I am sorry, your previous expert has opted out, but she was 100% correct in what she has provided you. Unfortunately, a limitation of this service is that we are forbidden from engaging in any actions that could be considered a practice of law, so we cannot assist you in filing the motion or writing the motion and the booklet she provided you is as close as we can legally get with you without crossing that line. I thank you for understanding that.
With that said, if your son is in jail, there is another option available to him and that is hiring an attorney to appear in the other county for him on his court date and represent him there in absentia, meaning he would waive his actual appearance in Hennepin County for the purpose of that hearing and have an attorney appear there for him to represent him. If you cannot afford an attorney to represent him to do this, then you need to contact the public defender's office in Hennepin to see if they would be willing to take on the case under these circumstances.
However, the other attorney was correct in that the court has the discretion in these matters and if Hennepin is not cooperative with this, then he would not get any motion to allow him to appear approved, since it would require the law enforcement officials in the county he is now in to transport him to Hennepin and for a traffic court appearance they are not going to be willing to incur the costs of doing this and run the risk that Hennepin could refuse to release him back to them.

PLEASE NOTE WELL, LEGAL ANSWERS TAKE MORE THAN “MINUTES” TO PUT TOGETHER AS WE ARE DEALING WITH LAWS OF 50 STATES PLUS FEDERAL LAWS, AS WELL AS DEALING WITH OTHER CUSTOMERS, SO PLEASE BE PATIENT IT WILL BE MORE THAN “MINUTES” IN SOME CASES BEFORE YOU GET A RESPONSE, BUT BE ASSURED YOU ARE NOT BEING IGNORED.
There can also be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.
