I received a notice to appear for arraignment (Criminal

I received a notice to appear for arraignment (Criminal Complaint) for a violation of municipal code 91.8105 (No building permit – failure to correct) from the Office of the City Attorney in Los Angeles. I was not aware that the small addition to the house was unpermitted until I received the notice to appear. I live in Texas but hired an attorney in L.A., he stated that I do not have to physically appear for arraignment, he will be there to represent me. Is this factual?

I have a question about a driving ticket received in

Hello, I have a question about a driving ticket received in Indiana, 9-25-8-2 of the I. C. CODE. My brother borrowed a truck of mine because he was temporarily without transportation. I made a bad mistake because I let the insurance on the truck lapse. I actually didn't even realize it was due. Totally my mistake but not intentional. He had the truck for several months and it was out of sight out of mind.Unfortunately a lady rear ended him a few days ago as he was waiting for traffic to clear to make a left turn. He did have his brake lights on and his turn signal was on as well. There is a witness to those facts.He received a ticket for operating a motor vehicle without insurance. He called me when the accident occurred and I called the insurance company only to find the coverage had lapsed. He didn't know there was not insurance on the truck when he borrowed it. Again, totally my fault.My question is this, should he just go ahead and plea "Admit", sign the ticket and send the check (which of course I will pay)? He risks having his license suspended for 6 months.He isn't angry about that but I feel terrible about it. Or, should he go before the judge on his court appearance date and attempt to explain that he was unaware there was no current insurance on the vehicle he borrowed?Thank you in advance for your advice.Craig K.
