I am hoping to get a little insight based on personal

Hello, I am hoping to get a little insight based on personal experience. I am on probation for two charges of retail fraud (happened together and I am on a first offender program for both), but was unfortunately recently arrested for a DUI (no one was hurt and no accident). I am going to go to AA and volunteer there as well. What are my chances of going to jail / getting license revoked? I am a good person who just made a few bad mistakes. I am 26. I also have documented severe mental health issues that potentially played a factor. I have a master's degree and am a productive member of society. Please please please help me ease my worries, because I am simply waiting at this point and it's driving me mad, and I've imagined the worst possible case scenario.

I am an HOA president in Port Saint Luice Florida. My

I am an HOA president in Port Saint Luice Florida. My predecessor signed an "agreement for traffic enforcement on private roads." I asked the city attorney what rules I should distribute to the residents and he said the applicable state code referenced in the agreement Section 316(2)(b). The Port Saint Lucie Police Department is going to enforce the rules but parking infractions will be enforced as per the City ordinance. I am confused. If I only hand out the State rules as I have been told to do, who can the City enforce a stricter rule inside the HOA?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?Customer: Florida, Saint Lucie CountyJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Only the Enforcement Agreement. It does however have a termination clause that only requires 60 days notice.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: yes, what are the downsides to such agreements that invite the local authorities into a private community?

I have a CDL-A Lic and live in NY, I got a traffic ticket in

I have a CDL-A Lic and live in NY, I got a traffic ticket in PA with traffic code 3111 which based on what the officer said and research I did carries no points with it although it is classified as a moving violation (so shouldn't cause my INS rate to increase). My questions is 2 part. First and I'm pretty sure I already know the answer is whether or not, as my Lic is from NY I will get any points on my NY Lic. The second is the more critical, although with more research I am pretty sure that this ticket is not classified as a major or serious offense and although it will show up on my CDL-a due to the MCSIA rules I need to know if it will in any way jeopardize my CDL and therefore my job. I could try and hire a PA lawyer to get this dropped to a non-moving violation however given the minimal cost to the ticket if my job IE CDL is not in danger then I would just as soon pay the fine. If it matter I have a clean drivers LIC and have had for many years.

I was recently cited under 36 CFR 4.21() speed on federal

Hello,I was recently cited under 36 CFR 4.21(b) for excessive speed on federal grounds (US-89 in Utah in the Glen Canyon National Rec Area). Normally, this would be a state speeding traffic code infraction, but my understanding is that the federal government treats this as a Class B misdemeanor. Am I correct in this assumption, and what are the implications on background checks and my future career? I am a young working professional engineer with a spotless driving record.

Man driving 3:00 am less than a mile from home when stopped

Man driving 3:00 am less than a mile from home when stopped by Police b/c driver's side headlight was out. Arrested for DWI b/c he refused to do the fst. In video does not appear to be intoxicated, no slurred speech, etc. Video shows as police car approaches from opposite direction he lowers his high beam & that's when officer turns around & stops him. In video I notice when he lowers his high beam the driver side main headlight is out but there is a secondary light that appears almost as strong as the passenger side headlight.Q: How does the statute address this legal issue? Will a secondary light source suffice?
