lower

    If you can't see that a person regarded mature enough to be a war combatant should also be regarded mature enough to decide whether and how much they should drink, then I can't help you. Hopefully...
  14. Hearings and Trials: Re: Can I Represent a Friend if I'm Not a Lawyer

    The exact definition of "practicing law" varies by state, and you have seen some quotes and opinions here on what it means in Washington. Regardless of that definition, of course you can advise your...
  15. Traffic Court Issues: Re: Attempted to Appear Based on the Date on a Ticket, but Was Already Defaulted

    First of all, let me say that the way they treated you was absolutely not proper. You promised to appear on the date stated on the ticket, and you kept that promise. Notwithstanding the fine print on...
  16. Criminal Law Issues: Re: Coming Back to the U.S. with Pending Ticket

    I doubt it will have any impact on your visa application. Neither will you have problems entering U.S., in my opinion. If you're pulled over by police, though, especially in New Jersey, there is no...

    Re: The Legal Drinking Age Should Be Lower

    Agree 100%, and nothing I've read in response can refute these argument you made:

    1) If you're old enough to die and kill for your country, you are certainly old enough to drink;
    2) No other...
  18. Defective Equipment: Re: How to Avoid Paying the Fine after Missing the Deadline for a Fix It Ticket

    If the court does not have walk-in arraignments and you can't schedule one online soon enough, come to the court in person to schedule one. Explain your situation and the clerk you talk to will...

    Parking Tickets: Re: Parking Ticket at My College

    I presume there is some kind of process in place to challenge the ticket, so follow the process. My guess is you will see the pictures during that process. Why do you need to see the evidence...
  20. Speeding Tickets: Re: Should I Fight This Speeding Ticket, Do I Have a Chance

    You could do Trial By Written Declaration but, if found guilty, you'd have to request Trial de Novo, or at least go to court for another arraignment, just in order to have an opportunity to ask for...

    Re: Alcohol Absorption and Blood Testing

    I said nothing about what is "allowed". I said that any felony or misdemeanor case in which the only evidence is the testimony of a single witness is extremely weak. As it should be.



    Let's put...
  22. Speeding Tickets: Re: "Speed to Fast for Condition of Road" Ticket After Hitting a Barricade to Avoid D

    Interesting discussion. The central question here is, does the fact that the defendant crashed in itself prove that he was driving faster than reasonable and prudent... yada yada. Since the proof...

    Re: Alcohol Absorption and Blood Testing

    "Common practice" is your opinion. My experience is different, and some of the other folks here share that notion. I'll grant you it can be denied and it sometimes is, but if a person challenges the...

    Re: Alcohol Absorption and Blood Testing

    The question is, of course, was the person indeed impaired. How do you prove that beyond a reasonable doubt? In some cases it is obvious. But I quoted above a claim from Speedy Gonzales that someone...
  25. Defective Equipment: Re: How to Avoid Paying the Fine after Missing the Deadline for a Fix It Ticket

    The court should have daily walk-in arraignments for traffic offenses, typically in the morning. Show up for one before 1/19 and ask the clerk to come before a judge. Then plead your case. Make sure...
