Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
About a 95%+ chance the situation is over. Usually if they are going to prosecute you they will do so right there and either arrest you or give you the ticket. In these kinds of cases it is extremely rare to get a ticket in the mail later.
I am not sure if they were calling me back out of the cab. Some other lady was supposed to be in the cab before me. The cab driver told the sheriff my location was closer. When would I know if they are going to do anything.
You will know within a week but there is no need to worry. They would have had the cab stopped if they wanted you.
Okay thanks. I would basically lose my job if they charge me. I guess I won't be going out anymore.
I don't think you need to worry. i've never seen anyone charged with this set of facts.
Thanks. I appreciate it. One last thing and then we can close. When he called in my license what was that about.
Checking for warrants.
ok thanks for your help
You're welcome and best wishes to you.
Please ask any follow up questions in this thread. When all of your questions have been answered, then I would ask that you give a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest Excellent) since that is the only way I get credit for my work and also please consider clicking "BONUS" as a nice way of saying "thanks" for a job well done, although this is neither required nor expected.
